From The Director:
Well we got another snow storm today as this is being written. Will Mother Nature ever give up? It really won’t be long before we can get the Wings out. It sure seems like forever.
Once again I would like to ask our chapter members to let us know if there are places to go, people to see that they have discovered in their readings or wanderings. This is your chapter and we want to help make it enjoyable for everyone. We are also looking for people to step up into staff positions. Being on staff is a wonderful way to meet more fantastic people throughout GWRRA. If you were to ask former staff members about their experiences, one of the first things they will talk about is the lasting friendships that you make. Talk to former staffers and consider helping out. You won’t regret it!
In the meantime, pray for green and no more white!
Dennis and Gloria Resch
From the Chapter Educator
Hopefully we will be riding soon. One of the first things we all need to be doing, and before every ride, is performing a TClock inspection. For those of you who don’t know what that is, or as a reminder to the rest of us, here is an explanation.
T — Tires & Wheels - check tire pressure, bulging, and imbedded objects and tread depth
C — Controls, levers – broken, bent, or cracks, cables- make sure they are not leaking and are well lubricated, hoses- no cracks, leaks, cuts or bulging and no discolorations, throttle moves freely, snaps closed, no reviving
L — Lights - battery lenses reflector wiring and head lamps
O — Oil - check levels on engine, hypoid gear oil, hydraulic fluid, coolant and fuel
C — Chassis frame - suspension, chain/belt and fasteners
K — Kickstand center and side - make sure they have no cracks and spring back into place and tension to hold bike position
Happy April Birthday
