Wear your helmets, be safe and keep this couple in your prayers.

Someone at work heard about the accident and asked me if I knew who this was.

Lately I've seen a lot of scooterists out and about without helmets or protective gear. It makes me queasy.

From the Pioneer Press: The driver, Jerome D. Caron, 65, of Rosemount, was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger, Robyn M. Meddings, 53, who according to authorities lived at the same Rosemount address as Caron, was badly injured and transported by medical helicopter to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Hospital officials said Meddings was in critical condition Monday evening.

I got a new mesh jacket to wear in the summer for father's day, along with a helmet. Drivers don't look and I don't bounce so well anymore.

And please watch out for the vehicles turning in front of you who never see you.

Here's a link to a summary of the Hurt Report (aka Motorcycle Accident Cause Factors and Identification of Countermeasures).
