  • When in doubt, slow down. No one has ever hit something too slow.
    Learn from the mistakes of others. You wont live long enough to make all of them yourself.
    Never let a motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didnt get to three seconds earlier.
    Quick fixes are named for how long they stay fixed.

       
    Don't let the good times pass you by,grab all you can.

  • If following a truck and you can't see his mirrors he can't see you.

  • NONE OF THE MOTORCYCLES IN THIS PICTURE CAN BE SEEN IN THE TRUCKER'S MIRROR'S OR OTHER BLIND SPOTS. Take a moment and "SHARE this on your Facebook Page. IT COULD SAVE THE LIFE OF A SOMEONE YOU LOVE.
    [/size]Folks, riding season is upon us here in Canada and northern United States. I have posted this before and will post again. When riding on highways, try not to "hang" around tractor trailers or any large trucks. Not only do they have a hard time seeing you, but there are other hazards associated with being near trucks, especially flatbeds and dump trucks which spew stones and pebbles behind them. Several times a year there are incidents of wheel separation from commercial vehicles resulting in the deaths of car drivers.
    The stats below refer to Ontario, Canada, but there is no reason to believe it is any different anywhere in the World as these commercial carriers try to cut costs. Lets be safe out there.
    [/color][/size]TORONTO - Several Ontario police forces engaged a two-day traffic blitz in late June, pulling over 190 commercial vehicles deemed to be in need of a safety inspection. Overall, 40% of the total vehicles, which included flat-bed trucks, pickups, cube vans, straight transport trucks, and long-haul tractor-trailers, failed the inspection. And of those 76 vehicles that flunked the safety check, 36 were in bad enough shape to have their licence plates removed on the spot, deemed by police and Ministry of Transportation (MTO) officers to be a safety risk to other motorists on the road. A total of 199 provincial charges were laid. (Source: Toronto Sun)[/color]

  • Nice thread. It's good to reiterate the safety tips for a safe ride. Another tip is to look twice before switching lanes or turning.
