Yep. As the weather gets warmer they get stupider. Look for the crash/fatality rate to increase.

i dont see what the problem is with squids on the road as long as they dont ruin anyones day except their own when at fault
dont want to see any more accidents and injuries but its going to happen and all we can do is express the need to play safe and wear protection

What have you done for a "squid" lately? If you are not a part of the solution, well...then you must be a part of the problem.

On Saturday morning I saw a guy disguised as a track guy showing his true colors. I'm assuming heading to MSRH.

Leaving PP2 with full one peice leathers with the lid strapped to the side of the bike. I was going by pretty fast but looked to be a black CBR or R6.
