We’ll probably see a big increase in the number of guys on motorcycles this spring. With the price of gasoline soaring, this gives every middle aged crisis guy the perfect excuse to buy a motorcycle using the excuse of great gas mileage.
There are a lot of guys that ride the Japanese made bikes that tear through my neighborhood on Saturdays and Sundays. Those guys are the dummies who ride with sandals instead of good leather boots, and ride shirtless instead of a leather jacket or vest. They ride too fast for the road conditions, dart in between cars, burn rubber at stop signs, and eventually get hurt because they are reckless and stupid.
These idiots are the reason we have helmet laws. The serious bikers know to protect themselves and how to handle a motorcycle. But the idiots don’t even have enough sense to wear a helmet unless we force them to do it.
