Rocco Libertine
State Director
Rocco Libertine

Rocco Libertine started riding in the late 1970's, on a 350 two-banger, and experienced that feeling we all know so well, of being un-caged. Like most of us, he jumped on that bike, kicked it to life, and started to ride - self-taught. Experiences since have shown him the value of rider training. After a long break from riding, (career and kids), the road called to him once again, and after a brief fling with an '01 Victory, his current love is his 2010 Road King. Rocco became a member of the MMA in order to help promote our mission, increase rider visibility, and ride with folks who care about our biking community.

Ron Baldwin
Treasurer
Ron Baldwin


Ron began riding in the spring of 2007 after taking a Motorcycle Rider Safety Course. Beginning with a Yamaha 250 Virago to get back and forth to the train station, his passion for riding grew, and he upgraded to a Yamaha 1100 Silverado, and eventually a 2009 Harley-Davidson Heritage Softail Classic.

Joining the Cruiser Club Boston in 2008, Ron learned about the MMA and what they were doing to protect Motorcyclist Rights and joined that same year.
A firm believer of Rider Safety & Education, Ron became lead road captain with the CCBB in 2011, and has been a staunch supporter of the MMA. Realizing that riders' rights are becoming more constrictive; what we can do to our rides, where we can ride, and how we can ride, Ron decided to take on a bigger role with the MMA as District I Representative.

Ron says, "Join the MMA and help us, help you, to keep your freedom to ride as you want!"


Recording Secretary
Diane Alba


After taking a rider safety course, Diane started out on a Honda Nighthawk and now rides a 2015 Harley-Davidson Softtail Slim and a 2000 Sportster 1200 Custom.

Realizing that the freedoms of the road did not come without cost and need to be protected,Diane is excited to be able to participate in the process of protecting the rights and interests of Massachusetts' Motorcycle Riders.

Lionel Sousa
Area Representative
Lionel Souza

Lionel has been riding motorcycles since 1965, both on and off-road. Many years ago, he joined the MMA to participate in protecting the rights of all motorcycle riders in Massachusetts; his main concern at the time was Freedom of Choice.

Over the years, Lionel has become more involved at the County level, and interested in the broader MMA mission. Lionel believes that everyone who rides in Massachusetts should be a MMA member - if you're in Barnstable County, contact him to find out how!


Area Representative
Robbyn Kibler

Robbyn began riding only a few years ago despite having the urge for many years. She went from never riding to taking a class through the Massachusetts Rider Education Program and strongly encourages others to do so, even if they already ride!

Starting out on a Kawasaki 550, Robbyn says, "I then went to a Dyna Low Rider and loved getting lost on it - it's the ultimate bike!" But several years ago, she walked into Southampton Harley-Davidson to pick up a part for a friend and walked out with her own 2007 FXDC Street Bob and loves it!

Learning of the MMA, Robbyn became very active since joining - whether selling Raffle Tickets or delivering "LOOK! For Motorcycles" signs around Western Massachusetts. "My passion for motorcycling and a belief in our MMA mission interested me in taking on more responsibility," says Robbyn, "every rider should be a MMA member!"

Area Representative
Michael Pierce (Wanderer)

 

Michael has been riding motorcycles for 35 years. In those years, he has owned many of the brands and models on the market and really enjoys the wind in his face no matter what he is riding. Michael and his wife normally put on about 17,000 miles per year covering a lot of the East Coast and Canada. Ten years ago, a friend talked them into going to DC for a Rolling Thunder event on Memorial Day Weekend. Michael was so moved by the event and the organization that he had to be part of it. Michael and 3 friends formed the Vermont 1 Chapter. After about 5 years and many events and benefit rides, the Membership had grown. Michael says, "my wife and I had decided to take a break and enjoy being spectators again. I have been a member of the MMA for a number of years. Jay Kapsinow became a member in 1989 and the Franklin County Rep in 1990; last year he came to me and asked me if I would take over for him. I am looking forward to being the Franklin County Rep and all the challenges that come with the position.

Ray Pike III
Area Representative
Ray Pike III

 

Ray first began motorcycling in the late 80s with his first bike, a 500cc Yamaha. He currently rides a '93 FLT Ultra Classic. About ten years later he joined the MMA because "it seemed like the right thing to do if (we) don't want to lose the rights (we) still have" in the State. As the Norfolk County Rep he works to promote safe and responsible legislation, retain current freedoms, and regain a few lost. "The MMA is not a *me* thing, it's a *we* thing...don't ever catch yourself asking another motorcyclists 'what are you guys doing about (motorcyclist rights)?" Even a simple action -- like calling the Statehouse instead of thinking the next guy will take care of that -- is greater than a pile of inactions and excuses!" Its a fact: more members = more voices (and votes) at the State House. Ride Safe and God Bless.

Bruce Arsenault
Area Representative
Bruce Arsenault


Bruce has been an active member dating back to the days of the Modified Motorcycle Association of Massachusetts, and serving in numerous roles since the merger into the Massachusetts Motorcycle Association including Board Member roles as District IV Representative and most recently Vice Chairman until 2009.

Very excited to re-connect with old friends (who are thrilled to have him back in an official capacity!), Bruce is also looking forward to meeting new ones through the MMA!

Sandra Crossman Bio

Area Representative

Sandra Crossman

Sandra is a single mother of 3 adult and teenage kids and 1 grandson. Her oldest son, his fiancé, and their friends share her love of riding, so she rides with them as often as possible.
Sandra has been riding for about 20 years, starting out on the back of a bike and decided she wanted to ride her own. Taking the Motorcycle Riders Course, she purchased a Yamaha Virago 250 before upgrading to a Harley-Davidson 1200 Sportster Custom. Wanting something larger, she enjoys riding with family and friends every chance she has including benefit rides for Veterans, Special Olympics, delivering gifts to children around the holidays and Cruise for Cancer, as well as organizing several fundraisers for different causes.
Sandra says, "I became aware of the MMA about 15 years ago and slowly have learned more about them. I like what we stand for and support the MMA whenever I can. I'd like to educate more people in the good that they do for the biker community because I feel that not enough people know about the organization and what they have to offer us as bikers." 
 
Roy Lapan
District 4 Area Representative

Roy joined the MMA around 1982-83. After being a member for a few years, he became an area representative and when the position of Hamden County Rep opened up, Roy decided he wanted to get even more involved. As a County Rep, Roy said that he met and worked with a lot of great people!

Somewhere in 1987 the District 4 Manager position opened up, and Roy was encouraged to take it up. Dedicated District 4 members made Western Massachusetts stand out in those years with helmet protest runs, fund raising for various charities, voter registration drives and the MMA Fall Roundup!

In about 1989-90, work and family life didn't allow Roy to devote the time he thought was needed and he decided to retire. But Roy continued supporting the MMA by paying his dues and attending as many events as possible, until a fateful meeting with Brian Clark who cajoled him into going to meetings and getting more involved.

Roy said, "it seems I'm back at it again, full circle as an area representative and I'm happy to do it again!"
