Motorcyclists who have faced the frustration of sitting at “dead red” lights in Colorado have reason to celebrate! The Colorado State Legislature has passed a bill allowing bikers to proceed through malfunctioning lights. The law takes effect on August 2, 2019. However, as with all laws, there are important details that bikers should be aware of in order to take advantage of this new law properly.
Rider UP! challenges car passengers to be the first to spot a motorcyclist and yell its location in relation to the car. “Rider LEFT! Rider RIGHT! Rider BACK! Rider UP!” The player who spots and yells first is the winner.
Now there is a bill making its way through the Colorado Senate that could save motorcyclists’ lives. It’s called the “Use of Electronic Mobile Devices While Driving” Bill (SB 2019-012) and it is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Transportation & Energy Committee on Thu, Jan 24th.
Mark Miklos and Rob Tompkins have been buddies and bikers for over a decade. For many years, they talked about “one day” opening a biker bar together, so when a local bar in Golden, CO went on the market, Mark and Rob needed very little convincing to jump in with both feet.
