I always get super bummed when I hear about a motorcycle crash and it really hits home when it's someone I know and like. Joey got was hit by a car running a red light while out on his chopper in Daytona a few days ago. His leg got busted up pretty good and he spent hours in surgery and from all accounts he is doing ok :) but unfortunately his bike is fucked :(
Bike week is right around the corner and I just want to remind everyone to be careful on your motorcycles. Slow down when going through intersections, don't assume that the car next to, in front or behind you can see you, make sure your bike is safe to ride, and of course don't get drunk and pretend you are superman on a chopper. If you don't ride a motorcycle and prefer 4 wheels then CHECK TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLES before changing lanes and give them plenty of space on the road! There are so many accidents due to drivers simply not paying attention, texting, talking on the cell phone, ect.......So be careful out there!!!
