In Memory of "Gunner"

Gunner This is “Gunner”. He was a big, burly, tough biker. Once, at a biker meeting, he wore a pink t-shirt and tierra. No one dared to comment.

In 2009, Gunner was killed when a pickup truck pulled out, in front of him.   This website is dedicated to Gunner and Share the Road. We welcome your input, questions, and involvement. Thank you for visiting, and come-on, get involved. Click on Gunner's photo to see his story.

Our Story
Motorcycles are fun, but they can be dangerous. Half the motorcycle deaths and serious injuries are “self inflicted”. The biker was driving faster than his ability to control the motorcycle under the conditions, or driving under the influence. There are good, affordable motorcycle basic and advanced programs that teach motorcycle drivers how to be better drivers and survive on the street. We list sources of these training programs on our Contacts page. In the other half of motorcycles’ serious injuries and death crashes, the biker collided with or crashed while avoiding a car, truck or bus that had violated the motorcycle’s space. ABATE of Oklahoma developed, staffed and equipped our Share the Road program that takes motorcycle awareness training directly to the other driver. This web site supports our Share the Road training program. Here you can learn about our different programs: cars & light trucks, buses, and big rig trucks. You can also find information on our “Through Their Eyes” program that shows motorcyclists why other drivers have difficulties seeing motorcycles, and what motorcyclists can do to avoid limitations of cars, buses and tractor trailers. You can see our schedule of upcoming presentations, and listen to comments from people who have attended one of our programs. We show you what it takes to become a certified instructor. So, please browse our site. If you have questions, want to learn more about a presentation for your organization, or have comments and/or suggestions about our Share the Road program or our web site, please go to our Contact page.

  Tribute to a Fallen Biker

Wrecked motorcycleToday, people are visually oriented, for example: YouTube, Facebook, smart phone cameras. It is no longer effective to tell a story, you have to show the story. If you want to drive home a point, you must use visual tools. So, how do you imprint on a driver's mind the need to look out for and respect motorcycles? We not only tell them a story about killing motorcyclists, we show them a real example from a car verses motorcycle collision.

Click on the wrecked photograph to get “the rest of the story”, and to see how you can help us with the wrecked motorcycle project.
