Fred's Safety Tip of the year

Post by Guest on Sun Jul 10, 2011 9:45 am

When riding in a group, please remember to maintain a 2 second following distance, I just read about a 3 bike/5 car pile up in
kileen Tx cause when one bike rear ended another attempting to exit the freeway they were riding on.

Oh man, I always leave a healthy gap between me and any other vehicle... I'm with Weirdbeard, I'm guessing that didn't end well. Sad

just another reason why I dont like group rides and dont do SxS either ..

A friend in NJ , lost two of his riding budds a couple weeks ago , when they were hit head on by a drunk retired LEO ..

They were going to the viewing of another riding budd , who had just passed away
