I am a mother of three
great kids, and Nana to eleven
grand-kids. I am very much a family person, I have kids and grandkids
to ride and I want them to have the right to choose how and where they
need to work together to keep that right, if not for us think about
and or grandkids, do you want them to be able to feel what you feel
when you go
out and ride? Do you want to them to go out into the wild blue yonder
with cages that are not aware that motorcycles are out there? Think
I am so excited to have
the opportunity to work with this
new program. We all have a lot of great ideas and together we will take
program and get it out to the public. Right now our kids and grandkids
learning to drive. They are not told or taught to look out for
want to get this program into the schools, Drivers Ed Classes,
Driving Classes, any where people who drive can see and understand we
there. We were not taught to watch out for us, but over the years we
learned and some have lost their lives, not because they did not know,
because the John Q Public was never
taught to watch out for motorcycles, I am tired of losing my brothers
sisters, to uneducated drivers. So now we
have this program. It shows and explains a lot of different safety
mainly explains how and what drivers need to do in order to watch out
for us. So if you have a school, a class,
Meeting, anything you can think of where the people can sit and watch
for a few minutes, please contact us and we will bring this program and
some eyes as to what to look out for and how to be safer drivers and
Safe, Ride Free, Just go out and Ride ~

My name is Kaye "Stormy" Elliott. I'm 20yr member of Texoma ABATE (since 1992). I am also the current Newsletter Editor for Texoma and Texas ABATE in 2013 & North Texas AMSEP Rep. I have been fighting for motorcycle rights for 20yrs.
I have been a nurse for 15yrs and have taken care of a lot victims from motorcycle accidents. Failure to see us on the road has been apparent since I started riding at a young age. I was 9yrs when the neighbor got me a 50cc indian to get me on the road. I continued riding and have only seen the problem increase. Long before texting and driving they flat out just didn't see us coming or weren't looking.
Now I have 2 sons that are grown and ride. I have 10 grandkids and 3 of em have already started hollering dirtbike! So I decided to get on board with AMSEP. Its obvious the only way change can occur is if someone initiates it. Safety and education needs to start with our kids in grade school, long before motorcycles we ride bikes. One foot usually follows the other though don't it...
