Default Positive PR

Somerset in the UK is running a pro-motorcyclist campaign featuring local riders. It's called "When will you need a biker?" They're profiling nurses, firemen, and other professionals in the community who ride.

'When will you need a biker...?' campaign - Motorcycle news : General news - Visordown

“Research for the Department for Transport has shown that road users who personally know bikers – as friends, relatives, or work colleagues for example, are much more likely to be respectful and watching out for motorcyclists in general."

Obviously this would never work with the MO crew....
318 curves in 11 miles."

My Mother-In-Law tells me all the time about how she looks-out for bikers. My Mother? I'm not certain she even notices those "evil killing-machines" are on the same road with her.

(yes, I just said I'm more-likely to be run-down by my own Mother than my Wife's Mother)
