RIDERS 4 RIDERS THOUGHTS ON

NY BIKERS VS SUV

Riders 4 Riders is greatly saddened by the events that occurred in New York involving the sport "bikers" and the family in a SUV. Our thoughts and prayers go out to both families of this tragic event. Incidents such as this highlight exactly what Riders 4 Riders is striving to prevent. Motorcycle safety and riding/driving with respect to all parties on the road is paramount to creating an environment where bikes and cages can co-exist. Events such as the New York incident promulgates the perception of motorcyclist as disreputable "biker gangs" and impedes the education and change in attitude of the public at large. If we want the respect of drivers in cages we need to earn it. This is done from our actions on the road and in the public eye. Please think of this the next time you are involved in an incident where a cage has done something to create an unsafe driving condition. This goes for us "bikers" as well. Drive responsibly, safely and respectfully.

Very respectfully,


Terry Overlock
Sgt-at-Arms
