Bike Week 2007
Zoom, Zoom! They're here again! I don't mind the bikers. I try to stay out of their way and they in turn are ok. Of course one of the things that bikers do is hit the beer joints. OK, I just stay away from their haunts when possible.
Unfortunately the deaths have started. One, was kind of reverse. A teen ager who was so drunk she couldn't walk, turned in front of 2 bikers, I guess and they hit her and where killed. She apparently hit and ran and one other biker took after her and followed her home where she apparently hit some cars at home. I believe she also ran over one in her escape.
I hope they do enjoy their time though and this is an isolated horrible happening. It's rare to see one biker alone and rather they travel in groups and meet others at events. It must be a fun time for them. I especially love the way they line up their motors like an ad for a motorcycle dealership. They pride themselves on having a shiny bike. LOL! and all of them must eye-ball all the bikes where they are. I haven't been checking helmets though but it does seem as though there are some with the good sense to know that there is protection and that is more important than the wind in your hair. In fact, have seen many beards. Perhaps the wind going through a beard has the same effect.
