ABATE OF MICHIGAN would like to Thank You in advance for your kind consideration 

             I can’t believe that September is already here. There have been so many distractions in our lives and things are changing so fast that you just can’t keep up with everything going on! ABATE tried it’s darndest to make changes in the Insurance Reform package that would help bikers all across the great State of Michigan but the Legislators who help write the legislation with the help of the Insurance Lobbyists did not ask for public input and neglected the will of Michiganders to protect us in case of an accident! Do not forget them in November!

            My good friend and RC George Bennett and I recently went to a funeral for the Minister for the CMA, Edwin Russell. He was a truly good man who was respected among his peers and would spread the Word of God every chance he got. The times I was around him he would never talk bad or bad mouth anyone. I wish there were more like him instead of all the anger, mistrust, and violence in this world today. May God bless you Edwin and may your work continue to make this world a better place to live!

            I’m going to miss the Thunder Road magazine during the months when ice and snow and cold weather take over, but like Jody stated, “If anyone needs anything, we still need to help one another through these tough times.” Hey Jody, how about some free airline tickets to the Bahamas in December?

            I’m not exactly sure who is in the race for the 5th Congressional District but a Candidate by the name of Earl Lackie has my attention and I hope him all the best of luck in November!

            Senator Gary Peters is having his Motorcycle Tour again this year at the end of August and I was invited along with George Bennett. Only a small number of people were invited, and we will be representing ABATE. Senator Peters strongly supports motorcycle rights. Let’s support him! He is an ABATE Member!

            Just some last minute issues for those of you who are concerned about motorcycle insurance, motorcycle only checkpoints, rider education and awareness and keeping the helmet choice option, on September 29th, ride to Lansing by noon and let your Legislators know you do matter and attend the ABATE of Michigan 2020 Freedom Rally!

            There will be a Meeting of the Minds in Indianapolis September 24 – 27th at the Waterfront Hotel and Conference Center. Please call Jinx at 517-812-7602. Jinx is the MRF Representative for Michigan and he can help guide you through all the details or you can check out The Michigan Rider and get all the info you need to sign-up or get registered.

            May God bless our Great Nation through these disasters like the Covid-19 epidemic and all the turmoil from the Politicians who can’t agree on anything without bickering and name calling and let’s hope that the American People are taken care of whoever wins in November.


May the road rise to meet you and the wind always be at your back,
