    I would like to urge everyone reading this to take their time on the roads. Don’t be in such a hurry to meet your maker as we will all meet him one day. Think about your loved ones who will mourn your loss – your young kids who need you and you will NOT‎ see grow up, your parents, friends, coworkers and neighbours. Is it really worth it to overtake that vehicle when you can CLEARLY see another vehicle coming. Think about that innocent person who is now scarred emotionally by your body slamming against their vehicle. Or even worse – Think about if you take someone else through YOUR recklessness and you survive. Think about the EMTs who now need to scrape YOUR body off the road and the doctors and nurses who will try their best to revive YOU. Think about the  ‎person who has to now call YOUR family member and tell them the sad news. So now THINK is it really, really worth it?!

      I just can’t comprehend the things I see drivers (mostly bikers) doing on the roads. I just don’t understand why they are playing Russian Roulette with their lives. It’s sad to see all the carelessness. And to everyone out there, please use your turn signals, it is nothing but selfish to not do so. It is literally a little click up or down.

    John Boy.

    Never give up J.B.

    J.B. it takes years to become a competent driver!

    All it takes is for the pillion pasenger to turn their head or lean the wrong way to throw the bike out of balance .

    Pillion passenger should look in the same direction as the driver to keep the bike stable.

    Squirming around on the rear seat or leaninh the opposite way can also cause the bike to become unstable.

    The driver should look in the same direction as their intended path.

    That is to say while riding / driving ” WHERE YOU LOOK YOU WILL GO”.

    That also applies to car drivers.

    There is more to safe riding, there is always more, EG: increasing tire pressure when towing, a flat rear tire with the aditional weight can cause stability problems.

    Take care of your vehicle and it will take care of you.

    Riding a bike is not a Circus act.

    I know my stuf dont you think ?

    I have only been riding bikes for 65 years !

    Alow me to make this comment The Bermuda road conditions are not good.

    How about waiting 30 minutes for the car to dry off the road after it rains, that works !

    May be the problem out there has some to do with self estem or personal insecurities tainted with anger.
