I've been asked by cagers why I pull up next to the cage in front of me or inbetween. Because of what happened to you r. We hear about it a lot around here where celling while driving or some other activity is more important thaen paying attention. So what happen or will happen to your bumper buddy?

cagers on cell phones scare me

Man, I'm glad to hear you're alright. the bike can be replaced or fixed.

I haven't ridden in 5 weeks but it's due to my health, not my bike. Gonna try to ride Wednesday for a KIA being flown home from the sandbox.

Never are safe in my opinion, I try to position myself so that I can zip up in between the vehicles in front of me if the need ever arises.
