Sort of a safety tip for all riders.
Long week-ends are big times for all working people so basically we all know said long week-ends are from Sunday to & including Monday.
Still so many start the long week-end a bit longer meaning Friday. Probably the worst of all is Labour Day or this one on September lst for so many start to hord the streets & hwys till sometime in Tuesday.
IF(?) you feel you can stick around at home & not be on the hwys & road then you have created a safer way of surviving.
I noted to-day that even on this Thursday the roads & hwys were crowded & on roads I should be trotting along at a good pace were crawling ones due to traffic. So obviously I will be at home all Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday & might even have to include Tuesday.
Take it from an old sod that has been riding for 59 yrs. True such long week-ends were when I would be at some race event to compete & would travel there a day before the long-week-end & come back a day AFTER the the long week-end AND in these cases I would be driving a cage hauling a m/c trailer with basically two comp irons SO my chances of being wiped out by a crazy when on my m/c were basically nil.
