April 11th and there is so much to do with all the events coming up. You just want to go to every one but that is just impossible! I’m trying to put together a schedule so that I can attend region events and I’m really looking forward to meeting and hanging out with our fellow ABATE brothers and sisters.

Everyone knows that May is Motorcycle Awareness Month. If you need proclamation information just give me a call and I will help you the best I can. I will be at the Milan City Council on April 25th and I have already been in contact with the City Council and will be presented with a proclamation.

On May 2nd ABATE will be riding with Secretary of State Ruth Johnson for the 2016 Motorcycle Safety News Conference. It will be leaving at 9:40-9:45am from ABC Harley-Davidson dealership at 4405 Highland Road on M-59 in Waterford, MI. 48328. (248) 674-3175. Please try to attend. The press conference at the Crest Center at OCC will start at 10:30am.

I was on my way to my brother’s house to help him with some tree cutting when I got a phone call from the RC from Region 20 (The General) and he just blew me away with the good news that their region raised $2000.00 dollars Saturday April 9th for the “Look Twice Save A Life” billboard on I-75 Southbound near Flushing Road. Mike (Kritter) Poage and the entire Region 20 members – You Guys / Gals are AWESOME!

I recently purchased 250 yard signs and I will be in Lansing April 23rd. If you need any, please get with a Board Director or call me to make arrangements to “get ya some”.

Awareness Instructors – drivers training classes are going full tilt right now. It would be an opportune time to ask for help in your Region. In the spring members just feel good about summer coming up and will volunteer. Even a little bit could go a long way to help get the word out “Look Twice Save A Life”! Please try to wear your wrist bands, t-shirts or anything ABATE as much as you can. Whether your’e walking through the grocery store, mall, or the local pub, everyone notices what you are displaying. For the most part it will strike up a conversation about ABATE. I can’t stress enough how proud I am of all the Awareness Coordinators who go out of their way to save lives. Never let your guard down. You must drive defensively and when you do at the end of the day of riding please be thankful that you are free to make a choice and go wherever you want!

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 – Motorcycles are Everywhere
