||DAYTONA BEACH -- The
unfortunate death of Bruce Rossmeyer July 30th 2009 instituted changes to
his businesses. Rossmeyer opened Daytona Harley-Davidson on Beach
St. in 1994. Though motorcycle sales
had stopped at the Beach Street location, it was still a place many
visited because of the Museum inside. Now with the completion of
Destination Daytona in Ormond Beach
the museum can be moved to it's new location on the Ormond Beach property.
And the Daytona location will be shut down completely.

And the Bullschitt is increasing everyday.
"There are over 3 million posts on Instagram tagged with '#driving,' nearly 50,000 with '#drivinghome,' over 9,000 tagged '#drivingtowork' and more than 3,500 tagged '#drivingselfie,'" reads the report. According to Distraction.gov, the official government website for distracted driving, 3,331 people were killed in crashes that involved distracted drivers in 2011, while 387,000 people were injured. Not surprisingly, among drivers under the age of 20 who were involved in fatal crashes, 11 percent were "distracted." And of the 15- to 19-year-olds in fatal crashes, 21 percent were using cell phones.
Famed director Werner Herzog addressed the impact of distracted driving with a 30-minute documentary released in August. The short film, titled "From One Second to the Next," was done in collaboration with AT&T and has been viewed more than 2.2 million times. If you need any more reasons why taking selfies while driving is a bad idea, you need only watch the first couple minutes of Herzog's work, here is the Link.
2013 A tiny bit of technological
wizardry — A helicopter mounted infrared camera — saved the life
of motorcyclist Daniel William Brinson II, last Wednesday in Florida
when his motorcycle crashed along a darkened stretch of Interstate 95 in
Pompano Beach. His body was hurled into a thick patch of seagrape and pine
trees, invisible to rescuers who drove past, unable to find him.

Finally after 22 months Digger & Jam see Michael Del Freo Jailed: On 1/27/2012 Michael Del Freo of
Hudson was arrested after hitting Gary
S. Thomas, 62 (Digger) - Janet M. Nash, 48 (Jam), but here is the deal,
Del Freo was not arrested at the scene but at his home at 14019 Shoal
Drive because he scrammed without even seeing if the 2 bikers where dead
or alive. Del Freo may not have gotten arrested at all if was’nt for
Fellow Biker KRAUT who chased that jackass down and called the cops. Del
Freo’s BAC was 2 times the legal limit & he was charged with driving
under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident with serious
bodily injury. Digger & Jam where seriously injured and spent several
months in the hospital. The trial of Del Freo was postponed many times but
on Sept 30th 2013 he finally got a free trip to the Greybar
motel when he was sentenced to ONLY 18 Months. Is that justice? Was that
Fair? I think not !!!

Motorcycle News: Some folks wanna go out in a Hearse and some in a urn of ash. Ask most average Motorcycle Riders and they will probably chose the Urn. Recently I was at the Motorcycle shop of my friend Ross Mullen in Holiday. As we shot the breeze he was telling me about one of his most recent projects, the Urn he made to house the ashes of a good friend with 6 months to live. (left) It is awesome, what a job, he polished it to a mirror like finish and the cast iron cylinder which will house the ashes is flawlessly painted in a dull black

|With better information, drivers drive better. An innovation in motorcycle brake lights could make roadways safer for everyone, but it took three young motorcyclists—not one of the dozens of existing motorcycle manufacturers—to develop and market the answer. VoloLights is an aftermarket product that attaches to a motorcycle’s rear fender and using an embedded accelerometer flashes different light patterns to indicate deceleration.|

WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN
While I was on a run for Bern & Ann November 14th I parked my Scoot went into the 2nd stop and my Bike was hit by a Cager and knocked to the ground. I would like to personally thank the fine Scooterfolk pictured left for picking it up and informing me of the mishap. I am pleased to report I rode off on the rest of the run without any problems. A ding in the tank and some cosmetic damage was it. It just goes to prove WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN and the biker community is alive and well in Florida. Thank you both so much for your brotherhood. I will never forget your kind deed to a fellow Biker. "DonV"
