I am Kip's brother in law. I haven't logged onto this website in a while because it's quite difficult to digest his loss to our community, friends and family will linger for all forever.
For the sake of the children who have logged on to this wonderful site I will edit my words. I find your lack of sentiment apalling.
I'm sure you can read you idiot, this is a tribute to Kip as a person. My wife, mother/father in law, children log on to this from time to time. How dare you express your ignorant views here.
I would welcome an opportunity to "reach out and touch you", to discuss your views in more detail.
more often then not these motorcycle "accidents" involve what i call rice rockets racing down the street at incredieble speeds. you see them flying through traffic at 90 mph, weaving in and out of cars doing 30 mph.
i'm not saying this is one of those because all newsday said was that it was a 2000 yamaha.
but when you give a 21 year old kid a vehicle that has the ability to cruise at over 100 mph you might as well give him a gun with directions to shoot himself.
everytime one of these idiots ride between cars in stop and go traffic they are not only putting their lifes at risk but also innocent drivers.
how many of you see this everyday on the LIE and feel like opening your door?
these "nuts" drive like they are at the Daytona 500 and for the most part deserve the broken bones they receive.
