I'm curious how long he has been making that commute. Back in the summer of 2005 I would make that drive about the same time from Vista (the news report said that Mr P was from Oceanside) and would be overtaken on my /7 by an RT on a regular basis.

Terrible accident, I hope that we can read the report from the CHP when it is completed. My condolences to all of his family and friends.

Not that it is important to this tragedy, but looks like the bike was a R1100S Boxer Cup Replica.

I have 7 bikes... I'm sure I'm not the only polyamorous rider out here.

my condolences to his friends and family.at 58 im finding freeway riding to be a bit too adventurius these days.its for younger boys and girls who like to live dangerously.after reading the news report im convinced he was unjustly killed by an inattentive driver.

I was going to make a comment about dumb-ass car drivers, but I think that's a little pointless right now.
The fact is we lost another one. I didn't know the man, but based on his credentials I would assume he was a very good/safe rider.
Heartbreaking.
I'll say an extra prayer for his family tonight.

Godspeed Paul. Your country appreciates your service, and may all the riders to trained, ride safely as a tribute.

To the self centered SUV driver, get some tires with tread on them and quit tailgating. I hope they get your phone records and if you were texting or talking I hope they throw the book at you.
