Motorcycle accident in Kelowna

Castanet is reporting that there was a "motorcycle crash along Highway 97 on Saturday. The crash occurred at the intersection of 97 and Hebert Road after 5:30 p.m. Fire crews and paramedics were on scene." Several motorcycles were pulled over. One onlooker was wearing a support patch and another was wearing a Hells Angels patch.

Let's hope they're OK. I don't wish that on anyone. I don't have beef with the Kelowna chapter anymore and I don't have beef with people who ride. I have beef with the fake MCs that don't ride motorcycles they just ride SUVs and sell drugs like the Cub pack.

It's possible it was an associate new to riding. Cars changing lanes without looking can take out a motorcyclist but usually when there's a group of motorcycles people see them and keep their distance. However, sometimes people panic when they see a large group of motorcycles and drive erratically. If you see a large group of motorcycles on the freeway, relax. Pull over to the slow lane and let them pass. If they are in front of you, they aren't a threat. Just make sure you leave a safe following distance because motorcycles can brake faster than cars can.
