Terrible crash in New Brunswick Canada.

Very sad, one dead and nine injured. I can't help but think that some of the injuries could have been avoided if the motorcyclists weren't riding so close together (as many do these days).

Sounds like also they got piled up starting to pass just as the truck was making a left into a campground?

I had similar mishap in Utah north of Vernal. Truck turned left with out checking to see if there was other traffic.
He had malfunctioning tail lights on the trailer too.
Seems that the cruiser crowd likes to do things en-mass including passing.
Our rag tag bunch leaves getting around other vehicles to the individual.

Some were Hells Angels and a few other clubs. The HA had some sort of bash near Ottawa recently. Hundreds of them. They toured around Parliament in Ottawa and were very polite, according to news reports.

Unfortunately, some cruiser clubs insist on riding side by side to look cool. Duh.

Sigh, you really can't fix stupid. I consider it riding in a group if my companion is still in sight.

" I consider it riding in a group if my companion is still in sight."

My passengers usually ride on the pillion, you carry your companion on the tank bag?
