Guaranteed these bikes were stolen and their riders were uninsured, unlicensed, and had warrants outstanding. You see these roving packs of thugs running up and down I-95 at 100+ mph, popping wheelies and endangering everyone. I'm glad this scum-bag died, and its too bad his buddy didn't follow him.

This is mostly Baltimore city's fault. These animals begin their rides there, thanks in part to the mayor's order to stop chasing unregistered vehicles in the city. As a result, you see packs of quads, dirt and sport bikes -- all stolen and often being ridden by juveniles-- terrorizing the city. They then head to the interstate to terrorize the rest of us. They should be shot on sight.

Oh, and I give it a day before the family of the deceased gets a lawyer and blames this on the cops, all the while crying crocodile tears and swearing up and down what a fine young man he was.

Its a shame that these bikers never learn lessons from these accidents. I had a group of bikes doing this same thing around my truck on RT 301 last weekend. I have NO sympathy for these fools. If you play with fire long enough, you will get burned.

Obviously you don't get out much. Next time you see a group of Harley riders, remember what you said about "motorcycle operators who were NOT recklessly speeding". And if you have the balls...pass that comment on to them.

This type of activity continues at a very dangerous level in the D.C. region. Unfortunately for this rider, they will not see another sunrise.
Until the regions judges start putting these idiots on a work-farm at hard labor; this foolishness will continue.
Some of them deserve 60-90 days at hard labor wearing a pink jumpsuit and literally doing very hard labor on the highways they so liberally ignor the laws set forth to protect them.
Or a Tiawanese Wet Green cane beating in public!
Either one will take a long time to recouperate from.

Well i was actually at the seen before it happened. I was on my way to laurel from randallstown and i saw them right after 195. It was about 6 or 7. I was doin atleast 75 and it looked like they were doing atleast 130. But when i got up to the spot where the accident occured i saw nothing but lights from the other cars. Then i pulled up further and all i saw was a lower half of a body in the fast lane and his bike was on the right shoulder. These bikes were not stolen, they were just being dumb and reckless and unfortunately someone lost there life. So instead of you wishing death on someone you should pray for their families and hope it doesnt happen to anyone else and especially to anyone you know. Im not sending this out of anger, Im just stating that if you had saw this you would feel the for the everyone that had to witness that. All the kids on the highway with their parents. People thats already scared of driving are now scared for life. So please everyone just be smart when driving or riding.

Spoken like a true "masshole"! While some of this individual's points are well founded, they don't necessarily make the case for all cyclists. Too much generalization here from a dope head!

I feel sympathy when it is a true accident. Playing Russian roulette and losing is not an accident. Going 130 on I-95 is not an accident either.

If you are reckless on the road with your life AND those around you... Tough. You get none from me.

Just another run-of-the-mill, organ donor. His body is worth more dead than alive, to medicine. Obviously, a darwin award winning.

The sad thing about this is that it won't be long until it happens again. They all think that they are too good for it to happen to them. How many have to die before you all get it through your head that public roads are not the place to ride like that? Had he been on a track and wiped out like that he would probably still be alive to ride another day but no he had to be stupid. Now for his "BUDDIES" that were a bunch of chicken s*** sob's and ran off, I hope that you all get yours sooner rather than later!!

You do stupid sh-t, you better be prepared to suffer the consequences of your actions.These "crotch rocket" types of bikes are dangerous weapons in the wrong hands. It is ashamed that they cannot be banned from the public roads.

Why should "crotch rockets" be banned from public roads? Your automobiles have the same capabilities of going up to unsafe speeds of 80+ mph but you don't see people banning automobiles.

Motorcycles have just the same capabilities of reaching unsafe speeds as your automobiles are. It's just up to the operator whether they want to be stupid and push it to those speeds.

Not every motorcycle rider rides like that, just as not every automobile driver drives like that.

It's a shame this person died but for recklessly speeding like that on a busy highway; they're just asking for something terrible to happen.

Man, motorcyclists like these really are stupid. They die needlessly for their reckless behavior. And really, I feel no sympathy for him. I feel bad for his family--as they lost the man and really don't have much left to bury.

What really gets me is the story seemed to imply that his 'friend's just continued driving on. Nice 'friends'.

I also feel really bad for the people that hit him. I can imagine how that must be affecting them. Obviously, they couldn't prevent it when a body is being propelled at their car, but I'm sure it has been disturbing for them, none the less.

However, not all motorcyclists ride like this. Most follow the rules of the road because they realize they could get killed!!!

Let me revise myself: I have never seen a CROTCHROCKET rider who was not recklessly speeding.

So, Scorp, keep your balls in your pants. That is, if you have any to keep in there. Don't take everything so personally. You must not get out much if you have to beef up your ego on a motorcycle.

I have to agree with scorp. More often than not it's the crotch-rocket crowd and NOT Harley riders who are speeding and weaving in and out of traffic erratically. In fact, I don't believe I've ever seen a Harley rider driving in this manner.

I would like to preface my previous comments by stating that I own and ride bikes. The vast majority of riders are law-abiding citizens who are often more responsible on the road than their cellphone using, texting, aggressively-driving cager counterparts. But the types of riders that behave as those in this article are outlaws. They are usually uninsured and unlicensed, and are riding stolen bikes. But even given that, I wouldn't really care what they do as long as they were only putting themselves at risk. However, they endanger everyone around them, and as such, they deserve to die. I have no sympathy for this idiot, and I only wish more of those who behaved like him came to the same end. Law enforcement is equally to blame, as they seem to refuse to enforce the law.
