Motorcycles and SPRING

It feels like Spring is here in Wisconsin as I write this on April 3rd. Spring in Wisconsin is represented by Daffodils, Robins, Greening of the grass, and MOTORCYCLES.

Some guys drive their cycles like they are on a Lemans Road Course, weaving in an out of traffic and seeing how fast they can go. But the majority are responsible drivers either trying to get to work or enjoy a beautiful day on the bike.

Often the challenge for us driving in our cars is to WATCH for those bikes. 70% of all Motorcycle accidents happen at intersections and a high percentage of those are caused by drivers in their cars NOT SEEING the motorcycist.

Remember - enjoy Spring and watch for those BIKES.
