Thoughts on being a Road Captain:  Being a Road Captain provides me with an opportunity to mentor, to assist other riders, with a degree of confidence brought about by developing my riding skills while riding with a host of exceptionally skilled riders that enabled me to achieve this title.  As a Road Captain I hope to enhance our riders experiences and contributions to other organizations, while building/contributing to our Harley Chapter to be a dynamic, adventurous and participating member of the local community.  “Its all about the ride and the people you ride with.”

Thoughts on being a Road Captain: Road Captain responsibilities and duties I take very seriously he/she must make sure when planning a ride it is safe, enjoyable, and importantly gain the trust of the my fellow OP HOGs riding on my planned ride. I do believe that as a Road Captain I should try to plan rides that have a good destination venue which come with a planning and thoughtfulness. I want to remind all the riders on my planned ride to make sure their Harley is mechanically safe, good tires, lights all work, etc.  Last thought it I want all my rides to be as safe as possible and all to enjoy their Harley on the ride.

Thoughts on being a Road Captain. Ride safety is number one concern on my rides. Chapter riding is the safest way to ride a motorcycle. I do it to meet new friends and renew old ones who I would never meet otherwise. What a great bunch of people I get to hang with.
