So its not just sportbikes

Seems like every time i see an article about a rider getting killed in a crash, theres all-too-often the "excessive speed" element, and he was on a sportbike

In this case:

It is amazing how small the cycle community is. Every time someone is killed riding, it seems like i know someone who knew them, etc

I've made sure that all my friends know, that in the event im killed while out riding -- i want a wake to be thrown. I love to ride, and if it passes that i die while doing it, then that is just fine with me.

I think a lot of people feel similar.

That said, RIP for the rider and thoughts for his family and friends
