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.

 (9-7-17)     2107 has seen a major improvement in Ohio in the reduction of Motorcycle Crashes and Fatalities, so when you are out and about and you come upon some breath taking scenery just find a safe place to get off the road so you can enjoy the landscape from a safe vantage point. Remember; ďLook Twice Save A LifeĒ that Life You Save might be your own...................( Read more....)

  (9-7-17)     Which bring us to the subject of learning. I know Education and Safety is part of our reason for being. How to operate a motorcycle safely, I get it understand completely. Remind the public to Look Twice Save A Life, I get that too. Teach young adults learning to drive to watch out motorcycles, yep Iím still understanding.
But, do we need to teach motorcyclist how to be bikers? ......................( Read more....)

  (9-7-17)     I am going to revisit a topic that has been discussed previously, but still has some confusion surrounding it: malfunctioning traffic signals. As stated in the past HB 154 was passed in the last legislative session, however, due to faulty language, this legislation was amended by HB9 in this legislative session. HB9 gave BICYCLES ONLY the right to treat a red light that did not recognize the bicycle as a stop sign, and to proceed through it after a reasonable time period. Repeat, BICYCLES ONLY!! I have restarted the process of attempting to introduce legislation giving motorcycles the same right at a signal that does not recognize the motorcycle................. ( Read more )

  (9-7-17)     I am hoping that these stats stay this way for the rest of the year. Overall the weather has been as nice as one could ask with rains coming during the week for the most part and very nice weekends. The last five years we have had our stats going up every year. Now we have a decline in our stats and I hope that stays true. In 2016 we had 2,416 crashes with 105 fatalities and in 2017 we have had 1,872 crashes with 65 fatalities. That is looking good. We need to keep them down.................... ( Read more )

Tired of sitting on your bike at Red Lights
that won't turn GREEN ????
    To enlist the help of Ohioís motorcyclists, ODOT set up a special phone number & E-mail for motorcyclists for reporting problem intersections.
