This weekend I'll enjoy the 60˚ temps by dusting off the bike and rolling it out of the garage after a long winter. Please look out for me and other bikers, as I will for you on my bike and in my car. Minnesotans need to have each other's backs.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 5,000 motorcyclists are killed every year. While some of these accidents are single vehicle accidents, many involve automobiles.

From Driving-Tests.org: Remember that there is no such thing as a fender-bender for a motorcycle rider. They are completely exposed. Most multi-vehicle accidents involving motorcycles cause serious or fatal injuries to the riders.

Thanks for being safe!
