Never pick a fight with someone when you have no clue what they are capable of. You would think by 60 he would have learned that lesson.

Late 70's we used to spend Saturday mornings running up and down Ortega. There was a lot less traffic and the our worst fear was coming around a turn and finding rocks/gravel in the road. Of course our bike were less powerful and the brakes and suspension sucked by today's standards. These days, I have been across Ortega only a few times in the last five years. Always seems so busy and too many race car/bike pilots with far more advanced vehicles. Or, maybe I am just getting too old for that road. But I can certainly see an accident like this happening. Not that I can't see it on Santiago Canyon as well. RIP to those involved.

A rider was killed Sunday after he stood on his motorcycle during an illegal stunt on the 15 Freeway in Corona and tumbled onto the road, officials said.

Leslie Elliott, a 28-year-old Garden Grove resident, was pronounced dead at Corona Regional Medical Center, according to the Riverside County coroner’s bureau.

Elliott was one of 20 to 30 members of the motorcycle group, Ruthless Ryderz, who were riding on the northbound 15 Freeway near Weirick Road just before 10 a.m., according to the California Highway Patrol.

The group was causing traffic woes on the freeway as members slowed and blocked motorists so that riders “could perform illegal stunts on the freeway,” CHP Sgt. Nathan Baer said in a statement

Looking forward to watching the Kota video.

Ride on,

I went through there a few minutes before it happened. All I could think is I was glad no bikes were in the HOV lanes either north or south when it happened. That would have been ugly. I hope the pilot and passenger from the plane come through OK.

NBPD to focus on motorcycle safety Saturday

As part of our grant-funded Special Traffic Enforcement and Crash Prevention (STEP) activities, the Newport Beach Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on Saturday, June 24.

Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas that are frequented by motorcyclists and where recent traffic collisions have occurred, in an effort to reduce injuries. Education and enforcement will be targeted at drivers and motorcycle riders alike. The officers will be focused on specific offenses including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, driving on a suspended or revoked license, violations of motorcycle license endorsement, and any other dangerous activities.

Motorcycle fatalities have risen dramatically in California, showing a 28% increase over the decade low of 352 in 2010. In 2013, 453 motorcyclists lost their lives, marking the highest number of deaths in the previous five years. California collision data shows that the primary causes of motorcycle-involved collisions include speeding, unsafe turning, and driver/rider impairment due to drugs or alcohol.

During the past two years in the City of Newport Beach, 66 persons were injured in traffic collisions involving motorcycles, but none of these collisions involved a fatality. The Police Department remains dedicated to preventing traffic-related deaths and injuries.

Funding for these Safety Operations is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic and Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

And I am sure everyone knows about the $10 increase in registration fees to pay down CHP employee pension debt?

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-21/california-drivers-pay-up-for-underfunded-highway-patrol-pension

For those of you too young to remember, the CHP pensions were increased when the stock market was booming. Everyone "guaranteed" that the returns on investments would pay for the increase and it would never cost taxpayers a dime. Welcome to reality!! If it were only limited to CHP, it wouldn't be so bad, but that decision started a tidal wave of pension increases that have some cities in California on the brink of bankruptcy. Buckle up for more fee increases!

Increasing Visibility

In collisions with motorcyclists, drivers often say that they never saw the motorcycle. From ahead or behind, a motorcycle's outline is much smaller than a passenger vehicle's. Also, it is hard to see something you are not looking for, and most drivers are not looking for motorcycles. More likely, they are looking through the skinny, two-wheeled silhouette in search of vehicles that may pose a problem to them.

Even if a driver does see you coming, you are not necessarily safe. Smaller vehicles appear farther away and seem to be traveling slower than they actually are. It is common for drivers to pull out in front of motorcyclists, thinking they have plenty of time. Too often, they are wrong.

However, you can do many things to make it easier for others to recognize you and your motorcycle.

....

Headlight

The best way to help others see your motorcycle is to always keep the headlight and, if equipped, running lights on. A motorcycle with its light on is twice as likely to be noticed. Using your high beam during the day and at night increases the chances that oncoming drivers will see you. Use your high beam when it is legal and safe to do so. When it is foggy, use the low beam.

Subject :

   NBPD Announces Operation Focusing on Motorcycle Safety
Contact :   Jennifer Manzella, Press Information Officer    949-644-3662

As part of our grant-funded Special Traffic Enforcement and Crash Prevention (STEP) activities, the Newport Beach Police Department will be conducting a specialized Motorcycle Safety Enforcement Operation on Friday, December 9.

Extra officers will be on duty patrolling areas that are frequented by motorcyclists and where recent traffic collisions have occurred, in an effort to reduce injuries. Education and enforcement will be targeted at drivers and motorcycle riders alike. The officers will be focused on specific offenses including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, driving on a suspended or revoked license, violations of motorcycle license endorsement, and any other dangerous activities.

Motorcycle fatalities have risen dramatically in California, showing a 28% increase over the decade low of 352 in 2010. In 2013, 453 motorcyclists lost their lives, marking the highest number of deaths in the previous five years. California collision data shows that the primary causes of motorcycle-involved collisions include speeding, unsafe turning, and driver/rider impairment due to drugs or alcohol.

During the past two years in the City of Newport Beach, one person died and 91 others were injured in traffic collisions involving motorcycles. The Police Department remains dedicated to preventing traffic-related deaths and injuries. We encourage everyone on the road to stay alert and aware of your surroundings, especially when turning or changing lanes. Whether you are on two wheels – or on four – it’s your responsibility to safely share the road.

Safety tips for motorcycle riders: See and be seen

    Use your lane position to increase visibility; change lanes only when there is ample room
    Match your speed to surrounding traffic
    Always wear a DOT-compliant helmet and brightly-colored protective clothing
    Ride with lights on, even during daylight hours

Safety tips for drivers: Share the road

    Look twice for motorcyclists, especially when entering the roadway, turning, or changing lanes
    Remember that motorcyclists are allowed in HOV lanes, unless prohibited by signage

Funding for these Safety Operations is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic and Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
