RALPH COUEY | Carving into Halloween history
I was thinking the other day about Halloween and remembering the traditions associated with it.

Bike down; tips to assist at scene | Ralph Couey
It is a beautiful day; bright sunshine and comfortable temperatures. A line of motorcycles stretches out in front of you, thundering along roads dappled in sunlight and leaves. Suddenly, it happens. As an oncoming vehicle strays across the centerline, a bike swerves and goes down. A shower of sparks flies from the sliding machine as it shreds itself all over the road.
