    I feel terrible for the people. I always respect bikers and give them plenty of room, as if they were a full size vehicle. But lately I have noticed a lot of them not respecting traffic laws. This whole summer all I experienced were bikers acting very recklessly, driving between lanes between cars, speeding WAY to fast, running lights and cutting people off. I just pray the person who survived is ok. Super terrible to hear this.

    Mel,
    Were they on Harley’s? So sad to hear of anyone dying on his bike. Been on bikes since 1964. I see these fruitcakes on there “donor cycles” Kids doing 90 on the freeway. I hope and pray for the deceased fellow that he was just riding and someone f–ked up in front of him.
