Texas Bikers-If You’re Headed West This Holiday Weekend-Beware!
A long holiday weekend... Nothing to do till Tuesday... Let's hit the road! And if you're doing so on your motorcycle-make sure you're aware of whatever laws are on the books in whatever state you're traveling to. Chances are if you're just staying here in the State of Texas-you'll be just fine because you're likely familiar with our laws and what's ok to do, what's not, and what could cost you some hefty fine money if you're caught. HOWEVER-if you're planning to head out of state, especially somewhere you don't often travel-you might wanna take the time to look up their laws when it comes to motorcyclists. Every state has its own set of rules in addition to what most consider to be the obvious these days like helmet laws, etc. But there are some weird ones that can throw you a curve here and there. And even though you might get a chuckle out of reading them here-keep in mind they CAN be enforced when you're out there by law enforcement if they so choose, which can hit you in the wallet where it hurts.
For example, if you're headed west to New Mexico this weekend to take in the Casino in Hobbs or something more scenic in Ruidoso-there are some oddball laws on the books to be mindful of so you aren't surprised, like:
NEW MEXICO LAW SAYS MEN MUST FILL UP FLAT TIRES FOR SINGLE LADIES
So fellas-if you see a single lady in need of assistance with a flat-the law says you have to walk over and help-or else. And hey-if Tinder hasn't been working out so well for you-now's your chance to try something different. Or just go be chivalrous and smile. Whatever comes first.
Oh--and in case her gas tank is empty...........
NEW MEXICO LAW SAYS MEN MUST PUMP GAS FOR FEMALE BIKERS.
So just a heads-up for the guys out there as you travel this weekend... If New Mexico is the destination-be prepared to obey the extra silly little-known laws--OR ELSE!
