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…
I operate operate/own Justus Trading Co Inc along with my business partner….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 15 yrs and before that for 30 yrs at my family’s textile business. I am also one of the Directors of a nonprofit 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. I also am a MRF member on the National front!
Ride safe and keep your head on a swivel!!
State Deputy Coordinator
Born, raised and lived in the Denver area until I moved to Coeur d'Alene in 1998. Retired from a career in printing in 2013. Started riding when I was 15 – a Vespa. I have owned more than 40 motorcycles and currently own a 1967 Triumph TR6C and ride a 2003 Road King. I competed, on an amateur level, in enduros and motorcycle drag racing. I first went to Sturgis in 1977 and have been every year since 1985. I am life member of the AMA and HOG. I also belong to the MRF and ICMS. Motorcycles, and the people who ride them, have always been an important part of my life.
I earned my B.S in Accounting from the University of Idaho (UI) in 2005. I am currently the Financial Specialist for the UI Department of Theatre Arts. During my 15 years at the University of Idaho I have had some leadership roles with different organizations. I have been a member of the Hells Canyon Chapter of North Idaho ABATE since 2014. James Pine and I plan to be married next June and we have a handsome baby boy Hunter to follow in our footsteps.

State Membership Secretary
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.....

Amb. at Large
My first experience of riding was at the age of 7 years old on a mini bike; I progressed through the years on several different makes and models and now ride a Harley Heritage Softtail. I love to ride. I have served as Vice President and President of an Eagle's Aerie; Sargent at Arms for Son's of American Legion and Vice President of Snowmobile/ATV Club. Currently I am also ABATE of North Idaho's Face Book Administrator; as well as serving as Ambassador at Large. I joined ABATE originally because they need numbers; I have since learned more about the laws that effect our riding and hamper our freedoms; also the need for enforcement/creation of laws that enhance our safety; and protect our freedoms.
