If at first you don't succeed, chuck it all in and go for a ride!

Man the 405 was never a fun ride.

I'd hate for it to be my last :(

Google said it’s a double fatality...truck swerved into HOV lane and hit the Honda, he hit the center divider then got hit by a Jetta in the carpool lane...then a truck stopped to direct traffic and got rear ended by a 2nd rider who also died

It’s not safe out there guys...especially with the broken white carpool lane. Stay alert, be aware of your surroundings, slow down and look ahead.

May they ride in paradise

Edit: 3 crashes! One on 405 North a rider rear ended a semi on a separate occasion and also died

Unfortunately, I witnessed the aftermath of this event. My day has been completely shot. Not sure the circumstances, but 2 bikes impacted. Based on what I saw, both were deceased, prefer to keep the descriptive at that. Ride safe everyone.

From the OC Register article it sure sounded like a lot operator error on the motorcyclist. I don't have complete faith they got the facts straight. (For unknown reasons.) I have actually started discouraging people who see me ride into work everyday and think it's a great idea from getting bikes of their own. I tell them it's not for everyone and the learning curve can be very painful. I see some pretty sketchy riders out there sometimes.

I be sure to emphasize that it's as dangerous as you let it be. The less attention you pay and risks you take, the more likely it will end badly, and you have no shell to protect you.

I usually say something to the effect that "a long as I ride as though I'm invisible and everybody is trying to kill me its safe, or at least not that bad". Most say yeah you have fun, go away satisfied to take their car. Most know they are to lazy to be responsible for their own safety, a good thing as they shouldn't be on a bike.

it's not so much dangerous as it is unforgiving as I recall someone more eloquent than I am saying. Last guy I tried to curb his enthusiasm went ahead bought a Kawi 300cc and promptly crashed it on his maiden voyage. "The wind blew me off the road." That is the level of rider I am speaking to when I say, "not for everyone". I do encourage dirt riding instead to develop basic riding skills.
