Letter From The President

 

The last summer meeting has come and gone and now we look to the fall with the changing of the seasons and the migration of snowbirds coming to Florida. We will need to be even more aware of our surroundings when we ride. We are being hammered in the press about Florida having more accidents and deaths on motorcycles then any other state in the country. They never talk about the drivers only about us the riders. With next year being an election year we will be an easy target for our enemies to press for sanctions against motorcyclists.

We will make our wishes know in the Capitol at committee meeting this year and session in January. We have our vulnerable road bill and our safety money in this session. Then its election time for all the house, part of the senate and a new Governor. It's time for changes in leadership in the Capitol for too long we have been treated like second class citizens and now we need to vote for people who support us.

I want to thank all the chapters for showing up at the past state meeting but we still have some miscommunication going back from the state meeting to chapter meetings. Make sure your notes are correct so the information gets out properly.

Enjoy the last days of summer and get out there and ride. "Ride Safe and Free"!!!



James "Doc" Reichenbach II
