Sad to hear of this tragic event. Motorcycles are only as safe as the riders who ride them, but sometimes even the riders have no control over deer, idiot car drivers, etc. Helmets are a big factor in reducing deaths, and I'd like to see Kansas instill a helmet law.

It was foggy that night. May not have detected the curve in time. It's marked with signs, though.
