From The Directors:
May is in the past already. We hope all the mother's in our chapter had a happy Mother's Day.
We got through another Brat Fry Fund Raiser and we did well for the chapter and the charity. A very big THANK YOU to all who helped. We understand not everyone is able to help and that's ok. We went through a lot of brats, hamburgers and hot dogs. Thank you everyone.
We had our first Fortunate Soul's ride of the season. We heard the ride was good and the food stop was good also. Yes, I had to work so I did not make that ride. Not a Fortune Soul yet.
We had some of our chapter members go to Dust-Off and had a good time. Socializing, riding and fun.
We had our first two Social and Ice Cream rides of the season. We had a good turn out for both and the ice cream for both was good too. Sundaes, malts, cones and dishes....oh boy.
And then we had Memorial Day. We hope everyone had a good Memorial Day.
That's all for now and hope to see everyone at the next event.
Thanks and more to come next month.
Ride Smart & Be Safe!
Thank You, every one for the help and support.

Rider Education: May 2018
Last month (May) was Motorist Awareness month - with theemphasis being on motorcycles & vehicles, Sharing the Road safely together - to Look Out Twice (even 3 times) for each other. This is also the time for us to begin focusing on getting ourselves ready for the upcoming riding seasons (Spring/Summer/Fall). For some of us our riding skills may need to be sharpened. Our Wisconsin District Educator has set-up a schedule of ARC (2-wheel) and TRC (3-wheel) skills training courses for all of our Members this month on June 23rd and June 24. Contact: April Johnsted (District Staff) at 715-559-5758 to sign up.
There are a lot of bikes out on the roads now. Time to start thinking about some of the potentially dangerous times for riding. Dawn and Dusk are two of the most dangerous times: when we are first starting to get out on the road and when we are winding down from a long day of riding. The factors involved here are Attention and Concentration and Rest. Make sure you are well rested before you begin to get on your bike and take a lot of breaks during your day's ride.
Please be careful and Ride SAFELY.
