And I bet most people that live on or regularly need to use that road get awfully tired of having motorcycles fling up and down it on Sunday morning, and maybe every day and night. Not that it justifies murder, but I'd sure be looking for a way to slow them down or get them to go elsewhere.
As stated, you can pass in KY, where this happened, on a double yellow in some circumstances. I can't tell that they are going 60-65, doubt you really can tell either Bruce. And the truck was endangering more people than the bike.
As for the people living there, yes, they probably do get tired of it. Just like Ohio 505 for example. However, trying to kill someone over it doesn't work.
Truck driver was in the wrong, period.
