Steve "Coyote" Libey

My name is Steve Libey, Everybody calls me Coyote.
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.




Deputy Coordinator
Bob Berlinghoff

Hi, my name is Bob Berlinghoff some people call me Sarge. I’m the deputy 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.




Angie Elliott

My name is Angie Elliott "Goofy" and I am pleased to be the Secretary for the Hells Canyon Chapter of ABATE of North Idaho.  It will be my first time in this position, but I look forward to learning more and doing the best job I can. 
I plan as part of this capacity to promote safety and awareness for bikers along with focusing on legislative issues relating to motorcyclists rights.
I have been a member of ABATE for many years and have gained some good friends. These brothers and sisters have become my extended "family" and I enjoy riding with them.  We have had many happy times together and I look forward to many more in the future.
I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.  "Life is good...enjoy the ride."  


Ken Goods

My name is Ken Goods. I received my first bike and started riding on my 9th birthday. I practically lived on dirt bikes until I got my first road bike at 22. I rode for several years with a motorcycle being my only form of transportation many times. I actually traded my beautiful 72 Monte Carlo for a chopper when I was 24. I lived in Portland at the time and the rain didn't seem to bother me as much then as it does now! :) Life went on and I got married and had a couple beautiful girls and the bikes all had to go. Never thought I'd get back into riding but when my beautiful wife (Melisa) won a 2007 Victory Jackpot in 2010 I made the mistake of riding it. We were going to sell it to pay some bills but once I rode it there was no way that was ever going to happen! Since then the wife and I have put many miles on the Victory and decided that a more comfortable long distance cruiser was in order. Got a great deal on a 2001 Ultra Glide a couple years ago and we ride it every chance we get. I still ride the Vic whenever I feel the need for speed! The best of both worlds really. We joined the Hells Canyon Chapter of Abate a couple years ago after going to a Spring Opener. We've had a lot of fun and met some really great people on some really great rides. I wanted to give a little back so when I was nominated to be Treasurer I accepted gladly. It's been a great ride and I hope that with the support of our members and other motorcyclists we can keep our freedoms to ride the way we want to ride.

I am now the Membership Secretary for the Hells Canyon chapter and will continue to promote safety and freedom for all bikers.
