What's Up - Safety
It doesn't happen by accident
It's now 2010 so it's once again
to be thinking about safety. And I gotta say
that it's 'MY Safety' that I'm most
concerned about. Don't be going something 'stupid' that is going to hurt me...
There seems to be a couple or three or four that are not paying attention and also feel they need to jump ahead of cars and trucks or they are keeping cars and trucks from changing lanes --- STOP IT ---
Question: If the tail gunner
(Tail Rider or last person in the group) sees people/club riders deviating from the ride route what should they do?
Answer: The tail gunner has a responsibility to the club, its participants, and corner markers. Once people deviate from the ride they are not riding with the club and are on their own. Corner markers are usually in an increased risk area and should not be left out to dry or to decide "How long should I wait". They should be assured that the tail gunner will be coming very soon. The greater good of the many outweighs that of a few lost souls.
