Don't know about membership.

"motorcycles were traveling fast" what does that mean? If they were speeding say so, if not shut up. Why do they always make it sound like no matter what happened the rider must be at fault? Like saying black assailant or female victim. The Post should get a ton of emails blaming Dana Hedgpeth's reporting for canceled subscriptions. It seems to be the only way to get anything changed.

It's a crappy last story to tell about that rider.

RIP

lam: If the police reported that the motorcyclists were traveling fast, don't blame the reporter for writing it. Who knows, maybe that is the description the other motorcyclist used? Don't be so hard to judge. Hopefully there will be a follow up report when the police determine the cause of the accident.

RIP to the fallen rider.

RIP.

Reading the comments on the post article makes me sad. Not a single person had a comment other than to blame the rider. At least respect that it's a sad situation.

ALWAYS the case in motorcycle related incidents. Sad.

There was an interesting comment; "Regretably, you're right about the police being unable to catch them. An state police officer who spoke at a Harley event pointed out that people riding sports bikes (such as Ducatis) can run away from police cars, which are limited to 130--and they generally do that when they see lights or hear a siren. Makes you wonder about people who sell bikes that run 60 miles an hour or more above the speed limit."

How is it that a motorcycle shop is responsible for how folks ride their legally purchased motorcycle?

I saw that too. I they were referring to the Manufacturers not the shops, like: "How can manufacturers sell bikes that are not restricted?"

It doesn't bother me, but I have had this very same thought. The highest speed limit in the USA is like 80mph, yet most sportbikes can go 2x that speed...

It's not

Not all bikes run
Not all guns kill
Not all knives stab
Not all hammers smash people's skulls

see the pattern? People who do not ride hate bikes in general and the comments prove it.

They're not. However, personally I take it upon myself to try and educate young riders that come in to buy a bike. If it's your're first bike, I will not sell you a litre bike. It's not the law, but it's good ethics.

It's also good for business because you cannot build repeat business with dead people.

Haha, that is the most ignorant shit I've ever heard to justify the performance sacrifice someone made to buy a pure vanity bike. My cruiser does well over speed limit too, but I guess thats also a 'should be illegal bike' since his probably makes 20hp less despite the 500cc displacement advantage.

InsideNova posted an article about a 19yo kid who was killed driving the wrong way on 234? And all the comments were nothing but sorrow yet, if he was on a motorcycle they probably would have bashed him.
