Today I enjoyed the 60˚ temp 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.
Today I saw the cleanup of what looked like a car vs. motorcycle accident at the intersection of Veteran's Drive & 9th Avenue North in St. Cloud. It's a reminder that it's time to start looking for motorcycles on the road again. None of us want to be part of what I saw today.
The 3rd annual Cruising' for Critters Motorcycle & Classic Car Run is coming up on Saturday, August 22nd -- benefitting Central Minnesota Animal Care & Control. Sign up now to take part in the run, get a shirt, enjoy the post-run dinner, and take part in the silent auction.
In the past nine days alone, five motorcycle riders have been killed on Minnesota roads. Spring is always a dangerous time as drivers have become unaccustomed to seeing riders over the winter. Do the riders play a part in their own safety? No doubt, but please be aware of the impact you can have as a car or truck driver.
