Brothers and Sisters,
Riders for most of us Spring is just around the corner and I would like to remind everyone on doing some maintenance on their motorcycle, or at least take it to a shop to be looked at so that some issues could be mitigated before the ride season really starts to go.

This summer I “plan” on knocking off a few of my “Bucket List Rides”.  I personally plan on doing the June 2nd Route 666 ride, Coronado Trail, in New Mexico and Arizona then going over to Texas just a bit north west of San Antonio to do the Three Twisted Sisters ride.  Of course, that is if a Senior Graduation goes as planned without issues with Family coming from the East Coast and the Midwest.

Riders I would also like to remind everyone on the Medical Wavier policy that is in the bylaws and that Scout also sent out. None of us is getting any younger and if medical issues do happen to come up you can ask for a medical wavier. Yes, you can wait to see if physical therapy helps before requesting but the option is still there.  There is also a limited office that an individual with a medical wavier can hold.  If you have questions just ask.

With this being a Non-National year, Regionals will be held this year. Check with your Regional Presidents to find out when yours will be happening.  Next Year we will be having our National 2019 Meeting again during “Purple Heart Week” in Branson, Missouri. Also as a reminder, NATIONAL DUES. As of right now there are a lot of people past due. Riders stay up to date on your dues and send your money in ASAP.

Ride Safe everyone,




Mena, Arkansas Ride
