Re: On the news today...

watched this last night.. the kid was going to fast to stop in time, he ran into the back of an older car, and he was thrown form the bike, the car didnt take much damage at all,.. I guess you should always leave the front end locked, like i do, never give someone the chance!

What's with the "haha's" after your sentences?

A 13-year old CHILD dying is not funny.

Re: On the news today...

I feel bad for his family.
Interestingly enough was how 2 news stations reported the incident differently. Channel 2 basically told the story how it went: 14 year old killed on borrowed motorcycle.
Channel 11 however was slanted towards slamming the bike: "the bike is capable of 160 mph" Was the bike going that fast? No! Never mind the poor kid wasn't wearing a helmet or that he was 14. Just another reminder that we are a target for the media.

So sad, They say the father rode competively at the track, and the son was more than likely taking it out to try and prove to his dad he was a good rider.

Re: On the news today...

My condolences to his parents I just hope his Father do not get in trouble 'cause the Court can make him liable. I hope not.

I remember back in Mexico when I was a teen (mid 70's) the son of a co-worker and friend of my Father die when he sneak out of the house to have a joy ride in his father's car. I talk to the kid a couple of times in Company gatherings, he seemed to be a nice and down to earth kid, never a trouble maker and great student....I remember the car very well because it was like a Mustang "Bullit" replica, the kid did it when all the family was already in bed and sleeping. According to what I remember he crashed the car in the freeway against a concrete barrier (speeding) and was ejected of the car .. :eh: :eh: :eh: We attend the funeral services and his mother passed away several times. It was the first time for me attending a funeral service, did not like it.

Re: On the news today...

That kid didn't really make a smart move, and it is truely unfortunate. The father could be held responsible for neglegence. I'm not saying it is his fault, but i doubt a court would say that. They really are going to be looking for someone to blame. I think this could have happend to anyone that has kids. It's kind of the samething if the kid had found his dad's gun. I have a motorcycle and a gun, and I think i'm responsible with both. I don't have kids, but if i did i would pray that i could protect them from both.

I couldn't imagine anything worst than outliving your own child. I've been to a funeral for a 11 year old. It's very sad.

Kids these days are getting bigger. My younger brother is 12 years old, 5ft 8in, and 200lbs. He is kind of fat, but he is still quick. I think if he wanted to he could probably take my bike out just like this young guy. luckly he has no such inclination.

Hope you never have kids, you obviously lack compassion, and most definately would be a terrible father.

this is very true. theres a kid i know in my neighborhood who is in 5th grade now but when he was in 4th grade he was on the bus and when the bus driver stepped of the bus he got in the drivers seat and began to drive the bus. He is also huge hes 5'7" 280lbs and knows SOO much for a 5th grader. I know him because he got kicked off the bus for doing this and i was hired by his mom to pick him up from school everyday since she was at work. Its amazing how smart and brave kids are becoming.
