I suppose Davie will be billing the deceased for the emergency response. The cyclist lived in Pembroke Pines.

It's the 10% rule. You have to be 10% smarter than the piece of equipment you're operating. Rule obviously ignored.

If he were instead riding on the "Concerned One's" mass public transportation, he would still be (albeit still drunk) with us today.

Listen up middle age men: Don't think you can just waltz on out and buy a big motorcycle and ride it like there's nothing to it. If by 40 and you've never rode one before - forget it! You'll very likely kill yourself. In an emergency, the only thing that saves you on a motorcycle is either young fast reflexes or built in "muscle memory", that you learn from a very young age and decades of experience.

People just need to learn how to ride. Same goes for boats. I saw this guy trying to dock his huge sunseeker at a restaurant. He hit 2 other boats, then slammed the dock, then drifted into shallow water and got stuck. Sea Tow charged him $5,000 to pull his boat. That didnt include the damages to the other boats and dock. The entire time this happened, there were like 100 people eating on the patio.

It was funny. Anyway, most motorcyle riders, especially those new young yuppie wanna be badazz Harley riders, suck on their bikes.

I know what you mean. They crack me up. The Harley people can't ride with out a Harley logo t-shirt and no helmet to be in "uniform". It's a suicidal cult I think.

ya know its sad. not one of you here saw what happened yet you all judge other people. While having a helmet o any road is smart (even racers in cars like indy or nascar have a helmet) it is safe to say anyone should have one on. The fact is another rider is dead and chances are he would be here if he wore protection. I like many others are guilty of riding w/o one too. I don't get drunk when riding and I have been riding for years all over the world. So go on and rip into the crazy cults as you put it of riders who love freedom and are willing to enjoy what we enjoy as riders. RIP all our fallen brothers and sisters and a special shout out for out fallen brothers and sisters in the military

I'm starting to think that these articles are just cut and pasted by a bunch of non-English speaking retarded people. I find it difficult to equate "overturned" and "ejected" in any way with a motorcycle accident. Maybe it's just me...

My condolences to the family, my opinion is he was either drunk or inexperienced. Some people dont know how to corner on long curves, your head should be perpendiculer to the road.
Except for Sportsters and maybe V-Rods Harleys really dont corner well, especially after you lower them. You need to know the limitations of your m/c.

It was a Harley, so I doubt it.

I did see some guy go past me the other day, I was doing about 70mph so he had to be doing about 90-100, doing a wheelie. Great skills, stupid rider.

BTW: If harley made an airplane, would you fly in it?

I never did get the Harley T-shirt thing. I guess we want everyone to know we ride a Harley. No I dont wear them. Black shirts in the summertime are too hot. But if you ride an old bike like mine its a good place to wipe your greasy hands {hides the grease}.
