    Wear your safety gear!! Just in case...
    1st John 1:9
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 3:17
    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    However horrible this incident is, motorcycle riders share responsibility to ride safely. The driver of the car should be prosecuted for manslaughter or something. And the motorcycle rider should be prosecuted for wreckless driving, passing in a no passing zone, and wreckless endangerment. Borneo???

    I have a hard time believing that wasn't intentional.

    In my opinion, the driver of the car should be charged and tried for attempted murder.
    I see people around here doing that sort of crap all the time; playing games on the road to intimidate other drivers: games that can and do get people killed.

    While I agree strongly that the car driver should be charged, I still feel that we, as motorcycle riders, have a responsibility to obey the same laws that other drivers are required to obey. The wreckless endangerment the motorcycle operator is guilty of is to his girlfriend on the back with him. And yes, the Marquis operator is a total ass for deliberately trying to cause the motorcyclist to crash. And I'm not a lawyer either. I don't have one hundredth the experience that TWilight has. I just try to use common sense when that's what is necessary.

    Reading the story, the rider filming says the car driver slowed down to 20mph under the speed limit.
    There are driveways all along that road.
    A motorcycle rider should expect that at any time someone would pop out from a driveway, or turn onto a driveway from the road.

    The motorcycle driver had a passenger and a double yellow line and side driveways and a driver in front of him going 20mph under the speed limit. I know I sure would not have passed under those circumstances.

    Neither rider paid much attention to the crumpled up lady laying on the side of the road. She was the real victim.
