28 | WheelsOfGrace.com | Issue 52 HANDLEBAR NEWS momentous life achievements. Riding motorcycles has been one such outlet - especially new motorcycles that are groundbreaking, like Harley- Davidson's first electric motorcycle, LiveWire ™. Diego Cardenas, a California resident, was hoping to spend June 30, 2020, in Spain celebra ng his 50th birthday. This Spring, he knew he was going to need a new plan, but he wanted it to be something he was passionate about - a trip he could do that allowed him to maintain social distancing but also be memorable and unique. So, he set on a new plan, riding his LiveWire motorcycle from the U.S. Mexican border to the U.S. Canadian border using the West Coast Green Highway, WCGH. The WCGH is a network of electric vehicle DC fast charging sta ons located every 25 to 50 miles along Interstate 5 and other major roadways in Washington, Oregon, and California. "I wanted to be a part of Harley- Davidson history and have my future grandkids be able to talk about how their grandfather was the first H-D electric motorcycle owner to do such a ride," said Cardenas. "I wanted to show the world that electric charging infrastructure is growing and be an inspira on for others to try riding electric motorcycles like the LiveWire." On June 22, Diego started his epic trip from San Ysidro, CA. He rode over 1,400 miles and on his 50th birthday, June 30, he reached his goal by making it to the U.S. Canadian border town of Blaine, WA. Along the way, he did live social media reports of his progress and fans following along on his journey were able to meet him in person and cheer him on. He also made plenty of stops along the way to do a bit of sightseeing with his wife and eight-year old daughter who were along on the trip in a car.

It has been long established that an employee of the government is cons tu onally prohibited from denying access to an individual wearing motorcycle club colors, or otherwise discrimina ng against them in any way. The ac ons of the Canyon County DMV are a blatant viola on of the 1st and 14th Amendments and expose public officials to liability under 42 USC Sec on 1983. The ac ons of the Canyon County DMV, although not in direct viola on, are 100% inconsistent with the new law prohibi ng motorcycle profiling that went into effect July 1st, 2020.
