Motorcycles are often difficult to see. Their size in comparison to a car often places them at risk.
El Paso doesn't possess a lot of skilled drivers either.

Enjoy riding, cadman311.

i feel bad for the bikes. its not their fault that the dumb 21 yr old kid that weighs 140lbs doesnt have the strength or the knowledge on how to control a bike that can go 0 to 60 in less than 3 secs and tops out above 180mph and can carve corners as if it were on rails....(when in capable hands.) i figure if these morons kill themselves, oh well, thats one less idiot walking around with their cap pointing off to the side. but when they start killing their passengers or bystanders, it quickly becomes another story. sure, anyone that gets on a bike as a passenger has to realizes that they are putting their life in the hands of the person that is controlling that bike. but that doesnt give the person controlling the bike the right to ride like an idiot on public roads in the hopes of getting laid later that night. yes, i do own a bike, 3 of them to be exact. two ricers and a harley. difference is i am smart enough to ride even more safely when i do have a passenger with me. i never ever want to be in a situation where i have to explain to some 20 yr old girls mother and father why i thought it was ok for me to kill their daughter.

To the cool bikers who don't wear helmets.

Real smart - choosing to disregard your ONLY chance for survival in your upcoming "accident". I use parentheses because as all great motorcycle riders know, people in cars intentionally run over bikes.

You're Cool - You're Dead - I'm laughing in a strange sick way.

um...those little symbols you used are called quotation marks.
Parentheses look like this...()

When you were dropped on your head as a baby, were YOU wearing a helmet?

-ya well my friend drove faster and nothing ever happened to them until today when they died. No offense to you...but be safe because it is those you leave behind that will suffer the most. My friend left an 8 month year old little boy....just something to think about.
