    I am here to tell you my husband was involved in a hit and run(him on a motorcycle)the people never caught. Anyway what i'm trying to get at, people do not have any respect for motorcycles at all, they will ride your bumper pass you and apparently run you over and could care less. My husband thank GOD is still alive.

    Motorcylcs are not crowding the roads. Did you not read or can you? He was trying to avoid a car that came into HIS LANE!!! HIS LANE!!!!! Most of the accidents involving bikes are usually not the cyclist's fault but that of the other driver. I am not a fan of motorcycles but people in cars and trucks need to be respectful of them. I don't know how anyone can miss them. People who chose to ride bikes have that right and should not be crowded by OTHER vehicles. My heart and prayers go out to the family!!

    Seems in this case a driver of a car was to blame for the biker going down. I feel as gas prices go up, people should be more aware of others using alternate means of transportation such as motorcycles, bicycles, scooters, and such. If people in cars would put down there cell phones and pay attention to what's going on around them when they're driving, the roads would be a lot safer for everyone. PAY ATTENTION WHILE YOUR DRIVING. It could save a life.

    ky is number two in deaths on motor cycles.the false hood that motor cycles save gas along with the risk of death which is the most evil.the crowding of our road ways with motor cycles to save gas is a high price to pay.dont be fooled by anyone these machines are not for every one.
