Rip rider, just saw this as well. It's a shame that the news never warns people to watch out for motorcycles, check mirrors/blind spots. Got me thinking of how to raise awareness of this issue.

RIP.

Rode in to work today from Brampton to Toronto. Don't think i'll be doing that again, too many idiots out there...3 times people come into my lane without a mirror or shoulder check from a lane of stopped traffic...

Might as well take the train and ride when I get home

Ride that stretch every morn after nights. It's never good. I try to hit the fast lane and stay there. Then I at least have the knowledge that there is a bit of a way out on the left shoulder. And the only traffic is what is infront, behind, and to my right.

Sad. RIP.

A motorcyclist is dead after he was hit by a transport truck and dragged 80 metres along Hwy. 401 Wednesday morning.
The accident happened at 8:53 a.m. at Stevenson Rd. in Oshawa.
Police say the victim rear ended a car in front of him and was thrown from his bike and into the path of an oncoming transport truck.
As of 10 a.m. the victim was still pinned under the truck.
All westbound lanes from Harmony Rd. to Stevenson have been closed as police investigate. Ramps from Courtice Rd., Ritson Rd. and Simcoe St. have also been closed. The closures are expected to last for four hours.

I wanted to hear more about this so I turned to both CTV & CITY news. Both started with the story of the guy hitting the stupid raccoon? REALLY? That was more important than somebody getting killed on the 401??

RIP!
