1300tourer.com Newsletter #10

Hello Members!

I hope the summer is going well for everyone and lots of miles are rolling beneath your wheels!

Many of you already know I have been working on a new project, and I'd like to fill everyone in on what it is and what direction we are going with it.

Riders United, LLC. was formed on March 31st of this year. My goal with this organization is to build an online community with the same feel that 1300tourer.com has. The membership will be open to all riders, everywhere.

The mission statement: "Bringing motorcycle riders from around the world together to create the largest motorcycle social network focused on lending a helping hand through volunteer opportunities and assisting charitable organizations in a team-oriented atmosphere."

I have assembled a Board of Directors and we are currently awaiting approval from the IRS for non-profit status... my goal is to go live with the website on January 1st, 2010. In the meantime, the website will continue to be built and functionality tested. For now membership will be free to anyone here who would like to join (visit www.ridersunited.org to sign up). (The Board of Directors has voted - memberships will be free).

I hope some of you will join us in helping to build a group of volunteers willing to help out in their community! It should be quite an adventure. I'll keep everyone updated as to the progress of Riders United, LLC.

Operations at 1300tourer.com will continue as normal and I have no plans of disassembling this website. It is a true pleasure for me to be a part of this great group of people, and that will not change.

Ride safe!

Will Reece
