I'm not too familiar with the big city-like problems that you guys face everyday. i live in a town of 2,ooo and the biggest city within 70 miles is a population of maybe 50,ooo. down here (or over here, i live in central illinois) our biggest problem is animals, tractors, and debris. but i had two friends get into a wreck over the weekend. both were on bikes. but one wasn't as experienced, went wide in a turn, and his buddy took it sharp. one friend has to have complete reconstructive facial surgery, and the other one lost a leg. i just hope that everyone realizes that no matter what your skill level, please use common sense and good group skills. i really hope i won't have to see this for a long time.
