The oncoming rider was a perpetrator, not a victim.

It simply amazes that people, even the OP, would ignore the 100% culpability of the oncoming rider in this case.

I wonder if the sentiment would the same if it were:

a) a 16 year old in a WRX

b) a squid on a Gixxer

c) a rube in an F250


But NOOOOO, it wasn't his fault - because he was riding a GS and had good insurance.
Your posts have said it all.

Sue the state because there's sand on the road in winter??? In Wyoming no less.
