Motorcycle Awareness Tip:
Know your bike
Before You Ride
Read the owner’s manual, as it will give you many specifics that you will find helpful in understanding and maintaining your bike.
Check the tires – these are the most important parts of your bike. Check the surface of the tires for cuts and foreign objects. Check the tire pressure with a good gauge, avoiding ones you find at gas stations. Many times they’ve been used a lot and may not be accurate.
Check the controls – cables are strong and rarely break, but check for kinks or stiffness.
Check your lights, turn signals, horn, and mirrors.
Check the oil, fuel, and if your bike is liquid-cooled, the coolant levels.
If your motorcycle has a chain-drive to the rear wheel, make sure that the chain is properly tensioned and in good shape.
Make sure that the sidestand and centerstand fold up and stay up.
Check your brakes as you roll off. Make sure they work.
If you or your group have a ride or event that you would like to post on our events page please stop in and post some flyers or put in out our page and we will get to it.

Today's May Awareness Tip:
We cannot forget that just because we are smaller and much quicker than cars we should still respect other vehicles on the road.
Avoid cutting drivers off and apologize if you do so
Avoid tailgating and honking the horn
Avoid making inappropriate or offensive gestures
Steer clear of other aggressive drivers
Avoid eye contact
Seek help if you're being followed by driving to a safe/crowded location or by dialing 911
Adjust Your Attitude Aggressive Driver Police Stop
Leave yourself enough time rather than trying to make good time
Put yourself in the other driver's shoes
Take a deep breath and remember escalating a situation will only make things worse.
We want to know how the Awareness Rally went. If you have a story or photos please share them with us.

Here are 10 excellent tips to remember for cars and trucks. Please share this with your friends that don't ride.
May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, we all know how dangerous the roads can be with people not paying attention in their cars and trucks.
Here are a few reminders if you come up on an accident or are involved in one yourself:
Call 911 and state there has been a motorcycle accident, mention the number of people involved and ask for an ambulance.
SAFETY: Traffic is stopped or properly diverted, ensure that no gas or oil is leaking and could ignite, if the casualty is injured make sure they are protected.
MEDICAL: ALWAYS assume the casualty is injured DO NOT TRY AND REMOVE THE HELMET AND DO NOT MOVE THE NECK. Remember U-ABCC
Unconscious - Introduce yourself. Hearing is the last sense to go. Let them know who you are and that you’re there to help them.
Airway - Check to make sure their airway is unobstructed.
Breathing - Is the person breathing?
Circulation – Is there a pulse?
Cervical Spine Immobilization - stabilize the cervical spine in the same position you found it in. Do not let the victim accidentally move their head/neck/back.
If conscious, keep the victim talking by asking four crucial questions and writing down/tracking the responses:
1.Who are you? What is your name?
2. Where are you?
3. What day and time is it?
4. What happened?
ACCIDENT SCENE: Do not remove motorcycle parts/debris lying on the road. Take pictures of the accident scene from as many angles as possible. Take pictures of the victim, the vehicles involved and any skid marks or evidence on the road. These will not only help with any insurance claim, but it will also help law enforcement to reconstruct the accident to understand exactly how it happened.
