Wow. That's disgustingly funny/entertaining, and at the same time, informative and engaging! It's a perfect advertisement!

Thanks for posting, Bryan.

They were all wearing dark colors. If motorcycle wore brighter clothing some of those accidents may have been avoided. There have been days when i've almost overlooked a dark colored rider(sometimes they blend in or come out of nowhere).
I'm not saying they should be forced to, but it might be a safer option.

I've been cut off in orange plenty (with my bike painted dayglo orange too). There should be a lot less people being given licenses. Ride a bike for a while if you think I'm kidding.

I was not saying that would fix the problem. I was saying it wouldn't hurt to be as visible as possible. There will always be bad drivers out there!

The message here is for drivers to be careful. If you ever rode you would not be making excuses for cagers and detracting from the main message.
