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...

I am originally from Chicago Illinois and have been located in Idaho for over 13 years now. I have been riding since I was 10 years old but have had the misfortune of not having a bike for the last couple years. But now that I have my new family started with my fiance Monica Washburn and my son Hunter james pine I will soon be on two wheels again. I hope to continue doing my part with abate of North Idaho for as long as I am needed. And I am a member of the Hells Canyon chapter of abate of North Idaho.

Pauline Durst

I moved to Orofino Id in July 1998 (moving from overseas) and joined ABATE of North Idaho in November 2000. When I first started I was amazed at the variety of people I met. I mean - from all walks of life. The diversity in careers and personalities drew me in and continue to this day to fascinate me. I come from the "melting pot" of the Pacific, but I have never seen so many different types of people gathering together to support one goal, the right to ride free. I am proud to belong to this organization. I believe in what ABATE is doing and will stand by what we represent and will continue to fight for our freedom to ride free.
The rides, the events and the friends I have made along this journey… Something I will always treasure.

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!!

ANI Chaplain
Dan Benson

 I was born in Nov. of 1946 in L.A. In 1966, in a moment of insanity, I joined the Marine Corps for 4 years and am a Viet Nam Vet (’68-’69). After I left the Corps, I spent a few years in pole line work as well as underground cable construction. Then worked for about 30 years as an electrical foreman on various commercial and industrial projects around Idaho, Washington and Oregon, and finally retired at 66. My first ride was on a HD 250cc Sprint when I was 15 and the hook was set. I have ridden everything from BSA’s and Triumphs to metrics and back again. Spent about 5 years racing (read crashing) in AMA dirt track events in Districts 36 & 37 in California and had a ball. Even had the opportunity to ride a Zundapp at one point which was thoroughly disappointing. Moved up to a place just north of Kelso Lake in the mid 70’s to raise my family, eventually becoming involved with CMA and of course ABATE. My wife Chris and I have been blessed to come to know a pile of wonderful people through both organizations over the last several years, and the adventure continues. My all time favorite quote came from Steve McQueen who is reported to have said, “Life is being on the gas. Everything else is just waiting.” Hope to see you on the road.

Started riding motorcycles in 1959. Currently ride a 2008 HD Ultra Classic (pictured). Been married to the same woman since 1970 (also pictured). I am a member of ABATE of Washington, ABATE of Oregon and ABATE of N. Idaho, as well as a sustaining member of the Motorcycle Riders Foundation and several other MRO's. I am the President of the Legislative Action Committee (LAC) in Washington State, and am very active politically. I do graphic design and print flyers for many motorcycle groups. Even though I live in Vancouver, WA, I travel around the northwest and attend many rides and events, and meet many people in the biking community. If I haven't met you yet, I probably will soon. Motorcycling has introduced me to many fine people in a variety of professions and is a wonderful way to increase my circle of friends. I look forward to seeing all who I have already met and those who I will meet soon.
