Yes he was stupid for doing what he did. Yes he will be dealing with pain and jail time for a long tme. I do feel for his family at some level. As a parent sometimes making hard decisioins like taking away a key may have prevented this. Sometimes as a parent you just want your kid to learn a hard lesson. Not sure what his parents thought but they probably did not want to see their son end up like this no parent does. Luckily he only hurt himself. If he makes it out of this he woud be wise to use the pile of metal as a display and start a program at high schools about what a stupid thiing this was to do and that he is lucky to be alive. It may prevent one person from drinking and driving.

On another note (OFF TOPIC) I am concerned about the banning of people on the site. things can get off topic sometimes but it is no reason to ban people. Just don't respond on that topic and it will go away.

Not a bad idea, try and savage something for the good.... there's this guy I went to highschool with dove out of a 3rd story hotel window in a paranoid drugged up rage, landed on his head... he pulled out of the coma and survived and now travels around giving talks to high school kids..

nobody cares that you want his family to think other people might feel that racer x is an when he's dead, but getting all moist eyed over a 19 year old turned vegetable is such a leap in logic there must be 2 movies and several meals served during the flight.
I can never understand why there is always someone rooting for the douchebag.
back on topic after mr.emotional drew me away.
that rider was a . we almost lost another future wrecker driver. and we lost a really nice motorcycle, the only really sad part of the story.
Agree



[QUOTE=Sifu-TZ;2752456]was there an opening in the internet police; respect department?
how can anyone about what other people choose to say on an open forum. if the family doesn't want to read about what a dead I am (they know, trust me) they don't have to read it. I don't understand. if racer wasn't being truthful, I'd call him out on it. but he's being honest, and honesty beats feelings every day.[/QUOTE]


yup

You know out there, there is someone that could make the same arguement about someone that goes down at the track and has the misfortune of passing on. The same argument could be done, "well, they know how dangerous a Motorcycle is and why would they go to some track and try to push the limits. Obviously this person only cared about thrills and had no regard for their family." When a lot of us know that is not necessarily the case. All I'm saying is that when there is a R.I.P thread, and the person that we are asking to rest in pease is a member or a friend, relative, of the person or people that are on here and will be looking at the thread and comments. How bout you keep the bashing and the flaming in another thread that has no relation to the fallen rider. If not out of respect for him/her at least for the family members, loved one and friends. Is that too much to ask for?? I mean, is it THAT neccesary to express those opinions on those threads??


Short answer, to be better than them?

I don't think there is a possibility of a fam member or someone that knows this kid to matter ehat we say about him...So flame this douche away...

Stupid gets people killed - not just the rider but innocent people as well. If your death can be a learning experience for someone else then at least your life had some purpose.

There is no "honor" in dying because you did something stupid. This moronic idea of "respect the rider regardless of what they did" interferes with people learning from others and encourages others to repeat their mistakes.
Well said.

Then someone comes along and starts bashing them or adding their little .02 on what he did wrong or all this BS (we get it), withought keeping in mind that this person, belonged to a family, had friends and people who loved him. Now on top of dealing with their death, now they have to read some hateful and disrespectful things about their dead loved one??? Come on man, I know there is some where in there where you some what see what I'm talking about and might even a gree a little...

Excuse grammar and spelling, not great at going fast and just got back from lunch.
or any other questions, you can just PM me
remember you have to bear the imbecility of racer x

the E TOUGH
