The first annual Bikes on the Border is now a week behind us and judgeing by the evaluations it was a huge success.  I want to thank everyone who attended and helped make it as enjoyable and informative as it was.  I want to send a special thanks to Jeff Hennie with the Motorcycle Riders Foundation who took his time to come down and give us a presentation concerning federal issues affecting motorcyclists.  I also want to thank ABATE of South Carolina for providing a fantastic hospitality suite.

Tom McGrath's Motorcycle Law GroupFor those who were unable to attend, Bikes on the Border was a social and informational gathering of motorcyclists from Virginia and the Carolinas.  In addition to Jeff's presentation we had sessions focusing on the CDC's recent motorcycle safety study, accident scene preservation, and knowing your rights during a traffic stop.  From the feedback that we have received everyone seemed to find the sessions informative and enjoyable.

We have already started planning for next year's Bikes on the Border.  Our venue will most likely change but it will still be along the border of North and South Carolina so we can keep our name.  Some of you on this list should expect to be contacted about being session presenters.  We have a wealth of knowledge among us and it needs to be shared.

Some of you expressed an interest in receiving copies of the PowerPoint presentations.  If you wish an electronic copy of any of the PowerPoint presentations please send me a request identifying which presentations you want.  I will get them to you ASAP.

Thanks again to all who attended.  I look forward to seeing you next year.
