  2. I think the judge will feel sympathy for the old lady and just give her a small fine and the biker goes home without his best riding partner. When the bikers take to the streets during bike week; the locals need to stay inside or use low velocity vehicles for trips. Our money more than pays for their two week inconvience.


    • Enter text right here!There are no words to express the deep emotion I feel for you. I was with my wife of 43 years and she was killed in a collision while we were riding. Not are fault, a 83 year old man ran a stop sign.

    • Unfortunately, never. And Florida is a state of horrible drivers. I used to live in Daytona. I lived up and down the east coast of Florida for years. Worst drivers ever. Old people with limited driving abilities. Illegals with NO driving abilities. Kids who don't care about their lack of driving abilities. Everyone runs red lights. 1/2 the people speed. The other half only drive 1/2 the speed limit which pisses everyone else off. The whole state is an accident waiting to happen EVERYDAY.
