Why is it important to identify the brand of the car, but not the brand of the motorcycle? Sounds like the motorcyclist lost control of his vehicle and the car driver did nothing wrong.

When I lose control on a left curve momentum usually carries me off the right side, not into oncoming traffic.

Interesting semantics that a man "rides" a motorcycle, but "drives" an automobile.

Do the cafe racers still meet up at Alice's Restaurant on Saturday and Sunday morning?

Brings back memories of my misspent youth.
