The cooler temps and fall colors this time of year make
for some awesome riding on the Thunder Roads of Alabama/Florida Panhandle.
Shorter days put a bit of damper on things but this is still our favorite
time of year to get out and ride. The back roads through the hills and
mountains of Alabama are lighting up with color and there's no better
way to enjoy it than on two wheels. Let's all take advantage of the riding
opportunities we have. Keep an eye out for the cagers. As declining temps
cause more riders to park their bikes till spring it makes those of us
still on the road easier to overlook. Cagers seem to forget about us when
they don't see many of us on the road.
Speaking of cagers not seeing bikers, Dixie ABATE is looking for volunteers
to give motorcycle awareness presentations to new drivers in Alabama high
schools. Here is an opportunity to share your love of motorcycles with
new drivers and help educate them on sharing the road and keeping an eye
out for us when they get behind the wheel. If this interests you give
Larry Lindsey at Dixie ABATE a call 251-599-3454 to get more info. We
think this is a great opportunity to influence young drivers and hope
it remains a successful part of the Driver's Education curriculum.
