Watch those wheels!

This week on Tuesday’s Tip: “Watch those wheels!”

I believe that I read this tip either on Dave’s blog or in one of his comments. For those of you who don’t know Dave, he is the biker blogger at the Road Gritz Cafe in California. 

If you a see a car or truck on a side street or driveway that could potentially pull out in front of you, keep your eyes on the front wheels. If you see the front wheels start to roll then you know the car’s on the move and could potentially pull out in front of you.

I don’t understand why so many bikers who have had a car pull out in front of them claim to have made eye contact with the driver and are in shock that the driver pulled out. I hardly see the drivers face because I’m watching those wheels as if my life depends on it. Maybe once you make eye contact with the dreaded cager, he holds you in a trance as he trys to kill you… it’s that old vampire trick!

I call those cars poking their nose out in traffic “nosers”. Gotta watch the front wheels on those nasty nosers.
