With Warmer Weather Approaching, Time to Review Street Riding Safety

Nice article for those of us (ME) that need constant refocusing.

Has videos for specific demonstrations.

Although they didn't address, 'Learn how to wheelie correctly'. I see a lot of videos on instagram of wheelies gone wrong where the guy crashes.

Good article. I know the writer pretty well... worked with him on some ideas for MotoAmerica that never materialized. He's a good guy and an avid rider.

I saw this a while back as well. They used my video for number 4!

I saw number 5 happen to a guy right next to me the other day.

Luckily the car finally slammed on the brakes at the last moment. So they only tapped the back of the bike, and caused him to drop it as he stepped off to the side of it.

The "You Riding Buddies are Idiots" put a smile on my face. Great video too.
