Heat, rain, hail, wind, and more, this month of to June.  July fun times are coming - July 26th in Valentine for the State Rally.  Theresa and I are leaving 
Newman Grove at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.  I'm riding the Goldwing and Theresa is bringing the SUV.  From there plans are to go to North Dakota
to pick up her mother and bring her back to stay with us 10 days to 2 weeks. Theresa goes to see the foot doctor this Tuesday to see if the boot can come
off after wearing it for 6 weeks. Larry Houdek and I took a ride to Chapter O's 10th birthday party last weekend in Syracuse with 30 members attending 
- good time and good ride.  Chapter C needs a basket for the rally and I do have one. Each member needs to please bring $10 or a $10 gift card to the July 
15th meeting - I will put the basket together and get it to Valentine.  This Thursday's supper ride is to Mel's Café in Fremont. Thanks to Peters' for hosting the 
June meeting and to Lisses'/Koeppens' for hosting July meeting. Until next time, here's  finally to some good weather for fun, safe riding!!

        Safety    

A Car Changes Lane Into You

You’re riding in traffic when a car in another lane suddenly veers into the space you’re occupying. Remember,
our  motorcycles can easily fit into blind spots and drivers looking for cars aren’t psychologically 
programmed to see motorcycles.How To Avoid It: Be aware of where blind spots lie and spend as little time in them
as possible. If you can see a driver's eyes in their mirrors, then they have the ability to see you, too 
(But remember that still doesn't always mean they're looking – Ed.).
Beware of situations where lane changes become more possible. Is highway traffic slowing, with one lane moving faster
than others? People are going to want to be in that lane. Don’t be where they want to be.
Look for signs of a car changing lanes: turn signals, wheels turning, the car wandering around its own lane while the driver 
checks his/her mirrors and, of course, the driver’s head moving. Be aware of all that, in all the cars around you, 
at all times, and you’ll be good.

 
Live every day like its your last, one day you will get it right!

June Mystery Person

New for 2018, now that everyone is in the habit of Hugging and Shaking hands
we are going to have a designated Hugger & Shaker at every Get-Together,
Our July Hugger & Shaker will be Larry Houdek, In the past the Mystery
Person was the 5th Hug or Shake, now it is up to the Hugger or Shaker to decide
what he or she wants for a Mystery Person Honor, it could still be a predetermined number
 like in the past or something new like the tallest or shortest hugger or shaker, or who
smelled the best, who has the newest or oldest ride, who has the best hug or handshake,
who traveled the farthest to the get-together, these are just ideas the monthly hugger &
 shaker can do whatever they want. Each month we will have a new hugger & shaker
 you will have to read the newsletter to find out who they are.
The new GWRRA MOTTO is participate, participate, participate....
