Bikes, Blues, and Barbecue

Comments Off

This is just a friendly reminder to all our drivers out on the highways in Northwest Arkansas this week and weekend…PLEASE SLOW DOWN A LITTLE FOR ALL OUR GUEST BIKERS.

It is tempting to drive in that normal fast pace life we live in today. However, this weekend we have hundreds of thousands of guest in our home (NWA) and they are all riding dangerous, life threatening motorcycles. Some folks complain about all the noise and traffic and that is ok to be concerned. On the other hand, please keep in mind the enormous positive impact Bikes, Blues,and Barbecue has on our economy. Hands down, there is no question, this event is great for us.

When a car or truck is negligent and strikes a motorcycle it likely the biker will suffer serious or life changing injuries or death. Compared to the same negligence by the car or truck when hitting another vehicle, it might only cause a minor injury. So let’s all slow down a little and Bikers…WEAR YOUR HELMETS.
