Share the Road Report
By Bill Kingsley 

"One thing is for sure, all bikers will tell you, riding is fun and for some of us it is a way of life."- Steve Williams

First off ... A HUGE thanks to Paul Vita (1A) and Richie Thompson (1F) for organizing the annual Clubhouse Run back in May! A special thanks to all the Clubs that opened their clubhouses up to us for that day and especially their gracious hospitality! I apologize for not including this in last month's STR article. Each year this unique run throughout SE Wisconsin benefits our Share The Road program. This year over $800 was raised. Be sure to watch for information for next year's Run -- you certainly do not want to miss out.

STR Forms / Video / PowerPoint. The most current forms and PowerPoint are now cloud based. Contact me to gain access these documents. The STR video is available on DVD and on YouTube. This PowerPoint is available on YouTube. You can easily find these two training presentations on YouTube by typing in "ABATE of Wisconsin" in the search window. These videos should be at the top of the results list. The STR DVD is available through the Share The Road District Coordinators (DCs) or myself. Contact us if you need a copy.

STR Presentation Hardware. At the recent training program, I distributed all of the laptops I had in inventory. We are always looking for additional equipment ... We still need laptops and presentation projectors for our Instructors. If you have a laptop or presentation projector that you no longer use the STR Program will put your old device to good use. I would certainly appreciate it - as would any of our STRI in need. Contact one of our STRI, DC or me to donate your equipment.

STRI / District Coordinators. District Coordinator Positions open in Districts 1, 2, 5 and 8. If you are interested please contact me.

STRI Gear. There are t-shirts, denim & twill shirts, Speedos, facekinis, etc. all with the exclusive STRI logo. The gear is available in men's and women's styles and sizes. Please contact Stephanie or Dawn (Products Directors) or me for the flyer and to place an order

As always, thanks to all our STR Instructors for your ongoing efforts to teach our STR Program. I appreciate your time, commitment, and the positive impact you have in making our roadways safer!

One last thing ... Riding season is here. Be Smart and Be Safe!

See you at the next Big One ...
