Ride well Idaho.
If you’re like most of us, one ride was all it took to get you hooked on motorcycling. There’s nothing like the feeling of freedom you get on the open road, so don’t let one bad decision take it all away. Please wait to drink until you’re done with your ride. Drinking and riding isn’t worth your life — or the life of someone else.
