May Is Biker Awareness Month, however we should be aware of biker and motorcycle safety every month of the year. I received this from a friend in an email and I thought I'd share it with my customers and website visitors. May is officially Biker Awareness Month, however, every day should be Biker Awareness Day as motorcycles are all around us. Please be aware and be careful when driving. If you are in your car and you should be in an accident, you are hopefully wearing your seatbelt. You have an entire car surrounding you and with your seatbelt on you have a pretty good chance of surviving. A motorcyclist has no seatbelt, if you cut a motorcycle off, and he has to slam on his breaks, he is very likely to go flying off his bike and very well may be killed on impact, he or she may be ok, but could then be hit by another car running over him.

Please be aware of your surroundings at all times and think about the person who is riding their motorcycle on the highway or roads in your local area. Save someones life by simply being careful, be aware of who else is on the road besides yourself, and take precautions. SAVE A LIFE!

I saw you hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store line.
But you didn't see me put an extra $10.00 in the collection plate last Sunday.

I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk.
But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local mall.

I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant.
But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more money for the hurricane relief.

I saw you, roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.
But you didn't see me driving behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.

I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children.
But you didn't see me when I took time off from work to run toys to the homeless.

I saw you stare at my long hair.
But you didn't see me and my friends cut ten inches off for Locks of Love.

I saw you roll your eyes at our leather coats and gloves.
But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old coats and gloves to those that had none.

I saw you look in fright at my tattoos.
But you didn't see me cry as my children were born and have their name written over and in my heart.

I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
But you didn't see me going home to be with my family.

I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be.
But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.

I saw you yelling at your kids in the car.
But, you didn't see me, pat my child's hands knowing he was safe behind me.

I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road.
But you didn't see me squeeze my wife's leg when she told me to take the next turn.

I saw you race down the road in the rain.
But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.

I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.
But you didn't see me trying to turn right.

I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in.
But you didn't see me leave the road.

I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
But you didn't see me.
I wasn't there.

I saw you go home to your family.
But you didn't see me.
Because I died that day you cut me off.

I was just a biker,.....
A person with friends and a family.
But you didn't see me.
