Seventeen members rode on 13 bikes through beautiful
Chatham County to raise awareness that May is Motorcycle Awareness Month.
The route was created by Wayne and Debbie and they did an excellent
job. Even Mohan, who has ridden a lot in Chatham County commented that
he saw places he had never been before. Thanks go to Wayne and Debbie
for planning a great ride.
The route took us past all three of our yellow
and black motorcycle awareness signs. These signs have cost Chatham
CBA over $550 to purchase and maintain. We encourage ALL motorcycle
clubs and organizations to consider purchasing these types of signs
and putting them up all over North Carolina. These signs remind car
drivers to watch out for us and these signs SAVE LIVES.
This ride was also meant to honor our MSAP
Instructors. These volunteers take time out from their personal schedules
to go into high school drivers education classes and teach the new drivers
to watch for motorcycles. This is another life-saving program. Although
his program was started by the CBA, we also encourage other motorcycle
groups to have their members become certified MSAP instructors and help
teach these 90 minute long classes to the new drivers. Please see our
MSAP webpage for more information.
We are VERY grateful for our Chatham
County CBA MSAP instructors and appreciate their dedication.
CBA's MSAP Instructors:
