I drove by it as they were towing away a Ford Ranger and escorting an 18-Wheeler to the Fingers Furniture Store. The Cruiser didnt look to good, it looked like the big rig ran it over and thats what caused it to burst into flames. That little Ranger couldnt of done that to the bike, it looked really bad !

RIP ....

According to an "eyewitness" the cruiser swerved in front of the pickup and hit the wall. The 18 wheeler made it through without any contact

Self-loathing, I guess.

Any rider who dies of their own actions, it IS entirely possible to state what went wrong without being disrespectful to that person or to others.


Rest in peace, rider.

You have some built up angst or anger lately, or you always such a douche, cause sarcasm gets old.

Here we go again with this !

Seriously people, a guy past away for probably no fault of his own (we were not there to see what happened) and all we have to argue about is how HD riders are and donít know how to ride.

Who the is any of us to judge about something we donít know about?

This isnít a rant about how you feel, itís about what happened to a fellow rider and the phone call his family will receive/received


Grow the up and get over yourself !!!!

I understand the motive behind the statement. I don't know the rider. May have been a great father or a son and my prayers go out to the family and friends, but when you've had to put up with nothing but from HD/Cruiser riders like I have it's easy to spit out some hate. I'll never go to the Lone Star again because of THEM. You can't talk to them, can't wave, can't ride together. I live right next door to three HD riders and about 4 sportbikers. Been flipped off a number of times in my own driveway by the HD riders and if I'm on the phone they blip the throttle and one is a fugly old beoch. Talk about "douche". The sportbikers have stopped in and said hi.
It's directly because of them that our nice TP meet got shut down.

I assume not all HD/Cruiser riders are bad.

Again, peace to your soul brother and peace to your family and friends.
