Hi everyone, it was great to see so many of you at the annual banquet Saturday. More than 70 people attended!

It looks like spring and riding season are arriving a month or two early. Enjoy yourselves if you are able to get out for a ride in February. With the lack of snow and ice this winter, there is hopefully less salt and grit on the roads (and fewer potholes) waiting to trip us up.

Here is important news about our club and upcoming events.

Prez Sez October 2023

As I sit here in my room at the Little Bluff Inn during our Fall Color Ride, after a great breakfast and spending time at the Galesville Applefest with its famous ten-foot apple pie (which I must say was pretty good), I am thinking about how quickly this day transpired, and as well as this riding season...

Another month in the books. As I sit here watching the frozen water (I refuse to type the word) come down this morning I am again reminded just how quickly the time passes. I also begin to think about all the tasks that become more urgent as we move towards the time we have to put our machines away. I am beginning to understand why my predecessors may have struggled to get these thoughts out more frequently.

Well, here it is September. Where did summer go? I know that my summer was occupied with lots of family business, but I was able to get a few rides in this summer. I am way below my usual riding mileage though. To recap my summer, I started out by co-chairing this year’s Hiawatha Rally, which I thought went rather well. We had a lot of compliments from other clubs and questions as to how we run such a great rally. I do need to ask for a club member to volunteer to be co-chair for next year with Mike Murdaugh, with that person then being the primary co-chair in 2024...

So, this Prez Sez is coming out a bit late for me to not feel a little guilty calling it April. I must
confess that I truly did not understand the demands of the club presidency before assuming
leadership. To which I compounded those demands with the demands of co-chairing this year’s
Hiawatha rally. One of my trainers when I was a leader in Boy Scouts once said, "We look for
people that spell no, K.N.O.W.!" I guess they and you found me! I have been blessed with an
outstanding board and vice president along with a rally co-chair which has helped beyond words
to relieve some of the stress...

Saying all that I also have come to the conclusion that it's not to late to get something done until the event happens. Which brings me to the message of todays Prez Sez. "It's not to late." If you spell no with a "K" we need you! want to get more involved with the club, have some spare time? volunteer for one of the many events we have coming up. We need people to volunteer for the open house at

Well, I caught it, no not the dreaded covid. The missing riding fever. It usually strikes about this time every winter. The signs are subtle but unmistakable endless hours watching motovloggers, living by watching others much more fortunate than myself continuing to ride in good weather climes. Commenting on bike related social media posts, posting pictures of your bike etc…

‘Tis the very merry month of May! Hooray!

OK, we are not back to normal, but some will say normal is overrated. A lot of our members have been vaccinated, by virtue of their professions, advanced age, perseverance, or good luck. Things are opening up, little by little.

Yes, I am still at home, though buoyed by the prospects of vaccines and pandemic stats trending downwards.

Well, and good. We have passed through February’s cold weather and can be hopeful for Spring, even though it was snowing today. If you are not itching to ride already, you will be, soon. Word has it that even snowbirds are beginning to be sighted migrating northwards.

You know it was a long winter when I don’t shave off my beard until April 29th. Riding Season started for me yesterday. Between the weather, being sick for over a week with a nasty cold and having lumber stacked up all over the place as I was
pre building a deer stand at home, I just didn’t get any bikes out until May 7...
