Make sure you all have your medical insurance, and family covered if you choose to ride.
I keep over a 1/2 million in life insurance, 100/300/100 on personal injury. Sad deal. Prayers to his family.

I for one have experienced this numerous times, and i for one will not be bullied into not splitting. I guaranty we have all have tried to be bullies to other cars, or even motorcycles. If thats the case check yourself, you can kill someone.

I think everyone knows exactly what the story was, someone riding dangerously at a high rate of speed and lost his life. What's more to know? Ryan laid it all out with his first hand account of what he saw.

It's sad that young man made those decisions, from all accounts a lot of people had to witness the after math of what can happen. If some graphic pictures makes one person think twice about doing the same thing, I think that's a good thing.

If you don't have the stomach for public opinion, then you might be best served by not getting on a public forum. I don't think you have the emotional constitution to deal with it.

RIP to the rider, condolences to family, friends, and others impacted.

I did see the picture, and posting it in that manner was uncalled for, in my opinion. A bit too graphic to be posted with no warning, not to mention disrespectful in this context.

Haha, "everyone knows exactly", even with Ryan account, it only takes into account the 2 minutes prior.

Get over it, no one knows.

Ride your own ride
Ride your own ride, even when it is probably unsafe and may very well lead to your death?

Maybe we can just be honest about it and condemn irresponsible behavior as a community and it may just have a positive effect on some people. Or we can all sit here and be about it.

Then we wouldn't have anything to talk about except tires and oil.

I can talk tech. all day long, lots to learn and lots to share.

I don't know which is more disturbing, the accident itself. Or a community so desensitized to the sheer brutality of it all, and accepts it as being normal.

Dudes!!! I am the prime example of what can happen when you ride over your head! I believe has saved my life to be an example to others and also by giving me a track to play on, and helped me show my friends how much fun it can be! Not trying to preach but it did save my life! A lot of us have taken the same Risks! If you ride a sportbike, its for one reason! I don't believe one bit we have them to just put around. They are fast and powerful machines!

We lose respect for them, and forget what is going on around us. Half of us ride with head phones and music. We get comfortable and also stop thinking of the things we risk so we don't have to think about what could really happen! We look away when we see these types of things...

R6 Goat! I can't imagine what your feeling! I have never lost a good friend to riding! I have been close to may including myself who have had life changing experiences! Just be grateful for what you have, and try to be there for your friends family! Let us know if you need anything. We are not all douches...

I doubt most people here are saying negative things about your friend as we all have made mistakes! A lot of us naive! It takes one to know one, and we have all been there.... period! Those who are wise enough to learn from others mistakes that's awesome! The majority of us who ride need to make the mistakes for ourselves to really learn anything at all!

We do have the ego to worry about! Sorry we can't get past that for some of you, but hope these words get across to someone!

Unfortunately this is the norm.

If you had it your way there would be no routes on 3090, the forest, or racers road, everyone under 60mph on highways, no stunting anywhere, or motorcycles only allowed at the track, and everyone must where a helmet, jacket, leathers, gloves, and boots.

No thanks, sometimes I ride without helmet and its a breeze.

At least I don't have to worry about you crashing into me just because you're not wearing a helmet.
