Here in Colorado, it seems that 90% of riders are purely recreational riders, meaning they only ride on good days. Well, the last couple of weeks has seen temps in the 60ís, so Iím seeing more riders every day to/from work. Please, if you ride, ATGATT.
Aside from it being a killer to see all these riders (Iím no longer riding due to my argument with Rudolph), Iím absolutely horrified at the lack of gear on many of the riders. Maybe Iím slightly paranoid due to what happened to me, but, ATGATT saved my life.
Folks, when riding, take it from me, ATGATT is the way to go. Itís money well spent, could save your life, oh, and is a damn sight cheaper than having to pay foe extra medical bills. Putting that into perspective, insurance paid out around $400,000 for my various medical bills; Iíd hate to think what road rash wouldíve added to that!
Ok, Iíve said my piece and Iíll now get off my soapbox. With what Iíve been thru I just had to say something, so thanks for reading.
Have a great riding season, ride safe, and ATGATT.
