  • Safe Rider!

    it looks like the truck pulled out from the lower Walmart entrance/exit in front of the motorcycle as it was going up taylor hill! Don’t be quick to blame the motorcyclist, most ride with care.

      From the times website: Witness Jamie Albert of Scranton had been heading north, toward Scranton, when the Harley-Davidson cafe racer-style motorcycle sped past on part of the road not laned for traffic, she said at the scene.

      The motorcycle then collided with the driver’s door, and the rider was forced partly underneath the truck.

      “He went right around me,” she said. “Then the motorcycle smashed into the truck. … He was going pretty fast.”

      Not so safe after all huh?

  • just obey the law

    I am getting real sick and tired of these motorcycles passing illegally, hot dogging, doing wheelies, and riding recklessly. But we are the ones who are supposed to look out for them, If they would ride responsibly and not recklessly a lot of these accidents would not happen.

      Agreed – not disagreeing with you – lots of MC riders ride like fools. However – if I had a dollar for every time I had to make evasive maneuvers because someone in a car or truck weren’t paying attention – i’d be going to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, and ordering an appetizer too.
