An open letter to CLSB...
Just a thought. CLSB is a terrific group... no, more like a family. All good individuals with a common love for motorcycling.
However, I find the attitudes here somewhat disconcerting as of late. Threads like "Another idiot dead.."
I'm 33. I have friends the same age with the same bike. They are good people with good hearts that, on occasion, will ride faster than they should, as many of you will do, if only on occasion. Perhaps in your head, it's Darwinism, or cleansing of the gene pool when it happens to someone we don't know...
I don't ride with full gear everytime. Am I, and my early 30's friends, then squids? Should my parents, friends, or family be subjected to coming across this website and hearing such things about me or my friends if an accident should happen? Take a moment and wonder how your own parents would feel if they should lose their beloved child and read about how it was Darwinism at it's best....
Educate others. Lead by good example to try to make a difference. But threads like this have no place here, or for that matter, anywhere. To think a man lost his life, for circumstances unknown to us, and the concern is whether or not the police will begin to follow groups of motorcycles...
Condolences to the family, and god speed to Ralph Storino.
In memory of Gman
