From The President’s Desk

Wow where has 2023 gone and just like that we are at the end of another great ASR season. I am so looking forward to what the Lord has for ASR in 2024 and what new doors will be open. Our theme for next year is Taking It To The Streets.  State chapters we need your chapters more motivated this year to be the atmosphere changers where ever you ride to. Also I would like to ask each state chapters too  try to support all chapter events in your state. Unity is key. Also try to get out to other none ASR state events. Here is where you make a difference and make  those contacts. And to let everyone see who you are and who you ride for.
Our season starts of on March 1 with Bind The Strong Man. The locations of BTSM are listed in our rumblings newsletter and on both our group Facebook group pages.
I will keep the up coming event list updated as  those events  are created in the event section. It is important to create your events in the event section. If not and you only make a post of your event on our group pages. It will only get lost and buried through other posts. If you can’t figure out how to create your event on the group pages. You can email your information to the board. And it will then get created.
I am so looking forward to the national rally in Omaha,Nebraska this year. The hotel information will be posted on our Facebook group pages and on the website in December. This way you can start making your plans to attend the national rally.
Also I am excited for the Black Hills South Dakota Ministry Tour that Brother Jeff Keck has planned. It leaves Omaha on Sunday after the rally. August 4-10. We will have more information on this at a later time and  post it  on our Facebook group pages soon.
Sister Zerby will be getting ready to start sending out 2024 Invoices. I ask to be patient with her since this will be her 1st year doing invoices. So for the months of January and February please keep an eye on your email for them. If you have changed your email it is your responsibility to send your changed email to the board. Remember that your yearly dues is what  keeps this ministry running.
Well I had a vision of a great ASR gathering.
When Laureen and I  went to the Ohio State Reformatory. We took the Ohio the tour.  This is the place where they filmed the move Shaw Shank Redemption. I thought man would this be a cool place to have a ASR gathering. Then I thought a little more. Wouldn’t it be neat if we could put our bikes in a nice line down on one of the cell blocks for a great photo shoot. I am working with the director of operations at the reformatory to see if they can make this happen. If so it would be either be in May or June. They also have an area to rent out inside if we would go the catered route. Hope to have all the information together  real soon. And all have it posted on our group pages.
Last I would like to wish you all a very blessed  Merry Christmas this year.

Delayed Gratification:


1 Corinthians 6: 1-3

Our appetites can overtake and enslave us. Perfectly good activities can get us into trouble when we fail to practice them in moderation, Or there may be times when we don’t feed our appetites in balanced ways. Then we become so starved that we fall to the temptation of our addiction at the first opportunity.

This happened to Esau. One day he came home hungry he promised his birthright to his younger brother in exchange for a bowl of porridge. We are warned:”Lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears” (Hebrews 12:16-17). The apostle Paul wrote: “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Corinthians 6:12).

We need to satisfy our appetites in appropriate ways so we don’t become starved and thus more susceptible to temptation. There may be some good things that have such control over us that it’s best to avoid them altogether. If we allow the demands of our appetites to become overpowering, we risk losing things (or people) that we might never get back.

6: 1-6: Taking someone to court, as painful as it may be, is often the easy way out of a conflict. Instead of working out problems out, we hand them over to an impartial judge. Dealing with conflict in such an indirect way usually leads to separation rather than reconciliation. Paul warned the Corinthian believers not to go to unbelieving judges to settle their disputes. If God’s power is at work within us, we can use the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit to settle our conflicts. We need to keep this in mind as we seek to make amends with those we have harmed.

Winter Motorcycle Riding


As they say in a certain famous TV show, winter is coming. Depending on where you live motorcyclists around the world are grudgingly putting away their bikes and waiting for spring.

Is it too difficult to bear the thought of your bike sitting unused in the garage until the trees have leaves again? For many riders, riding is an all-year passion that never takes a break. Conventional wisdom says that you shouldn’t ride in the winter, but for many riders who truly love riding, that’s all the more incentive to get back behind the bars.

So, if you’ve decided that you want to ride in the winter, you need to know how winter riding is very different and what you’ll need to do to keep yourself safe.

What’s Different About Riding a Motorcycle in Winter?

Winter riding is different in many ways besides just feeling colder (though it definitely is that.) There are all kinds of considerations you’ll need to think about in terms of how you approach riding and outfit yourself.

