Riders, watch your bikes. Always lose a few to thieves every year.
Officer Robert Lehman said the influx of traffic, with thousands of spectators and motorcycles coming through Monterey County, makes it necessary to have additional officers out in search of careless drivers and riders.
All drivers traveling this weekend should be extra cautious because of the thousands of motorcycles, Lehman said.
“Everybody needs to pay a little more attention, obviously motorcycles are hard to see most of the time and a lot of people can be surprised by them showing up so quick,” he said.
