Another Careless Cage that has taken two lives and I am sure he won't be charged... But if it were a police motorcycle, God help him, they would have thrown him under the jail! How about prosecuting some of these A$$H&*(& and maybe people would actually STOP at a stop sign and look BOTH ways!

My 38 yr old brother died on his motorcycle several years ago. He was wearing his helmet. I expressed the opinion to an EMT that I wished he'd been in a better one. The guy said it wouldn't have helped due to the speed he was traveling when he catapulted off and slammed into a tree...

Helmets aren't everything.

HELMETS are just BRAIN BUCKETES
to hold your brains in place. Your chances of surviving a motorcycle accident are very low and that should be considered before buying one. The general public have no regard to us on the road so you have to be extra careful, no drinking and riding!!!

I think the bigger issue is educating the driver of the passenger vehicle that they don't own the road.

It used to be against the law in Florida to ride w/o a helmet....they may not be full-proof, but they definitly can make a difference. My son was in a head on with a car....thank God he was wearing one. The helmet cracked when his head hit the pavement.He got away with a slight concusion...not to mention a cracked hip & crushed vert.
