No, not me.

The bike was a Honda and it might have been a Repsol but it had black wheels.

Maybe this should be forwarded to Judy Clibborn, so she may understand that if filtering was legal, this young man would probably still be alive.

Sad news......

Looking at the damage on the car it doesn't look like he slowed down much before hitting the bike.
