Fighting for the rights of all motorcyclists since 1976

   It’s that time of year again. Falling leaves mean autumn, and autumn means winter can’t be far behind. Motorcyclists tend not to like winter, unless you are Vince Consiglio.

   Silla, in the October Rider, has made it ridiculously easy for us to contact our State Senators. She has listed your districts Senators phone number so you can easily contact them and let them know about your opinion on insurance reform. If you don’t know what to say or do, you can contact your RC for info. If they can’t help, you can call me and I will send you the info you will need.

   There will be two new people running for the board this year, Joy Gerow, who has been Region 12's Treasurer for a long time, and Merry Garrett Region 6 's RC.

Vince Piacenti, after many years on the Board, has to retire due to his job keeping him away from home a lot. He will continue to help the Board when we need his area of expertise.

   There are several proposed by-laws for this year that will be voted on by the membership. I will list the proposals in next month’s Michigan Rider as the Board still needs to vote on them.

   I would encourage your Region to donate to the Seminar if your Region is financially able. The donation counts toward your yearly rocker. Even a $50.00 donation helps.

It’s also time to pick your Region's Member of the year so look around, think about who works their ass-off for your Region, and who makes it work smoothly.

   I would like to congratulate Region 11 for signing up 52 new members in September! You guys are doing something right! Thank you!

   Awareness donations are from Training Wheels Inc. which this is their 8th year donating to Awareness, Region 12, Region 17, Dave Tice and Pinhead Tony.

   Thanks to everyone for doing what you do.

       Till next month.
