I am so very sorry for your loss & for those who got hurt. I have epilepsy & this is the reason why I would NEVER get behind the wheel of a car. I could ruin several lives in a minute. I hope the injured get well. I live in Fl. & the accident happened about an hour away from me but we never heard what happened to the bikers & if they got better. They're in my prayers

Is there any benefit that will be held in Brevard County? I live in Palm Bay but as I said I have epilepsy so I can't drive. The only one who could get me there is my 16 year old daughter & she's not allowed in bars. If there is PLEASE contact me at fd1941@aol.com

Believe it or not, that is from what I hear very true. I don't know anyone from any group & to be very honest wouldn't even know if I did but I live in Palm Bay Fl & the bikers here (I don't know if thery're outlaw or not) do ALOT of charity work. One group that I've heard of that is an outlaw group does alot of charity work for kids in hospitals

So true. I have epileptic seizures & I would never get behind a wheel. I'm sorry but if you ask me, the law is stupid. All I have to do is lie to motor vechile & say that I haven't had a seizure in a year & with no questions asked, I'd get my licence. If that person had seizures before, they never should have been behind the wheel

Woman biker, have they all healed? I heard 4 were in critical condition, but I'm praying they're out now. I don't care if they were outlaws or not(to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure what that means) but I pray for anyone who needs help. I prefer to think of outlaw bikers as a justice group. I hope I didn't offend anyone

Motorcycle ride helps troops
July 24, 2008
OSCEOLA COUNTY - The fourth annual USO Operation Care Package Benefit Ride is scheduled for Sept. 14.

The 80-mile motorcycle ride through the county begins at 10:30 a.m. at Osceola Heritage Park and ends at noon with lunch, a silent auction and a custom and classic bike show.

The cost is $25, with all proceeds benefiting U.S. armed forces around the world. Viola Pearce, founder of the benefit ride and an Osceola County resident, began the program in 2005.

Since 2001, the Operation USO Care Package program has distributed more than a million packages, which can contain prepaid international phone cards, snacks, sunscreen, disposable cameras, toiletries, compact discs and other requested items.

This year's benefit ride is dedicated to St. Cloud's Jason Burnett, a 20-year-old lance corporal who was killed with three other Marines in an accidental crash when their tank plunged off a bridge during a combat patrol in Al Anbar province, Iraq, in May 2006.

Nearly 700 people registered for last year's ride, and about $36,000 was raised.

I just wanted to post this because it was very upsetting to me how stupid some of the comments have been on this forum. I have many friends that do charity runs inculding some of the injured mentioned in this forum. I did not appricate the ingorant comments made by some.
very concerned

If it is possible could you please contact the victims that were involved in the accident with Tom Romeo and let them know that our Hearts and Prays have been with them from the beginning. This was a terrible accident that impacted all families and Tom's family tried to contact three attorneys to sue his doctor for malpractice. Tom's doctor did commit mal practice and she should have her license taken away. All three attorneys said it would cost too much money because the case is so involved. If any of the victims could find a lawyer who will take this mal practice case, Tom will cooperate fully and give the victims all the proceeds from the law suit. He will sign whatever papers necessary to release all the proceeds to the victims. thank you

I have read over these post a million times in the last few months not knowing what to say. This man was a close relative of mine. Very close. He never meant to hurt any of the people that were injured in this accident. He said over and over if there was anything he could do to help them he would. Whoever wrote above me obviously knew him as well and knew he wanted to sue his doctors and give his money to all the people he injured. Unfortunatly he couldnt handle the pain any longer and past on in august. My fiance has a motorcycle and i know what its like for people to not appreciate you on the road i am telling each and every one of you he meant no harm to these people he did not intentionally hurt them its called an accident for a reason i wish all of you would stop writing these harsh hurtful things our family is suffering as well and to read horrible things like posted on this page is terrible. I just want you all to know we are sorry for your pain and suffering and we hope you can all feel the same compassion. Hopefully you all understand were we are coming from we wouldnt want to hurt anyones feelings in this post.

First off helmets do not prevent injury to any other body part except the head. They do not prevent injury to anything below the neck.
Statistics show that less than 1/5 of all motorcycle injuries are to the head. An HJC 3/4 helmet can produce cervical spine injuries. I know, Mine did it to me at Daytona bike week, when a drunken cager smashed istopped at a stop

This is a tragedy that happened on the hwy in FL. Doesn't matter wriding, could have been a regular family, husband, wife with kids & in-laws. The fact is a person had a seizure & passed out & caused the accident injuring all of these people on motorcycles.
As by law in order to get a driver's license someone with a seizure disorder is supposed to let the DMV know they have this disorder. People who have active seizures, usually from epilepsy are supposed to claim they have this disease & have to state the medications they are taking for this. Depending on their meds they sometimes are not given a driver's license due to what just happened this past weekend.
So some of you are putting down the victims because of the club they belong to? How stupid is that? Those bikers could have been YOUR family members whether on bikes or in a car. Who they are has nothing to do with the accident at hand and the injuries that have occurred here.
Wearing a helmet has nothing to do with the types of injuries either. Even with a helmet on, you are still prone to critical injuries. Do not think that you are that protected just because you have a helmet on, or you wear a seat belt in your car. You have just as much chance of death or serious injury coming at you either way.
And to accuse a group you know nothing about, to be affiliated with any organization out of the ordinary is totally stupid.
Say prayers for the injured. Go to their websites and let them know you are thinking of them.
Remember this could be your or your loved ones.