The physics of cold air, snow, ice, sleet and other winter weather conditions will have major effects on the performance of both your bike and your body. It’s your responsibility to know what you can expect from winter conditions and be ready to respond to them. Some of the problems you might encounter include:

Riding at high speeds during the winter is cold—like, really cold. A wintertime highway ride will chill you to the bone faster than you’d ever believe possible thanks to the brutal wind and the relative lack of full-body movement to warm you up. That means that dangerous cold-weather conditions like hypothermia and frostbite can come into play if you haven’t insulated yourself properly.
The rubber in your tires will shrink, decreasing their ability to grip the road. Your tires will warm up as you ride, but it’s not smart to rely on this (especially since they’ll cool right back down if you stop moving). If your tires don’t have enough tread, you’ll have even less traction. Lack of traction also means longer stopping distances, both for you and for other vehicles on the road.
Weather conditions like snow and ice can make traction even worse and decrease visibility as well. Even if you’re not planning to ride in these conditions, we all know that they can pop up when least expected while on a ride. Ask me how I know. Or better yet ask my how many times I rode in snow.
You’ll start to lose dexterity in your fingers and toes as your body rushes to conserve heat for your vital organs. That means less agility when you’re working the brakes and throttle and slower reaction times when you need your reflexes to be at their quickest.
Put these things together and you’ll get the picture: A bike is harder to control in the winter, and your body is less able to handle the conditions. The solution to these problems is a mixture of gearing up and adjusting your riding and mindset to the conditions.

Motorcycle Rider Winter Gear

Dressing for Winter Riding

“All the gear, all the time,” as they say—and if your “all the time” includes riding in the winter, “all the gear” is often going to mean taking the extra steps to bundle up. When it comes to your winter riding outfit, the word is “insulation,” and lots of it. The more insulation you can get around your body, the better protected you’ll be from the cold.

When trying on winter riding gear, you’re looking for a fit that’s snug, but not overly tight. You want some breathability and room for air to circulate, as well as clothing that you can layer. Speaking of layering, it’s the single easiest and best way to protect yourself from the cold when riding in the winter. Start with a moisture-wicking base layer, add your main insulation layer in the middle and put a waterproof outer shell layer on top (preferably also insulated). It’s easy to just throw your layers on once you’ve got a few of them in your wardrobe. If you get too hot while riding, make a stop and throw your top layer in your saddlebags or motorcycle tourpack/top case.

Heated Gear
I can not stress this enough. If you want to stay completely warm the entire time while riding in the cold or freezing cold. Is spend the money and buy the complete heated gear line. Which is a heated jacket or liner, pants, gloves and socks. When you combine the complete heated gear it will be like riding on top of a toaster. Go ahead ask me. This is how I stayed out as a winter warrior.

I also can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have waterproof gear in the winter. You may not plan on riding in the snow or rain, but you may get caught in it against your will—and you really don’t want to have a cold, soaking-wet body in that situation. Whenever possible, look for gear that’s waterproof.

Full-face and flip-up helmets, known for getting hot in the summer, shine in the wintertime. If you typically wear an open-face helmet for warm-weather riding, winter is a great time to go for a more protective model. (Side note: Full-face helmets offer much better protection in any month of the year.) Remember to grab a neck warmer, too, because the gap between your jacket and helmet is one of the easiest places for the cold to sneak in.

Motorcycles in mountains

It should go without saying that functionality needs to always come before looks when choosing gear. But it’s especially important in the winter when a lot of the gear looks a little bulky and awkward but is totally necessary for real protection. If you’re going to ride in the winter, accept that the safest and best gear might make you look a little bit like the Abominable Snowman and get on with the riding. Again heated gear eliminates the bulkness.

