  Lewis County ABATE 

   

   We attended Black Thursday, Jan 16th.  We visited with Rep. Debolt and Sen. Braun came down to the Columbia room to talk to us.  They are two of our legislatures from the 20th District.  Our Parking bill that would allow motorcycles to back their rear tire up to the curb in a parallel parking spot should pass this session. It is currently illegal for motorcycles to park that way. There have been at least two cities in the state that have issued parking citations to motorcyclists for parking like that. The other two bills, the Helmet Choice bill, and Lane Sharing bill will probably not pass this short session. We will keep trying.  It seems like there are plenty of other bills that the legislature want to pass that would infringe on our rights or increase our taxes. If you support motorcyclists' rights and ABATE or just are interested in what is going on in our legislature. There is contact information for your legislatures on our News page. 

    Winter is still here.   Be sure to be prepared for foul weather when you head out for a ride.  Be aware of your surroundings when you are out riding. None of us are too experienced to learn something new. There are a lot of good videos available concerning rider safety and the different type of issues that riders deal with.  

Distracted driving is not only illegal.

It can kill!

Please be alert and aware of your surroundings.
