    1. On a motorcycle, no way, they’re always so safe and never weave in and out of traffic ever.

    2. Does it matter a mother lost her life smh that’s sad that’s all you have to say!! God rest her soul

      1. Nobody forced her to ride like a maniac like all motorcyclists do! No condolences here!

  1. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again……motorcyclists have zero respect for any traffic laws and zero respect for the power of a motorcycle

  2. “Those car drivers never look out for us motorcyclists…”
    Don’t drop the “mother lost her life” stuff either. If she was a mom, with kids/family that love her, need her, etc., maybe she should’ve taken the car instead.
