i am 27 i speed i am an AHOLE you would not like me if you seen me. my father died on a motorcycle nov, 4,2007. it was not a harley it does not matter what kind of bike it was. my father died because a JERK DECIDE to drive on the wrong side of the road. You're mother could die folling down a staircase and people could say what a dumd bitch. Or she could die from lung cancer and say she ask for it. so fuck you socalpaul.u must not drive or have any balls.so please reply!

My husband and I came upon the accident on Sunday morning and were very saddened to see all the bikers so upset. We were traveling in our motorhome and were happy to have a case of water on board to share with the man's friends. My husand rides a Harley and like the young lady said to me, "it could have been anyone of us." I am sorry for his family and hope that he friends will be okay.

Thank you for the water...it was very hot, and although we come prepared with water on our bikes, it didn't last long in the heat. Thank you for your kindness then, and your kind words now. Ride safe!

Another rider down, another bunch of idiots talking smack about the poor guy. Then they wonder why we have issues with people in cars. If you look at the postings here, you can see that there is a big difference between bikers and drivers.

R.I.P. to a fellow biker. Losing too many brother lately...

Thats whats wrong with LA. Too many self serving people that dont give a damn about anyone but themselves. Sorry the Daily News failed to entertain you with that story. I'm sure those that knew him didnt enjoy reading it either. For different reasons though.

Dan was a fantastic guy and a great motorcyclist. I would often drop by barger harley just to chat with him. My heartfelt sympathies to his family and friends. I am an attorney who handles motorcycle accident cases and am an avid rider myself. I am heartbroken that this has happened.

this guy was probably riding a harley. when will the world just drop them like buell did and run a canadian engine like rotax? they should outlaw all harleys because they handle so bad.
how stupid can you be we are talking about a life, a person, a father, husband maybe even a grandpa but was a good friend to many. If you want to talk about motorcycle go some where else....
