    Update:
    The preliminary investigation found that the driver of a black 2015 Lexus SUV was traveling southbound on Old Seward Highway and the driver of a black 2019 Kawasaki motorcycle was traveling northbound. The driver of the SUV attempted to make a left turn onto Sundown Court and collided with the motorcycle.
    The victim has been identified as Paxon Messing (26-years-old). Next of kin procedures have been completed.
    No charges or arrests have been made at this time.
    The investigation continues.

    Looks like he was the younger brother of this 27 year old guy from Girdwood.

    Never, ever, expect left turners or those entering from side roads to see you. : (

    Thanks for posting that up tho, Tom.

    I was wondering why the surname Messing sounded so familiar.

    Yep, and ride as tho 'nobody sees you."

    26 years old, not age at all, my thoughts are will his family and friends. Could be any of us any day.

    Humans make mistakes, especially when surrounded by a safe steel SUV. SUV's seem to have taken over from Volvo's as the most dangerous vehicle on the road to motorcycles.

    Damn I own both of the same vehicles being mentioned in this incident and was worried if it was my wife, but then again we don't live in Anchorage.
