Jim "SNAFU" Elgin
 (8-9-14)   We had the lowest June Jam turn out (211) on record. What are we going to do about it? Preregister, doesn’t matter if you can make it or not, buy a ticket. And, Rededicate ourselves to supporting our own Region and County Events because these Events are going to have to pay the rent around here as to enable us to continue the Good Fight. I am asking every one of you to cross County and Region Lines to do your part to support the Cause, no matter what Region is hosting the Event, and you might just have a real good time in the process. We must be our own best friends. .........( Read more....)

  (8-9-14)   I was reading a message from Hardtail with the MRF. He stated that nationwide only 2 percent of bikers belong to a freedom fighting organization. This reminded me of how important a job we do here in ABATE. Only 1 out of 50 people are willing to stand up and defend the rights and freedoms of all motorcyclists. Many of the issues we fight or want to change may seem motorcycle related to most, but taking away any form of freedom might open them door on a bigger issue. Good thing most ABATE members I’ve run into are neither shy nor quiet......... ( Read more....)

From the Legislative Page
  (8-9-14)   Campaign season is here. Our state legislators are in their home districts. This is a great time of year to meet your legislator. Especially during an election year, legislators are at fairs, festivals, parades, and any other event drawing the general public. This is a good time to track them down and talk to them about your concerns. Quit complaining about the government and get out and do something about it. Our legislators aren’t mind readers. If you have something that you feel is being ignored or more attention needs to be paid to an issue, talk to your legislator. The officials I have dealt with in Ohio have an honest desire to serve their constituents. They may not agree with you, but they will listen to you and explain their position. ...........( Read more )

(8-9-14)  What a great summerwe are having! Yes,we have had some rain but not much on weekends and not to the point of stopping a great ride. I see more riders on the road this year than years past. With this being said, we need to keep up the fight to ride Smart. The stats for this year are rising:
•2013 – 1725 crashes and 54 fatalities.
•2014 - 1088 crashes and 47 fatalities.
Keep putting signs out, check on your friends and talk up riding smart.......... ( Read more )

Tired of sitting on your bike at Red Lights
that won't turn GREEN ????
    To enlist the help of Ohio’s motorcyclists, ODOT set up a special phone number & E-mail for motorcyclists for reporting problem intersections. When reports come in, ODOT will notifiy signal owners ( often a city or county ) about the situation and offer recommendations for improvement.
