The news feeds are busy today and filled with interesting news!

An article out of the Fairview Post talks about the potential of a major rally in Fairview - one of the former organizers of the Digby Wharf Rat Rally - Peter Robinson has pitched the idea to the Fairview Chamber and they are receptive - so we shall see if northern Alberta will finally have a major rally again!

Another TV series about outlaw bikers is set to hit the small screen. This time it's from the land of OZ!

An article out of Macon Georgia caught my eye and is very fitting with May being Motorcycle Awareness month - a man by the name of Don Koehler who had a bike wreck has his wrecked motorcycle mounted on a trailer with a great big sign that reads:
“Help me teach all drivers, young and old, to slow down and look twice to save lives.”

I think that it might be a very effective campaign and wonder if it shouldn't be repeated in every major city across north America!

A rider safety innovation in the UK that would be beneficial here in north America is the new manhole cover design. It is skid resistant and improves traction in wet and freezing conditions!

The city of Edmonton is urging riders to stay safe by using a video from Australia regarding speed & motorcycles and accident reconstruction.

There are many articles in the news feeds today - some may have bearing on your life as a rider, visit where I work is keeping You informed!

Today is newspaper day so for those getting the Busted Knuckle - Canada's ONLY Weekly newspaper for the riding community - I hope you are enjoying all 58 pages!

I leave you with a few funnies, shared with me by friends on Facebook and by email...
A giggle is good for the soul!

If you are fortunate enough to be riding today, please ride like everyone around you is blind and can not see you...

    That's a great article from Oz Betty (to name but one). Well worth the one minute to watch it.
