    Where was race mentioned in this article? Sober up and do something positive today besides being a lunatic.

    Just amazes me the number of drivers out there who just see right through motorcyclists, like they’re not even there.

      Since we don’t know all the facts let’s not rush to judgement. Anyone who has been a licensed driver for more than 10 years has probably observed some motorcyclists driving recklessly.

        And motorcyclist have seen their number of drivers not paying attention when making a left turn! Motorcycles are harder to see, so take a second look. If you take a basic riders class, you will have a different perspective of the road! Rip riders!

        There is reports that these two bikers were racing going 100 + mph.If that is the case the driver of the truck didn’t know the speed they were going and thought he had time to cross. Tragic accident, and if they were racing I don’t think the driver of the truck should be blamed, but I will wait until the investigation is complete and the facts revealed.

        So does that justify my brothers death? Cause of what someone else has done? That’s a poor comment #BikersLivesMatter

    First off they were not racing just out for a ride enjoying what they loved to do both was expecting fathers and good guys would help anybody its disrespectful to the family and friends and loved ones people in cars need to watch out for these bikes …and further more loud pipes saves lives that driver couldn’t help but to hear them but drivers always think they can beat the bike which is always a bad idea.

    Jimmy sorry to disappoint you I mean I have nothing for the liberals, but in most instances a helmet Isn’t going to save us anyway. Personally I feel that I hear and see better without one. I carry plenty of insurance and since I’m old enough to serve in the military why can’t I decide? I really don’t need my government as a babysitter. Vehicles/cages turning left in front of us accounts for half of all bike related fatalities. These aren’taccidents . They are caused by carelessness and inattention. I’m truly sorry their families and loved ones. MLH&R

    Looks like MPD is going to file homicide charges.If they weren’t racing how does the second bike end up a block away ? Smashed into a fence and couldn’t stop for a city block ? Article says they were at a high rate of speed, = racing . I am sorry for the families loss, but I don’t see how hanging a 21 year old kid is the right thing to do.
