Default A reminder to be safe everyone

This just happened this morning,

Motorcycle driver killed in collision with bus in north Edmonton - Edmonton | Globalnews.ca

My guess is the bus did not see the motorcyclist or the motorcyclist was driving to fast and tried to go around the bus on the right side and the bus changed lanes into him. Either way remember when passing large vehicles be aware as they have awful blind spots and often cant see us on bikes.

Turns out the driver of the bike was driving very fast and hit the back of the bus as the bus was slowing to turn. No skid marks on the ground to indicate the bike tried to slow or stop... not good.

Had 2 test pilots doing the same thing on the way home last night from work... at 2330hrs!! Heavy traffic, lane splitting, and they passed me like I was sitting still. It's that time of year. They get out on their sport bikes with way too much speed until one of them Darwins themselves, and they realize "Oh shit, we aren't invincible"
