This article is downright...er...cheery! NOT!

came back and deleted the article...too depressing...someone had a serious bias against motorcyclists.

Instead, have a good ride!

you see it everytime there is a national news story about a motorcycle accident

Motorcycles are dangerous

MC riders think they own the road

MC riders are reckless

motorcyles should be outlawed

I use to ride a motorcycle but I got scared one day and I sold it...

nothing new or intelligent :^)

That is the case with most news articles. And the only reason I asked for the link was to see to what depths a person will go to bash motorcycles & bikers.

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.

I ain't lost until the tank is empty!

So the author decided to write a few bullet points from an MSF class after telling you you're going to die and your family will be sad... Journalism at its finest...

@YamahaParExcellence

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.
