Let's take a look at the New York State motorcycle laws.
It is almost time to store your bike(s), plan accordingly. FXCHD in Adams Center has storage building called "The Barn", contact them for storage pricing and special military rates. It not just for winter you can store your bikes for deployments as well.
This month, I would like to cover hand signals in the group rides you take part in . Most groups have signals that may be unique to their group. However, when different groups or independents get together, it is very useful to know universal group riding hand signals to have a good time for everyone. There are enough cagers not watching out for motorcycles...let's not do the same to each other! Below are some illustrations of the universally recognized hand signals. This has been up here long enough! If you don't know this by now, then stay in the back of the groups and do what the hand signal the bike in front of you is doing; for those behind you!
Next month (Dec) I'll post some graphics concerning lane orientation and how to handle corners.
