 (1-1-16)     The New Year is here and we are loaded for Bear and ready to hit the ground running. 2016 shows much promise, we need to take full advantage of all opportunities that present themselves in our State Legislature and bring the wins home. With your help this is exactly what we will do. Take some time and stop by your General Assembly Members Local Offices and visit with them or their Office Staff and get on a first name basis with them, talk about the Issues we are focused on and put a copy of Woody’s Report or better yet an Outspokin’ Magazine or something from one of our many resources, that spell out our concern for the Issue at hand, this is how it is done, start at home base.,..............( Read more....)

  (1-1-16)     We here in the great state of Ohio are half way thru the legislative cycle. We have this year to get any bills passed before having to start over again. In 2015 motorcycle fatalities were up. What do we have to do that this doesn’t become a trend? Over 40% of the accidents and fatalities were unendorsed riders. What do we need to do to get these people the training and eventual endorsement that they obviously need, or are we going to give the safety-crats the “look at the numbers, they’re too dumb to take care of themselves” argument. What are we going to do with these 3 wheeled enclosed side-by vehicles that are being title and licensed as motorcycles? Is there anything else we need to add to our legislative agenda? ...................( Read more....)

  (1-1-16)   The MRF has reported that Obama's administration and the EPA have raised the total number of gallons of ethanol that is to be mixed with the nation's fuel supply to 18.11 billion gallons. This is a significant increase from the 17.4 billion gallons that was proposed last May. It is however a significant decrease from the 22.5 billion gallons that was laid out by Congress in 2007.
    Currently the maximum percentage of ethanol that can be sold retail is 10%. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation has been directed by Sustaining State Motorcycle Riders Organizations, including ABATE of Ohio, Inc., to not support the use of fuels more than 10% ethanol without further testing on the effects on motorcycles....................( Read more )

  (1-1-16)     You will be reading this the first of 2016 and the annual stats are not good. We’ve had a rough year so far; 2015 has 3596 crashes and 150 fatalities compared to 2014 with 3615 crashes and 138 fatalities. It will be March before I will be able to sum up 2015 showing age groups, single vehicle accidents and impaired causes. The timing depends on how fast the reports get finalized. As I sit here writing this the weather men are telling me that December is going to get warm again, so we’re probably not done. Yes, I would love to get out and make one or two more runs but I’m probably done for the year. I hope everyone who is out there rides safe and we can hope for an early spring..............
