some of you guys in Phoenix might have heard a rider died almost a week ago. He was a good friend of mine plus a damn good stunt rider he was part of the AZbad boys stunt team here in Phx. but to the end he was doing what he loved...riding his true love ...his bike


Bryan Randall Tooley, 23, of Phoenix, AZ, born on May 24, 1982 in Orange, CA passed away on January 28, 2006 in a tragic motorcycle accident. Bryan died the way he lived, riding his one true love "his bike". Bryan was a top member of The AZ Bad Boys Motorcycle Stunt Team. He was loved and admired by many for his loving heart, his fearless nature and his quest for all that life had to offer. Bryan could light up a room with his beautiful smile and sparkling eyes, and will live forever in the hearts of all who knew him. Bryan graduated from Bentonville High School in Bentonville, AR in 2000 then returned to the valley he loved so much. Bryan is survived by his mother and stepfather Janice and George Fradl of Utica, MI, his father Terry McKeever of Bentonville, AR, his natural father Jeff Tooley of NV, his brother Adam McKeever, grandparents Randy and Lois Parker of Sun City, great grandfather Bill Anderson of Surprise, grandfather Earl McKeever of Surprise and his very best friend Richard Overholser of Phoenix.

Sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. I as well have lost many friends due to thier bikes. As well have had people I rode with on Mill Ave die. I don't know how your friend died, but people need to be careful.

People stop, and think before you do stupid sh*t on your bikes! I can't say I haven't been guilty of speeding ect in my riding. I have been there, and done that. However I learned terrible lessons. Lets hope through the loss of your friend will make others STOP & THINK!

Anyway sorry to go off, I don't mean any disrespect just emotional about people dying.

i know two have you guys have asked and more are wondering what happened,so here it goes. Jan. 28 Bryan was leaving a bar he was at with his boss going to a local hang out at 43rd ave and Bell here in Phoenix. he looked around to see if any cops were in sight and pulled one up. but as he set it down he saw a cop watching him, he know he was in for in a ticket. now i don't know everything no one was with him, but he started to run and he flipped the switch to turn off his lights on his bike and ran into the back of a car....so guys think of other people in your life that care and love you.....stop your running so no one else has to go though everything bryan's family and friends had and will have to go though.









hey imacabuser the "RR" at the end does that stand for something as in the "Ruff Riders"?

Well that could be most anyone that happened to... I've done my share of crazy things, and still do at times.. But his time was up and we cannot control that.. Hey.. At least he died doing what he loved.. I would feel worse if he died slipping in the shower... I hope you all don't think I'm being insensitive to this all.. it is not a good thing, but make the best out of a bad situation....
