Wow, such a tragic event. My heart goes out to these families, and I pray the gf will be ok. But plain and simple, these crotch rockets are not for country roads, where there are people walking, farmers farming their fields, hidden residential driveways, or deer, dogs, foxes, etc crossing the roads. My husband watched a biker get killed early one morning after he was going so fast, that a deer crossed the road and the bike split it in half.
I hope this isn't the kid that has been screaming up and down our residential road doing about 90mph or more. We figured it was a kid with a new bike, as we haven't seen it before. But even my 8 year old heard him and said that he was going to get himself killed because he was going way too fast. If it was, I'm sorry, but it was bound to happen. Nice guy or not. People need to respect the bikes and the speed.
I don't know if this even matters to you but Cassie (Matt's girlfriend) is doing much better and she is engaged. She always has Matt on her mind but she asked Matt to pick her husband and we think he chose Sean (her fiancÚ). Thank you for the nice words too!
