2017 Chapter Z Directors Paul & Cheryl Engelman

Wow isn't this weather amazing!!!!! Hopefully it will stay that way so we can get plenty of rides in!!! Here are the events we have scheduled so far this month. We will start the month off on September 2nd by taking a ride to Echo Bluff State Park, we have heard from several of our members plus members from other chapters that this is a great park! Chapter Missouri "O" did a weekend trip here a few months ago; it may be an idea for Chapter Z next year. On Sunday September 10th we will take a ride to Onondaga Cave State Park for another Sandwich Ride. On September 16th we will ride to Warm Springs Ranch in Boonville, the tickets for this ride had to be purchased in advance, there are no other tickets available. Our dinner ride will be to Ginny's on September 19th. On Friday September 22nd several of us will leave to go to the Southern Illinois Ride-In in DuQuoin, Illinois, we will return sometime in the evening on the 23rd. On September 24th the Bike and Badge Ride to benefit Backstoppers will depart from St Louis Honda, we will meet early to get into the beginning of the ride, then walk over to Golden Corral for breakfast. On Saturday September 30th, we will return to SkyView Drive-In, we will have more details later. The ride that was originally scheduled for September 30th was to Lambert's we will re-schedule that ride for a later date.

2017 Assistant Chapter Directors

Hello friends! We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the nice days for riding. We had some really nice rides this month and many members came out to ride and have fun. On Aug 5th we went down to Chapter I's Fun Run and 30 Z members attended. On the 15th we had our monthly dinner ride to Poppy's Restaurant and 26 members came and enjoyed a great meal and friendship. Aug. 19Th we had 14 members attend the district picnic. The next day the 20th we had 23 members attend and work the Ride For Kids Fundraiser. It was a beautiful day and a great ride. The kids really enjoyed the ride especially the girl who rode in Batman's slingshot!! They announced that over $36 thousand dollars had been raised! Aug. 26 was the KZ big wiener run and 15 members joined KZ and Carla at their camp site for a picnic. We hope everyone enjoyed the rides this month and we hope even more will ride next month. Ride safe and smart friends.

2017 Rider Educators Les & Sara Gibson Chapter Rider Education Article for September 2017 First, I assume most of us have heard or read about the new changes coming down from GWRRA. Missouri Chapter Z Directors have decided to keep business as usual as far as Rider Education goes through December 2017. As a Rider Educator, I hope this decision will not get members hurt, or place them in harm’s way. I believe team riding is a VERY safe way to move a group and it is still extremely important that our members are trained in team riding. In the armed services, groups of soldiers are moved in a similar manner. I know the education will still be available to members and my hope is Rider Education does not get LAX. One of the reasons that Sara and I wanted to join GWRRA was the Rider Education Program. I wanted to be a better rider than I was when we initially joined. I wanted to keep the love of my life safe. Sara and I will be here for the members, please do not hesitate to ask questions or request a Rider Education class. Chapter Z keeps a full calendar, but our Directors are always willing to make things work. In closing: Please keep learning, Please keep practicing, and most of all, Please be safe. Remember, the life or limb you save might not belong to you. Les and Sara Gibson Chapter Z Rider Educators [email protected] 314-313-1135

Our Motto... “Share the Road!” Our Mission... “To Facilitate A Reduction In Motorcycle Crashes With Other Motor Vehicles.”

Wow, I just wrote August newsletter article last week didn't I? Just seems like it. Summer has went faster than normal. Dosen't mean we should slack on our safety factors and awareness needs. This is a year round never ending process. You can always learn something about your motorcycle and make people aware even when weather does not permit riding. In my opinion unless the laws change things, it is much more unsafe now to ride or drive than it was 5 years ago. The cell phone is all our enemy. We alone can not stop it. Too many stupid people on the road who use cell phones while operating a vehicle, even the 18 wheelers. Only a priority after the damage is done. Also police could not begin to cover if it was enforced. Until things change stay back when you see a vehicle act irresponsibly and stay away from road rage as hard as it is to do sometimes. Too many crazy people out on the roads. Ride Smart and Ride Safe!
