Be careful out there!

Just been e mailed this link.

Looking at some of the photos I think some riders were not so lucky, but I hope I am wrong!

FWIW, "AB-77" license plates come from Moscow and are for bikes made from 1994 and onwards.

Group riding certainly has more risk if you are not doing the posted speed limit!

Notice all the skid marks from the rear tires.

On one photo it shows a rear tire lock up with visible smoke coming from the tire.

I think they were on a hill

I venture to guess that a major factor was the stopped bikes were on the far side of a hill and the approching bikes didn't see them till its too late. Group rides are dangerous
