About This Item
IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO-
Too many people are out there who don’t pay attention because they are on their cell phones; texting; eating; reading; putting on make up; fumbling w/ the radio; and basically too self centered to worry about anyone else.
I ride and I can tell you numerous near misses I’ve had but what it boils down to is that I didn’t take enough precaution.
I should have realized that that was a soccer mom in front of me on her cell phone with a bunch of out of control kids in her car that were late for practice.
I should have realized that when I saw her putting on her make up - she would swerve over into my lane so she could look pretty.
I should have realized that the guy behind was paying more attention to his newspaper rather than me stopped in front of him.
I should have realized that the guy next to me was more important than me and needed to pull out in front of me so he could make it home 30 seconds faster.
I should have realized the the lady in the on coming lane couldn’t wait 2 seconds for me to pass so she had to pull out in front of me.
The one thing I have realized is that motorcycle awareness programs are doing a great job preparing me for these people who are more important than me and don’t care about my life. I am glad those people did care about my life. I am glad they have the knowledge and are willing to pass it on. I still have a lot of learning but thanks to them - I am able to ride another day.
You can help us spread the word of motorcycle awareness by releasing a coin of your own!
