What really sucks is that there are plenty of people that agree with me somewhat at least but they have probably already been beaten down by the "PC goon squad" in the past so they are afraid to say anything. As far as the guy who "wouldn't feel sorry for him if he had died",I hope that you can somehow repair your karma because an extremely negative vibe like that one will surely come back to you and I'd imagine that it will be you the next SUV will claim...mark my words!
This reminds me of the story where a cop cut a guy on an unmodified RC51 a speeding ticket for doing over 200MPH!!! I guess that guy was guilty too huh? Also,believe it or not,when an 92 year old guy cut me off,thus was the demise of my '01 GSXR1k,the story got around that I was doing a wheelie, which I was not,the cop even called me and accused me of it but had no proof so he let it go. In fact when my '00 Hayabusa was destroyed by a buddy who rear ended me actually doing a wheelie. The cop was told by Harley riding bystanders that I also was doing a wheelie,which I was not,and I had to bring the guy who hit me and all the guys we were with us to court to prove I was innocent. For all we know,the guy may have done a wheelie previously,brought it down well before the intersection and was cut off. Ofcourse,all the witnesses could remember was that he was doing a wheelie. Heck,he might have only had the wheel a few inches off the ground for a couple of feet,if at all. You are all so quick to judge,I wonder who will say that you deserved to die just for getting on a "crotch rocket" in the first place!!??!! When did you get left in charge of who's a rider and who is not? I've been on the road legally for 25 years,maybe I've decided that YOU are not a real rider unless you've ridden at least 20 years,or can do a mile long wheelie(I can),or get within 20% of the top lap time at the local track(I can),or have owned over 10 bikes(I have),etc
. Maybe the guy was poor,or had just gotten the bike,who knows? Heck,maybe he just didn't have his paperwork on him at the time and produced it later.One wheel or two,the chick still pulled out in front of him and thus "failed to yield the right away" and deserved a ticket!
