    Motorcycles are inherently dangerous. You ride one, you take your chances. And as a friend of mine says, I’ll start seeing them when I stop hearing them. There is no reason they have to be that loud. Sad? No. Just a reality check.

      LOL! While I agree with how loud some motorcycles are I think I hear more super loud cars than I do motorcycles.

      Poor sight perception? Good question, how did he miss a headlight coming at him?!

      Idk, but I believe that above a certain age all people should have eyes tested every 2 – 4 years to avoid situations like this. Several years ago I had my car hit by a woman with super thick glasses and yelled at her asking how she could hit a bright red car (worse, less than a year old) while backing up and she didn’t hear me at all. Police hauled her in for testing and she had her license yanked.

          Good question. I suppose information for medical field on when reaction time will become evident is a good start. I’m nearing 60 and not opposed to the age being 60 for testing and re-licensing set to say every 2 years until the age of 70 then every year.
