Neale Bayly Rides: The Threads of Life’s Tapestry

“Of course, when the Russians kidnapped me, they held me at gun point for 36 hours, but I’ve got to go…” as the phone line went silent.

Distracted Riding

If we as motorcyclists rant and rave about drivers who are distracted by their phones, or fiddling with their sophisticated in-car infotainment systems, and who put our lives in danger every time we ride, we can’t be doing the same things while piloting our own motorcycles.  We’ve got to be totally focused on the road and our surroundings in order to stay as safe as possible.  We can’t decry driver’s behavior, but think that it’s okay for us to recklessly behave the same way.
