Maybe riding to Wyoming to see the Old West Museum in Laramie and then touring the snowy ridge would have been an even better idea.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but if a car turned left into a motorcycles path, and the motorcycle hit the driver's side door, wouldn't that indicate that the motorcyclist was maybe picking a real lousy time to pass? I know it's usually the car's fault when bikes get hit, but having made some bonehead passes myself over the years, I have to wonder if this isn't one where the bike was at fault.

I think it means the cars were turning left accross the road, at an intersection. Ie.. coming from the biker's right and turning onto the same road (but opposite direction) as the biker. (car is heading East, but turning to head North at the intersection, crossing the path of the southbound biker)

Nah, standing around getting drunk wearing a H-D of Laramie shirt is way more fun.

No real stats here, but there is a 90% chance the helmets were "novelty" beanie helmets if they had them on.

Except for the fact that HD of Laramie also sells *gasp* Hondas!

Honda owns Harley so it's all the same.

Yeah, nothing more frightening that a large group of Pi$$ed off podiatrists and stock brokers.
