A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD


For me, day three of Daytona's Bike Week was fantastic.

The weather was warm and the riding exhilarating.

But not so for others.

Crashes killed four motorcyclists who were not wearing helmets. Another woman is in critical condition after she went the wrong way on a one-way street and mowed down a couple more.

None were wearing helmets. Alcohol also may have been a factor.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

On a motorcycle, you have to ride smart. There's little room to live and learn.

Helmets save lives! Too bad there's no helmet law in Fla. Glad to see you're wearing yours anyway.

Safe trip Diana! It's going to snow here in Jersey on Wedneday.
Be careful.

seems a driver (in a car) sideswiped a couple of motorcyclists, too. Come on, more people get killed in cars than on bikes.

There is no helmet law in Florida. Those on The Transplant list recive an organ quicker because of this. And the organs are checked carefully before they are given to a recipient. This all ties in to the blog of organ donation a few weeks ago.