Other Winter Riding Gear
Riding safely in the winter means packing the whole kit. Here are some other items to pack in your winter bag that range from handy to genuine lifesavers:

Hand Warmers: These small and inexpensive packets are highly effective for keeping your hands toasty for wintertime rides. If you don’t have heated gloves or heated grips. It’s as easy as slipping a warmer packet into your gloves before you head out, and most offer enough heating power for several hours of riding.
Heated Handlebars/Heated Seat: If you’re planning on doing long rides in the cold, these will keep you comfortable on a level that warm clothes and hand warmers won’t. They’re surprisingly inexpensive and simple to install, and they can make all the difference when you’re in it for the long haul.
Snacks and Water: Your body burns more calories in the winter just trying to stay warm, and you’re vulnerable to dehydration as well. Keep yourself feeling great and at your most alert while you’re riding by carrying some simple, nutritious snacks like beef jerky or nuts, plus a reusable water bottle.
Helmet Communications System: A waterproof motorcycle Bluetooth headset that attaches to your helmet is the perfect way to stay in touch while you’re out for a winter ride. These voice-activated motorcycle communication headsets give you a key lifeline to the outside world when you’re riding and make it easy to manage your communications completely hands-free so you don’t have to fumble with buttons in the cold.

Important Riding Techniques for Winter

First off, know that winter riding isn’t generally recommended for beginners. If you’ve been riding for less than a year, it’s usually a good idea to build up your skills first before tackling the challenges of winter riding.

If you’re confident that you’re ready to hit the road and brave the cold, know these techniques and practice them before you take your first winter ride. They just might save your life.

Improve your tires’ traction by getting them warmed up before you take a ride. Different riders recommend different ways to warm up your tires, so try a few and choose the one that works for you–even if it’s just taking a few laps around the neighborhood before getting on the road. You can You Tube a video or two on this.
You will need to increase the following distance that you give to other vehicles, since both they and you will likely have longer stopping distances in the winter.
Recognize that in winter weather conditions, drivers will be even more distracted and less able to see you than normal. By the same token, conditions like snow and sleet will seriously cut down your vision, too, so make sure to stay even more keenly aware of your blind spots.
Get familiar with some techniques for snow and ice riding. Riding on snow and ice is a whole different animal from typical winter riding and has its own set of techniques that borrows a lot from dirt riding skills. Even if you don’t plan on seeking out snow and ice to ride on (and most people shouldn’t), these skills can save your life if you get caught in a snowstorm or hit a patch of ice unexpectedly.
Resist the urge to panic if you find yourself in some wild weather. The smartest move you can make in adverse weather conditions is to acknowledge when you’re out of your depth and ride calmly, slowly and carefully to the nearest place where you can get some shelter and wait out the storm.
If you get caught in a snow storm and have to ride through it to the nearest exit. Slow it all down put your four way blinkers on. Drag your feet. Yes keep your feet and boots dragging this will help steady you incase your bike starts to lose traction.
Try to stay in the packed down track marks from the vehicles in front of you.

One thought about bike selection: If you have a dual-sport or adventure bike, winter can be the perfect opportunity to bust it out and have some fun. An adventure bike with a good pair of tires can handle cold and even snowy conditions better than just about any other kind of motorcycle. And should you end up laying down your bike on a patch of ice, an adventure bike is better able to take the hit than a sport or touring bike. With a touring bike just slow it all down and you will be fine.

Group Rides in Wintertime

Riding in a group is always a great way to explore the road with your favorite people, and taking in some breathtaking wintertime vistas together is an experience you’ll never forget. But riding in a group is also a great way to make winter riding safer, since you’ll have more help if you need it, more eyes on the road and increased visibility to other motorists. When riding in a group in the winter time. You do not ride side by side and you do not ride staggered close together. This is so un safe for winter riding. You want to leave a much bigger gap/space from the rider in front of you. So you have a total clear path and view of what is in front of you. This gives you time to see and react if something arises.

Remember that the usual etiquette of group riding applies. That’s especially true for the number one rule: Ride your own ride. Chasing another rider who passes you or trying to keep up with riders who are far ahead of your skill level will only get you into situations you’re not ready for—and the consequences are all magnified during the winter.

Winter Motorcycle Maintenance Tips

Winter can also be hard on a motorcycle itself, so don’t forget to take your bike’s maintenance needs into count.

