hey all, no this isn't a 'rider down' thread as such. but here in SA we've had 4 riders in serious accidents in the last 4 days. two were single vehicle, two involved a collission with a car. One of the single vehicle accident riders has died. The other 3 are all in critical condition. Is it a co-incidence that it's a sunny 26 degrees? that spring is here? is it that the people who don't ride during winter are out in droves, and car drivers have gotten used to less bikes on the road from winter? I'd like some input from you experienced crew - why do you think we've suddenly had a surge in motorcycle crashes? a combination of the above factors?
