Brother killed yesterday on MC

I was notified yesterday that my middle brother in Phoenix,had been killed that morning while commuting to work on his bike.
I'll be leaving for Arizona tomorrow.
All you 2-wheelers be especially vigilant when riding.

Sorry to hear that Phil, that sucks.

If it was the one on I-17 then it sounds like he was hit by a car, so lets ask the 4 wheelers to be careful too (and put down the cell phone and pay attention to the road).

Sincere condolences...
I've also ridden a bike for a short while here in city traffic and stopped doing that after a few near misses and one driver's door I slammed against...anyway "lucky" for me that bicycle got stolen soon after that. I know it's risky but so is driving and lots of other things. I'm sure your brother is in a better place now...
