    And in the same time how many motorcyclists were killed by drivers? How many fatal car accidents have there been? How many Drunk drivers have killed people?

    You seem to have an issue with ALL bikers assuming they all ride like you have professed you did. They don't, some do, but most do not. You keep referring to the bikes from Japan, I ride a bike from Japan and Honda 1300. I COULD do 120+ on it but I don't been up to 80 a few times in Utah where that is the speed limit, or to pass a car.

    The issue isn't the bike, but the attitude of the person riding it. And if they are on a bike or a car, they will have the SAME attitude. On a bike they just kill themselves and who ever is dumb enough to ride with them, in a car they can kill other people.

    Had a friend who was a responsible driver recently nearly killed cause the DRIVER behind him was more interested in texting than driving. Are there bad motorcyclists, of course. There are a LOT more bad drivers.

    Paglia, evidently you don`t listen to the 10:00 or 11:00 news. It happened again, another biker was killed last night, though it didn`t make the papers this morning. Again riding over their head? On my way to Modesto this morning, 3 or more motors went by me at least 80 MPH weaving in and out of traffic. Maybe old guys on Harley s ride the way you describe, but not the bikes from Japan, it`s their way or no way. Oh, buy the way, that biker woke up dead under a car, and you want cars to look for bikes, it`s a two way street, the biker always looses. You state real bikers ride responsibly, evidently there are not many of them around.

    Yup, and when I run across those articles I post them on my FB wall and implore all my fellow drivers to share the article. Speed on a motorcycle will kill. I have had street bike racers tell me that they need less than 100 yards to stop when they are doing 150+ mph. Oblivious to the facts I present about reaction time and such. As for the helmet, it is a simple code, All the gear, all the time. I would rather be uncomfortable in my full face than dead in something less.

    REAL bikers ride responsibly.

    THIS accident was cause by a vehicle with a driver driving distracted. An all too common occurrence. I put more miles a week on my bicycle than my car and I see a LOT of distracted drivers out there, see drivers going way over the speed limits, and in general drivers who put everyone else on the road at risk.

    The issue I was addressing is the legal in California idea of lane splitting at low speeds. Another Legal in California I have only seen done a couple times, only had to do once my self was a left turn at a light cause the sensor isn't picking up the bike. As long as it is clear and no hindrance to on coming traffic, motorcyclists can do it.

    Paglia: Evidently you don`t get around much, over the last couple of weeks, 3-4 riders at last count have died due to excess speed and riding over their heads. The lastest was yesterday when rider, riding a Harely died due to riding off the road, a few to many beers and using a "bennie" helmet, which are totally useless. Then in Sacramento county, one rider killed and the other badly hurt as they were street racing and hit a car, the crash indicated a skid mark of perhaps 50` or more, meaning the rider attempted to stop with his rear break, evidently he was not aware that there is more stopping power with the front break, rather than the rear break. You claim some people get angry at motorcycles that pass you at stop lights so they don`t have to wait in line, get in line with the rest of the cars, are you special? Riders have the responability of watching for cars, same as cars have the same responability watching for cycles, however with motors going so fast it difficult to see them coming, its a two way street. Courtesy, most all riders are long gone when possable, remember someone new to a motor that will go 150MPH has no idea how to ride. A professional rider wouldn`t be caught riding on the street, to dangerous.

    Please remember this next time you get angry at a motorcycle passing you at a stop light. Most of bikers that do this are trying to avoid this situation. Two or three vehicles in and a biker could be killed in a collision like this.

    And yes I do also acknowledge that there are some bikers out there that do it just so they don't have to wait in line. But who cares if it keeps them safer and doesn't affect you in any way. I have started waving bikers ahead of me at stop lights as a courtesy.
