IF HE CHOSE to drive a motorcycle WITHOUT a HELMET...he didn't value his life in my opinion. MOTORCYCLISTS are NOT considerate of OTHERS' ears OR do they drive SMART in my opinion....EXCELLENT @ V'ROOOOOOM ----and that's ALL. This is my opinion....I'm tired of being awakened nightly by my neighbor's v'room as well as green strobe lights!
