He is the current Vice-President of Heartland Chapter and is a Motorcycle Riders Foundation member. Bob's passion and drive of helping make the roads safer for the motorcycling community is fueled by the lose of his step-son to a motorcycle accident. Bob was not a motorcyclist when he first learned about and joined ABATE of Oklahoma. He soon bought a bike and took the MSF course to get his "M" endorsement before joining his brothers and sisters on the road. He can be found on many occasions volunteering his time assisting with a membership booth throughout the state to promote our cause.

The 2nd Annual Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) Member Appreciation Cookout is set for Oct 15 at Lake Altus (Quartz Mountain Park). It will coincide with the Save Second Base Poker Run (Southwest Chapter's Breast Cancer Awareness run). See the flyer on the "Events Flyer" page or the "Events Calendar" for more details on both events.
If you're not a MRF member, the cost is $30 per person or $50 a couple, but you get a free meal and MRF membership for both!
Last year the cookout was awesome with great food and fellowship. We even got some new members! Children are invited too!
The above sign was placed in Tulsa on South Memorial between 34th & 35th streets on the west side of the road. Rick
Cassady has been working to get this to happen, and with the help of David Patrick, the city of Tulsa came through on it.
Let's all urge our local cities/towns/villages to do the same in our areas! Thanks for sharing Rick and Mary!
Safety Tip of the Month
Always ensure your tire pressure is at the proper levels, your tread is good and watch for road grime (salt, sand and etc)
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF), incorporated in 1987, is a membership-based national motorcyclists’ rights organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The MRF monitors and when necessary, sways federal legislation and regulatory action that pertains to street riders. The MRF concerns itself with what is going on in the arena of motorcycling safety education, training, licensing, and public awareness. The MRF provides members and state motorcyclists’ rights organizations with direction and information to protect motorcyclists’ rights and motorcycling. The MRF sponsors annual regional and national educational seminars for motorcyclists’ rights activists and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, The MRF Reports.
“To Promote awareness and education in the motorcycle community to improve rider safety.
To educate non-riders globally in the interest of all riders’ safety.”
Let's attempt to get more members of ABATE of OK to join the MRF and get our voices heard, not just here at home, but in Washington D.C. as well!
