pblack - What a stupid and caustic remark. However, your misuse of English does give a hint concerning your intelligence. Two corrections - dont has an apostrophe in it (don't) and doesn't is the correct term you should have used! Also, what's a "cicus"?

I am so sorry for this young motorcyclist losing his life in such a tragic accident.My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who knew this young man! On a different note.....I live on a very busy highway, at least 2-3 times a day we have a motorcycle fly by our house doing at least 80-90 mph ( we are in a 40mph zone) just 2 days ago there was one that was going this fast and passed a tractor trailer and bus!! Come on people slow down...or you may end up just like this young man!

Your all rude besides the person who said they feel sorry for him. I personally knew him and to make an asshole remark like '' no trainging wheels'' is rude. Im sure you would love it if someone you knew died in an accident and people felt the need to make smart ass remarks about it. Anyone dying is nothing to make rude smart ass comments over.

I wish that the media would at least get their facts correct. Chris died Sunday night, not friday and he wasn't drunk!! Family and friends read these posts and it would a comfort for them to at least get the facts of their loved ones death correct.

His friends and family may read this and this site allows people to post such awful words. Also, in the same regard, the media should at least attempt to print the correct information. He died Sunday night, not Friday and there was no booze involved.

He will be missed greatly by all that knew him. For the ones posting such horrid things, you should be ashamed of yourself. If you were just going to say something like that, why take time out of your life to do it?

My heart goes out to Chris's friends and family.

Be at the Hemlock Grill tonight at 9pm for a candlelight vigil to honor a life that was cut too short.

"Not sure is alcohol was a factor"???
Funny, how in the City, the RPD has some magic powers in factoring this, and they are able to tell us right away.
are you serious

wow!!!! I canot believe some of the comments people have left! I cannot imagine ever making comments like these about anyone. I knew Chris from high school and he was one of the nicest most kind hearted people I met. It makes me angry that people would make such rude coments about such a tragedy. His situation could have happened to anyone an people take that for granted.My heart goes out to the family and friends of Chris.

I have never been SO upset; I can't believe how rude some people are!!!! Do you not understand that a wonderful and caring young man just lost his life! And his family and friends are stuggling to get through each day. How dare you say anything rude about Christopher or the accident. Alcohol was NOT involved it was a terrible accident and is a tragedy.

We need to post loving messges about Christopher and if for some reason you can't do that, then don't leave a post.

Christopher is my cousin and he will be deeply missed...

I love you Christopher...

I just want to say that there was no alcohol involved. I am his cousins girlfriend and him and i were with Chris not 10 minutes before his accident. We were the last to say goodbye. I hope that people keep him and his family and friends in their prayers. I didn't know Chris well but from what i did know he was a wonderful guy and was there for anyone. He was a good driver and was NOT drinking. So please get the facts right. He will surely be missed.
