Another Fallen Rider....

I didn't personally know the guy, but he stayed in the same apartment complex as a friend of mine. What the report doesn't mention is that he was doing a wheelie down college hill (a long steep grade with parked cars and traffic EVERYWHERE, not to mention tons of pedestrians)and the SUV pulled a U turn and couldn't make it, stopping on the road and colliding with the rider. Its sad to lose a rider, but poor judgement cost him his life that day. My prayers are with his family and friends. Everyone keep the shiny side up and be thankful every time you pull back into the garage unharmed. Ride safe.

Unfortunately some riders never learn.

Sad, but again, a time and place for everything. And thats only half the battle, my best friend was killed when an suv saw him comming but thought she had time to pull out. Not speeding, wheelies, nothin... just riding. Always gotta be ready for the other guy too.
