Be a Clown

A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
"Daddy, what happened to him?" the son asked.
"He died and went to Heaven," the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said,
"Did God throw him back down?"
10 Habits of a Good Rider
Riding safely is mostly a matter of knowledge and attitude, and riding safely doesn’t have to be boring. In fact, practicing safe techniques could add years of fun to your life.
Simply put, here are 10 habits to practice that will help keep you safe and make riding more enjoyable.
- Be ready: mind, body, and bike.
- Be smooth.
- Know where you are.
- Use your head (to look where you’re going.)
- When your line of sight or path of travel becomes restricted, reduce your speed and use great care.
- Before proceeding through any intersection, check left, check front, check right, then check left again.
- Whenever you slow, first check your rearview mirror.
- Keep a 2-4 second following distance.
- Ride with a great attitude.
