Not that it matters but I will point out in the article that it did quote his friend as saying he had a passion for speed and they feared that may have been what killed him.
And to those that don't think that a death close to Mother's Day will effect his mother are wrong. Any day of the year is bad to have a loss like this but when it is coupled with a holiday it does make it worse.
I'm the sister of the girl (Cassie) who was in the accident with Matt. I was sitting right there when Matt told my mom and dad that he would promise he would never go fast with Cassie on the back with him. Handson was trying to cover up for his grandpa. I don't give a crap about how "fast" Matt was going, the man on the tractor shouldn't have been on the road in the first place with him having his license suspended. So no... Matt essentially going that fast with Cassie on the back because she was already nervous with being on the motorcycle. Matt knew Cassie was nervous therefore he wouldn't have gone fast.

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!

Nice try - 18' of skid mark? It's more than likely because the poor kid wasn't paying attention. Your post was almost believable until you made that last sentence about the farmer & his family - you're an idiot!
Your the idiot. I'm the sister of Cassie and that guy is right. The mark was 18ft long. And don't get me fricken started on the paying attention part. Matt told my parents he wouldn't exceed the speed limit and honestly did you even say that? Matt was definitely paying attention to the road with my sister on the back of him. The tractor pulled out in front of them so get over it you pathetic loser.
