    Not good weather for any biker, very sad!

      and the way some people drive their cars is not making it much safer for us either. having said that some bikers dont think while driving either

      it would be safe if everyone just followed the rules to a T, but solid lines mean nothing now days, red signal light means 3 okes are still gonna jump it, stop is the new yield. sudden stopping and gooing a u turn on a busy road in traffic is one of my favorites, or when the guy in the lane next to me has to brake suddenly and decides my lane is the safest place to swerve into to avoid a bumper bash, when i could easily plough into them at over 60, everyone is guilty, men and women, all race and ages

    Ban bikes in our national roads if ppl are recklss..RIP MAN

      John - 2012-06-07 13:39

      Its not a national road, nothing says he was reckless and bikes go a long way to reducing congestion. In fact national and open roads are the safest riding places for bikers.

      Willem - 2012-06-08 08:42

      Maybe then they will ban cliffs!!!!

  • Shaun Homani - 2012-06-08 07:13

    They are very reckless, negligent. I support the ban. R.I.P

      Willem - 2012-06-08 08:44

      Janine, look at his pic, he wont answer!!!!!

  • Bronwyn - 2012-06-08 10:15

    The article did not give too many details about about what happened, so it is a bit unfair to assume he was reckless or negligent. I have ridden a motorcycle as have other family members, and you can actually fall off without being reckless. As a car driver,I have never been nearly been take out by a biker...but by things with 4 wheels or more...plenty of times.

  • Margaux - 2012-06-08 10:26

    condolences to the family. banning bikes wont solve anything. if u want to ban bikes then u might as well ban all vehicles too. lets go back to horse and cart. way cheaper... btw alot of the bikers speed and show off, not saying all of them are wreckless. just my two cents.

  • tash.vanz - 2012-10-18 14:27

    None of you knew the man or the details of the accident!! Rip!!! You will be missed! Hoooo Haaaaa!!! :-(
