Re: Don't know if you've seen this...
Made the rounds through the rocket ranch last week in an email about driving while on a cell phone, even got sent out as a safety message about distracted driving. Of course....within a few minutes we had someone check snopes and send out the predictable "it's the motorcycle guys fault, he was speeding" reply to all. Then he tried to imply that bikes stop and turn faster than cars so if he wasn't hauling ass he'd have had time to miss the car that pulled out. Because, you know, bikes are "hard to see". My subsequent response (to all) has a couple people looking at me differently now.
I mean of course it's the bikers fault. Let's just ignore the point of the email and go on secure with the thought that talking on the cell phone, texting and eating your morning cereal are all acceptable activities while you're in charge of a two ton chunk of steel. It's ok, us bikers will get out of the way. I made an offer, to give anyone who wanted a ride through traffic on the back of my Triumph, so they could see what it's like dealing with distracted drivers first hand. I had no takers...
