    Wait until the big bikes get here. The ambulance crew will surely have a lot of work to do.

      Who said the truck wasn’t the one in the wrong? Bikes are not always the problem, drivers also need to be aware! Just how we have bike accidents we have car accidents, should we stop cars from coming in too?

      @ Mr Premier: is it the bikes or the person riding that bike but you have very valid concern: there are people riding bikes in the territory and they exercise due care and attention while others act the fool in and out of traffic: I dont see why the law abiding folks should suffer for those who simply refuse to comply with our regulations:
      Maybe an increase of highway patrols

      The noise will be unbearable. I hope they live near him so he can suffer like the rest of us will.

    Sorry to hear this, but maybe defensive riding would have prevented this unfortunate event.

    Fuzzy logic. When only one type of rider is allowed to ride here on one type of motorcycle the answer is simple, we will get the same result. Every time.
