I drive DEFENSIVELY compared to the offensive passer or the one that pulls out in front of 18 wheels....I look EVERYWHERE. But the fact that everyone has to look out for motorcycles, I believe is a given. Haven't heard too much talk about the biker lately that created an accident though? Accidents are horrible and EVERYONE should LOOK OUT for each other! ANd btw, I'm sure I've been called worse, by better! LOL!

 Share the road! Look twice save a life. Not only for motorcyclists but for everyone else on the roads. My thoughts and prayers are going out for both family's.
