This is terrible news Flex. It's been stated before, but there aren't many words, if any, that would comfort you right now. I'm truly sorry for your loss and I'll be praying for the comfort of you and your family.

We all talk about how we strive to be safe on public roads, but we all also have lapses in judgement from time to time and push the envelope. It's an easy thing to do regardless of experience, abilities or age. These things always help to put things into perspective as unfortunate as they are. Live life to the fullest, laugh as much as possible and love until it hurts.

Wow, this is a tough one. Stay strong buddy. I hope you have friends around you to help you get through it. I don't know what I would have done without all of the support of my close friends. Do what you can for the rest of your family. I know what they are going through and it's going to be very painful for some time to come.

My deepest condolences, and thanks for sharing in this difficult time. Your actions may help others re-evaluate their riding styles, and help prevent these kind of tragedies.

Time to be strong and support your family, may God grant you strength.

My condolences and prayers to you and your family. Everyone grieves in different ways, but you will all grieve. Give yourself the time to grieve and surround your self with those that love you and your brother. I've lost 5 family members in the last 10 years and it never gets any easier. Godspeed to you sir.

Terrible news, always hate to read these threads. May your brother rest in peace.


Now I got to say this,....100 mph at night & after (I'm assuming) a few drinks..

I so hope that anyone reading this thread learns something here. Stay safe guys.

Hopefully you're doing alright.

It's hard to comprehend - but he got what was coming to him. At least you can know he was having fun before he passed. Sorry for the loss.

Very tough news. Sorry to hear about your family's loss.

My heart goes out to you and especially your parents. Your not supposed to bury your kids.

Deepest heartfelt condolences.
