Well, that's the problem we mentioned in that other thread. You often cannot base any judgement from what is printed in the news because the information is often sketchy at the time of the initial event.
I guess I am glad that the trucker did not run into them. Still, it is not a good thing to run into a 80,000 pound semi on a dinky bike.
Perhaps they will get the story right by tonight's news.
However, it is still a bad idea to ride near semi's. A cast off retread will kill a biker.
