Brookhavenconfucius, I am well used to living with uneducated, uninformed people. Get Off My Lawn, you are lumping all motorcyclist together. You know nothing about these people! Your lack of caring is evident. I'll pray that your family never undergoes any tragic situation that is reported incorrectly by the media and that you have to deal with inconsiderate people such as yourself. No matter the situation, his wife or mother should never have to read nasty comments such as yours!
