Chapter Director

Fun time was had by all in Ogallala. The food was great, ride was great, entertainment was great, but I was 
sick with bronchitis, so that wasn't so great. Several attendees won door and cash prizes. I'm signed up for
the mystery ride and Iowa State Rally in Iowa. I took a road trip Sunday with another motorcyclist to
Burwell/Ord to see the storm damage, stopped in Elyria for lunch, and Albion for ice cream. Chapter NE-NE
is having a picnic Wednesday night in Randolph starting at 7:00 - we are asked to bring a salad. Next meeting 
will be in St. Paul at a winery, hosted by Lisses and Koeppens. This sounds like fun. We have been extremely
busy at the bowl since Newman Grove lost two restaurant businesses in town. One NE/SD Rally just got 
over and the plans are in the works for the next one that will be held in Sioux Falls SD, our own chapter C
artist ( Dick Stamm) did the art work for the Rally flyer check it out here, Dick I didn't know you were so talented!
 
  2015 NE/SD District Rally
That's all for now - see everyone at the July meeting. Safe, fun, riding till next time.

Safety          
Weather Conditions
Strong winds means reduced riding control. If you are riding and wind gusts start
pushing your bike, keep a firm grip on the handlebars, lean your bike into the
 wind by counter steering (press left to go left, press right to go right), keep an
upright posture, and keep plenty of distance between you and other vehicles.
Rainstorms mean slick road conditions because of oil buildup and slick
lane markers. Whenrain first begins, the road becomes the slickest from the oil and
other debris mixing with the rain. This is when hydroplaning can occur. After a rain,
the center of a lane is where the oil tends to build up so gently change lane position
to avoid the center. Be aware of slickness when stopping and wear oil resistant riding
boots to help alleviate slippage.
 
                     Stay safe everybody
