I agree, more bikes on the road means more visibility for all of us, plus after the second or third time the newbies get the crap scared out of them there'll be a good supply of used cruisers and sportbikes to pick from. The problem with that is the bikes I like aren't the ones newbies are buying so it does me no good I guess. And every inexperianced or incompetent motorcyclist that gets creamed on the 6 o"clock news is bad advertising for us as well.



I think training and education are even more important when you have an increase of bikes, not just for riders themselves, but emphesis on motorcycle awarrness for car drivers as well.

Hmmm. I'm a Gen Y-er with a VFR and an Odwalla fruit drink.



Luckily, I'm too self-absorbed to care how cliche I am.
