You can die in a car accident or a million other ways too. A good percentage of m/c deaths come from poor decisions on the bikers' part, and I think we would hear about a lot less if everyone would ride responsible (although we know that won't happen). I think you have to enjoy life though and if that means riding a bike on the streets that is okay, but be responsible with your actions so that you reduce the chances of getting in an accident. Some things are just out of our control but that doesn't mean we should have to live, travel, or try to get by in life in rubber bubbles.
Well said indeed .

i went to his funeral yesterday and saw him. it really hit me seeing his mother and father being so upset and crying! i just imaged my parents looking down at me.

he died in Shenandoah tx taking a girl for a ride.he was going fast and did not see the turn and went straight and went into the lake( the police say he out rode his headlights) . the girl was able to get to him and drug him out of the water. he was not in good shape.( lets just say all the pieces were togather but he was banged up and bleeding out of holes he should no be) she was wearing his helmet and jacket. he wasn't wearing any gear.idiot!! he got life lighted to the big H and they took him off life support at 6:11 am sat morning .

anyway she came out of it with a broken leg and a stitch or 2 on her head. i dont know if i want to ride anymore. i would not be able to put my mother or father threw something like that. my mother already hates that i ride. everytime she begs me to take my car where ever i go and she wants me to sell it. i just love being on the bike

i always wear a helmet and jacket and jeans. i do need boots. but all the gear in the world will not save u. im not sure what i want to do. i just love riding!

RIP chris!
i feel you bro i lost best friend but not from a motorcycle accident , but month before he died he was in a motorcycle accident he was bang up really bad. Even i have my scares too. 2007 a car got in front of me and i kinda did a never ending ndo and flip the bike really bad. well long story short if you really love to ride well ride man just be safe about it if it is you time it your time to go. My friend died at his job you know, he was barely recoverying from his accident.

Hate to see this subject come often. But its something you have to come to an understanding when you get in to the motorcycle scene. Like many others have said RIP to your friend.

Myself I have had friends die, one day we would be out riding eating, laughing, having a gr8 time, nex day find there gone. I personally for a while did not ride with others. Stayed away from forest rides/Galveston rides/group rides etc.I basically disappeared out of the bike scene. Tho I Kept riding the same routes alone that I usually did with my friends that past away. You may deal with it different.That is just how I felt comfortable

I'd like to think that its a bit easier to accept if we all know and accept the risks beforehand. Your own riding ability has much to do with how safe it can be but, there are too many ignorant and careless drivers out there that make our jobs that much trickier.
I have come to terms with the fact that it may be my turn soon. And if we could get that across to our friends and family (treat everyone like its your last day), then if it ever happens, I can go in peace knowing I have fewer regrets.

I live my life in this manner every day.

My wife always asks why I do not believe that I will ever see retirement, and I really can't answer that question for her. She just wouldn't understand...

I live my life with no regrets, do not put off things today that can be done tomorrow, and am certainly ready when that day comes.

Those afraid of dying just aren't living right....
