Response from Woody at Live 105 regarding his statements on the air.

Woody sent me this message to post for the membership.

I have read thru it of course and I am looking forward to getting the good out of the bad at this point. Thanks to the resolve of the membership here and others around the country and even abroad it appears that Woody does indeed know that he stepped on some passionate toes. 2 wheel toes

I am proud to have that passion be part of the board and salute those that took action to defend our safety on the road. It looks like thanks to that there will be things happening that will do so.

Read on.. and before you go off on any negative rant.. think of the positive that is coming out of this.


First, let me apologize to everyone for causing such a stir. Believe it or not this wasn't any kind of "stunt" to try to get listeners or anything.......what sense would that make? Anyway, I'm really sorry and I've tried to take it back a million times so far, and have advocated lane splitting and encouraged people to STOP PHUCKING WITH PEOPLE ON MOTORCYCLES on the roads, since the initial comment on the 12th.

At this point I don't know what else I can say other than I'm sorry and trust me, message received loud and clear......don't phuck with bikers. Ya'll are amazing at sticking together.

Besides taking the safety class (which I'll do, I'm actually really looking forward to it. I've always wanted to learn how to ride) I've got some other things cookin' in an attempt to "make good" with you guys and biker broads. Including, but not limited to running some awareness Public Service Announcements about lane sharing.....lots have been asking and suggesting that. So consider it done. They'll be on by weeks end. Is there somewhere I can get some specifics.....facts? We'll need to write copy.

Don't take this out on Dan at Bay Area Yamaha, he had nothing to do with this, and trust me when I tell you he gave an earful to everyone here at the radio station about his displeasure over the situation. You can hate me, that's fine.....I'll understand. But Dan wasn't involved in the original segment, and has done nothing but be a stand-up guy and defend motorcycling.

He's got it right do most of you on this board.......let's try to turn this into a positive. We on the morning show will be more than happy to help promote a charity event, or something else of the ilk to help get the word out.

Again, I'm really sorry. Not that you have to believe me, but it's my hope that over time all of you can see that I'm not an evil guy. Just a dumb radio DJ. Lesson learned.

Woody (yes that Woody)

I honestly believe I no longer have a soul.

I was sure something positive would come out of this.

woody, once you pass your MSF course, get a motorcycle and join in on the fun. Hell, you can even come here and ask what would make a good newbie bike!

Thanks for posting that Dennis,

The more I was thinking about it the more pissed I was getting.

Thanks for stepping up Woody.

Way to man up, Woody. If the PSA's re lane sharing happen, I will buy you a beer at a social.

Finally - an apology. I really hope he and the station follow through with promoting motorcycle awareness. I wouldn't wanna have a world of motorcyclists pissed at me, that's for sure!

Sweet. I'm happy with this.

God help the boy if he ever starts riding seriously. I can just imagine him getting slapped upside the helmet as he gets passed by another rider....but that wouldn't be very nice of me, would it?
