Default Motorcycle Season Has Begun.. Keep you eyes on the road!!

Goes without saying, and hopefully most the guys in here actually pay attention while driving..
But there was just a pretty bad accident less than a mile from my house.
Looked like 2 bikes vs a car.

Me too...Sold the Goldwing 2 years ago...Im done street riding...Enjoying the new Can Am instead...

Waaaaay too many drunk drivers here in Wisconsin, and punkass kids playing with their phones...

JANESVILLE (WIFR) -- A traffic stop leads to a man's 11th arrest for drunk driving.
Janesville Police say 48 year old Bradley Skelly was pulled over near W. Court Street and Center Avenue around midnight Friday for speeding. The officer could smell alcohol from inside the car. Skelly was given a field sobriety test which he failed.
Police say Skelly was also driving with a child in the car. This is the 7th time Skelly has been arrested for OWI with a passenger under the age of 16.
Skelly was also charged for driving with no insurance. Despite having 10 prior OWI arrests, Skelly was driving with a valid Wisconsin license.

Not here it's the worst time of year too cold to ride not enough snow to ride.

I rode a scooter right into the middle of downtown on a 50cc scooter during rush hour for year. Now that's one dangerous ride fun as hell but holy man your taking your life in your hands lol. The 1300 honda feels like your safe as hell !

I agree trying to always be wary of distracted driver's takes the fun out of riding. My 2010 Roadglide only has 3,200 miles. And will be for sale. My Kawasaki is all I need and slowly being spiffed up.
