  1. Hope he makes it. Unfortunately people see a motorcycle and for some reason try to cut them off or just be plain dumb around them. It’s like they can’t stand someone being cooler than them.

    1. I see far more motorcyclists weaving in and out of traffic, speeding between cars in adjacent lanes, just plain stupidity than I do cars cutting off motorcycles.
