  • I am looking for any info on the burgundy colored motorcycle that was lane splitting while we sat in traffic today. They side swiped my car and drove off.

  • Another one greasy side up.

  • People traveling on 101 need to start paying attention. It seems like accidents once a day, middle of the day, people are, crashing, rolling, colliding etc. Wth are people doing?????

      Whatever they want, just like on the couch at home. Just fly down the road at 65 or better oblivious to safety and other people. Clear, dry weather, who cares. As long as they don’t take other cars with them, it’s natural selection, Darwin at work. Die now and save others.
