AMERiders wants you to Have an Electrifying and Spooktakular Halloween as You Boogy down the Road on your Motorcycle to your favorite Haunt for that spooky party tonight. Please make sure to watch out for other ghouls and goblins in their ghoul and spook mobiles as well. We figured we would take a break and give you some tips for trick or treaters, and show off some wacky costumes for Motorcyclists.
Careful of the trick or treaters
All the little ghouls, goblins, princes, princesses, and other freaky things will be out looking for tricks and treats tonight so make sure you look exceptionally carefully as you ride tonight, moreso than you already do. If you are wanting to keep your trick or treaters safe as well here are a few tips. Some you could even adopt yourself for your own costumes.
-Use face makeup instead of masks. Masks can make it hard to see.
-Give kids a flashlight to light their way.
-Add reflective tape to costumes and trick-or-treat bags.
-Have everyone wear light-colored clothing.
-Use flame-resistant costumes
-Plan the trick-or-treat route in advance – make sure adults know where their children are going. A parent or responsible adult should accompany young children door-to-door in neighborhoods.
-It’s not only vampires and monsters people have to look out for. Be cautious around animals, especially dogs.
-Walk, don’t run.
-Only visit homes that have a porch light on. Accept treats at the door – never go inside.
-Walk only on the sidewalks, not in the street.
-If no sidewalk is available, walk at the edge of the roadway, facing traffic.
-Look both ways before crossing the street, and cross only at the corner.
-Don’t cut across yards or use alleys.
-Don’t cross between parked cars.
Use extra caution if driving. The youngsters are excited and may forget to look both ways before crossing.
For those planning to welcome trick-or-treaters to their homes, follow these safety steps:
-Light the area well so young visitors can see.
-Sweep leaves from your sidewalks and steps.
-Clear your porch or front yard of obstacles someone could trip over.
Some people choose to celebrate Halloween by dressing up, others guzzle copious amounts of candy and/or booze with or without a costume. Others dress up their motorcycles. Here are some of the best and the worst biker and motorcycle Halloween costumes we have seen documented on the net.
This guy better be a chief or something, because otherwise, he’s going to get pelted (pun intended) by politically-correct white folk. He doesn’t realize he’s being chiefly offensive. (Oh and where are his pants?
Ironman rides a yellow bike… and can’t see through his helmet.
You could even fashion your own Storm Trooper suit… or any Star Wars character for that matter. Instantly nerdelicious.
Or maybe you’d prefer that your motorcycle wears the bunny costume.
Slap on a skeleton mask and boom, costume. A veil over your chicks face, ta-daaaa she’s the corpse bride. Perhaps you’ve not yet found your motorcycle-soul-mate and prefer to go as the night in shining armor on your incredibly chromed out Harley? This would so work on any motorcycle…
You just might wanna watch out for the cops and that polearm though… Wouldn’t quite know how to explain that one… There might not be a carry permit for it either. lol.
And there you have it maybe a few bits to give you an idea on a costume if you didn’t have one already. Please stay safe and Have a Happy Halloween.
