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.

I have been riding for over 50 years and will ride until I can’t ride no more.
A friend of mine was an ABATE member and he convinced me to join. He is no longer in ABATE, but I will stick around because I know that what we are doing for the motorcycle riding community is important.
I was the treasurer for a few years and was Deputy Coordinator for Hells Canyon Chapter out of Lewiston. Now I am stepping into Big Dave’s Coordinator shoes and will do my best to carry on as he would have.
