    Most of them probably were riding rice rockets. People are insane on those things.It is always a shame when anyone is hurt or killed on a motorcycle.Our world is changing every day,A lot more vehicles on the road, sport bikes are getting faster,and worst of all is: More and more horrible drivers out there with personal problems.

    Thanks,
