    Stuff like this leads me to believe that license requirements are not stringent enough...

    Completely unrelated.

    I'm willing to bet the driver of the accord was fed up with doing the speed limit and stupidly tried to pass all of the motorcycles. RIP to the riders... I'm surprised one of them didn't chase down the car to get a license plate.

    I was just reading this. Horrible, horrible accident.

    The worst part of it has to be the cesspool of assholes allowed to post the drivel that comprises 90% of the comments on the article. CNN is worse than Youtube now, and it's just a disgusting display of how the internet has enabled people to just be terrible to one another.

    Absolute shame.

    Do you think there is more to the story? Uncomfortable to bring up, but some of those Harley groups are notorious for blocking any attempts to pass them.


    There was an article in Sport Rider by a guy who was literally run off the road and badly injured. He named the club. A fellow on Stromtrooper wound up in a ditch for trying to pass a group on a multi-lane highway

    In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. Eisenhower 1961

    Not sure who you're referring to...

    ...but even the leader of the ride doesn't blame the driver who hit them.

    (Having said that...driving drunk is fucking bad. Period. And...there but for the.... back in the day.)
