Motorcycle riding in Southern California… It’s fun. It’s thrilling. And it’s — dangerous. That’s right. While many motorcyclists don’t want to hear it, the fact of the matter is that regardless of where you are riding (whether it is a windy canyon road or crowded freeway), you can be putting your life on the line. Unfortunately, many drivers are not cognizant and/or simply do not care about the health and safety of motorcyclists, so making room for you is not high on their priority list.
