(5-6-16) A big thank you goes out to all that participated in the Awareness Rally (or come on down and join us, depending when you read this.) Also thanks need to be given to all the proclamations that were written in our behalf. If you heard one mentioned from someone local to you, please take the time and drop that person a thank you. Most whom write the proclamation are not bikers but want to help us raise awareness and save a few lives. There have already been too many trips to the hospital and some to the funeral home this year. Some I have been to have been in cars also when hit by an inattentive driver. And if they can’t see another car they sure aren’t looking for us......................( Read more....)

(4-11-16) It is difficult for me to justify myself as Government Relations Director when I feel I'm not providing direction in having legislative accomplishments. I do not believe in creating busy work on the job, at home, or in this organization. I do believe there are others that would appreciate the challenge of tackling these issues.
With all that in mind, effective immediately I am resigning my position of Government Relations Director. I have considered it an honor and privilege to represent ABATE of Ohio and am very thankful for the experience. I wish you all well and hope you are successful in your future endeavors.

(5-6-16) In 2015 on this date we had 147 crashes and 4 fatalities and now in 2016 we have had 166 crashes and 6 fatalities. We have had a very mild winter and it’s looking like spring is going to be the same. We need to keep up the hard work telling all our brothers and sisters to ride safe. Now is the time to get that Look Twice Save a Life sign out & get it back in the front yard. If you don’t have one, call the state office 800-25 BIKER and have one shipped to you...............
