Chapter Report

Hello Everyone,

 

Hope everyone's year is going good so far. We have had some ice and snow and then what feels like some spring weather. Giving us a taste of what's to come. Eventually anyway. Be careful if you are out riding. There is still quite a bit of sand on the roads.

 

We participated in Black Friday in Janurary. We were able to chat with our local legislators. Our district legislators are supportive of motorcyclists' rights. We appreciate having them on our side. Our legislative session is still underway, and it’s always a good idea to keep an eye on bills that affect riders, regardless of who presented or supports them. The bills that carried over from 2023 are:

  • SB 5401 (Randall)/HB1063 (Corry): Modifying the operation of motorcycles on roadways laned for traffic (Lane Sharing)

  • HB 1487 (Orcutt) Improving motorcycle safety by authorizing the use of the right shoulder of limited access roadways (Right Shoulder usage by motorcycles)

     

We did litter pick-up. We take care of Hwy 507 from the county line to the old Eagles building in Centralia. We collected thirty-one bags of trash. It is disappointing how much trash people throw out. It is not that difficult to have a trash bag in your vehicle.

 

Our Quadrathlon will be March 16th. It is always a blast to witness our athletic prowess in events like bowling, darts, pool, and putt-putt golf.

 

Be safe out there. Look out for the guy that is not looking out for you. Hope to see you at one of our meetings, rides, and events. (Kickback Campout the 3rd weekend in August)

 

Keep the rubber on the road!

Paul
