mwuhahah first post



anyways, yeah great idea, but i doubt anybody will actually pay attention, and the people who should actually read the article because they pay the least attention driving, will also pay the least attention to the article.

They did the same thing in BC for years. I don't think it helped there either. The bikers really appreciated it though. For some reason they stopped the practice last year.

During the Laconia Bike Week, Massachusetts had messages "look for Motorcycles when changing lanes" on the highways. They were on the new daily information signs. A great message that hopefully reminded the cagers that they share the roads.

Great program! This is the type of thing the AMA should be promoting. i.e. have AMA reps present this stuff at Drivers Education classes in high schools. kudos to Ohio...

And the parents would be ecstatic about having a pro-bike group talk to thier 'impressionable darlings'.



Not going to happen where I grew up, that's certain.

Why? So they can hit us directly instead of just dealing glancing blows?
