Ok, this is just whack.........

As everybody hits the highway this year, I want you to look at the results of a recent study that asked drivers to classify activities other than driving that they do behind the wheel while operating their vehicles. This is what you're up against as you try and negotiate our Nation's highways on your bike.

PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT GOES ON AROUND YOU WHEN YOU'RE ON YOUR MOTORCYCLE, LOOKS LIKE NOBODY ELSE DRIVING DOES!

If you wonder what other drivers consider dangerous, here are the 31 activities classified by your peers on the highway:

Low Risk:
Listening to music.
Listening to radio.
Talking with passengers.
Changing CDs, tapes, MP3 tracks, etc.
Drinking beverages

Yelling at other drivers.
Operating a GPS system.
Smoking.
Listening to audio books. Eating food

Medium Risk:
Talking on the phone (without a hands-free device).
Texting.
Changing shoes.
Applying makeup.
Taking off clothes.
Kissing.

Reading road maps.
Combing/doing hair.
Applying deodorant/perfume.
Brushing teeth.
Taking off jewelry.

High Risk:
Writing/reading e-mails.
Sexual activity.
Working on laptop.
Reading newspapers or magazines.
Reading books.

Watching a movie.
Playing video games.
Browsing the Web.
Putting on clothes.
Shaving.
