I was almost hit twice by a black Ford SUV like this on my motorcycle in East moline a few week back. About 6.30 am going to work. Driving like a bat out of hell. People just dont watch for Motorcycles. The drive of the SUV had to have their seatbelts on. Rider of the motorcycle can have shorts and no shirt on and no helmet and thats A-ok. Whats wrong with that picture.

was he wearing a helmet? I really hope he was wearing one.But if not,i think if people driving cars are required to wear seatbelts then motorcylist should wear helmets.

@Angel, I am sick and tired of you people with the helmet thing. Shut your mouths and keep your opinion to yourself. A man just died and the first thing you say is "was he wearing a helmet". Bob was a good guy and all comments should be kept to condolences and heart felt I'm sorry for your loss. NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK. Have a nice day

And by the way just so there is no more talk about helmets, he passed away from chest and abdominal trauma. How's a helmet supposed to save you there?
