No matter how tough it gets, though, spouses should know that their Key Spouse representatives have got their back.

Allan Woods, Installation motorcycle safety chief, has scheduled a Women Only Experienced Rider Course (ERC) on Friday, July 30. Learn emergency maneuvers on a controlled range, rather than on a busy street.
