Obviously not being careful or just going way too fast.

Unfortunately there are a lot of 20-something male riders on "rice rockets" pushing it to the limit. I'd rather ride just a little bit slower and enjoy the ride and live to remember it.

I've been riding motorcycles for 45yrs. and commute to the Southbay everyday. One lesson I was taught when I was 15 years old was once you think you have a motorcycle whipped.....it's gomna whip you My two cents....
