State of Michigan - Motorcycle Safety Program

We have been contacted by a representative of the State of Michigan's Motorcycle Safety Program about possibly participating in an event for May - Motorcycle Awareness Month. Last year they had a spotlight on the increase in Female riders, this year they are thinking about Sportbike Riders to go with the increase in our numbers

This is an opportunity for us to show that not all sportbike riders are squids.

More details to follow, a road trip up to Lansing to "represent" might be in order

Officers,

There are a couple emails that went to the [email protected] email address. I called them today and will contact me with more details.

That is awesome news. We can get some info from some trackday organizations as well, and promote getting your speed fix at the track. Just a thought. I would be very interested in representing the club in Lansing.

So obviously we want Jonathan to lead the ride!

Where is Jonathan?

Sounds like a good idea.
Did they give a date for this?
Some of us will be at VIR and then a few days later, others will be at Road Atlanta.

At the very least we should get a group going to the MSF advanced class this spring to help get the cobwebs out.
