    • none ya

      typical biker dope? what a a***hole. sounds to me like the 82 yr old that shouldnt have a license is at fault here. i guess you’d have to read the article to know this…. all you’re worried about is car after a guy just died. what a loser

      • a choice to be made

        typical biker dope has a point here. Any other vehicle besides “death on two wheels” and the driver probably walks away. Another genius riding a motorcycle… remorse here when you choose to ride a death machine.
