Red Light reality check

For all who relax while riding. If it's green it doesn't mean it's safe!

Caution! Graphic video

Safe

Just had a duel death in Shreveport,La on Saturday. A couple on a new Harley tried to pass a car they were following in a No Pass Zone. The car turned left and the bike ran into it killing the man and wife. My son tried the same thing 10 years ago and lived thru the wreak. He destroyed my bike and turned the compact car over. You must keep your eyes peeled in all directions at all time.

That's exactly how one of my friends died. It doesn't pay to pass on the double yellow no matter how slow and fustrating it is to follow that cager.

The moral of the story is, don't trust anyone.. even if you do have the right of way. BTW, the scooter had a green light. The car ran a red.

So you can be right, but the problem in these cases is that you will be dead right.

Clips like these make me very angry! We all assume to take a reasonable risk while riding, but when people pay no attention to what they are doing... the risk factor becomes unreasonable.

I get mad first... then it scares the sh*t out of me...

How true. Words to live by.
That's F'ed up! Very scary. There's been lots of times when I was sitting at a light and it turned green and if I had just gone without looking I would've been roadkill because the A*^($# ran the red.

What drives me nuts is that the guy takes his sweet a$$ time getting out of his car... then goes back in for something, then decides he should maybe check on the dude he just smoked. AHHHH. I'M ANGRY!

I think he went back to take another hit off his crack pipe. A-holes like that really piss me off!
