Didn't know him but it's sad either way. R.I.P.

It gets pretty spooky when the bikes get close to me. Strangely enough it's usually the Harley riders and not the sport bikes. Harley riders seem to want to hug the center line when they are riding in formation. I have been buzzed a few times by sport bikes though. Kind of wakes you up when someone passes on the right shoulder on the back wheel when you don't expect it. I try to stay away from large hard objects that might hurt me while riding. Everyone else should do the same if they want to avoid flying rocks and truck parts. This driver is going to have to spend the rest of her life thinking about what it looks like when you run over someone. Everyone lost here.
