Both of these men are friends of mine. One I haven't seen in a few years, but he's a great guy. I worked with him and his wife. Great people! I hope everything is well with him. Thoughts and prayers go out to him & his family.
The second man, Is also a great guy. We go back many years and have had good times. My family & I are worried about him. He has some serious injuries. I pray everyday he'll be ok. God be with him and take care of him.

What a waste of ASCII. I know at least fifty bikers (off and on-road) who would not hesitate to bust their foot off in your ignorant ass for making such a stupid and mean spirited comment.

After 47 years of life and 38 years of riding, I have come to the conclusion that motorcycle riders are some of the best and brightest contributors to society that you will meet. I will pray for my injured brothers.

I don't know for sure. I just know what I was told and that is one crashed into the other. What caused the crash I have no idea. I guess that doesn't really matter. What matters most now is that everything works out for the best.

Do you still ride at night?
Yes, I do. I am very, very cautious, though. Some people think I ride too slow, but I have succeeded in avoiding many deer because I was riding or driving slowly.

Peace be with them and may the lord heal them .

It amazes me how people that nothing about motorcycles or all the wonderful people who give their time and money to MANY charities that help families and children in times of need. MORON'S like johnny5 probably don't have a bike or know how to ride one. God speed to the families for a full recovery. Tell um Pete!

We take it day by day and as of today things are starting to look up for him, from the phone call I recieved today he has opened his eyes and moved his feet and hands. Little thing are what count the most, I have faith and I know my x-husband he is a strong man and he will beat this, his children need him.

I was out for awhile. Looks like some kids are quite worked up. Pete, those bars you mention,I'll stop by for a drink and a chat. Isn't Tuesdays Village People kareoke night? It's a date and puleeze wear those boots, woof,woof.
Seriously this a place to talk about a horrible accident that happened last weekend to my X- husband and his friend, and people like you show up just to add your 2 cents in when nobody really cares, it is very clear that you do not own or ride a motorcycle so you can not even imagine the the horror this family is going through. So for being gone for a while trust me no one missed you or your comments.
So seriously if you have nothing nice to say or a pray to get than get off this site and get yourself a hobby, or hay maybe a motorcycle.
