    As the motorcycle overturned? How about having someone who has ridden a motorcycle write these reports?

      Because they die first or aren’t smart enough to write a meaningful sentence.

      Motorcyclists are 35 times more likely to experience a deadly accident on the road than those in passenger cars. Enjoy that thrill ride your life was worth it.

        Just did 1,000 beautiful miles in 4 days over Memorial Day weekend. Survived! Whew! Good thing I’m not an extreme pussy! Makes for a good day! I LOVE MY HARLEY!!!!!

          And I bet we can hear you 3 miles away too, and you call me the puss. LOL It’s cool we won’t miss you or your exhaust.

            That exhaust that bothers you for 15 seconds could’ve saved an accident countless times because a human sence, hearing, caused someone who wasn’t looking to look. Ya know, common sence is a super power. Loud pipes save lives. Think about it. I don’t care if it bothers you. That part makes me smile, and really pull the throttle! I have 144,000 miles on my loud Harley. I can’t tell you how many times those loud pipes caused a positive reaction to the driver that I can see, but doesn’t see me. If a bike sounds like your sewing machine, I believe you’re more likely to take a needless hit to the shins.

            You just keep sewing, and I’ll wrap my pipes and wave as I go by.

        Congratulations RideOn, your meaningless post doesn’t address my comment at all. Obviously time for you to take a basic reading comprehension class.
