The speed cycles make a bad name for motorcyclist. Aggressive driving, stunts, speed weaving in traffic, passing between lanes, etc.

I agree that most motorcycle accidents are caused by other motorists not on motorcycles...there is not enough moyorcycle awareness in NYS....its suppose to be Motorcycle awareness month in May...where was the awareness??...there should be signs posted on highways & byways reminding motorists..also, there is an increased number of motorcycle accidents involving deer...so be on the look out...if you see 1...stop...there are more following!! BE SAFE
