Just got back from the Freedom Rally and was glad to see all the ABATE Brothers and Sisters that were there. The one thing that impressed me the most was seeing all the Officers and Board of Director members present. Their commitment to ABATE of MI is just outstanding. Vince, you always do your part just like a leader should do. Butch, Herb, Tim, Jim, Eric, Mimi and especially Gerry Spomer, who rode all the way from the U.P. - you guys / gal show what it takes to lead fellow bikers and really mean it - Thank You! Brothers and Sisters donít think for one minute Iím blowin' smoke up their tail pipes. I have been in leadership position most of my adult life and I appreciate what they do.

Lately there have been too many accidents and deaths to fellow bikers and it is very upsetting to me since itís my responsibility to get the word out to ďLOOK TWICE AND SAVE A LIFE.Ē I am sorry if I canít get the help of the media. I tried e-mails and phone calls but they donít seem to think that awareness is an important issue. They would rather talk about the helmet repeal law and we are all dying because we arenít wearing a helmet.

In America we are constantly being attacked by the Federal Government who want to tell us how to do everything from which way to walk to how you should enjoy your freedom. Bikers are always asked to do something for an organization; fire hall, family who fell on hard times, American Legion Riders protecting soldiers who came home in a coffin to protecting our freedoms, to help a community with a fundraiser. Yet we canít get our Legislators to create a fund to help get out the AWARENESS PROGRAM so more of us can ride without fear. ABATE members are the most generous people Iíve ever met. We may not have a lot to give but we give something from the heart which is priceless!

When Iím teaching classes I hear these 14 and 15 year olds ask about ABATE and say to me how much their family members have heard about ABATE and I really enjoy that! I heard from the club called Iron Coffins and said how much they appreciated what awareness means to them.

Lil John from the COC thank you for all you do. We are all on the same page and when little issues regarding bikers get erased then sooner or later there will be no pages to turn.

Eric, hope all is well for your medical issue and look forward to seeing you soon.

I will work as hard as I can to promote awareness and like I said at the Freedom Rally, please do all you can by talking to anyone who will listen, ďLOOK TWICE AND SAVE A LIFE MOTORCYCLES ARE EVERYWHERE!Ē

State Awareness Director,

Hot Rod

 


THE KEY TO PREVENTION IS EDUCATION

ABATE of Michigan, Inc. is committed to making the general public aware of motorcycles on the roads in Michigan.  One of the ways to achieve a lower accident/fatality rate is to  educate the new driver.  Driver Education instructors are inviting ABATE Awareness Instructors into their classrooms to teach their students important factors on how to prevent accidents involving motorcycles. By making the general public aware of motorcycles on the road, accidents and fatalities will be reduced.

STUDENTS ARE  ENCOURAGED TO TAKE A MOTORCYCLE SAFETY CLASS BEFORE RIDING A MOTORCYCLE.

 LOOK TWICE -  SAVE A LIFE Ė Motorcycles are Everywhere
