Good Lord! It’s snowing so hard outside I wish I had a snowmobile to get around on. It would be the perfect time to go from 2 wheels to one wide track with skis, dressed for 10 degree weather and a couple of destinations for a good ole time!
Now down to business. We Michiganders have to worry about new bills being introduced in Lansing – HB 5517 and HB 5523 which could be catastrophic to us. These would repeal the no-fault benefits that all of us have. I’m no lawyer but it sure does seem to me that something’s up and it ain’t good for bikers. One minute –I’ll be right back. I have to go see my friend who just showed up with his snowmobile – Dr. Mark Joseph. He wants to hang out for a minute…be right back! I’m back, man them new sleds are fast.
The seminar is over and Awareness did very good with getting supplies to all the Awareness Coordinators in each Region. Signs are a very hot item. A lot of Regions got the CD from CBS Radio and are getting with their local radio stations for the general public to hear. Let’s hope that it will help save lives in one way or another by just letting the public hear about motorcycle awareness. I sure appreciate all that these volunteers do. Their hard work teaching and going to these schools to teach students motorcycle awareness is appreciated.
The pizza and pop in Lansing is coming up February 28th and if you would like to meet your State Rep. this is a great opportunity to see ‘em!
There is a lot of renewed excitement in Region 5. They are putting together school assembly exposure programs for motorcycle awareness and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
One last thing, I was going to Region 6 meeting this Sunday but the weather is just too unpredictable. I wanted to see Lil Ice Man who is working very hard with legislation and now awareness and Bea and Gerry are helping him by working together. They are a good example of what hard work and cooperation can do.
I was given a hand made wood-carved plaque from Region 20 at the Seminar and it says “Save a Biker – Open your eyes and get off your Damn Phone”. The plaque will be auctioned off for awareness so stay tuned! Thank you for the great donation.
May the road rise to meet you and the wind always be at your back!
