Preparing for the Season - Alberta Motorcycle Safety Society Featured

ABSS LianeMessage from the President:

It sure seems like Mother Nature has no desire to let go of Old Man Winter but I assure you, they will break up, spring is here and we will be riding soon.  in the meantime, while we understand that everyone has the itch, if you are taking changes on those early days, please take it easy, watch for gravel and under those puddles could be a layer of ice waiting to take you out for the entire riding season.  We aren't saying don't, you can make that choice for yourself just please be smart about it.

We are looking forward to launching our 2018 motorcycle awareness campaign.  This year hope to launch from the Legislature building with a specific date to be announced soon.  More details will come as soon as they are finalized.

Most of you are likely aware of the changes to the helmet law in Alberta exempting anyone of Sikh faith from having to wear a DOT approved helmet.  While everyone at the AMSS is appreciative and respects freedom of religion, we fully support motorcycle safety more.  Seeing statistics from US states that do not have helmet laws coupled with our own helmet education display we are building, we simply cannot support this exemption decision.   Moving forward we will continue to educate on the importance of all gear.

In other more positive news, an exciting new private training program called Next Level is starting up in Edmonton.  Please see below for more information.  There are a couple events happening in April to kick off the event season.  Again, please see the events section below for more information.  

Finally, we are excited to be holding our annual AGM this month!  It is a great time for Society Members to come together to discuss AMSS and how to navigate our path.  We have more information on this in the Member's section below.

We are looking forward to getting this season going and hoping to reduce serious injury and fatality statistics in 2018.  Thank you all for your continued support!  Please remember to ride smart, ride safe and #ThinkBike!

Liane
