ND, Bikes Are Back! Time To Share The Road.
With no snow, motorcycles have been back on the street for quite some time. I bet there's plenty of riders that "Hardley" missed a day. But it's time to put motorcycles back at the top of our minds. Not all bikes are big roaring beasts, some are whisper-quiet and ridiculously fast. Some may be a little slower but still really silent.
So, it's time for drivers to get our heads on a swivel, and as they say- look one way, look the other way, than look back again. Four tire drivers have to be hyper-aware but so do y'all on two wheels (trikes too).

ABATE of North Dakota is a non-profit organization that is not only a social group, but a safety group as well. They advocate for the rights of motorcyclists but always with an emphasis on staying safe. And apparently raffling off guns! You can't have a successful North Dakota raffle without firearms. That's just a fact.
So remember to keep your eyes and ears open and give motorcycles plenty of space. Share the road and save lives.
