SoW farewell for Marco Simoncelli Sunday 11-6-11 ar 10am

I heard of a gathering tomorrow morning Sunday 6th of November at Streets of Woodfield at 10am to do a proper farewell for Super Sic. It is a global event, 58 secobds of noise at 10:30 local time. Considering the good weather I hope a lot of people show up. I will be there around 10.

I think we should all just rev up from our garages all over the place and see if it makes the news.

Thats what i did, revved and spit flames. Got a few weird looks from the neighbors, plus it was cool to hear faint revs from other bikes in the area.

I'm sure I'm the asshole.

when will we have a moment for fallen fire men or maybe a cop killed by some gang banger????

Who would have thought that being a fast motorcycle rider would earn you this kind of WORSHIP.

All you hard working fathers out there should just become racers if you want any respect.

Some of you need better hero's.

Dude, he is *A* hero ..... not *the only* hero.


I fly my flag every memorial day to honor some.

I celebrate my parents birthdays.

I fly my flag on independence day with thoughts of those that made it possible.



We need all the heroes we can find these days.

So, STFU.

Fire men and cops are not my heroes, neither is/was Sic. Heroes are people that do extraordinary things in extraordinary circumstances. Fire men and LEO are professionals and it is their duty to serve and protect. After all that is how they make their living.

Rushing into a burning building or chasing a gangbenger is not act of heroism it is act of duty, it is an act for what they are paid for and what they are expected to do.

An act of heroism is when a innocent bystander gets in a burning building or disarms a gangbenger, or when a soldier risks his life in order to save the lives of many, or when someone sacrifices itself for the benefit of others.

Super Sic was a professional athlete of extraordinary capabilities and as such had a very large following. If you have/had a problem with the events that took place all over the world you could have/should have started another tread and bitched about it and NOT highjack this tread.

There is always a place and time for everything, unfortunately this tread was not a place for your rant.

I apologize for jacking your thread.
I disagree with you assessment of firemen.
A world that puts athletes on such a pedestal falls short in my opinion of what matters.

i thought it was an opportunity to make some noise for a guy who died too soon, while riding with some awesome people on a not very cold day in november.
i had the most fun today and i'm happy that i made it.

making noise was a nice gesture that someone had come up with, with an outstanding effect of meeting with fellow bikers for some fun times!!

I used to be a FF in Germany, ran in a building and saved some guy, burnt my hair, was a hero for a few people - my thought: well I did what I had to when I took the "mission"...

Last year I lost a friend from Germany who fought in the war on Terror.
Today I tributes to one of my heroes, Marco Simoncelli.
Tomorrow I might have a tear in my eye for someone else...

I honestly hold a lot of you guys and respect your opinions. But than on the bottom line WHO really cares?
I went to a benefit for a friend that got pretty messed up in an accident during running from the cops. He had no insurance and has a lot of bills to pay... My opinion on riding is that you should have insurance and not run from the cops, do I go and tell that everyone at the benefit? No, that is my respect for him and his family. Will i talk to him about it, yes when there is a time and a place, but first he needs to be back to normal...

Well, I am sure on Firefighter and Police Message boards, that attract those types of workers and such, do honor in their way - Just as the motorcycle racing community is choosing to do here

I see your point Gus but this is a Bike Board with MANY race fans so I would think that would be kind of obvious amigo

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

Yes I was on a rant sorry about that.I get the fact that he is held in high regard.

I don't understand holding someone you don't really know in such regard simply because he rides a motorcycle fast.
I will hold judgment on all men until I've come to know their morals and such.

I wont reply to this thread again.I will not defend my opinion again.I've said my piece ban me if you wish.

trying to quantify loss is ridiculous.

trying to put someone's pain and suffering in perspective for them is assholic.

this thread is about Marco.

we loved watching him race and from how others who really knew him are reacting to his death we can tell he was a good person too. these are the only reasons we need to morn his death.

no comparisons need to be made.

I've never heard of this Marco guy until he died and I read it on motorcycle forums. I don't think it made the local news or local newspaper. I am willing to bet 90% of people on this forum didn't know who he is either before he passed.

Still, RIP. It's always sad to hear a rider down.

99.9% of the world doesn't hear a soldier's name until he/she dies either and they're getting paid too. Does that mean they shouldn't be recognized when they bring freedom or joy to the lives of others?

I would put money that you are wrong that 90% here didn't know who he is. Read any motoGP thread, and you will see him discussed. He raced, and for the most part did a damn good job. You could see him learn from every mistake, and take away a lesson from each and every practice/race/discussion with fellow racers. He was good and could have one day been the new GOAT. And I saw it on the local news here in Florida, and I believe someone posted that it was on the local Chicago stations as well. Being on a motorcycle forum I would think that people would know a motorcycle racer.

Gus, I believe that the people around the morotcycle community wanted to pay tribute for the pleasure that Simoncelli brought them through his riding, and his unique style. The tribute was suggested by his father, and I for one am glad that people were willing to show his family that he was admired by his fans. He died doing something he loved, we should all be so lucky, his time was just way too soon.

In my opinion having anyone die so young is tragic. I think the world just takes more notice when they are "famous" or super talented. He was known to many many people, and since he was willing to spend time with his fans, it made an even bigger impact when he died. Also the fact that he died on a world wide broadcast really hit home for a lot of people. I for one sat watching the accident, and my heart sank. I DVR each motoGP race, so I can watch, and rewind if I want to see a pass again, or want to freezeframe something. Dave and I were just talking about the fact that he rode to the limits, not always in the safest or smoothest methods, but he did what he did, and the people loved him. His fellow riders didn't always love him, but that's the name of competition.

I'm the first people to pay for a meal for soilders, or send care packages to the troops. I have a flag that is kept in great condition on our home, and I donated a huge container of candy to the fire department for Halloween. I will also bake a bunch of baked goods for the guys on the local Navy base for the holidays. We are going to "adopt" a sailor for the holidays and they will come and have either Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner with us, since they aren't with their own family for the holidays. I do honor "Heros" in many ways, but I don't think paying tribute to a fallen rider takes away from those Honors in any way shape or form.

I don't ride, I cook!
