Motorcycles out in force

family, milwaukee, MPD, safety

This past weekend the motorcycles were out in force. I must have counted over 100 riders this past weekend enjoying themselves on our highways.

Being a former Motorcycle Sergeant with the Milwaukee Police Department, I cannot tell you how many thousands of miles I logged on each season. Nor, can I tell you the number of times some knucklehead turned into my lane or pulled out in front of me because in their words "I didn't see you." Because of my training and experience I was fortunate, I was able to take the proper evasive action to avoid a collision.

I urge everyone to keep an eye out for the motorcycle riders. They are harder to see than motor vehicles.

For you new motorcycle riders I urge you to take a safe rider course. It could save your life. The proper training can make your ride safer.

For you experienced riders I urge you to take a refresher course or an advanced rider course. The time spent is priceless ... so are our lives.

O'yea - successful completion of these classes can save you up to 10% on your annual insurance. That savings can buy you a few bucks and you can use it to off set the high cost of fuel.

For more information on safe rider courses click on this link. You can sign up for classes on line. This school is, in my personal opinion, the best in the State of Wisconsin.

Don't delay, call or sign up today!
