Up Close and Personal with the Cirrus Jet

I was in Duluth, MN earlier this week picking up my 4 year old Cirrus SR22 from two months in factory rejuvenation. While waiting for the very competent service and paint guys to address squawks, I had the chance to get an Up Close tour of the new Cirrus Personal Jet (Vision, SF-50 or whatever the code name of the week is).

Here is are my impressions.

New Massachusetts Bike Law

All bikers and motorists in MA should be aware of the new Bike Law that was passed finally after many attempts. Spread the word!

Some highlights:

* Motorists can be fined for "dooring" cyclists.
* Motorists can't cut off cyclists after passing.
* Cyclists have full use of the lane and cannot be squeezed to the side by a motorist.
* A motorist is liable if they hit a cyclist riding on the shoulder.

This is all good news, as far as I am concerned.
