If this was the fault of the car driver they should be charged and sent to prison

With the price of gas constantly going up I'm sure we'll see more and more motorcycleist's on the road. And as statistics have shown in the past, there will be more and more motorcycle accident's and unfortunatly the death's that are associated with them. Everyone please use extra care....

We're going to miss this guy terribly. No matter who's fault this accident was, it won't replace our friend. The only thing I can ask is that anyone that might have witnessed what happened to please come forward and help law enforcement figure out what happened. Please everyone, the weather is getting warmer and there will be a lot of bikers out, please make sure you look and look again if you have to before merging or pulling out into traffic, there might just be a biker there. RIP bro.

You could be the most careful person in the world on a motorcycle and it does not matter. People do not watch what they are doing and do not pay attention when they drive. I use to have a Harley, I could not tell you how many times I was cut off. They would pull in front of me or start turning into my lane without even looking. The wife made me sell when I was almost killed on it by a young female driver. She was on her CELL PHONE when she cliped the back of my bike. I lived but could not walk for 3 months. I bet the driver of the bike was cut off.

Everyone out there share the road with motorcycles. It may save the life of someone you know.

a few observations...

1) It sucks that he died, RIP
2) This was by no means the cars fault (someone in the car went to the hospital because of his carelessness)
3) I was 2-3 cars in front of the car he hit head-on and thankful that he missed me
4) He gunned the throttle, sped around traffic, easily going 15-20+ over speed limit on an uphill section of road, and his bike started to wobble violently
5) He ended up wiping out and (presumably) smacking head on into oncoming traffic (I did not see the actual impact in my rear view mirror)
6) No one cut him off or forced his aggressive driving
7) The only reason I was even watching my mirror was that I was expecting him to do a wheelie
8) He chose a very poor time on a busy road to be a showoff with his bike
9) Motorcycle drivers like him give the rest a bad reputation
10) Again, no disrespect .. just stating the facts
