Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
12/1/04
 

Greetings Riders,
 
It's hard to believe that we are at December 1st of 2004 already. Only 30 days left till we will be at the midway point of this decade. Doesn't seem that long ago that we were wondering if our computers would crash as we rolled into the new millennium. One thing that December brings to motorcycle riders is a large choice of Toy Runs and Dealership Sales and Events. This is the time to take advantage of these big discounts for your Christmas presents or those heated grips that you could now use for yourself. Whatever it is you desire, go to the Rides and Events Calendar on www.cyclerides.com to find out when and where these events are.
 
One of the things I like to do with the newsletter is to bring experiences to you that you might not have done before. I've brought you fun things like Sky Diving, Bungee Jumping and 3000 mile rides in the past. But this week the message is very serious and I would hope that you would read through to the end.
 
Last week, Lieutenant Doug Hildebrandt from the Peoria Police Department asked if Mrs. C. and I would like to ride along with one of the officers during a night that the DUI Task Force was in operation. The DUI Task Force is an operation that includes officers from all of the surrounding police departments for one night of focusing on identifying and taking impaired drivers off the streets. On this night the command center was set up at the Peoria Sports Complex. This is where the drivers that were arrested would be brought back for a breathalyzer and a blood test.
 
The reason I wanted to do this is because I know that drunk driving is a deadly proposition and I wanted to see first hand the real life situations that these officers are seeing on the streets. This is one subject that probably everyone of us has either experienced or knows someone that has experienced deadly consequences with a drunk driver. With the national statistic of one person dying every 33 minutes from an alcohol related crash, I knew that this must be a serious problem.
 
As I was riding along I almost felt guilty by association. I know that there have been times in the last 30 years that I have been guilty of the same offense that we were going to find on the streets that night. But as I have gotten older and awareness of the DUI problem is more prevalent, I am very cognizant of not wanting to be a statistic on either side of the issue. While riding the motorcycle my drink of choice is usually bottled water. If I know I am going to be at a place for a while I might have one alcoholic beverage per hour. But those are my own rules, I'm sure you have your own. My main concern is not that I would be DUI, but how well am I going to operate my motorcycle if I have diminished my alertness with too much to drink.
 
As we were riding along, it was interesting to hear what the officers look for in spotting DUI drivers. The obvious of weaving and erratic driving are a given. But they also look for things such as not using a blinker, making wide turns, not turning on your headlights, turning into the outside lane on a multi lane street and of course speeding. One of the stops that we saw was a guy went flying by the unmarked car doing about 65 miles per hour in a 40. Once he was stopped and gotten out of the car, it was obvious that he was impaired. Even though it isn't a humorous situation in any way, it was comical to watch this guy trying to fake his way through the field sobriety test while maintaining that he had only had a couple of beers. When you have had too much to drink, saying your ABC's backwards, balancing on one leg and walking a straight line foot to foot is not an easy task. I don't know if this is for real or not, but here is a hilarious video from a police car of a DUI arrest (1mb).
 
The second arrest was a 22 year old girl driving with 2 friends. This is where the emotional part of the job must be tough and showed me just how serious this charge is. After watching this girl go through the tests, it was obvious that she should not have been driving at 2:00am after a night of drinking. Knowing that her life was going to change forever with the DUI arrest and all of the circumstances that go with that for a 22 year old person, I found myself starting to feel sorry for her as she started crying and begging the officer to reconsider. But then reality kicked in and I began to realize how bad I would feel for an entire family if she would have made a mistake and killed an innocent Mother driving home from a nightshift. At that point I began to think that what she is going through is going to be a lot less than an entire family would go through mourning the death of their Mother.
 
Under Arizona Law these 2 were arrested for DUI, hand cuffed, taken to the command center to have blood drawn for analysis, had their cars towed and then they were released to a friend or relative to drive them home. Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) of 0.08 is considered DUI. A reading of 0.15 is considered Extreme DUI. These drivers will be facing a minimum of 10 days in jail, $500 in fines, their license suspended for 90 days and one year probation. Not to mention that this will be on their driving record for insurance costs and be a question on any employment application. The National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information has released a chart that will give you some idea of BAC according to your weight and the amount of drinks you have had. This is not an exact science, there are a lot of variables to be considered. Click Here for the chart.
 
