I am pleased to report that my tire claim was approved and the check for the new tire came in a few days. I had the MOA Platinum membership which will pay for two tires per year due the unrepairable damage. Just read the fine print and follow it. I am now ahead $ wise for several yrs on dues. $250.00 rear tire paid for with MOA insurance. Happy happy
You can get the idea. The GSA will take you anywhere. Tom Asher has a rider school called TARRA and gives lessons. If I can get ten people signed up he will do one here at our place. I think it is 150 bucks for his course and it can be beginner or advanced whatever you need. We are now at 20 riders. The date is October 27-28-29.
Advanced training is on the 27th, 29 is an over flow or rain date. The training will take place at Moto Supreme in Brown County. The cost is $150.00 day payable to Tom in advance. More details coming.
The fall Paynetown camp out is September 15, 16, and 17. The website is ready, Peggy has scheduled good weather. All that is left is, if you are coming, to go to the web site and over to the right under rides, mileage, and camp out you will find the “2017 Fall Paynetown camp out”. Log in and enter the number of people and the number of tents.
If there are any questions feel free to ask them.
