My mechanic got killed

Well, my long time mechanic got killed on his Harley Davidson yesterday. There was a car stopped trying to turn left, and there was also a car stopped behind her. He came around a turn too fast and hit the second car as the front car was beginning its turn. He basically clipped the back car and went down and slid into the side of the turning car, which then ran him over. Oddly, I graduated from HS with the girl that ran him over, and was very good friends with her.
He was wearing a half helmet (i think, maybe full) and a t-shirt. Even though I feel bad about the situation, I am somewhat glad that it was his fault. If not I would be extremely angry at my friend. I also feel that this accident SHOULD have been avoided if he was under control of his bike. This is one that can't be chalked up to cagers. I think I would have felt much more vulnerable if he had been killed by no fault of his own.

RIP Bobby

Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler
