    Crazy! Even when you are doing everything right, you never know what might happen.

    It was his day bro. Intersections give me creeps. Betya TMF was texting. Both, even the cyclist situational awareness levels were down.

    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Sad event. Condolences to family and friends all around... Fortunately my wife says we can't live (or not live) by what 'might' happen; which is why when I have friends who go "My wife says it's far too dangerous to ride a motorcycle", I reply with my wife supports and rides with me. We take the "proper" precautions (i.e. don't be a dumbass) and live life to the fullest until our day comes...
