OK, MY BAD.......... Two articles in one day about trees killing people. I was wrong in thinking it was the "speed bumps". Must be the trees! Let's ban all trees.

I totally agree with Bob. I ride a Harley and I think that nobody should booze and cruise because most of the time they hurt more people than just themselves. This guy was lucky to not be in a cage and end up hitting a car load of innocent children. I wish that I had a dime for everytime a distracted cager almost hit me on my bike, I would be richer than Bill Gates! To call " em' donorcycles" is just plain ignorant and backward @$$, jerk!

Whether a motorcycle or car, people who mix drinking and driving are an accident waiting to happen. When will people realize the two are a bad mix?!

JOHN, REMEMBER THAT MOST ACCIDENTS ARE CAUSED BY IDIOT CAGERS LIKE YOURSELF - YOU CAUSE THE "DONORS",ass****
Sorry that you all took my comment the wrong way. I actually do alot to save the lives of you guys. Motorcycles are dangerous. That's my point. I see many many brain injuries and deaths that are a result of trauma while on a motorcycle. That is all.

I used to ride (sadly not a Harley) and I finally came to the conclusion that watching out for every motorist who did not see me, cut me off, tailgated me, tried to crowd me, changed lanes without looking, etc. was taking all the fun out of it because it was tiring me out and making me tense. That was before cellphones and blackberries and all the other distracting cr@p people do when they drive now.

<quoted text>John, I can live with that. Sorry for the attack. Motorcyclists seem to be grouped in a "second class" of people, and cars just don't look for them. However, if each bike had a child on it as well, would the brainless soccer moms have a little different attitude when it came to looking for someone else? Just wondering....
Good point Bob!

I wasn't trying yo offend you at all. I think that as drivers we need to be aware of everyone that is around us at every second. Any time you are in a vehicle of any kind you need to be paying attention. People need to be educated about a motorcycles ability to stop and manuver fast. Regardless of cause/fault, motorcycles to produce many organs for donation. Sad, yes, but true.

You have a good point too, John.

A dear friend of mine died when he was 19 in a motorcycle accident. A motorist wasnt paying attention and switched lanes at nearly 50 MPH and hit him. He went flying about 30 yards and died on Impact (even though he was wearing a helmet). He donated his organs... and saved the life of a 12 year old girl in the process.

So yes, Motorcyclists do produce a good chunk of organ donations.... still wish it werent such a high number though...

Please tell me that "soccer mom" is defined as;
A person who is operating a motor vehicle as a secondary task and MAY OR MAY NOT be of the feminine gender.

No really, you'll thank me.
