Dear Road Dawg,
"I’m a rider who has a family and I always try to make the right decisions when I’m riding my bike. Sometimes I go riding with a few friends and from time to time they tend to ride unsafely like stunting on the freeway, speeding and weaving in and out of traffic unnecessarily. This type of riding puts my life in jeopardy. I don’t want to sound like an old maid or anything, but how can I let them know their riding is too dangerous without sounding like a sore loser or old maid?"
Sincerely......"How to tell friends about safe riding"

Dear Road Dawg,
"I have been noticing a lot of individuals and clubs devoting their time to helping those in need. This is a positive thing, but at the same time I am wondering how much of these donations are really being sent in the end. How would I find out if the money collected is being sent to these charities?"
"The greedy stealing from the needy"
