Can't see myself attending any rallys that expect more that 100k in any given location, anymore. Seems the locals in those spots tend to forget that hordes of bikers are in their towns bolstering their economy.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but if a car turned left into a motorcycles path, and the motorcycle hit the driver's side door, wouldn't that indicate that the motorcyclist was maybe picking a real lousy time to pass? I know it's usually the car's fault when bikes get hit, but having made some bonehead passes myself over the years, I have to wonder if this isn't one where the bike was at fault.
I think it means the cars were turning left accross the road, at an intersection. Ie.. coming from the biker's right and turning onto the same road (but opposite direction) as the biker. (car is heading East, but turning to head North at the intersection, crossing the path of the southbound biker)
