My friend Mat Swan crashed his motorcycle last night in Lakewood and died..He was not a forum member.. But still a fellow rider and and awesome person and sadly..no longer with us.
He was being stupid and riding above his skill level in a retarded place to do so and this could have easily been avoided. He was going to fast for a residential street.. someone pulled out in front of him..He left the road and crashed into a tree. His leg got mangled and he bled to death.
That still doesnt change that the guy was awesome and is leaving family and friends behind.. I will miss him.
Be careful out there and learn from this mistake.

Fuck this man. What a loss.
Extend my condolences to his family and friends, sorry for your loss.
I also feel for whoever pulled out in front of him, specially not being at fault. Watching someone go like that and knowing you had a role in it must be pretty traumatizing.

All of us had had our close calls. It's the nature of biking on roads with cars, but hearing of tragedies like this makes us more careful. The memory of what happened could save one of us from a similar fate someday. That doesn't make it any easier. Condolenses.
