    TAKING CHANCES ,can have devastating results.

    We are not made of steel.

    I was wondering who we can blame next.

    let’s put the blame on every one, there by leaving no one out .

    I taught my niece how to ride a motor cycle . I was very strict with her as you can not half ride a bike.

    The mystery of the motorcycle is that it is an unstable platform.

    Bermuda is not the only place that has bike colisions, as 10 colisions just took place while i write this.

    Why !

    Because not every one is has the foresight to anticipaste the alrernatives.

    Some don’t pay attention to the ……………………………. WHAT IF !

    YOU CAN BE”"”"”"” DEAD’”"”"”"”" RIGHT.

    Why ! That is because we all have to take responsibility for the way we conduct out selved on the public highway.

    Giving right of way” when posible” is your gift to the other drivers, be the nice guy !

    Every motorcycle is different in some small way , it takes time to get used to the bike and the bike get used to you, by taking an 8 hour or more ride on a new motorcycle as practice makes perfect, especially in the corners .

    EVERY CORNER IS DIFFERENT.

    THERE ARE NO TWO CORNERS ALIKE.

    WET ROADS CHANGES EVERY THING.

    USE HORN DURING THE DAY.

    FLASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT. Because at night some can not tell where the sounds is coming from.

    How many know how to COUNTER STEER a motorcycle ?
