Riding for over 45 years, Navy veteran, married, kids, and still work f/t,,, I don't think I'll ever get to retire. We keep adopting kids from the foster care system here in NY
Damn, I am having trouble staying awake today.
Wishing all your Mother's a ~HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY~
Me as my son and only child is in Heaven well I will be riding and talking with him.
As haven't been on in a bit, want to welcome all who have signed up lately.
Love this site.
~RIDES SAFE, KEEP THE SHINY SIDE UP AND YOUR KNEES IN THE BREEZE~
We aren't very big in traffic and any one of the vehicles could have obstructed views,,, or all of them. Then put one fading into your lane on a cell phone or texting. Hell why not, spilling a little coffee or dropping a sandwich.
Ever have a close call by a vehicle almost, or actually, hitting you while on your bike?
Check out this picture and tell me how they are going to know one of the shapes in the back window is my helmet ( or head )?

Edge Walker, I had a seagul off the coast of Florida one time going to Daytona that turned me into what looked like roadkill all over my jacket and man,,,, did it ever stink.
Steve, I'm dying over here,,,, reminds me of getting the bee up the armpit of my T-shirt and trying to dance and skid my way to a stop to get it out. Stung me about 6 times,, total BS about only sting you once and then dying.
All these stories are great and really good information for our "new" riders,,,, or should I say less fortunate ones with no practical experience yet.
The Safety courses are great and definitely should be taken by anyone that wants to learn how to ride but,,,, they don't mention this shit,,, do they???
Steve, Nice story about you and your son. Now, With my son still stationed in Cheyenne, Wyoming,,,, I have to plan to get there so he show some of the mountain roads in Colorado he keeps telling me about. Ride safe, ride free and ride often.
