With the weather turning nicer, there are more and more motorcyclists coming out on the roads. Please be aware of us as you drive about this great area. It is very easy to get distracted in a car and forget that there are vulnerable people around you.
The most common excuse given by drivers for why they hit a biker is, "I didn't see them." Many drivers complain about loud pipes (OK, there is loud and there is obnoxious; I'm talking loud), but that irritating sound lets you know we are there, to your side, so you don't swerve into us.
There is a campaign reminding drivers to look twice. Please do. We bikers are parents, husbands, wives, professionals, hard workers and loved.
