Annual Member Contest

  All members of ABATE take notice,

    Iím not sure if everyone knows of this contest; it goes like this. For every NEW member that you sign up as a member of ABATE and put your name as the Taken By on the form or napkin (Iíll take a membership on anything as long as I can read it and the information is there). I track all taken by applications resulting in the Renew column seen below. Unfortunately on the State level that does not count in this contest. Only NEW members count. The person who brings the most new members receives a free single membership. This yearís winner and runner up are shown below. This contest runs from June through May.

  (6-29-17)     Started the month with the ABATE Awareness Rally. Well put on as usual and who doesnít enjoy that escorted ride down 71. Thank you to all who took the time to get motorcycle awareness month proclamations. This is the kind of grass roots advocacy that keep ABATE of Ohio relevant in the local politics. Years ago we had to keep an eye on what the local powers that be were doing. Now, many times they call us asking for a way to resolve a motorcycle related issue. Thanks to all that attended.......................( Read more....)

  (6-29-17)     Also, in last month's article I thanked those who attended the Awareness Rally. Attendance at this year's Rally was DISMAL and DISAPPOINTING!! The weather forecast called for rain that never materialized, so other than death or a family emergency, there was no acceptable excuse for not attending. If the founding fathers had that kind of attitude, we would all still be British subjects! Blimey!!............... ( Read more )

  (6-29-17)     For the most part everyone is riding safe here at Ohio Bike Week and this means a lot on keeping an event alive. The stats for us this year are settling down. In 2016 we had 1,137 crashes and 35 fatalities as of the first of June. Now in 2017 we have 911 crashes and 23 fatalities. This is looking good compared to the way we started the year. Crashes involving injuries are down over 200. This says that we still have the crashes but not every crash is sending someone to the hospital................... ( Read more )
