"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.

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.

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
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
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 ...
