Scary..Hope I never have to find out if my horn wouldve helped in a situation like this..If he didnt hear the pipes of the Harley, hard to tell if they wouldve heard anything else or if there was time.. Just another hazard for all of us to watch our for.Passing where there is an opportunity to turn left is not a good idea. Guess he found out the hard way why the truck was going slow. I wonder if a Stebel Nautilus Horn would have put the truck back on the straight path and allowed the motorcycle to pass. Rest in Peace. I'm glad I read this because I am going on a 500 mile jaunt with my wife this weekend. Always good to have reminders.
This is actually the best take away. I was going to do a pass once on Mulholland, and as I moved out the guy's hand came out the window in a "slow down" motion as his blinker came on. As it happened, he was a fire fighter going to make a left into the ranger station.Passing where there is an opportunity to turn left is not a good idea.
