I also ride mostly solo. I use both the Head Unit and my cell. The HU gives good visual signals and the number of cars approaching. If your hearing is pretty good you can hear the tone from the...

I acknowledge a lot of people when I ride. A wave to other riders, police, or a motorist who showed some awareness of me. I try to look predictable and aware of those around me. Will any of this get...

I'm 73 and had my first toke in 1967. That having been said, I haven't had any in, oh, at least 10 - 15 hours. All things in moderation. As far as riding (or any physical activity) when high, I...
