How to increase your visibility as a biker to motorists

Motorcycle riders concentrate on seeing road hazards as a matter of course, but it is vitally important that bikers be seen by motorists as well.

However, there are ways for all motorcycle riders to become more visible, color preferences aside.

Former NFL player indicted in drug case

Carolina Panthers fans most likely remember former player Greg Hardy, who spent five seasons with the team. Hardy was pulled over for a traffic stop in Texas on Sept. 26, and officers found a baggie in his vehicle that Hardy denied knowing anything about. It was later found to contain .7 grams of cocaine. This resulted in a felony drug charge and the possibility of up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