Road salt is just as corrosive to bikes as it is to cars, so make sure to give your bike a thorough hose-down after any ride in snowy conditions where roads have been salted. Remember that salt can stay on roads and in standing water for weeks after it snows.
Check your bike’s tire pressure frequently in the winter. Tires lose pressure easily in the cold, and the last thing you want on a winter road is to be running at less than your recommended PSI.
Make sure you’ve got the appropriate tires on your bike for the winter. True motorcycle snow tires are rare, so as long as you don’t regularly see yourself riding on actual snow, a good pair of all-weather tires should be sufficient. What you don’t want is ultra-sticky racing tires or any tire with worn-down tread.
If you’re putting your bike away for the winter, make sure to get it ready for storage so that you can quickly get it back to full performance in the spring. Store your bike inside if possible or get a good cover for it, use a battery tender to keep your battery healthy and give the bike a good cleaning before putting it to bed.
The adventure of riding never ends, and a dedicated rider can make it through the winter just fine with some preparation and a willingness to live a little bit on the edge.
Some of my best riding and touring have been in the winter. The same scenic places you ride in the summer. Well they have a total beautiful look to them in the winter. You can be a true winter warrior. Or just take a few rides in the freezing cold winter. If you dress right. Have the correct gear. Slow it all down and don’t ride in the dark. You will experience a different kind of riding.
Stay safe my ASR family this winter. And keep the contact patch between the snow banks.

Motorcycle riders are known for their rituals. Those ritualistic tendencies come out when the riding season draws close. Most riders take one last big epic ride before they park their bikes for the winter and freezing temperatures.

Any doubts can be answered in the owner’s manual which came with your ride or online or with the motorcycle storage tips below. And after one successful winter, every winter after that will be much

“Riders start bringing their bikes in for winter storage and custom design work right after Labor Day.”

Some riders see winter as the ideal time to make motorcycle customizations or enhancements they have meant to get done. Some riders drop their bikes off at dealerships in the winter and pick up their transformed custom pieces in the spring.

If you enjoy the ritual and want to self-storage it alone, here are essential tips to prepare your bike for winter storage.

How to Winterize a Motorcycle for Storage
A proper motorcycle winterization checklist helps ensure your motorcycle remains in good condition and is ready for use once the warmer weather returns.

Here’s a step-by-step guide for how to store motorcycles for winter:

Freshen up those fluids. That means all of them: motor oil, clutch, brake, and coolant.

Although, this depends on how long it’s been since the last time you changed your fluids. If the last time you changed your clutch and brake fluid was a month ago, and a few hundred miles driven, stick to changing the oil. My rule of thumb is I change everything before I put my bike away for the winter regardless if I had changed the fluids a month or two prior.

Changing fluids regularly is essential because they contain contaminants from regular usage, which become corrosive over time and can destroy rubber seals. In addition, the DOT4 brake fluid absorbs water and needs to be changed every two years.

Change the oil

The last thing you want is your motorcycle sitting idle all winter, filled to the brim with oil contaminated with solvents and sediments. It might not run if the bearings have been corroded or damaged.

Changing the oil is a vital and simple step to take to avoid forking out money down the road.

Tenderize the battery

How to store a motorcycle battery for winter? Some riders recommend starting their bike every week during the winter and letting it run.

A much better solution, however, is to clean the battery electrodes and hook them up to a battery tender (or trickle charger) for the entire duration of the winter. Not only should you use a battery tender during the winter—but one should be used all the time after each ride.

If you properly winterize your motorcycle battery, it will help extend the longevity of the battery.

Buy a FOB battery to have at the ready. For those that use a key Fob. Or use a Fob for add on LED glow lights.
While we are on batteries, if your bike won’t start in the spring, it may be for one of two reasons: you forgot your pin or need to replace your FOB battery.

There’s nothing you can do about it, but your FOB battery will attempt to communicate with your bike all winter. By the time spring rolls around, you’ll inevitably need to replace it.

You should keep one in the drawer of your tool box in your garage next to your bike. And carry a spare on your bike.

Check your tires

How long do bike tires last in storage? This largely depends on the respective tire wear going into storage and how the bike is stored.

In addition to checking for even wear on your tires, ensure they have enough tread remaining. Ensure the tires are not worn to the extent that the wear bars are exposed. If you have any questions, contact your dealer. Also, check their inflation with an accurate gauge.

Your owner’s manual and VIN label lists the proper tire inflation pressures. You can put your bike on front and rear stands, lifts, or dollies to keep your motorcycle upright all winter. This will also relieve pressure on the tires.

If you do not use a lift, move the motorcycle at least once a month to prevent flat spots on the tires.

