Why anyone would ride a

Why anyone would ride a motorcycle is beyond me. You don't stand a even chance in an accident.

My condolences to the family.

My condolences to the family. Sounds like there more to this story than meets the eye. Speeding, racing, acting like a fool and putting yourself, others and your motorcycle at risk is not the definition of a biker. Getting on a motorcycle does not make one a biker. Most bikers are very cautious. And, please look at least twice, and don't talk or text on your cell phones when driving your car. All of us, whether on a bike or in our cars want to get home alive. Watch out for the other guy or gal! Sometimes, youth is wasted on the young!

JRC2024, I owned a motorcycle

JRC2024, I owned a motorcycle from age 18-40. I immensely enjoyed it. I had a couple of wrecks, one of them would have been fatal but if not for my helmet. Then when I turned 40 I sold it. The reward vs the risk just wasn't there anymore. To answer your question: People ride motorcycles because they are a helluva lot of fun! But as most (not all) people get older they abandon unsafe acts for the reward of self preservation. So when I gave up the motorcycles at age 40, I thanked my lucky stars for all the fun I had and I survived. That is why the life insurance tables indicate that as you get older, so does your life expectancy. Older people just don't participate in as many unsafe activities. Today I drive a very safe car. It as about 10 air bags and electronic stability control, among other safety features. Also, I am rarely outside my home after 10PM (unless it is for a sporting event).

Yes JRC2024

At 70 MPH,I now stay 7 car links from the car in front of me. I guess that is why we are called "Old Fogies'" I also realize my reaction time is not as good as when I flew helicopters.

I love riding my Harley sure I have had some close calls. The rider has to pay 100% attn to what they are doing. I did have an accident on mine. I got too much outside my comfort zone when I had the wreck. Lesson learned, but the thrill of riding after a bad day at work. Words cannot describe how great it is. Granted drivers on 4 wheels need to be more careful and look out for motorcycles. There are a lot more cars at fault then motorcycle riders at fault.

and the criticism begins

4 lines are posted about a fatal accident-no specifics on THIS site beyond the person's name and the fact that it occurred. And yet people still find a need to make snide and insensitive remarks. Nope, it doesn't give you a freebie to preface them with condolences to the family either. At least a few folks made some intelligent "neutral" remarks. I think it should be the policy that if you want to make such comments, you should call up the family and tell them just what you wrote as well. Why hide on here? If you think this family's relative was "Speeding, racing, acting like a fool and putting yourself, others and your motorcycle at risk is not the definition of a biker", or you wonder "Why anyone would ride a motorcycle is beyond me", and even if it appears that "According to WRDW he was fleeing from the police", then ask the family.

Learn to read. I did not point those comments at the deceased. It is very sad indeed when anyone dies needlessly. The comments were pointed to the person who said, "Why anyone would ride a motorcycle is beyond me". Seems like the motorcycle is always to blame. You never hear anyone say, "Well, if it wasn't for that car they were driving, they still might be alive". And just because you hop on a motorcycle or get into a car, doesn't mean you know what you're doing. It's a skill that takes learning, time, experience and respect for the vehicles. If WRDW reported the truth, then was the poor fellow's alternative stopping for the police? He would be alive had he stopped.

So sad :(

I remember seeing this guy a lot. He always nodded to say hello. I saw him in my neighborhood a few months back on his bike going...a little too fast...with the police behind him. When I saw him on Windsor Springs yesterday I couldn't believe my eyes. From the day I saw him in my neighborhood, I feared he would hurt himself or someone else. I feel so sad for his family. Regardless of what has happened before he lost his life yesterday and there is no replacing him.
