Ride aware all the time! Just this morning I almost met a Dodge Neon head on. The cell phone wielding bimbette at the controls never saw me coming as she cut the corner well into my lane. Hard braking and horn application on my side and we missed by inches. Was I wearing a helmet and leathers? Well, no, you see I was in my Ford F150 pickup at the time with headlights on. If that vehicle didn’t intrude into her consciousness, you can bet a motorcycle wouldn’t either. A recent study confirms what we all suspected. Cell phones are a greater impairment to driving than being drunk. So now, we are not only invisible to the majority of drivers, most of them are driving impaired, and it’s perfectly legal! Stay alert!
