Here is some more info.

Minnesota State Reps. Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa), Cindy Pugh (R-Chanhassen), John Petersburg (R-Waseca), Jim Newberger (R-Becker), Greg Davids (R-Preston) and Jim Nash (R-Waconia) have introduced a bill to prevent motorcyclist profiling.

Take Action
Please ask your representative today to support H.F. 59.

Minnesota H.F. 59 would prohibit law enforcement officers from using “the fact that a person rides a motorcycle or wears motorcycle-related accouterments as a factor in deciding stop and question, take enforcement action, arrest, or search a person or vehicle.”

It would also require law enforcement agencies to develop a statewide model training policy to reduce and eliminate motorcycle profiling.

“Many motorcyclists never experience profiling and most police officers do not profile. This bill would provide that riders enjoy the same protections as other motorists and never have to experience profiling,” said Wayne Allard, vice president of government relations at the American Motorcyclist Association.
