How about educating the cagers? Australia has an ad out "what will it take for you to notice us", depicting motorcyclists riding nude. And the cell phone use makes it way worse. I saw a guy making a turn at a busy intersection WHILE DIALING his cell phone.

We can practice all day long, but drivers need to learn to watch for objects smaller than a Hummer.

Helmets and more licences don;t make better riders, expirence does.

Unfortunatly for many out there Expirence is not somthing you get until just after you needed it.

Don;t confuse a governing organization's desire to require more licences or laws as anything but a way to make more money by writing more tickets and making higher fees. Having either one of them won;t make you a better rider...only you can do that. Big Bro can;t do it for you or the next guy.

Do you fail to see how a graduated license could GIVE you more experience without exposing you to psycho-fast bikes first?
