Commentary

Bicycle riders as well as motorcycle riders have equall rights to the highway with automobile drivers. Unfortunately too many drivers do not give these vehicle operators the respect they deserve. Motorcylists are often looked down about, but here a courageous motorcyclist and good samaritan may have saved a life.
