    That is the sort of riding you can only do when you are 20 (or thereabouts) and conceptions of death and disability are mere abstractions...

    And the vidclip I was actually looking for made that guy look like a newbie rider.

    I saw a motorcyclist make a right-hand turn from the left-lane this morning. He did it right in front of a delivery truck -- there's no way he could have missed seeing it -- it was huge. Idiot.

    And soon, "organ donor."

    Riders like this give the rest of us - including those of us who sometimes ride fast (but aren't shitheads about it) a bad name....

    The problem is that we will never be able to convince those dunkheads who insist they have only our best interests at heart that;

    a) Speed doesn't kill, the sudden instantaneous cessation of speed is what causes the damage.

    b) Inappropriate speed is the problem, not speed per se.

    c) It is the lunatic fringe, invoking b) and inviting a), that give the rest of us a 'bad' name.

    Despite 'pressing on' wherever conditions permit I have, somehow, managed to maintain a clean licence (Car and Bike) for 57 years. I will admit to having been stopped a few times in my youth but never got more than a ticking off by the Police Rider who stopped me. I soon learned that most of the 'pulls' were due to lack of observation on my part and frequent checking of the rear view mirrors rapidly became a part of my defensive riding and driving. Generally speaking, anyone who gets stopped and booked by a police vehicle that has tailed them for long enough to carry out a proper speed check deserves to be booked for lack of observation.
