Motorcycle Riders Foundation Vice President Michael "Boz" Kerr Passes
Away

Early this morning we received the most sad and unfortunate news that
Michael "Boz" Kerr passed away peacefully in his sleep overnight.  He
had
just returned from a very successful Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF)
Beast of the East Motorcycle Rights Conference.  At the time of his
passing "Boz" was the current Vice President of the MRF and Chairman of
the Legislative Committee.  Prior to his being elected Vice President he
served as an MRF Board Member in the capacity of MRF PAC Chairman. "Boz"
was instrumental in setting up the stand alone MRF Awareness and
Education
Organization (MRFA&E) and was the driving force behind the upcoming
National Motorcycle Awareness day in Washington D.C., known as "Bikers
Inside the Beltway".

"Boz" was also a past President of the Chicago Chapter of ABATE of
Illinois and recently retired as Chairman of ABATE of Illinois FEDPAC.
In
the past year he was awarded the MRF Presidents Cup of Distinction and
ABATE of Illinois' highest honor, the Rich Neb Award.

"Boz" was the finest political operative I have ever had the privilege
to
work with and his concern and passion for motorcycle rights and his
genuineness will be greatly missed by the MRF and the entire
motorcycling
rights community.  We have certainly lost one of the great ones in our
movement.  Words cannot express the amount of sadness and the profound
impact that losing another one of our own will have.  Our heartfelt
sympathy goes out to his wife and family, his ABATE family, and his MRF
family", said MRF President Kirk "Hardtail" Willard.

"Boz" was well known for his speeches, such as the "Greatest
Generation",
"Mr. Jones", and most recently "Making Thunderbirds; long, low, lean,
and
fast".  Godspeed brother, you will be missed.
