Right! And because of the few morons on speeding bikes many no longer respect motorcyclists. Many think bikers are the bad guys and deserving of their crashes.

Not all bikers speed, and I do notice that it is more of the cars fault then bikers fault. This is coming from some one who rides. I'll be driving down the road doing the speed limit and someone will change lanes into my lane right in front of me or almost into me, and then I either have to hit the breaks or gun it to not end up becoming road kill. All the times I've come close to getting hit I think I've only caused one time out of many! Cars need to be more aware of motorcycles!

I stand by what I said. If more people respected bikes, there would be fewer crashes. I said "few morons".

I don't understand. Do you mean you carry a gun while riding as a passenger in a car, or you carry a gun while riding on a bike? Either way, you are an idiot for carrying a gun, if you are not attached to law enforcement. You are the type we are trying to get off the streets.

Doesn't anyone appreciate sarcastic humor anymore? Lighten up Francis! Not everything you read is meant to be taken seriously.

Unless it's on 'THE INTERNET' of course.

The acura did not hit the motorcycle head on. This was clearly the motorcyclists fault. I know.. because it happened right outside my work.

my little brother is the girls age that was hurt and goes to BHS, I just hope shes okay thats all! I know what it feels like to want to protect kids that age! I couldnt imagine if that was him who was injured. That is a horrible intersection, and even in a car, i can remember multiple close calls.

It was the idiot on the bike who caused that accident, he shouldnt have been in berlin with some little girl, we have enough morons riding bikes, if they want to kill them selves fine, just dont ride with passengers!

Extremely defensive is the only way to ride a motorcycle. Otherwise, expect to have an accident.

I find it is the idiots in cages trying to run me down..I almost was ran into the other day on RT72 some idiot young driver switching lanes without looking or signaling...I pulled up along side the guy and gave him a WTF and he flips me off...I got in front of him but the only thing I had to throw at his car was my cel phone..His lucky I didn't have the time to follow his ass and kick the shit out of him once he got off the highway..I think Todd has the right idea..And besides I hate stupid people,I have no use for them...

As far as this accident...Sorry to hear about the passenger and hope she is doing all right..And if the driver was unlicensed and ran the light I really have no sympathy for the young idiot..Though I'm a biker and hate seeing anyone go down..Taking out someone's child on a bike without being properly licensed is unexcusable...I don't care if this guy was Valentino Rossi himself..Without the proper license he had no right riding some poor girl on the back...The end results prove my point.
