  • You misspelled “seperate” in the first paragraph. Do you folks have a spell checker? It’s pretty easy to use. The SA has more spelling and grammatical errors than any paper I read.

  • Riding a two wheeled motorized vehicle is challenging. I ride and do not understand why others do not 1) Wear a proper helmet; brain matter does matters and you do not want to be cognitive impaired 2) Protective Apparel; you don’t want to deal with “road rash” it can be a long term healing process leaving behind some nasty scars. Aside from the aforementioned, a mishap can end in death. I hope that those who opt to ride will 1) take the Motorcycle Safety Federation (MSF) class 2) Exercise caution and obey the laws (be predicable)…just saying.
