I think it's good, and healthy, to be able to put a face and a family to those riders who've died. Both so those who know them can pay their respects, and to make these senseless deaths strike home harder to those inexperienced riders who are still with us.

When a(nother) fatality is just another anonymous incident, those of us who are still in denial about our mortality can shrug it off. Breath some life into that fatality's identity, and it might affect people's decisions in the future when it's time to twist the throttle.

, see if Starbucks will let us post a big RIP poster of his face on Wednesday night!!

I agree, not likely...but it would be good to show younger (or older, inexperienced) riders that it can happen to them as well...we need to get over this "I can ride faster than Jorge Lorenzo on the street" attitude and chill a bit...not saying that was this kids attitude, but I'm sure you know what I mean...

Unfortunately stupidity can sometimes have a very high price tag. All the worse when it could have been easily avoided.
