I had reached a certain age; grown the requisite oversized waistline (I’m being kind to myself) and now sported a graying beard. Like tens of thousands before me sharing these similar traits, I purchased my first motorcycle. Go figure! And I have to say I’m enjoying the heck out of my weekend rides.
May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. While many drivers may be subject to the antics of certain motorcyclists, by far most of the people who ride motorcycles are just like you and me, average Joes and Janes who enjoy their hobby and are mindful and respectful of everyone’s safety on the road.
And because we need to share the road with all types of vehicles I want to offer several techniques to help create greater awareness of the particular hazards that may be encountered when on the road with motorcyclists.
