On a Serious Note

I know I have posted before on subjects that may or may not have been humorous in the past. However, this is not one of them. I generally will bounce around the other forums I am a member of chiming in where I can relate to the subjects at hand. While at VROC this morning, I found this link posted. My wife and teenage son will definitely be viewing this video.

Everybody, ride safe. Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up.

A morbid reminder but a needed one. I look at it this way: taking this risk is never worth the price of failure. I simply don't take the risk - ever.

Thanks for the link. I just emailed it to just about everyone on my list, and posted it to a local bikers forum too. IMHO this should be shown to every high school student and every newly licenced driver.
