Maybe a "Look out for motorcycles" campaign would be a good idea prior to the event?

So maybe next year we'll meet somewhere else. Maybe a more cycle friendly location.

Interesting that there was no mention of helmets...

Since it's a Harley rally there's no point in wasting ink on the obvious.

Is that a comment about the helmets or the mentality of a Harley Rider?

They only fail to mention helmets when the riders are killed wearing them. It doesn't do their big brother cause any favors.

Can't see myself attending any rallys that expect more that 100k in any given location, anymore. Seems the locals in those spots tend to forget that hordes of bikers are in their towns bolstering their economy.

All three fatal wrecks involved bikers colliding with vehicles, with at least two of them caused by vehicles pulling into the bikes' paths, officials said.



Just curious, but I do wonder if the three that were killed were riders with many miles of experience, or riders fairly new to motorcycling.

As long as they don't turn into an angry mob they're helping the economy.
