Coalition of Independent Riders 

The C.O.I.R. is not a membership funded organization or club. It is a registration of independent riders from all walks and rides of the motorcycle community. Independent cruisers, sport and dirt-bike riders and even non-riders alike who understand that protecting our "Right to Ride" is everyone's responsibility. We must all do our part to keep motorcycling a true expression of freedom! When a Call-to-Action comes down the pike you will be contacted and asked to help implement the action whether it is a letter writing campaign or showing up at a state capitol.  . - Dr. Jim McKinney US National Commander C.O.I.R.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I need to belong to a motorcycle club or riding association to be a part of the C.O.I.R.?
A. No, the C.O.I.R. is not an organization but an affiliation of independent motorcyclists who are prepared to do their part in helping to keep motorcycling a true American expression of freedom.

Q. Is the C.O.I.R. a motorcycle rights organization or MRO?
A. No, the C.O.I.R. is not a MRO or a member "funded" type organization. However, some MRO's play a very important role in helping to identify and design the "Fight for our Rights" type campaigns that the C.O.I.R. support with manpower.

Q. What is a "Call-to-Action?"
A. When a MRO or a "rights" association needs support to help implement approved grass roots strategies such as letter writing to legislators, the C.O.I.R. will be called upon to assist with the manpower to help implement the "Action." The C.O.I.R., working in concert with M/Cs and riding associations and local offices of Emergency Management is also prepared to offer post disaster assistance to needy families and individuals if called upon to do so.

Q. Who are the US Defenders?
A. US Defenders are men and women from the Confederation of Clubs and the C.O.I.R. who volunteer to represent their different clubs and groups. The US Defenders receive training in grass roots strategies and then take that training back to their clubs and groups. Find out more about these dedicated men and women by attending a regional COC or NCOM meeting in your area.

Q. How does the Confederation of Clubs (COC) or the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM) and the Coalition of Independent Riders (C.O.I.R.) work together?
A. NCOM is the parent organization of all Regional COC's and COM's and working together with the CO.I.R. We can make a difference!
