We interrupt the regularly scheduled programming to bring you this public service announcement. “If you are going to risk your life on a motorcycle (especially in the Peoria County area), please at least wear a helmet at a minimum and definitely consider protective clothing!!!” I’m probably not the model template for safety awareness, but some things seem too logical not to do. Take for example when snowboarding. I swallowed my pride long ago and always wear a helmet and wrist guards. Why? Because I know what happens when you don’t both firsthand and through the powers of observation. I don’t ride a motorcycle so I do not have firsthand knowledge of what happens if you don’t bother to don the dome but thanks to an event this morning I can attest through the powers of observation that they do indeed save lives. This morning’s event will be with Linda and I for a very very long time.
