Good news is... properly put together, motoring enthusiasts actually can create quite a political impact and win a seat.
Bad news... when it comes down to it... is there really a recognizable, like-minded group of "motoring enthusiasts" all sharing the same political goals and means... does not appear so
In Australia, the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party candidate actually won a seat in the senate. Then the party descended into chaos, and imploded. Now basically AMEP has a sitting senator without the party that got him there.

I hope we do better here in BC, if that day ever comes, when we have an openly pro motoring rights candidate. But somehow, seeing how we can't even have a BCCOM post without instant bickering, I don't know if we'd be much better at merging politics and motorcycling.
