    I see it all the time…..car/truck drivers are always reminded to watcfh for motorcycles but 9 times out of 10 the motorcycle drivers are speeding and weaving between cars and are the one’s breaking the law…no…i think they should watch out for the cars.

    Check your facts Tom, before you start spewing. 2/3 of Motorcycle vs. Automobile accidents are caused by the drivers of the Automobile.
