As we approach the 2013 firearms deer season, outdoor safety comes to mind. There are few tips we to need to remember each year to remain safe in the woods, and while we are out and about in areas that potentially contain hunters. Blaze orange is not only important for hunters, but also for those who enjoy the outdoors or work outdoors during deer season. If you walk, bike or engage in other outdoor activities during the firearms deer season, it is wise to wear blaze orange.
Motorcycles have been a big part of my life for many years. Raised on a small mini bike at age 5, I eventually graduated to a smaller dirt bike, a larger dirt bike, smaller road bikes and currently ride a large touring motorcycle. My love for these machines has never been stronger and I find myself wanting to ride mine as much as I can. I have a large amount of saddle time on my bike and would hope I have a certain set of skills to ride and certain attributes necessary to ride at this time in my life, which is over the age of 45.
