Default I've seen it all.



Here's just a short list of distraction problems I've seen while riding here in Arizona.



1. Two teenage guys with one teen girl in a car with the girl having sex with the guy across the front seat with the driver trying to watch them and not the road.



2. A pickup driver making an illegal lane change too busy watching the 18 wheeler she cut off to realize the almost ran over me.



3. Talking on the cell phone, every day.

4. Looking at GPS every other day.

5. Eating

6. Reading a newspaper

7. Putting on makeup

8. Looking for something.

9. etc.

10. etc.

I wasn't. Frankly, the anti-HD posters on this site get old after a while. Makes me wonder what their malfunction is. To paraphrase Will Rogers: "I never met a motorcycle I didn't like."

Yeah, true, another law saying the same thing over as existing laws isn't the answer. Not that that has ever stopped politicians from continuing to pass them.



Our culture basically is an enabler to inattentive driving and it was frustrating to me that even a gesture wasn't made towards the problem.

In Europe, beer rains from the skies and they just open the sunroofs and let the Happy Happy In!
