From the comments:

These nuts on those crotch rockets, whizzing by, back and forth, in and out between cars....they make me CRAZY! I am terrified of this very thing happening....I feel so terrible for the poor person in the car that ran over him....I hit a pidgeon in the parking lot one day and I couldnt compose myself for almost an hour...if I ran over a human, they would have to institutionalize me....talk about PTSD.......that crazy jerk on that bike has really ruined that driver's psyche....hopefully not permanently. My sincerest sympathies go out to the family of the biker.....If that were my brother or son, it would make me so livid that he has brought such sorrow on the family, especially at this time of year. Of course, I would be angry at his stupidity, but the loss of my loved one would still render me inconsolable....that selfish jerk has ruined the holidays for many people




People, this is how we are viewed by the general public, and only we can change that view....

RIP to the rider.

if it takes you an hour to get over the shock of hitting a pidgeon... you are not fit to be controling a 2 ton moving object.

RIP to rider

RIP to the rider.
Ignorant people make me want to punch them in the face. He may have been speeding, he may have been moving in and out of traffic but every day I see the same behavior from cagers who account for more vehicles and crash same as anyone else. I passed 2 major accidents coming to work today involving cars on 610 on both sides of 45. Simply cause it was a motorcycle they have to trash the dead..

RIP Rider! I hope they have wide open roads and fast bikes in heaven..
