YOU KNOW YOU SAID IT RIGHT...IT ISN'T YOU THAT IS OPERATING THE BIKE, ITS THE OTHER A**HOLES ON THE STREET THAT PULL RIGHT OUT OUT IN FRONT OF YOU OR PERPOSELY CUT YOU OFF. SOME JERK PULLED OUT INFRONT OF MY HUSBAND AND I GOING DOWN LAKE SHORE, WE WERE HALF WAY THROUGH THE INTERSECTIION WHEN THIS JERK PULLED OUT IN FRONT OF US! HE COULD'VE TURNED INTO THE CURB LANE BUT INSTEAD CAME ALL THE WAY OVER AND CUT US OFF. THANK GOD FOR MY HUSBANDS ABILITY TO CONTROL THE THE BIKE OR WE WOULD'VE HIT THE BACK DRIVER SIDE AND PASSANGER DOOR. WAKE UP YOU IDIOTS THE BIKERS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM!!!

Why are they not giving the name of the truck driver? What is the big secret??

And MawMa, I agree. People should look twice before pulling out. As a fellow motorcycle rider. I ahve had to learn how to watch out for moron who can see a big blue Harley Ultra Classic coming at them.

For once an innocent person was not killed or injured in senseless police chases, thank good it was a motorcycle and the innocent person had a big truck

I have been a biker for over 40 years and I have heard the same lame excuse for all of these years. " I didn't see him". The cagers are too busy talking, listening to the radio , talking on the cell or texting to pay attention. I have had several accidents and hundreds of close calls because of these morons. It's time to charge these people with something a little more serious than "failing to yield." I hope the officer makes a full recovery and I know he has the support of the community.

I hope and pray that he will quickly turn around, and make a complete recovery. Fox 8 your video isn't working. All I get is a commercial.

And STAY OFF OF THE CELL PHONES, AND WHATEVER ELSE ANYONE CAN THINK OF TO BE ON,LISTEN TO, OR LOOK AT! The only thing people NEED to be doing while they are behind the wheel is
1) Keep 2 hands on the wheel. Go by the face of the clock. If you are left handed. The left hand needs to be on the 12, and the right on the 3. If your right handed, reverse it. The right needs to be on the 12, and the left on the 9.
2) Look in all 4 different directions. TWICE!
3) Keep your eyes, and your mind on the road!
4) Be careful! If you mess up, the person getting hurt, or killed, could be you!
yea right

I hate seeing people drive using cell phones, but guess what, I have seen bikers on the phone to.
