whats with all of the wrecks?

jeez, sure has been alot lately. 2 right here in "thrillsville" unfortunately, one was fatal, passenger not wearing lid died of head injuries,rider was, he was treated and released.

then a 70something year old guy riding his scooter was involved in a crash, both of these were the fault of a cage operator, turning left in front of them.

in the fatal case, the car driver had neither a valid license NOR insurance.

just yesterday on 2 seperate occasions i had 2 cars change lanes right in front of me,cutting me off. too close for comfort. one was yacking on the cell phone.

a dangerous hobby we all have here.

Welcome to the world on 2 wheels. It will never stop. And with the prices of gas going up coupled with the cheap price of bikes, more and more inexperienced riders are hitting the streets now than ever. So plan on seeing the body count continue to rise. Not to mention all these young ones on SS bikes with little to no experience.

Yeah too many riders down lately.
Where I live there's lots of college students getting bikes to save money and have fun. Except they can barely ride them. Mix that with cagers who don't watch for us on the roads and it's not a good situation.

Now that it's summer more people are going to be out riding more often also. Be careful and wear your gear! <--- I sound old.

Would getting some organized rides together and getting some positive media attention maybe raise the awareness of the public? Just an idea. Get a couple of tv cameras to interview an organized bike rally where only liscensed and insured bikers with full gear could ride. No gearless squids allowed. Call it the "SAFE MOTORCYCLIST AWARENESS RALLY".
I dunno, just a thought. Maybe Motohouston.com could spearhead the organization of the event.

+1

Something to contradict the bad publicity that Sport Bike riders have been getting.

Everything starts out with an idea.:icon_bigg
I think if you got a few motorcycle cops involved,they would be happy to lend some help. I'm sure they are as tired of seeing people killed on bikes as we are.

Heres another one =/

Roethlisberger to be cited
Steelers QB had wrong license, didn't wear helmet

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be cited for failure to wear a helmet and not having a motorcycle license after an accident last week left him with a concussion, broken jaw and nose.

Roethlisberger and the driver of the car he crashed into on June 12 both had the green light, but the driver of the vehicle will be cited for failing to yield, police said Monday.

Only licensed cyclists can ride without a helmet in Pennsylvania.

Roethlisberger was traveling 35 mph in a posted 35 mph zone, said officer Dan Connolly. There were no mechanical problems with either vehicle, he said.

Police Chief Dominic Costa said the woman driving the car had received some threatening phone calls, which police were investigating.
