      Sunday ban on motorcycle sales lifted

      Missouri consumers will soon be able to buy motorcycles on Sundays.

      Missouri consumers will soon be able to buy motorcycles on Sundays.

      Gov. Jay Nixon signed legislation Monday that will lift a ban on Sunday sales of motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, personal watercraft and other items typically sold by power-sports dealers.

      Like most Missouri legislation, the measure is scheduled to take effect Aug. 28.

      The legislation was championed by motorcycle riders and at least one Harley-Davidson dealer from the Kansas City area, who told lawmakers that he was losing Sunday business to a competitor in Kansas.

      The Missouri legislation does not repeal the state's ban on Sunday sales of cars and trucks.
