 (10-4-14)   The State Legislature is back in session but being an Election Year not much will happen in the final months of the current 2 year session. We have more tools available with the Minnesota Department of Public Safety releasing their Road Guard Curriculum, so we can hit the ground running in 2015 with a re-energized effort to make Road Guard training happen in Ohio during the next Legislative Session at the State Capitol Building. We have many friends in our State Legislature, so reach out and touch base with them and volunteer in their campaign .........( Read more....)

  (10-4-14)   Here it is October already. The month of Halloween, ghosts, goblins and all kinds of scary things. Got me thinking about what Iím going to dress up as this year. Made me ask myself a few questions. Did I want to go as something frightening? What do people find scary? What does the government find scary? Yeah Iím going to as something that frightens our government.
Maybe Iíll go as an educated voter. This is an election year and that might scare them. Someone that doesnít believe in a straight party line vote.......... ( Read more....)

From the Legislative Page
  (10-4-14)   The Motorcycle Riders Foundation is reporting that they are financially in dire straits. The MRF is a motorcycle rights lobbyist in Washington DC. When ABATE ceased being a national organization, the MRF was formed in order for all states motorcycle rights organizations to have a voice in Washington DC. They have represented us on countless issues over the years. We need the MRF in order to maintain the freedoms we currently enjoy.
    If you are not currently a MRF member, or have allowed your membership to lapse, please see MRF application in the Outspokin or go to their website at mrf.org. Get the word out in your monthly meetings that this is a serious situation and the MRF needs additional membership in order to survive. ...........( Read more )

(9-14-14)   When traveling, you need to prepare for the unexpected.
  The first thing you need is a good idea of where you are going, what roads you will be on to get there and how much time you will be in the saddle between rests. Be realistic about how much you, and others in your party, can do in one day. Itís not necessary to log the most miles, only to have a good time. If you use your phone for navigation, also make sure you have a paper map with you. There are places where your phone wonít work. Your passenger should be paying attention to the route and help look for road signs, dangers such as dogs or merging cars, and watching the rear mirrors to make sure the bikes behind are all following. Folks, if you see someone drop off from your group, STOP with them as soon as safe to do so........... ( Read more )

Tired of sitting on your bike at Red Lights
that won't turn GREEN ????
    To enlist the help of Ohioís 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.
