It’s May 1st and Motorcycle Awareness month is kicked off with a loud Mayday to all drivers on the road! Mayday is used to signal a life-threatening emergency primarily by mariners and aviators, but has been used by others transportation organizations as well. Keeping an extra eye out for a motorcyclist can be a life saver not just in the month of May but all year round. I am full agreement that loud pipes save lives and my Thunderheader usually does the trick!
If you live in a place that is not crowded with traffic be thankful. Living in southern California definitely has its perks and the weather allows for more riding year round. That also brings in more people and that means more traffic to deal with. So I again ask all drivers of caged vehicles to put down the cell phone and pay attention to where you are driving as your concentration may save a life!
