Get ready for the accidents

Being a bike lover, I tend to look at all the riders I see while driving around and starting last night and this morning, I noticed a of a lot more bikes on the road and about 80% or more had no gear. Most had helmets to protect their tail sections rather than there head. One guy actually had his joe rocket flip flops on while riding a harley in shorts. I was in disbelief. It looks like the weekend will be a bad one with the increase in riders out there in the fair weather. To give you an idea about the increase, I usually only see 1-2 bikes on the way to work and this morning I saw close to 20. So you guys that will be riding, wear your gear and be safe.

It was around this time last year Bryan and I ran up on a huge cruizer wreck on 3090. 5 bikes piled up and people laying everywhere. :eh:
