The Bi-State Motorcycle Awareness Council will host its first ever motorcycle safety and awareness event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Davenport West High School. 

The free event will include a bike show, food, a fun run and several other activities. It will also aim to educate people about motorcycle safety and build a relationship between riders and non-riders. 

"When you're at an intersection, look twice - look left, right, left again," said Kelly Carlson with the Blackhawk chapter of ABATE of Illinois. "Because we're small. We can be there one minute and not the next. Or we could not be there one minute and there the next."

"Look twice, save a life," said Rusty Harmening with Women on Wheels and the Bi-State Motorcycle Awareness Council. "And make sure that before you pull out, before you turn, make sure nobody's there." 

The event coincides with National Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Month, which runs through the end of May.
