    HOLY COW!! Is this level of accidents/fatalities common on large rallies or is this a bad year? Please, everybody ride and be safe.

    My stats are no scientific I just listen to the reports from Bright House and keep the numbers in my head. I think there was Ocala, Brevard, Ormond, Daytona. Last years total was like 7 but they did not include out of area counties.

    Since I have coming or doing Bike Week (63) was my last move into FL the usual number is 3 to 5.…BW encompasses so many different counties and the media does a sucky job of reporting them. They probably miss half of them.

    Default Have you ever ridden to Sturgis

    There are always a couple on the way to Sturgis. Some bike riders don't mix well with cars. Some care riders don't mix well bikes. Seen and been in a few close calls, and it always seems to happen the closer you get to the event. IMHO

    One of these days I have to make it to a Spyder event....
