Please say a prayer.

The young man I sold my motorcycle to last July died this morning. Please say a prayer for him and his family and friends..................

so sorry to hear this. I've often worried about the young man that bought my ZX and even googled him once and looked at his facebook page (he had no gear at all when he bought the bike and was giving me the 'who is this old man telling me to be careful' look).

R.I.P. to the fallen rider and prayers for his family sent

I was so worried about this when I sold my CBR1000rr to a young lad in Dallas. He heard from his friends how much work I put into it and how fast it was. All he wanted to do was roll ons with other people and highway running. He turned out smarter than I thought and took it to the track later. RIP
