Well first. She's riding a Harley. And it just goes down hill from there.

it's bad juju to wish harm on a fellow biker...

...but I hope that a**hole ends up a greasy streak. That's ridiculous. The number of times I've almost had some doucher in a cage lane-change onto my head cuz they're dickin around with their damn phone would be impossible to count. He can cause just as much trouble for other bikers or someone in a cage by doing it himself. I literally just used all seven of George Carlin's seven words you can't say.

I honestly believe when a person texts and drives they are more incapacetated then the person who is drinking and drive. I'm almost positive there is a study somewhere that backs that theory up... I think I remember reading it.

Well, I don't ever wanna wish harm on someone else. I sure hope he lives a long and prosperous life and that type of attitude towards motorcycle safety (we can argue the safety gear / helmet crap all day long, but I don't think anyone can disagree that leaning back and texting while on the freeway is a poor attitude regarding safety) isn't always going to result in that. And, like others have already said, it does make us look bad. People will see that, and then not think twice about cutting me off or doing something stupid because they think "Well he's a motorcycle rider, he doesn't care about safety anyway". And yes, I've heard that before! I talked to a guy who literally told me he'll pull out in front of bikes or run them over if they get in his way, because "I'm bigger than they are and they don't care about safety anyway".

But, what can ya do! If we can't make texting illegal in cars, which are a significant threat to others on the road, it's gonna be a long time before THAT is illegal...
