Same here. Somehow a lot of my unreads got lost in the shuffle.

It's been posted here since 6-26-09 and I just found it today too. I just went through all of my unreads, and boy was it A LOT! And I've found some very interesting things such as this post. I'm glad it's here.

How did I miss this post? :? kikidawn, thanks for posting that info! Bikers here do that, and it's refreshing. There are so many good things they do and don't get the credit for it. My boyfriend and I ride his Harley all the time. It scares me to know that people almost always don't see us on the road but it's a risk you take each time you get on that bike. Around here there are so many bikers people are better than the more populated places. I'm still not totally relaxed while riding though. :shrug:

Bicylists know how to take someone who's capable of going for a ride everywhere he or she goes.

Thanks for posting this. My #1 rule when biking is NEVER trust anyone else on the road. Assume that they don't see you; ride like you're invisible -- you probably are.

I am so glad that you like this video kikidawn! I am trying to think of everyone who gets discriminated against. One of my very old friends from high school's dad was killed because someone was not watching where she was going. It was not his fault and if people were more careful, then tragedies like this would be lowered, if not prevented.

:hugs: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! My parents have a Harley and enjoy the freedom and spontaneity that go along with having a bike. They also love to plan long road trips and enjoy the scenery. They are always extremely safe and cautious. As a result of them being on a bike on the road I am super cautious around bikers. I always try to be a cautious driver, but the bikers get a 1 up in my book - I am extra careful around them - just like I want everyone else to be around my parents. I despise the stereotypes that go along with being a biker. If you were to meet my parents on any day of the week you would not even think for a second they are bikers - according to the stereotypes. They have a lot of friends that ride - ones that look the stereotype and ones that don't. Bikers are not bad people! My parents and their friends are part of two different groups and ride for those causes - The Patriot Guard Riders - they ride in the funeral procession for fallen soldiers and vets. The PGR give their time and money to honor those who fight for us. Their mission statement:
The Patriot Guard Riders is a diverse amalgamation of riders from across the nation. We have one thing in common besides motorcycles. We have an unwavering respect for those who risk their very lives for America’s freedom and security. If you share this respect, please join us. We don’t care what you ride or if you ride, what your political views are, or whether you’re a hawk or a dove. It is not a requirement that you be a veteran. It doesn't matter where you’re from or what your income is; you don’t even have to ride. The only prerequisite is Respect. Our main mission is to attend the funeral services of fallen American heroes as invited guests of the family. Each mission we undertake has two basic objectives: 1. Show our sincere respect for our fallen heroes, their families, and their communities. 2. Shield the mourning family and their friends from interruptions created by any protestor or group of protestors. We accomplish the latter through strictly legal and non-violent means. To those of you who are currently serving and fighting for the freedoms of others, at home and abroad, please know that we are backing you. We honor and support you with every mission we carry out, and we are praying for a safe return home for all. - Bikers Against Child Abuse - BACA is an amazing international organization. One that my parents joined because of a personal experience. The group 'adopts' the child who has been abused into their family/group and helps to protect the child. They will be there at a phone call to help the child in any time of need. They will accompany the child to anywhere for anything just to give the child that extra protection. They work with the court system to provide an escort for the child if the child has to testify and needs the extra support. Here is their mission statement:
"Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle." I realize that this was an extremely long post, it is just something I carry close to my heart. Thanks for taking the time to read it :)
