Now Is The Best Time For ???

Got to thinking yesterday. With traffic being down approx 75% now is the best time in the last 40 years to ride a motorcycle. I swore off two wheeled vehicles years ago after getting hit by a car and getting seriously injured. Ironically the injuring vehicle was an ElCamino.
Anyway always loved riding motorcycles. What other activities is this prime time for?

Re: Now Is The Best Time For ???

I was hit from behind while setting at a red light. I was thrown onto the hood, into the windshield then onto the ground. The guy got out of the car and said " I don't have any license and I'm going to jail ". This fellow did not have a license or insurance. After the city cop was finished, (what a joke) the man that hit me was driven away by his girlfriend in the car he hit me with. Luckily I wasn't injured. I ended up with a totaled Harley and a citation for expired registration. I was on my way to DMV to renew my registration when this happened. After the citation I told Barney that I won't need that new registration now. By the way the guy that hit me was fined $325, that was it. I guess you don't need to have license or insurance if you don't have anything to loose.

Re: Now Is The Best Time For ???

My son and I were saying this just the other day. He has a few older bikes, 79 BMW R90, and a 68 BSA 650. Now is the time to go out and enjoy the empty roads.
Just needs to get a bit warmer around here.

Re: Now Is The Best Time For ???

I quit riding, sold both of my motorcycles in 1975, after I had four different cars pull out directly in front of me on a one mile trip home at lunch. I didn't want to end up looking like any ones hood ornament.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Seen some guy riding his motor bike here yesterday , it is early April lots of snow on the ground and ice on the road. Sometimes the bike guys get what they ask for.

Re: Now Is The Best Time For ???

Dave that really sucks what happened to you, around here drivers hit a MC they usually only get a non moving violation "OH I didn't see them" because most aren't looking or don't care, I've been or was riding since 1975, it's crazy to ride in this city anymore, my wife when we started dating said why are you always looking around for girls? I told her I was looking for the azzhole that was going to run us over! now with a screwed up neck & back my 2 Harleys just sit at my shop, although the thought of going for a ride with this little of traffic is really tempting ??? Wife says it's best time for YARD work YUK but been doing it for her with a smile on my face

Perfect timing. I was just cruzing CL to see what people are offloading now that they are out of work, and I found a sweet Vulcan and a few Harleys at a decent price.
