    "...She said there was no way that the driver of the SUV could have avoided hitting the motorcyclist..."

    Having lived in that area for years, this tells me that the SUV driver was probably tailgating and that the SUV speed was a contributing factor.

    RIP rider. Condolences to the rider's friends and family.

    Am I wrong? Or is it not the law to have total control of the front end of your vehicle? Leaving enough time to stop for emergencies and hazzards??? The rider may have made a mistake, but I doubt that he needed to pay the price he did. Why do bicycles get more respect than motorcycle enthusiasts? ?
    My thoughts and prayers go to the family.
     
  7. It has less to do with it being a motorcycle and alot more to do with the piss poor drivers in this state. You can't leave a car length for safety let alone 3 or 4, someone will take that space and fill it right in to shave a few seconds of their commute. It's really a sad state of affairs.

    It's disgusting how many people pay for this stupidity with their lives.
     
  9. If you watch the news article they that the driver was coming from the opposite direction...
    Maybe there was nothing the driver could do, maybe......

    The article posted, states they were both heading west. Am I missing something? I am very new to this site. If I am out of line, please let me know.
     
  11. Seems like the R.I.P. keys on my keyboard are wearing thin this month...:angry7: My condolences to the loved ones of this fellow rider...
     
  12. People get tickets for hitting deer because they were riding "too fast for conditions". I have a hard time believing that this accident doesn't warrant the same citation.

    I'm not suggesting that the SUV driver be indicted for vehicular homicide, but too fast for conditions would at least be nice.

    I heard about it this morning from the police report side of things. They were headed in opposite directions, rider lost control due to VERY high speed and crossed over the middle lane. Dead upon arrival. There are some other fine details but ya...


    Ride safe and don't be idiots! Its not a race out there.

    RIP
