If riding a motorcycle is on your bucket list, you are not alone. According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, motorcycle purchases and registration are increasing. Motorcycles are attractive since they are fun to ride and cheaper on gas.
Many of the accidents that happen every day are due to people being distracted or negligent. No driver should have to be reminded they assume responsibility for their own safety, as well as their passengers' and others on the road. Too many, though, think it is themselves against the world out there. And too many bikers and pedestrians think they are protected by laws. Even if they are in some cases, it pays to remember the graveyard is full of people who had the right of way.
