Bought my 1st set of wheels in 1964 at 12 yrs. old…..a Honda Trail 90 for $300 from the Idaho Forest Service……that is how it all started!  Road off road and trails for the first 4 yrs until I got my driver’s license and motorcycle endorsement…..no the real fun began….Triumph Cub 200, Triumph Tiger 500- Triumph Bonnie……175 Yamaha Trials bike……Kawasaki 1000 LTD..Harley Davidson Sportster XLCH…..01” Heritage…..a couple of Police Electra Glides and currently ride a 2012 CVO Road Glide (skunkworks model). I enjoy the challenge of working and modifying the bikes to my style…stretched bags and tanks….currently rebuilding a 1964 HD Topper Scooter and a 1960’s era Allstate scooter…

My wife (Cristene) operate/own Justus Trading Co Inc….we Buy, Sell and Transport Grain Commodities for the Dairy, Feed Lot and Feed Mill industry….we have been in our own business for the past 10 yrs and before that for 25 yrs at my family’s textile business.  Cristene and I also operate a non profit animal sanctuary for special needs dogs-most are Blind or Deaf or a combination of the two….Double J Dog Ranch in Hauser Lake, Id.

I joined ABATE of North Idaho for one reason….to make a difference!  To help promote Safety and Education to the masses that have no idea what we are about and why we exist and to help protect our rights as a motorcyclist in the Inland Northwest.

Ride safe and keep your head on a swivel!!

Belinda Wright-Ertz grew up in a small farming community south of Spokane, Washington. She received a red Honda 90 about the age of 10 years which she rode on the gravel roads, fields, and in the scab-rock, clothed in shorts, halter top and no shoes. (Youth is wasted on the young) She now is very content to be clothed in protective clothing, and leave the driving to her husband Dan Ertz, though she does have her motorcycle endorsement. Belinda got her first "real" job away from the farm at the age of 14 years and has worked as a bookkeeper since she was 18. She currently works at Lake Forest Interior Design Center (floor covering/furnishings/design), and has been their bookkeeper since 1998. She also is the backup instructor for Kick Box Aerobics and holds an Advanced Blue Belt in Marshal Arts, something she would like to pursue (time permitting) before she can no longer pick herself up off the mat. Belinda firmly believes that if we want our Government to make good choices for us as individuals we need to do something. She joined ABATE in 2010 so she could be present and accounted for.

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.....