I am not here to tell anyone how to run their lives. I am just wanting to make everyone aware for your own safety and that of others, the consequences of having too much to drink and getting behind the wheel of a car or riding a motorcycle. I think everyone knows what their OWN individual limits are and should monitor that accordingly. If your buddy weighs 240 pounds and you weigh 160, you don't need to try and match him drink for drink. Physiology says you will lose. Here is a good chart that shows you times and drinks. The chart above says that just going to a .14 BAC that you are 20 times more likely to have an accident. The bottom line is that everyone needs to drink responsibly, be aware of your own limitations and don't put yourself in a situation that could be a life changing mistake for you or for someone else, all for one more drink.
 
As I was writing this I wasn't sure how this subject would be received. About that time I got validation that I was supposed to be talking about this right now. Totally out of the blue and unprompted, a friend of mine emailed me the following poem titled, "Went To A Party, Mom". Particularly for those of us that have kids, this really hits home. Show this to your teenage kids that are now driving.  And for yourself, think about this the next time you want to have "one more" when you know you might already be at your limit. Thanks for taking the time to read this to the end. May we all have a safe Holiday Season.
 


 

WENT TO A PARTY, MOM
 
I went to a party, And remembered what you said.
You told me not to drink, Mom, So I had a Sprite instead.
I felt proud of myself,  The way you said I would,
That I didn't drink and drive, Though some friends said I should.

I made a healthy choice, And your advice to me was right.
The party finally ended, And the kids drove out of sight.
I got into my car, Sure to get home in one piece.
I never knew what was coming Mom, something I expected least.

Now I'm lying on the pavement, And I hear the policeman say,
The kid that caused this wreck was drunk, Mom, his voice seems far away.
My own blood is all around me, As I try hard not to cry.
I can hear the paramedic say, This girl is going to die.

I'm sure the guy had no idea, While he was flying high,
Because he chose to drink and drive, Now I would have to die.
So why do people do it Mom, Knowing that it ruins lives?
And now the pain is cutting me, Like a hundred stabbing knives.

Tell sister not to be afraid Mom, Tell Daddy to be brave,
And when I go to Heaven, Put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave.
Someone should have taught him, That it's wrong to drink and drive.
Maybe if his parents had, I'd still be alive. 
 
My breath is getting shorter Mom,
I'm getting really scared. These are my final moments,
And I'm so unprepared. I wish that you could hold me Mom,
As I lie here and die. I wish that I could say, "I love you, Mom!" 

So, I love you and good-bye.

We will feed and entertain the kids while they are waiting for the riders to arrive at Rawhide. When you arrive, the children will be eyeing up every gift that you lay on the pile. Once all the riders have delivered the toys, the kids will be able to go and pick out any three toys that they desire. It is an awesome site to see. For those of you that were there last year, you know what I mean. Feel free to bring some candy to throw to the kids as you walk in.

I am not taking a stand on this like I did the Noise Ordinance in Carefree, but since everyone has to ride through Carefree to get to Cave Creek, I thought I would pass along an article that was in The Arizona Republic about speed traps in Carefree. Apparently Carefree got 2 new radar guns and are making good use of them. For those of you that ride there, you can Click Here to read the article and decide for yourself. I contacted Lt. Trombi in Carefree and he said that they issue between 250-300 tickets per month and about half of them are for speeding. So watch your speed through there.
 
This Video has gotten so much play, I decided to put it in the newsletter again. Here is a video clip of a Saturday Night Live skit with Robert De Niro
acting as the Homeland Security spokesman. His job is to tell us all of the terrorists names to watch out for. This is hilarious! Click here for the 2mb video.
 
As for me this weekend, I will be doing the
Toys To Kids Ride in Fountain Hills. Everything is ready to go and it should be another special ride. I look forward to seeing all of you there. 

Until Next Week,
Blessings and Safe Riding To All,
