Arizona Bike Week 2010 Marked by Tragedy
"PLEASE everyone watch out for motorcycles...It's that time of year when there are a lot of us out there!!!" advised Mark of the Hideaway Grill in nearby Cave Creek, where "Phoenix Bike Night" kicks off the rally on Friday, April 9th.
A group of 10 motorcycles were stopped at a red light at 27th & Carefree in Phoenix, AZ when they were stuck from behind by a semi-dump truck. Most of the bikers were members of the Phoenix Motorcycle Riders Group on a day ride with the Phoenix Motorcycle Kruzers.
"Pegs Down" - Some riders have vowed to ride their motorcycles with the passenger pegs down in memorial to the fallen riders, while others have vowed to tie a black bandana on the left handlebar of their bike to signify the loss of fellow-riders.
Many motorcycle riders have adopted the phrase, "Look Twice, Save A Life."
The YouTube video "You Didn't See Me" has been viewed 392,335 in the past three years and is something everyone should see and share.
