    should ban high powered motorcycles. and also should increase the age limit for getting the license since lot of young morons ride bikes just to show off.

    Truck, private bus and three wheel drivers will slow down if the politicians slow down.

    um i think it was the lorry that crashed into the bike... so why would the biker be at fault here?

    Have ever seen a private bus or a heavy vehicle observe speed limits? Have ever seen the police stop them? Have you wondered why?

    Of course the traffic police in this country is doing some other job.

    Does it look like a high power bike? it is just a basic motor bike. perhaps less than 125cc.
