We had a story in the news here a few weeks ago; 3 guys left a bar one night and all headed to their homes. 2 of the riders were killed within an hour of each other in 2 seperate crashes. I thought that if I was the 3rd guy, I would quit drinking and driving because he looks to be next on the list.

between the two posts on this thread ,5 riders dead 3 of whom gambled and lost..... not a tear shed for the thinning of the herd. might have been nice people, might just have been breeders for more idiots.

hate to say it, but i'm afraid i'm getting desensitized to the news stories these days. it's almost a daily story on the local morning news, seems like. whether it's a squid on a sportbike acting the fool and flying over a 30ft high guard rail, or a poor ol' guy on a cruiser just out trying to catch a cool breeze (and not succeeding lately, i might add) gettin' run over by a drunk running a stop sign, or somebody on a daily commute gettig read ended by some idiot on a cell phone, i swear it's several a week this summer.

r.i.p., all.
