Dude.. Holy f*ck Will.. I never knew a Denali could cause so much damage, at 55 no less. I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope you and your family are doing well now. And the Denali driver was very kinda to spend the last moments with her.
Unfortunately much like some kids in there Civics, trying to show off, or be cool, some motorcyclists act the same way. Now I'm not saying all are like that, I'm sure that are a respectful and curtious rider, Cobaltinator. But there has been more than once I've been on a freeway cruisin' along with traffic at 75+ thinkin' "Hot damn! Traffic is just movin' today!" and out of no where a bike comes rippin' by weavin in and out of traffic at 95 to 100, and my heart skips a beat and wave of fear washes through me as I stop and god "Shit, I was just about to change lanes and pass the dude in front of me! That guy woulda been f*cked!!'
Some bikers like to take advantage of the fact that they are small and can maneuver in and out of places, but they also don't realize that other people in other vehicles don't always pay attention as well as they should. Even though it's plastered all over DMV walls or DMV driver manuals and tests.
Bikes are good fun and all, and I do my best to stay clear of them but sometimes you just miss things, some bikers just need to exercise more common sense while they're riding, same as some drivers should do so as well.
For those who have lost friends, loved ones and other due to drivers not paying attention, I'm sorry for your losses.
