Don't let this be you. As the 2010 Sturgis Rally draws to a close, we encourage riders to exercise extra caution as they make the journey home.
Three motorcycle crashes claim three lives before the official start of Rally.
Two bikers killed Sunday in separate accidents.
Rally-related accidents claim more lives.
Missouri motorcyclist killed in crash on I-90 in SD.
Plucked these headlines out of the Rapid City Journal
over the course of the last 10 days. As the 70th annual Sturgis Rally
draws to a close this weekend, motorcyclists will be flooding the highways and byways once more. Be careful out there people. The four riders in the first headline were hit by a pickup that crossed into their lane in a construction zone.
We urge everybody on the road trying to get home to exercise extra caution. Look three, four, five times if need be. Don’t assume cagers see you. Back it down a little if you’re on an unfamiliar stretch. And make sure your tires have enough pressure and are in good shape. Our condolences to the families of the riders in the headlines. We simply posted them as a word of caution. We want everybody to get home safely so that we can do it all again next year.
