Bad news! Condolences to the family, and to the truck driver.

So the rider merged onto the highway at the same time a semi was in the right lane? How do you miss a semi? DUI? What bike was he riding?

I don't get it. Regardless, sad news and god speed to the fallen comrade...

BTW, I almost kissed a Bambi this afternoon. Missed by a foot or two!

Ride Safe!

Glad you missed Bambi

It's just speculation right now - but police assume the rider did not expect the truck to be as long as it was, he merged into traffic not seeing the trailer .
Yeah - it's beyond me too -
