  1. Another very sad loss 🙁
    We can only speculate on how the accident happened, usually it appears that motorcyclists are not seen.
    Ride like you’re invisible…..please.

    1. I could say a lot of things to that….. Just because a drivers eyes are open doesn’t mean they SEE where their looking.
      Have a look at the overall road toll.
