The 1999 Suzuki motorcycle was operated by 24-year old Kyle W. Williams of Rogue River. The bike was struck head-on.

This is why I am selling my bike. It is so much fun but not worth it. It is not a matter of if you get in a wreck, it's a matter of when. Also, anybody past 65 should have to go reapply for their license. Get visual checks and everything else.
