Yeah hard to tell.. but probably a cruiser.

That doesn't look the a road a pedestrian should be trying to cross. Wonder if the Ped made an ill judged/timed crossing and dind't realize the bikes speed.. and perhaps combined with some rider inattention due to not expecting a Ped to come into the road...

Just a reminder we need to be extra alert. Still a shame.

i found this thread yest and was cruising through philly yest just after sundown. a few times people were in the street or running across it and i literally could not see them until i was 10 ft or less from them. it was a combination of the light, their clothes and the glare from oncoming headlights.

all i could think about was someone stepping out from between cars and right into me.