Prevent rust: scrub, wash, dry, and wax
Start with the dirtiest part of your bike. That means the chain (if your bike is equipped with one) and brakes. You’ll want a grunge brush and an O-ring safe degreaser for your chain.

For your brakes, you’ll want a disc cleaner. Inspect everything while cleaning so that you don’t discover any surprises during the spring. After that, wash and dry your bike. You especially want to do this if you cover your motorcycle because any moisture on your motorcycle can cause corrosion and mold.

Lastly, Wax/ Polish/or Ceramic coat your paint and treat any chrome as well. This will add extra protection for your bike while it’s in storage. Plus, it’ll be spotless when you take your bike out in the spring.

If you have leather seats or any leather items, treat them as well.

Wax and lubricate your chain if you have a chain drive.
Taking care of your chain before storage will extend its life.

Every 500 miles of street riding and every 200 miles of adventure/off-road riding should be followed by cleaning and waxing/lubricating your bike’s chain. Follow the guidance in your owner’s manual.

Begin by warming your chain with roughly five miles of riding. This will allow the lube to dissolve more effectively and enter the O-ring chain. Wipe off any unnecessary wax or lube.

Inspect the Belt Drive

Belt drives are cleaner than chain drives and require minimal inspection and adjustment. Before putting your bike away for the winter, inspect the inside and outside of the belt and look for chips, cuts, fraying, or missing teeth.

As is the case with a chain drive, proper tension is important. Be sure you consult the owner’s or service manual for the slack specification, measuring technique, and point at which to take the measurement.

Shaft drive basically zero maintenance. Check your owner’s manual for shaftdrive.

Prep the exhaust pipe

You’ll want to stuff any openings in your bike so that creatures don’t make their homes in them. This is especially important when keeping your bike outside or in a barn or shed. Or if you have holes or cracks in your garage where rodents can get in.

Some people use plastic bags for this purpose but spend the money on a muffler cover or any other product designed expressly for this purpose. Just remember to remove these items before your next ride.

Store on centerstand and/or stands if possible

If your bike has a centerstand, use it. But even better would be to get a motorcycle stand to keep both wheels off the ground.

This way, you don’t have to rotate the wheels to avoid flat spots. This motorcycle storage lift also prevents the suspension from working overtime and extends the suspension’s lifespan.

Use the correct cover
Should you cover your motorcycle?

While often used, a plastic cover is not the best motorcycle cover. It will trap moisture, potentially causing rust, corrosion, and mold. Instead, invest in an affordable, breathable cover.

Store in a well-ventilated area
The best place to store your bike is somewhere well-ventilated indoors. This way, air will circulate, and moisture or condensation won’t collect under your cover.

Just ensure there’s no fertilizer or chemicals around your bike since they can end up corroding your motorcycle.

What are common winterizing and storage mistakes?

Don’t start your bike up every week
Just turning your bike on in the garage isn’t a good idea.

If your bike is not brought up to the full operating temperature in cold temperatures, water may condense and end up in places where it doesn’t belong (when you ride your bike, the moisture gets cooked off, and your battery receives a recharge).
If you are one who likes to start your bike up in the winter to well just hear it. Start your bike and at least let it iddle for 20 minutes. This will then burn off any moisture.

Don’t drain your fuel tank

Don’t leave your gas tank empty unless you want it susceptible to corrosion and dried out seals. Instead, leave it full of gas and a quality fuel stabilizer additive. This is a vital step.

Without this treatment, the fuel turns into a crystalized, hard product and can clog carburetors and fuel injectors.

Don’t store a dirty bike

You’ll want to clean your motorcycle of road grit, grime, and bugs because they’ll eat away at any clear coat, anodized aluminum, polished metal finish, and stainless steel.

If you live in an area with salt or brine on the roads, you’ll also want to clean your bike since that’ll do a number on metal and rubber parts.

Before putting your bike away for winter, a final wash and wax is a good idea.

Don’t use a cheap cover or a tarp
You will want proper protection for your bike – especially if not stored in an enclosed storage unit. A poorly made cover may trap water, slip off, or chafe against the paint.

The result is that your bike will come out looking worse than when it went in.

Should I cancel my motorcycle insurance if I’m not riding in the winter?

There are several reasons not to cancel your motorcycle insurance policy during the winter months.

