We here so much about cars not looking out for bikes. Today it was the other way around. In the car with the woman out doing some shopping. A bagger pulls right out in front of me! I hit the horn and the brakes at the same time hoping he would get moving before I could stop. 10 more feet and he would have been hurting. I was locked up and sliding. I still don't think he even turned around and looked!

Everybody always blames the cars, but there are plenty of times I see MC riders do some really stupid things.

I almost pulled out in front of a Cadillac as I entered the Blue Ridge Pkwy today.

I almost T Bones a Fire Truck one day, full lights and Sirens going. I turned The Ipod down after that.

I don't often hear the fire truck until its horns are blasting in the intersection

I love to rock, but I don't listen to anything while on my Rod. I'd really like to hear whats going on around me.

LOVE MUSIC (make me go faster ) but I think hearing is a crucial component of riding... And it's proven to hinder balance (equilibrium).

So I keep the cd's for the car or home...

That is why it is illegal in CA to have music going into both ears while on your scoot.

I cant lie and say I've never done something stupid on the bike or just not been paying attention and almost caused a problem. But I just tell myself its ok and its just our way of dishing out what we take.

Stupidest thing I ever did.

I crossed a double yellow to pass a slow moving Surburban on a straight flat road at 60mph. There was nobody coming in the other direction and I had a clear view, so I though I was cool. Little did I know that there was a small pickup in front of the 'burb about to make a left turn onto an unmarked dirt road.

damn near died that day.
