unfortunately? guess you've never been on one. It has been my experience that those who fear them, have never rode on them. The rest of us love it....

It may be fun, but sensible people know your life is in constant danger riding a motorcycle. I hit 3 deer in my life. If I had been on a motorcycle, no doubt, I could have been killed or maimed.

Helmet laws should be repealed. Riding without one is crazy.

Hey love it, I don't care just don't make the rest of the world pay for you loving your bike. make sure your exhaust is legal, and isn't making a rackett.

But with a name like Thor, I'm guessing that you have screaming eagle pipes on yours, and you are still living in your mama's basement.

"Got what they deserved"....

How disrespectful of you to even type something like that. I knew both of these individuals and to think there are people like yourself in the world to stoop that as low as you did to type something like this is un-comprehendible

People die in motorcycle accidents, both with and without helmets on. Just as people die in car accidents with and without seatbelts.

I myself don't agree with the no helmet law, however I do believe in having respect for ANYONE who pass's in such a tragic way as well as respect for the family's of the loved ones.

Judy was Judy.... She had her ways! But, she would have gave the shirt off her back too anyone who was in need of it! She was a great person. As a police officer in Coaldale I delt with her MANY times. Judy protected herself too the end. It is a shame that she has passed on. I know she is in good hands with GOD. Probably showing him what to do. RIP my friend! You will be in my thoughts forever. To the Family my heart bleeds for you all!

Bikers that dont wear helmets look like fools. They just want to be a bunch of big shots. It just aint cool. I love to ride...always wearing a helmet. No one plans on an accident it just happens sometimes.

Helmets are a personal thing. Wearing one or not weraing one hurts no one but the person involved..same as wweraing or not weraing seatbelts (which I know many do not wear even with laws). I ride, and often wear one, but at times...the wind sure feels great one my face. Life is full of risks and chances. I say "LIVE LIFE!!!" After all, it could be over at any time, in any way.

No it does not only hurt the person involved. It tears apart families, messes up the person who is first on the scene because they have to see this site. First responders shouldn't have to completely clean up the mess. Yes, LIVE LIFE. Ride if you choose. God bless these families and all others who have to deal with a loss.
