I am sure it meant alcohol was involved. I agree it is sad when anyone dies, and I feel for his family and anyone that knew him. I just don't understand why people drink and ride, or drive for that matter. I'll admit that I have been behind the wheel a few times when I probably should not have been, but nowadays, I am quick to give up the keys. One thing I never do is drink when I am on the bike. That is just absolute stupidity to me. To each his own, but its just not worth it to me, and I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone that may have been drunk and running from the cops. My Flame on! LOL!
