About us :

Your Local Chapter Editor's explanation:
Our organization was created to act as a legislative watchdog on the Federal,State, and Local levels. We intend to warn our members as well as the entire motorcycle riding community of any adverse legislation.
We aim to improve road conditions, thus making riding safer and preventing accidents. We also aim to act as a liason between Motorcyclists and Government authorities, Police Departments,Insurance Companies, or any Agency appearing biased to the motorcycling community.
We promote Motorcycle training and Education and hope to improve the overall image of the entire motorcycling community.

We are definitely bigger than last yr and possibly bigger than Fargo now officially!

If anyone can talk Lamont properties into adding onto the D.E.C. we could surely use another 10,000 sq feet

Also if we could get the Aberdeen Am. news out in the afternoon I'm sure there's another interesting article for them since last yr was mostly Antiques & this yr we have much more variety & newer Custom builds.

See you all there!

New Business: Discussed Wheel Inn Flyers & advertising. Suggestions were to make “Business Card” Flyers ourselves and sell “Blanks” around the edge of the Flyers to help curb operating costs for the Wheel Inn. (Shane & Cindy to chk on cost of large printer & glossy paper & compare prices). Changing print size, font & location of “ One of the oldest ABATE Events in the Nation” on current Wheel Inn 2014 Flyer was discussed and approved.

Prez notes: I want to remind everyone to please book your rooms early for the Bike Show and enter your Bikes asap so we can get an idea how much room we have to play with, and this makes setup so much easier on Friday before the Show. Also, contact Larry at 605-290-0763 and put your name on the schedule for gate duty as soon as you read this and maybe you’ll get the time slot you want… we need live warm bodies to make any Event work.
