I grew up in a small farming community south of Spokane, Washington riding my Honda 90; starting about the age of 10.  I rode mostly on gravel roads, fields, creek bottoms and scab-rock; with an occasional highway excursion.  I now ride a  2017 Indian Scout Sixty.  I got my first "real" job away from the farm at the age of 14 years and have worked as a bookkeeper since I was 18.  These days I am focusing on being a more informed citizen of this United States.  I  firmly believe that if we want our Government to make good choices for us as individuals we need to do something.  I joined ABATE in 2010 and have found my niche in making my voice known while working with our State and Federal Government.

Correna Barnard 

I am honored to be a part of a wonderful organization.  It is nice to be involved in all aspects of our rights as motorcyclist.  I have always been a passenger, but always had the desire to ride myself.  It took  until I was 52 to make that happen.  I enrolled in the Stars program to learn how to ride since I didn’t even know how to start one.  For my birthday I purchased a 250 Honda Rebel to get my feet wet.  I enjoy ridding and the freedom of the open road.  This year I will be graduating to a bigger bike.  I am a mother of three adult children and a grandma to three wonderful grandchildren who thinks its cool to have a grandma that rides motorcycles.

Hi all!!  My name is Belinda Carson  AKA  "Tigger", and I ride a trike made by my Husband, Ron.  I have been an ABATE member since 2007, since my husband introduced me to the organization.  I am an active member and believe in what ABATE stands for, and I love meeting new people.  You probablly have met me at one time or another on rides or volunteering for different  events.  I do believe that ALL of us should get more involved with our communities and with our government.  We all need to keep our representatives inline with our rights and such, or we will lose those rights.  So I say to all my "brothers and sisters" out there on the road,  get involved, even if, by becoming a member of ABATE, your voice will be heard by numbers. Ride hard, ride safe ........

My first experience of riding was at the age of 7 years old on a mini bike; I progressed through the years on several different makes and models and now ride a Harley Heritage Softtail.  I love to ride.  I have served as Vice President and President of an Eagle's Aerie;  Sargent at Arms for Son's of American Legion and Vice President of Snowmobile/ATV Club.  Currently I am also ABATE of North Idaho's Face Book Administrator; as well as serving as Ambassador at Large.  I joined ABATE originally because they need numbers; I have since learned more about the laws that effect our riding and hamper our freedoms; also the need for enforcement/creation of laws that enhance our safety; and protect our freedoms.

Bob Berlinghoff

Hi, my name is Bob Berlinghoff some people call me Sarge. I’m the coordinator for Hells Canyon. I started riding and racing dirt bikes at 14 and have been riding street bikes since I was 19. If it burns fossil fuel I'll ride it. I retired out of the army guard in 1997 as an E-8 1sgt then I retired from Clearwater paper (Potlatch) in 2006. I joined the Hells Canyon chapter of ABATE 4 years ago. The chapter is full of great people that will go out of their way to help other members. We try to set some sort of event like a ride, broom stick pool or just get together every month to keep members active in the chapter. Come join us at our events, you'll meet and make new friends and have a good time.

Pauline Durst

I moved to Orofino Id in July 1998 (moving from overseas) and joined ABATE of North Idaho in November 2000. When I first started I was amazed at the variety of people I met. I mean - from all walks of life. The diversity in careers and personalities drew me in and continue to this day to fascinate me. I come from the "melting pot" of the Pacific, but I have never seen so many different types of people gathering together to support one goal, the right to ride free. I am proud to belong to this organization. I believe in what ABATE is doing and will stand by what we represent and will continue to fight for our freedom to ride free.
The rides, the events and the friends I have made along this journey… Something I will always treasure.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
