5 Washington motorcyclists killed in separate crashes within 24 hours

Please be careful out there. One death was getting rammed from behind by a drunk driver and another was stopped on the side of I-5 and a drunk driver likely got target fixation and hit him.

Indeed, even over here in the rurals a rider was killed last week, going legal speed, sun was not an issue, and a truck turned left in front of him within only fractions of second. Probably on his cell phone. 51 yo guy died at scene just a few yards from where I turn into work every day. it's a jungle out there.

One death due to an SUV turning left in front of the rider, one death from the rider being rear-ended by a car, one death from the rider being hit by a drunk driver while on the side of the road working on his bike and two deaths when one rider failed to negotiate a curve, crossed the center line and hit another rider head on. All of these preventable. This just totally sucks.....

Stories like this are a big reason I am switching to full time track riding.

God bless America! Well, and Japan for making such an awesome bike! Anyone else start drooling about a modern 2 smoker would be like? DI or port injection, computer controlled oil (no smoke or fouling plugs) injection, lighter, more power. I had hopes KTM would go after it but nothing so far.
