    My prayers go out to Connie. I pray that whoever did this will come forward and fess up. It doesn't matter who hit her or with what, it is a bad thing, and this person needs to take responsibility for the injured.

    What are two things a Harley Davidson rider will never be caught wearing? A helmet and deodorant.

    I really don't believe the comments ppl are posting on here. When did our country start being so insensitive. This is another human being we are talking about. She is flesh and blood and has feelings and thoughts just as you and I do. I work with Ms. Connie and I know for a fact that she was in danger of loosing her life. Why would anyone post comment o a joking matter about this situation. What if that was your sister or daughter or wife or friend. What if that was you? Remember that once it's said you can't take it back and you once it's in the universe karma starts it's process wether good or bad. I ask that you part for Ms. Connie and her family. She is a wonderful person and a hard worker and I pray she had a speedy recovery. I pray her family makes it through this ordeal knowing ppl say things anomously because they are cowards and those who truly mean well are parting for you and we wish you and your family the understanding that only God can provide.
    All o you with ur Harly jokes and your negative comments I hope you are prepared cash karma is a mofo...

    I was on a two lane road turning left. There was a truck coming the other way wanting to turn left. He proceedeed and I proceeded. There was a motorcycle behind the other truck turning left. The motorcycle came around the truck on the right hand side and hit my rear quarter panel of my truck. I was written a citation for failure to yield. Also, the cyclists was injured and I lost my license for 3 months in the state of Florida. Also, I had to appear in court and pay a fine and WAS not told I would lose my license. So be very careful driving.

    almost Every single comment is negative on here except for a selective few. Just stop and think about what if it was you or your mom or dad??? A injury is a injury whether small or big. Just Pray about her getting better and recovering instead of insinuating about a incident that you dont have all the facts 2. the news obviously doesnt know everything so stop believing it. WE love you Connie!!! Get better soon

    Probably the work of another nasty tatooed Harley rider. "I can't afford a dentist but I can afford a twenty thousand dollar motorcycle".

      I am not nasty! I have a job, a house, kids! People need to quit being stereotypical! One thing about Harley riders is they are "family" they take of one another where you others will stab each other in the back!!
  • by i was there leaving wallmart going home Location: fl on Jan 3, 2012 at 03:46 PM
    i seen the person lieing in the is a busy road and idiots drive fast there. the only thing that i see the biker done wrong was not stop for whatever the reason was. it was dark and with lights hitting you in the eyes from other cars. you cant see good at night on a bike with passing cars. the person that got hit was not fast enough to cross in time.

    Although it sounds like an aging dim-wit on a Harley, it probably wasn't since, first, he wore a helmet and second, any witness could have run the Harley down on foot and caught it.
