We urge everyone to share the road and be alert, and we’re especially reminding motorcyclists to make yourselves visible, to use DOT-compliant motorcycle helmets, and to always ride sober.

If you ride a motorcycle, you already know how exciting it can be. You love cruising the open road. But riding a motorcycle can also be challenging as well as dangerous. Continue reading
Check your Motorcycle Tires Before You Ride
Spring has arrived, and most of us in New York can’t wait to jump on our motorcycles at the first sign of good riding weather. But remember, let’s not jump the gun on safety either. Below are a few tips on why it’s so important to check your motorcycle tires before you head out on the highway. Continue reading
PREVENTING SLIP AND FALL INJURIES IN THE WINTER
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that about 1 million Americans are injured, and 17,000 people die, as a result of slip and fall injuries every year.
Winter tends to be the worst weather for work related slip and fall injuries. OSHA and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are working together on a public education effort aimed at improving the way people prepare for and respond to severe weather.
In addition to fighting for people’s rights, RGLZ Personal Injury Law supports our local communities in many other ways. In the last few weeks, we have sponsored two local events that proved to be a great way to reconnect with the public, reaffirm our services, and give back to the communities that turn to RGLZ when they need help or just legal advice.
On September 18th, Accompsett Middle School held it’s second annual Color Run. RGLZ was a proud sponsor of the event, which supported a variety of cultural arts programs in the community. The Color Run was a 4k paint race that has no winners, but excited runners are showered with colored powder at stations along the run. Over 225 people participated and it proved to be successful in raising funds to help the children rediscover art.
The next week, Motorcycle Mike Esq was out in support of the Nassau County Cruise to The Show, and also sponsored this 7th annual parade and car show, which was a great send-off for an awesome summer. It was a fun-filled 2-day event at Eisenhower Park, with over 1200 show cars, vendors, and even a free concert featuring Eddie Money! Motorcycle Mike gained a lot of exposure at the show, along with connecting with the community.
It was a busy and productive September for the “RGLZ Street Team”, and we can’t wait to come up with even more new ways to conduct positive outreach. Stay tuned, as we transition into the colder months of the year, and if you see us out and about, come over and say hi!

On June 4th, “Motorcycle Mike” Levine was happy to host his sixth annual motorcycle poker run for charity, in support of United Cerebral Palsy of Suffolk. This run brings out bikers from all over New York to ride for a cause, and has become a staple early in the riding season for many of these bikers. Every year, thousands of dollars are raised, and all money taken in from the run and subsequent party goes directly to the charitable cause.
United Cerebral Palsy works to support the betterment of the lives of countless people with a range of disabilities, and we were extremely happy to have been able to raise over $5,000 for them, which will go directly into these programs which help their participants develop skills and interact in ways which dramatically improve their standard of living.
With the help of 102.3 WBAB, we put on a great party with live music, vendors, food, and the first ever Ultimate Road Trip contest, where 10 entrants had a chance to win a bike and trip. Everyone ended up going home with a prize of concert tickets thanks to the generosity of our partners, and we would like to thank Full Throttle Magazine, CYA Action Funwear, The Us Vets Motorcycle Club, and the Enders Motorcycle Club for their support this year.
The most rewarding part of the event was seeing the joy on the faces of UCP program participants who could make it down to see things in action. Being able to provide an experience like this for them is what makes it all worthwhile, and it’s what we’ll remember best about this year’s event.
