One of the most challenging lessons I try to teach readers is simply learning how to avoid jumping to conclusions. Motorcycle accidents happen to be one of the biggest sticking points, as a lot of folks out there simply assume all riders are reckless. I know from experience that's just not true.
Some riders are reckless, certainly, but the same is true for any kind of driver. In fact, I've found a lot of motorcyclists to be especially safe due to the risk other, larger vehicles pose to them. So for all we know, this all was the result of a tire blowout, a medical emergency, road hazards, or even a hit-and-run (tragically common in Harris County). That's why I encourage folks to avoid hasty conclusions with no evidence and focus rather on what can be done for those affected by these serious incidents.
