Q - What do the two numbers on my insurance policy mean? (examples: 30/60, 50/100, 300/500)

A - The LitiGATOR responds: These numbers tell you the amount of liability coverage you have.

A 30/60 policy means that the most your policy will pay is $30,000 for one person who you negligently injure....$60,000 for two or more people who you negligently injure.

Using the 30/60 Policy as an example:

If you hit someone and cause $50,000 in injuries, your insurance will pay the first $30,000 and they will look at you as a resource to collect the rest. If you injure five people, the most your policy will pay is $60,000. If you injure one person and cause $100,000 in injuries and you injure another and cause $100 in injuries, it will only pay the $30,000 to the seriously injured person ... and obviously something much less to the minimally injured person. They do not get added together for the seriously injured.

The same is true for the other numbers. $50,000 for one person ... $100,000 for two or more....and so on.

Make sure you have enough insurance coverage.

Autumn Colors!

They're still around! This may be the longest Autumn that I can recall. The colors in the trees are hanging on and on. Most days have brought blue skies to frame red maples and blazing yellow gums. I hope you're enjoying this glorious extended season of color and warm days.... I know I am!

The weather forecast looks pretty similar to last week's. In fact as I pulled in this week's data, only a few number changes transformed last week to this one.

Soon, I'm certain, our bikes will be tucked in their Winter hibernation garage. But today and at least through the next week, it looks as if us fair weather riders can still ride out happily!



Readers Respond

Thanks to everyone who responds to our writings each week! Here are a couple from last week's Veterans Day tribute.....

Jim Griffin responded to last week's mention of my father's time in WWII: "My dad was also in the Philippines in WW2. He was a Staff Sergeant with the Engineer Corps. After serving in France and Germany, instead of going home, they were sent to Manilla for the duration. The Islands were Japanese occupied when his company landed under fire. I Can't even imagine what they went through!"


Staff Sergeant Wally Gresham's wife Christine wrote to let us know that Wally got home safe and sound!....

"Wally arrived home safetly this past Saturday.  It was a great and emotional homecoming.  I have attached 2 pictures of his homecoming.  The first picture is a picture of his unit as they did a final prayer before being released to their families.  I guess this is something they did before every mission when they where over in afghanistan.  The second picture is one of his daughters as they greeted their dad for the first time.  They got very emotional and I am so glad I was able to capture this moment.  This last year has been a hard one, but I am so glad that we finally have Wally home and safe."


The Carolina Rider FORUM

It's slow taking off ... and it's been offline for a little while....but it's now available for us all to ask questions, explore resources, and connect with each other.

The Carolina Rider FORUM

Recent emails have stirred up the need for us to access and use this online resource. I received these 2 emails this week and find myself not the strongest resource to reply to their questions. Perhaps some of you out there have more thoughts, ideas, and answers for these readers? Read below what they wrote and then head on over to the FORUM and give 'em some advice....

Vox Helmet Recall? Anyone Have Problems with their Vox Helmet? ...

Sherri wrote : "Fancy Free, I read your newsletter every month.  I am trying to find out if there has been any recalls on Zox helmets.  Can you please help me find where I need to go to find out if there is any recalls on this practical helmet?  My helmet was made in 2008 and the model number is Alto.  The resin is separating from the helmet and is causing a sticky film on the outside of the helmet. Thanks for you help in advance."

Harley Plant in India ...

Trey writes in: "Hey, Did you hear about Harley's plan to build a plant in India?? Do you know if this will affect U.S. Manufacturing? Thanks!"

Go to The Carolina Rider FORUM and speak up!

Quick little Links, Stats, 'n News to chew on....


Lock your I-products on your handlebars


They've been popular in Europe and are making their way onto US handlebars. The 4Lock is for Apple products including iPhone and iPod. Their website says it's "for bikes and motorcycles, 4Lock comes with a special bracket to be fitted to the handlebars and a cover to protect against the elements."

Has anyone seen or tried one?


Cool Sidecar becomes a Movie Star!

Check out the sidecar that takes a role in the newest Harry Potter movie. It's created by a pretty cool European company, Watsonian Squire who specializes in sidecars and trailers.

Have you seen the new SHOP on our website? We just recently installed this new feature and it's just in its infancy. But we have t-shirts!

The first Carolina Rider t-shirts have been created and are available for purchase. You might win one some day if you're lucky and present at an event where we're giving one or two away. But in the meantime, don't hesitate to GET YOURS! The gray ones are that really soft sandwashed cotton. Light, soft, and comfortable. The black ones are good cotton medium-weight t's and I think our prices are pretty good.

Some guys have asked for other sizes. Several gals have requested tank tops. Yes, that's all in the plan. We're just taking baby steps. But if you want something we don't yet have, let us know! Much of what we do is in response to your requests and suggestions.

Honestly, we want to hear from YOU. You are the riders of The Carolinas. This is your publication, your resource, your connection. Let us know what you need and want.

We want to be all we can be for you.....and we're happy to serve....  



Until next week keep the shiny side up!!
