100WFC: Third Date by JJ Spain

Third Date by JJ Spainillustration by Wayfarer He introduced Mary to her first motorcycle ride. He pulled alongside a Ford Focus using the right turning lane. At the last second, the Ford also decided to turn right. The car’s front fender gave the cycle an extra boost off the two-lane, crashing through a picket fence. Able to slide to a stop still upright, he sighed. His left knee put a dent in the black tank. His date was scared and crying. The bastard driver of the car didn’t stop. They rode to her house to ice his knee. Two years later, he took a knee and she said, “Yes.” (publication dated 16-Apr-2024) GET THE RIGHT RIDING GEAR FOR YOUR GAL — GET TO 5-Ball Racing Garage — click to launch.

His Harley-Davidson® Factory Racing teammate, James Rispoli, is third in points after hard-fought fourth and third place finishes. The MotoAmerica Mission King of the Baggers series appeared as part of the MotoGP™ Grand Prix of the Americas weekend on the challenging 3.4-mile, 20-turn Circuit of the Americas road course, adding a uniquely American flavor to the event and making many new fans.

Electric Car Prison

Will electric cars lead you to incarceration? Find out….. An article by Dave Arthurwith illustration by Wayfarer The other day I was talking to someone who was thinking of buying an electric car. I told him he should first get to know a good bail bondsman and a lawyer. I told him that I am serious about this. You buy an electric car, you think you are helping the environment. You completely ignore the pollution caused from pit mining in order to get the materials to make the batteries. You also ignore the problems of disposing of these batteries in landfills or wherever once they are used up. Maybe you buy the electric car cause you want to save money by not buying gasoline. You ignore the fact that it still costs plenty of money to charge the batteries in these cars. Electricity is far from free. You also ignore the initial cost of these cars which is one third or more higher than a comparable gasoline powered mode. Maybe you think if you’re not buying gas you will soon recoup the difference. You weren’t too good at math. It might take eight or nine years to recoup that money in gas savings, but by then the car-battery will be no good anymore and you will need a new car. What about disposing the old one? So what does all that have to do with going to prison because you bought an electric car. CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT AND READ THIS ARTICLE ONLY ON

Bill to Boost Outdoor Recreation Economy

U.S. House Schedules Vote on Bill to Boost Outdoor Recreation Economy Click here to send a letter to your U.S. House member asking them to support the EXPLORE Act. The U.S. House of Representatives is scheduled to vote next week on the SEMA-supported bill H.R. 6492, the “Expanding Public Lands Outdoor Recreation Experiences Act” (EXPLORE Act). The comprehensive public lands bill directs the U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to create more motorized opportunities on public lands, addresses special recreation permits and fees that have been expensive and cumbersome for off-road groups to navigate on federal lands, attempts to improve visitor experiences, addresses the lack of affordable housing causing staffing shortages on public lands, and transforms outdoor recreation experiences for active-duty military members, veterans and Gold Star families. Your lawmakers need to hear from you now about why the bipartisan EXPLORE Act matters to you! Ask your U.S. Representative to support the bill.

NHTSA 2022 Crash Statistics

2022 Crash StatisticsNHTSA Report Mixed News For Bikers This week, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released its final 2022 Fatality Analysis Reporting System traffic crash data. NHTSA reported 42,514 total fatalities in the U.S. in 2022. That is a 1.7% decrease from the previous year. However, the final numbers show mixed results for motorcyclists. Sadly, overall rider deaths on our nation’s roadways increased by 1.2%. The official number of motorcyclists killed in 2022 was 6,218, an increase of 75 deaths compared to 2021. Biker deaths now account for 15% of all fatalities on the road, up 1% from 2021. Large truck, bus and pedestrian deaths also saw increases, while passenger car occupants saw a decrease. The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) remains concerned that these numbers may justify lawmakers taking a closer look at motorcyclists and our place in the transportation network. We surely do not need to be singled out for further scrutiny and have our freedoms limited. Fortunately, the final number of motorcyclists injured dropped by 2.6% in 2022. Two years ago, there were 82,687 biker injuries in crashes, down 2,211 from 84,898 the previous year. While every crash is unique, there are some disturbing trends. Alcohol-impaired fatal crashes account for 29% of all motorcyclist deaths. Across the nation, 7.8% of fatal crashes involved a “distracted driver.” Personal responsibility is a core value of the MRF. We must ensure we are all making the right decisions to protect ourselves and others on the road. If we don’t, who will? 2022 Crash Stats — Read 2022 NHTSA Report by Clicking Here Join The MRF —
