IS it true? The people we live with, the schools, the drivers ed teacher, everyone teaches us to look right then left for another car, truck and NEVER says look for MOTORCYCLES! Our brains are trained to look for vehicles and trains at the train crossings, never triained to look for MOTORCYCLES.....To train your brain and it does not take to long...at a stop sign or stop light or exiting any parking lot say out loud or to yourself in a whisper, but say this....LOOK FOR MOTORCYCLES, and vehicles first, before going thru your intersection or out of a parking lot, EVEN YOUR OWN driveway...say it out loud. It took me 2 weeks to get the real feel of looking for motorcycles, it took my younger sister a bit over a month to learn to look for motorcycles. TRY IT AND SAVE A RIDER OR TWO IN THEIR LIFETIME.
