If I ever get wasted while riding, it will be because of something I did or did not do. Unless I'm hammered by a 50-pound frozen turd from the sky, I had a large part in my own demise.

We'll never know about his guy, but he was there.

RIP to another one. What have you learned? Not a fucking thing.

Gloves, jacket, Full Face helmet were all in sight as the medics removed them. Not sure of any other gear but was wearing the bare essentials for sure.

Perhaps you should take a moment and learn something yourself. Compassion goes a long ways in these instances, and it appears to be something you lack (edit: at least online).

It is impossible for one to control every aspect of every situation. As riders, we try our best to mitigate these risks by being attentive and riding defensively but ultimately there are factors that will always be out of our control.

Is it that difficult to let friends and family mourn the loss of a loved one without adding cynical diatribe to the conversation? I've met you in person before, and seem to be a stand up guy. I just don't understand the negativity that you portray on here.

Heads up everyone - who's fault it is? NOT relevant to the dead guy, huh?

TNC pre-ride - come learn to enjoy going slow....

Another Horrible accident. Let us all take time to give this man his proper respect. RIP. Look out for each other, teach when you can, and hold close to each other on every ride we do, we need to remember that we are the only ones doing the bike thing. The cagers outnumber us. If we are a family ,,,,act like it ! Love your fellow rider . Pay respect , that is all we got ! We only have each other ! I pray this rider to heaven, and pray to Heaven the Lord looks out for all of us ! May we all ride a long time safe.
