We always warn to be careful when riding!

watch for wildlife

AMERiders always warns to be careful when you are riding, and at the 2016 Annual Sturgis Rally, it proves to be more so.  According to a news site, “This year’s Sturgis Rally recorded its first death Tuesday afternoon. At this time last year, nine motorcyclists had died in crashes. Bike versus wildlife crashes is a dangerous trend this year, causing injuries from minor to serious but not life-threatening.Tuesday alone, three bikers hit deer in different incidents. A deer was also the cause of bike crash Monday. It isn’t just deer bikers have to avoid. A biker from New Mexico hit a sheep Tuesday when a flock wandered onto U.S. Highway 212 near Nisland,SD.”

So please pay more careful attention while riding if you are at Sturgis, and at any other bike rallies like this that you may attend.
