Climb Aboard the M.E.A.T. Wagon!
Hey all ... it is beginning to get closer to
riding season and this means we need to continue
to spread the word to motorists that we are among
them on the roads! That also means the M.E.A.T
(Motorcycle Education & Awareness
Trailer) is pounding the pavement throughout
Wisconsin and surrounding states. Many know me and
how passion I am to educate the motoring public on
ABATE of Wisconsin's mission of maintaining
our freedoms of the highway along with educating
and making other motorist aware that they
"Share the Road" with us bikers. My
enthusiasm has been elevated this year due to the
fact I lost a very close friend of mine, Mark who
was hit head on and killed by a motorist in a
hurry ... passing in a no passing zone last
August. That young lady's decision and her
unwillingness to be patient to pass in a safe
passing zone took the life of a business owner, a
boss, an up standing citizen of East Troy, a
father, a brother and very giving friend who will
always be missed and never forgotten.
With that said and fellow ABATE of WI members that
know me, I like to "think outside of the
box". Not only do I want you to contact me
on events you feel the M.E.A.T. would stand out
and create some talk, I want ALL ABATE of WI
members to consider supporting the events that the
M.E.A.T is attending. Maybe get your region to do
a group ride to support the event. Some are near,
some are far BUT the more members at an event the
more our message of "LOOK TWICE and SAVE A
LIFE" will be absorbed! Many know how I like
to "party" as well as
"preach" SO I PROMISE THAT ANY and ALL
the events the M.E.A.T. will be attending will be
a BLAST! Let us also show the motoring public that
we "LOOK OUT FOR OUR OWN" and all want
to grow OLD TOGETHER!
Below is the start of the list of the events the
M.E.A.T will be attending in 2017. I will continue
to update the schedule in each month's
newsletter. Feel free to contact me at 414-640-6125 if you
have an event you would like the M.E.A.T to be at
OR for any other questions you may have.
Party hard BUT always Ride Safe!
