i am really suprised this has not happened to more of these rocket riders.they buy bikes that belong on race courses not on the streets. A wheel stand at 80mph is cool but stupid!

What a coincidence...Pappy's Run was yesterday too. I wonder if they were celebrating the freedom that comes with not having to wear a helmet.

Your reply was just as mean. I believe he/she was making an observation not a judgement. You're right this family needs prayer, but the public also needs to be educated about driving dangerous bikes, vehicles, etc. and sometimes the best auidence is one who is ready to listen due to a loss, which is unfortunate, but true. Let this be a lesson not an arugement.

They may have been stupid to not wear a helmet but show some respect. They have children left with no parents now because of this.

the man had this bike for years. he knew how to ride it. it was a mistake that others should learn from and not ammo for other's arguments.

Look the bottom line is this - its all very sad. I feel much worse for the innocent passenger whos fate was in the hands of the operator. I agree very much with x-cop, these bikes do not belong on the road! The people that drive them have no respect for the safety of others, no-less themselves. We all have witnessed the speeds at which they ride, blowing past cars at 100+ mph, it's a wonder how many accidents have been caused by them scaring other motorist. I don't think anyone really believes they deserved to die and I don't think anyone on this post really knows how it all happened - However, I do feel these bikes should be banned from our roads for the safety of all!!!! Sorry to both families

Reason 89 why motorcycles are dangerous. One minor mistake means your life. At least in a car you have a shot to survive.

Why would you choose to ride a motorcycle when you have children at home? To completely disregard your children is stupid and careless to get a "thrill" of riding a motorcyle. Obviously, I feel bad that they died in an accident, but to pick a risky hobby when you have responsibilities with children is just to careless for my liking.

Alot of bad choices were made by both the driver and the passenger which had a deadly result. Now both of their children will be the one's to suffer. Let this be a lesson learned to everyone to wear a helmet and to drive responsibly.

I totally agree with what you say here. More importantly - how come everyone feels so badly for him not the passenger?

And that's the real tragedy in this.

My understanding is both individuals left children behind without a parent.

Remember them in your prayers also.

These bike riders were all over the roads this weekend. Most were seen without helmets, proper attire, etc. I even saw one with a helmet, although it was proped up on the back of his bike,he wasnt wearing it!

This, as all accidents, are unfortunate and leave alot of hurt as a result, but are so preventable. These riders must show more responsibility and maturity on the road, especially when they are responsible for others.

Im sure speed was a factor in this accident, if he wasnt going fast, he most likely could have navigated the ramp, also no helmets were wore, why so careless???

Typical Charter Oak Terrace trash......Jeez. I hope his family have the bike insured becuaes I know he didn't and they'll have to pay for that little "accident"

too bad his dumba** doesn't know how to handle a "pocke bike" LOL

well, atleast it's one less criminal to worry about in Hartford.

Oh, yeah I know Adelaide is in Hartford, near the now-torn-down dirty projects Charter Oak...or was it Rice Heights.....the level of trash in there was all the same to me
