With gas prices going up every day you will see more and more motorcycles on the roads. We pay our far share of taxes just like a car owner.We on motorcycles have just as much right as a car,truck,suv.

Most of the accidents are caused by a car,suv,truck driver that causes the accident.The biggest issue is all the users on cell phones talking or dialing and not paying attention to where they are driving. Many states have ban the use of cell phones being held in the users hand while driving.

The AAA has always been against the trucking industry as a whole for many years They have always been anti mortorcyclist also. Their biased narrow minded opinion they dont want anyone on the roads but cars. There are probably more motorcyclist deaths due to there being more motorcycles on the road It does not take a rocket scientist to figgure that out. Get them to answer why there are more car deaths than ever before the answer is easy the same as motorcycles but they will not admit that SHOVELHEAD GCB SC
