    Taking the motorcycle rider education course offered through the CHP made me a better, more cautious driver. People, please be aware of your blind spots. Slow down & share the road please!! Your giant SUVs are expensive & it sucks when they get scratched. Well, my Harley cost a lot of pretty pennies & well, my family would miss me too!!

    Escalade drives have small weenies.

    The driver that was involved should not have left but the way motorcyclests drive between lanes is dangerous to all and it is not always the driver of the vehicle that is at fault.

    Many motorcycles have caused me make sudden moves because they come up so suddenly that it startles me. I’ve also seen motorcycles drive on the line for an extended time, I wanted to pass but the driver was taking up both lanes.
