If I were laying on the hood of a car. I would want Eric talking me through it and Matt working on me.

This guy wrecked in the right place.

Good Job Guys!

Our pastor was killed by a woman driver turning left. Should be mandatory after an accident with injurys that the driver be evaluated and re-certified to operate a vehicle.

Not all women are bad drivers. You just got to pay attention don't worry about getting to the shopping store so much.

Article comment by: The driver of what was cited for failure to yield?

The article doesn't give any names of participants in the accident, which is the Miner's choice. Publishing the article with little to no facts is also their choice, in fact, understandable in this instance. they have no information to share.
What I have a problem with is people who always seem to make comments about his own history with driving a bike a priority in his comments. The article isn't about YOU!
Bikers need to make their survival about THEM. You must drive defensively! As an automobile driver, I can't know you are driving in my blind spot (a favorite of bike riders) and if a motorcycle turns in front of me, which is what the article implies, but doesn't state, what the heck can I do but live with the remorse for serious injury or fatal consequences for being in the wrong place at the wrong time for the rest of my life?
Where are the signs cautioning BIKERS to SHARE THE ROAD? I see signs everywhere in town tell ME to 'share the road', but I've yet to see a sign telling bikers to 'share the road'! At some point, don't bikers realize their survival is in THEIR hands? Defensive driving, you are driving a vehicle with only two wheels! You have no back-up with extra wheels or outside protections in case the flesh or HEAD meets the road!

We had a truck driver turn left in front of us on our MC near Lake Tahoe years ago and we went down. We spent some time in a hospital. This scenario unfortunately is a very common occurence for MC riders. Luckily both the truck driver and I had the same Ins. Co. so it wasn't hard to settle our case.
