    Not paying a attention to brake in time cause the death of an innocent person.

      That and failure to maintain his vehicle. Probably has worn out tires, brakes or both. Saw a Honda Civic the other day with three donuts for tires and the idiot left the original tire on the front! Where do you get two space saver tires to use with the third?

    That road is covered with leaves this time of year and with all the rain we have had, I know for a fact that road is slick.

    It’s a simple accident that could happen anywhere, anytime. The reality is simple accidents are a big risk to a motorcycle. If you drive one you accept that risk.
