  • My best friend...GONE!!!!

    I just got home from closing the lid on my best friends casket... It happened Sat night (SUN morn).. He was on his way home from a local hang out here in Phoenix... On his way home he pushed his 01 GSX-R 1000 to the top speed it would go for reasons only he will know... He also had his soon to be wife on the back when it happened.. Yes I know is was a dumb thing to do with a passenger, but what's done is done.... Hitting from what to police about 160mph or so he came over a hill in the freeway when he came face to face with a work truck that was in his lane... From what the officer said he tried to swerve to miss the truck but at that speed he couldn't.. From what the report said he laid the bike down before the impact sending her flying off first, then they said he held on for a little bit when his bike slid under the back, he then came off and his head struck the back tire of the work truck and snaped it and one of the major vains to his brain.... As for her she is doing ok she has 2 broken bones and some road rash but will for the most part be fine.... They both had on all of there gear...
    I'm hoping by putting this up that it will make my fellow brothers and sisters that ride think about what they are doing before they push the limits on the bike.... I ride and know it's a hard thing to do but I know now that I will try more then ever to THINK before i TWIST......

                          Condolences wazburn. That is terrible news.
                          All that we can take from this is that maybe some of us reading this story when riding will stop, think and live where we may not have.

                          RIP Jerry

                            The sad thing is.. it always seems like "lately".. but the truth is it never stops I used to go fast around corners, over hills and stuff, until I drove past an accident where a guy had come over a crest at speed, into a car that had decided to stop Now I only go fast where I will slow down before turns/crests etc.

                            Jeramy.. that sucks... my condolences. A miracle at that speed he managed to save his lady though.
