Brad Hall Remeberance

A co-worker/friend Brad Hall, Died 7 years ago on this day. I just wanted to say that I remembered you bud. Thanks for teaching me so much. I wish you would have listened to me and wore your gear.

Lil background:
Brad bought a new bike after not riding for 15yrs. I told him that things are different now than they were 15yrs ago. I asked him to wear gear but he said he was "safe". He bought the bike on Saturday and died the following Tuesday after taking the day off from work. He took a mild turn in Fulshear and went wide. The handlebar made a hole in his chest along with the other injuries. He was riding with a friend that happened to be a Dr. The Doc couldn't keep him alive and he died on the scene. I know that I did everything I could to keep him safe but you can't make a grown man do anything.

This is the reason why we say wear your gear. This is why I always wore my gear. Yeah I had a nasty crash and I was permanently injured but I am still here. Heed the warning!

Sad story. :/:

You can't remind someone enough to wear their gear! Unfortunate that this reminder involves your friends death but maybe it will make someone put on a jacket today when they get on teh bike instead of just helmet and gloves.

Good to see you remembering your friend too, he must have been a good one.

He was a good one. He taught me a lot about writing different program languages. He had asked me to go ride with him but I was in the middle of a teardown on my second 900rr motor so I couldn't go. I am glad I didn't go now. He was one of those survival types that had a place in Montana with underground silos and stuff. He had gold, silver and living supplies in them somewhere only he knew where there were. We joked around after his death saying that we couldn't beleive he was dead. We said that he must have faked his death and went into hiding. He had all sorts of weapons including some serious 50cal FA guns mounted on tuorettes. He was one crazy mf'r.

He was a manager and he allowed me to set up a Quake II server. We had about 20 of us playing in the department. Talk about fun. I miss those days. We got so much work done at a rapid pace just so we could play quake. lol.
