Rider down.... RIP

So I get a phone call today from my best friend... and without getting into names or exact details (its not my place to say)... He tells me that friend of his who I have met once or twice
crashed his bike by Golf Mill Mall yesterday afternoon and died on impact...

It is very sad as he was only 24 and was full of potential.
He is dear friends with some of my other family members and they
are devastated...

If you can, say a prayer for him, his friends and family...

I have to say this is quite a wake up call for me.... I live minutes from the crash sight, and I never would have thought I could crash there... always thought I might go down in a corner going to hot... or maybe on the expressway...

Watch out guys... Be careful.

RIP thoughts and payers are with all those involved.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Thanks everyone... I told my friend of your kind words and he was truly touched. I think this will help them with the healing process.

you know... this kind of takes a strange twist.
I was riding last night and passed right through Golf and Harms.
Saw alot of glass and shattered parts from an accident in the on coming lanes... looked to my right and saw a bunch of Asians standing around. I guess I must have ridden right through the scene and had no idea... It didnt occur to me until Pugsly mentioned the intersection it happened at. wow...weird.
