Motorcyclists must have some kind of death wish. So reckless and stupid. Those guys who disturb the peace every Wednesday night...why can't the police do anything about that. They speed through town and wake everyone up. Every Wednesday night at around 10p.

Agree that they speed.....I had one zoom past me just at the same intersection this young man died. As he sped past, cutting me off, he gave me the middle finger ! This being said, a young man died, and on this Thanksgiving Day, we can only imagine what his family is suffering. Prayers for them.

Drivers also need to be more aware of motorcyclist. Most drivers pay no attention to anything around them and end up cutting motorcyclists off without even realizing it. The only safe place for a motorcycle is in front and away from cars. Most motorcyclist deaths and injuries are actually caused by (auto) driver error, not reckless riding from the motorcyclist. In fact the majority of riders have had more professional training on handling their motorcycle and traffic than drivers do their entire lives. So please take a moment to swing that pendulum back in your own court. Loud pipes save lives, sorry it bothers you, but without that noise motorcyclists would be just a whisper in the wind for which no one would ever pay attention to. Also this article does nothing to describe the accident, however from the looks of the provided photo a car is in a drive way. Are we just to automatically assume it was the motorcyclists fault and not a driver making a rash decision to turn into their drive way and hit the rider?
