I got one last year that I 'presume' I picked up on the shoulder as I pulled over on it at speed then stopped to adjust equipment.
Motorcycle tires are wider than bicycle tires so have more room to pick up stuff. Plus on a motorcycle your area of focus is not as refined or tight as on a bicycle on the area directly in front of the tire.

I'll be doing my best to do so. Putting a calm, rational face to the issue, any issue, always seems to help.

Besides, I'll be a breath of fresh air....no hippy hair and not riding an Eeetalian bike.

So here is your homework: Become well versed in the Berkeley Study before you have the conversation.

As an entry point you cold thank her for her continued support of motorcycle training in Washington. Maybe she will appreciate hearing that from someone without "hippie hair."

The spokesman for WSP is merely passing along the message that the executive agency has directed to be passed along. They do not make the policy.
