and she called me up and said "You arent getting a motorcycle." She was at an busy intersection waiting in the northbound lane for the lights to turn green. There was a big Fed Ex truck in the westbound lane making a left turn to go south and an older 4 door sedan in the eastbound lane turning left to go north. Well, any GOOD driver would wait until they are sure there arent any cars (or motorcycles) coming before they make the left turn. Apparently, the sedan decided that the way was clear (even though he couldnt see past the big ass Fed Ex truck) and went. And that is when the motorcyclist collides with the sedan. My wife approximates that the bike was going 35-40 mph. That is a pretty busy street so it is probably close to that. She said his bike was "destroyed" and that he hit the car and dropped limp. Apparently he wasn't wearing ANY gear. Just a t shirt and khakis. ( ) She said he wasn't moving at all for the 5 minutes she was there. Anyways, just wanted to share. Doesn't look like I'll be getting a bike anytime soon.
