Who needs two hands on the handlebars?  Certainly not David Beckham, who was photographed by Hollywood paparazzi on his custom motorcycle recently in Mailbu California checking his cell phone in traffic. The 37 year old dad, who’s wife, Victoria, gave birth last year to their infant daughter Harper was reportedly checking his text messages, but that’s not clear from the photograph.  What is evident is Beckham is violating California (as well as his native Austrailian) road rules by using a hand held mobile device while operating a motorized vehicle.  But, we won’t tell if you don’t.

have you ever checked your cell phone while operating a motorcycle? Take the poll and confess…

Star Football Player Wrecks Bike, Out for Season

Marcus Benard, a defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, has pled not guilty to two charges stemming from his October wreck of his Can-Am Spyder. Benard broke his hand and sustained other injuries in the wreck which has ended his 2011-2012 season.

A witness told police that Benard was traveling at “a high rate of speed” before he crossed four lanes of traffic and slammed into a guard rail, where police estimated Benard traveled over 200 feet in the air after impact.
The team has decided it will keep Benard, despite his contract violation which forbids him from sky diving and riding motorcycles. A pre-trial hearing has been set for Nov. 21, 2011.

Nine homemade crosses will stand in a vacant field in South Lubbock all day Saturday — one for each of the motorcyclists killed in Lubbock this year.

Deanna Jandrew and her friends painted white the 7-foot wooden crosses her husband made in the memory of their friend Christy Ann Winters and the other motorcyclists killed.

Nine homemade crosses will stand in a vacant field in South Lubbock all day Saturday — one for each of the motorcyclists killed in Lubbock this year.

Deanna Jandrew and her friends painted white the 7-foot wooden crosses her husband made in the memory of their friend Christy Ann Winters and the other motorcyclists killed.

But the field near 87th Street and University Avenue where Winters died last month won’t be vacant early Saturday afternoon, when hundreds of motorcyclists are expected to gather following a citywide motorcycle awareness ride.

Motorcyclists from all over the region will hit the streets at 11 a.m. Saturday, taking different routes throughout the city without a police escort to let Lubbock know they exist in traffic. They’re scheduled to ride on just about every single major street in Lubbock between 11 a.m. and noon.

“I want everyone in Lubbock to see the bikes so they can see how many are out there,” Jandrew said.

Devastated by the loss of her friend and outraged at the number of mounting motorcycle deaths this year, Jandrew set out on a mission to raise awareness for motorcycles in hopes of preventing future deaths.

“I started this because of Chris (Winters),” she said, but she added it has grown into a cause that she has come to realize is really important to many people and needs to be continued past Saturday’s awareness ride.
