Dont brake check an RV if you're on a motorcycle...duh

http://www.fox5sandiego.com/news/ksw...,6272692.story

CAMARILLO, Calif. - A motor home struck and killed a motorcyclist, dragging his body about 75 feet on U.S. Highway 101 in a conclusion to a Ventura County road-rage encounter.

The motorcycle was impaled on the motor home.

Witnesses and motor home driver Michael Antoine told the California Highway Patrol the biker made obscene hand gestures and pulled in front of the motor home before braking suddenly Monday afternoon.

CHP Officer Terry Uhrich says the 68-year-old motor home driver was traveling about 55 mph in the southbound lanes in Camarillo and couldn't avoid slamming into the bike.

The 57-year-old Ventura biker, whose name is being withheld, was thrown under the motor home and dragged about 75 feet before coming loose in travel lanes.

just remember in cases like this the person who lives gets to tell the story...

(e.g. also known as the victor writes the history)
