If and fact the guy was going 160 he might not have fared any better in a car. You hear of fatal accidents with cars in the city limits at city speed limits here all the time. People are just getting stupid.
What annoyed me we this lady's attitude in the article. She was extremely arrogant. Posting some stats the riding is dangerous, does not give her the right act as such a vapid twit.
And the "counterpoint " was also written with arrogance.
The best part of the article was the comment section.