Warm winter days

While the seasons may change, unseasonably warm and clear winter days are perfect for a motorcycle ride. An uninsured ride, however, could expose you to an unforeseen incident and potential legal risk.

Don’t assume motorcycle thieves take the winter off either.

Unplanned damage while in storage
A significant winter storm, a fallen tree, or the possibility of fire should all be considered when evaluating the cancellation of your insurance policy. Remember, insurance is designed to protect you from unexpected and unplanned events. Without it, this type of incident may result in a total loss.

Common motorcycle winterization questions

Do you have to winterize a motorcycle?
Full winterization might not be necessary if you live in a region with mild winters and continue to ride your motorcycle regularly.

Still, it’s strongly recommended if you won’t be riding it for an extended period during the colder months, especially in areas where temperatures drop significantly or where there’s a lot of moisture.

Not winterizing can lead to various issues, such as:

Battery drain
Fuel degradation
Tire damage
Corrosion and rust
Oil contamination

Can you store a motorcycle outside in winter?

Yes, you can store a motorcycle outside in winter, but doing so presents challenges and potential risks to the bike’s condition. If you must store your motorcycle outside during the winter, take the following precautions to minimize potential damage:

Use a quality cover
Check on it periodically
Lift the bike off the ground
Choose a sheltered location
Cover exhaust pipes and air intake
Ensure your motorcycle insurance remains valid even if you aren’t riding it
How often should I start my motorcycle in the winter?
If you’ve properly winterized your bike, there’s no need to start it during the winter. It is recommended to avoid starting the motorcycle periodically through the winter if you’re not going to take it for a full ride, as short starts can introduce condensation into the engine and exhaust.

If you feel the need to start it, ensure you:

Let It Reach Operating Temperature: This helps burn off condensation and ensures the oil circulates thoroughly.

Ride It: Instead of just letting it idle, take it for a ride long enough to charge the battery and bring all parts to operating temperatures. This is often not feasible due to winter road conditions, but it’s the best method if you’re set on running the bike.

If you’re concerned about the battery, it’s better to remove it and keep it on a trickle charger or battery maintainer indoors.

Can you ride a motorcycle in winter?
Yes I used to be a very long time winter warrior.

You can ride a motorcycle in the winter, but it has increased challenges and risks. If you’re considering winter riding, here are some factors to consider and winter weather riding tips to follow.

Make sure you have the right winter gear on. The key is to stay warm. Keep the wind off of you. Keep an eye on the road conditions watch out for black ice and any salt clumps and slush. Try not to ride at night.

How much does it cost to store a motorcycle?

The cost to store a motorcycle varies depending on several factors, including location, type of storage, duration, and additional services or amenities offered.

Can I store the motorcycle in a storage unit during the winter?
Yes, storing a motorcycle in a storage unit during the winter is an option. If you don’t have a garage and prefer not to leave your motorcycle outside, opting for a storage unit offers protection from the elements, potential theft, and other potential damages. Here are some key features to look for if you are thinking of using a storage unit:

Size of the unit
Ground protection
Climate-controlled storage
How to de-winterize a motorcycle?
When spring arrives, thoroughly check the bike before hitting the road to ensure everything is in good working order, including:

tire pressures
other systems
Refer to your motorcycle’s owner manual for specific requirements or recommendations.

The bottom line on winter motorcycle storage

If you live in a climate with a winter, you will have to store your bike. Luckily, storing a motorcycle for the winter is incredibly easy and something you can do independently after reading a manual, an article, or just watching a few YouTube videos.

If you go with a dealer to store your bike, they will take care of all the necessary maintenance to ensure your ride is ready when the weather improves.

But, if you want to go it alone, make winterizing your ride a yearly ritual so you can spend less time in the garage and more time on the road. See your motorcycle’s owner’s manual for additional instructions and steps when placing or removing your motorcycle from storage.

For those riders in the deep south or out west that don’t have to deal with the freeze of winter. Well just keep on riding LoL

When Inviting People To The Group Page

Just a little info on when you invite someone to our ASR facebook group.
Please invite them to our friends page not the members page. We are getting quite a bit of over flow on the invites to the members page. Also if your inviting someone. Make sure that their facebook profile and page is public not private. Already dealing with an over flow of fake/spam accounts. So if one comes in that is completely private it will just be deleted.

Thank you
