How sad. I can't imagine how bad the passerby's that stopped felt. Years ago, my son was in the minivan with his dad and step mom. They were driving on a curvy road, a man and his son came around the corner on motorcycles, and the son was in the lane of oncoming traffic. He slammed into the minivan and flew into the windshield. My ex works in the E.R. as an EMT. He gave the guy mouth to mouth, but he took his last breath within a matter of seconds. I couldn't imagine dealing with that.

Good to hear that people actually stopped to render aid. I hear and read all to many stories of people just walking or driving by ignoring someones plight. The guy that died on the sidewalk with people just walking by him in New York after trying to stop some knive wielding thief comes to mind.

Maybe some rubble in the road. I see lots of it all over. Usually dropped by various ramshackle trucks and pickups hauling junk. The CHP probably isn't too keen to clear the junk off -- a CHP officer just got killed not long ago trying to do just that.

Another reason why riding a motorcycle is not entirely smart.

Why do you think ER staff call them Donorcycles?

I feel sad reading about things like this, and my heart goes out to family and friends. But a note to webmasters out there who design these pages: Do we really have to put up with annoying disrespectful pop-up ads when we're reading about a person losing their life? It's tacky and insensitive and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Dude, leave the boy alone! His uncle just died, he's obviously a teenager, and he's writing how people text. Jesus!! Did you really have to make such a stupid comment?????

If this state had MUCH more stringent driving requirements, motorcycles and small light automobiles would not be nearly so dangerous.
If the crooks in our legislature spent the taxes collected to fix our roads on FIXING OUR ROADS, hazardous driving would be greatly reduced.

We could be driving both green and safe IF this state made responsible and competent driving a priority.

My thoughts and prayers go this family. I met John when I worked as a security guard for chevron refinery. He always made me laugh and always had such great humour about everything...... I didnt see him again when I left, but by the grace of god I became friends with his sister when she started working with me..... He will be greatly missed and I know how much he loved that bike ( rose) .....again my thoughts and prayers are with u all.. rest in peace my dear friend...
