Harsh! But oh, so true.
....When I can, I use the Interstate rather than city streets because the Interstate is clearly a safer environment for motorcycles (I never quite understood why many motorcyclists hesitate to use the Interstates where there is no cross traffic, no parked cars for doors to open in front of you, less chance of animals, kids or other things to suddenly be in your path, plus the fun of high speed riding).
Another big problem is all these cars that have touch screens on the dash.
With the older cars, you could feel for the radio controls, or the heater controls.
With the damned touch screens, you HAVE TO take your eyes off of the road to use them.
Worst idea ever!!!
