Two bikes flew around me on a double yellow line just yesterday…they are headed for disaster….the roads are way to crowded and moving way to fast to get on a two wheeler these days….

RIP, sad. I watch a motorcyclist die last year after hitting a small truck. Any accident over 25mph in a motorcycle can be lethal. Be careful out there two wheelers
