i think we all know why you preach. and to a certain extent it probably makes a difference. everyone comes to know who racer x is and what he has to say. you have your own smiley. i dont know that coach dave dieing made any changes in me at all. as we all stood on the side f the road i thought he would be ok. then over the next couple of hours that feeling inside changed and i knew he was gone. i even made a joke that coach dave gets to get a new motorcycle now. racer x good for you. even tho msf is'nt going to make the difference everytime it atleast puts the safety factor into thought. in new motorcycle riders minds. good for you. because when you buy your first bike you really have no idea. i miss coach dave, and i will always be excited when the world goes sideways and i ride the sides of my tires. rip to fallen riders.

Look at Zac, I assure you he is a more gifted rider then 99.9% of the people on this board. If it's your time, it's your time.

RacerX is a certified MSF trainer. He has also been riding longer, and put more miles on, than most of the people on this board. After a few years of watching people splatter themselves over and over doing the same stupid stuff, you get jaded and stop trying to sugar coat it and just speak your mind.

I know, because I am the same way. Not to say either of us are angels or perfect "do it all right" every time, but we (as well as most of the OG's) get tired of all the RIP threads. That and everyone trying to justify how they ride, even though they know it is reckless and dumb.

If you lose someone close to you that rides, and it DOESN'T hit home hard and make you stop and think and wake up a bit, then I AM sorry.

not a very good mindset to have. by that logic you can ride no helmet shorts and t shirt at the track or barreling down 59 at 160......tell you what i'll leave it there.

Actually, no.

I fully believe we are all on a "clock" when we are born. Your time is already up, you don't know when, but it is marked down somewhere; depending on which religon you choose is where.

What you do during that time is up to you, freedom of choice. Now, believing that doesn't make me a fatalist, and I won't ride naked down the road for the simple reason that road rash sucks, and it may not be my time to go.

Accept that your life will end, sooner or later, and enjoy the time in between, in a way of your choosing. When it's your "time", won't matter where, what or who you are doing. Can't cheat death, regardless of what the movies may say!

Racer X, Very sobering post and I add my condolences for family and friends of the fallen rider.

To say he died doing what he likes to do is empty and without validation. He didn't die riding, unless for some medical reason he just 'switched off', he died crashing. Those of us who have crashed know it's not fun at all.

To those who say "When it's your time..." you are simply dismissing personal responsibility.

My politically uncorrect $.02.

Brad

so by that thinking you can jump off the toll bridge and survive because t just wasn't your time. or let someone try sawing your head off but since it's not you predetermined time then everything will be ok?? fate is kind of like communism it would make a person lazy since there's nothing really to work for.
