R.I.P to the fallen rider and riders, regardless of what they were wearing when the went down.
I disagree. It is not disrespectful to learn from another persons mistake. Not only should we take a moment of silence and prayer.......but we also should take a moment of reflection. Pointing out that gear should be worn in a RIP thread maybe will serve as a wake up call for one person out there and save a life down the road.

She shouldve looked a lil more and this tragedy would of been avoided. But, and this is a big but, the riders shouldve been wearing gear. This is why they go through extensive testing with our helmets and jackets and gloves. These small things actually do save lives. But when negated, can do nothing for us as riders. Yes, this is sad. RIP to the fallen riders. My prayers go out to their families. But if only someone had warned them of the consequences without the proper gear, they would probably be alive today...

True, pointing out that gear is a good thing...but not the other parts...There is nothing to be learned insulting the deceased...It's just out right wrong and completely uncalled for... That's one of those things you keep too yourself.

The highlighted is what I mostly took issue with...

I really doubt anything other than a helmet does anything but make it easier for them to clean the mess up. They slammed into a car whats a jacket or leather pants gonna do?
