Yet morons keep riding. Darwinism at work. If someone pulls out in front of me in my car, they get smashed and I brush the airbag dust off. Motorcylist die. You really have to be a selfish idiot to ride.

Shut your mouth "Oh well". Neil was a great guy and a Marine I came up through the ranks with and served in Iraq with. Selfish for riding motorcycles? Thats the best you have for honoring someones (son, brother, nephew, friend, hero)'s with. Learn some f*****g respect.

Semper FI Mike and I agree "oh well" is an a$$h*(&. I also ride and am not a selfish idiot. Sounds like "oh well" cant get any and has nothing better to do then put down riders. My biggest worry when riding are idiots like "oh well" that dont care about thier fellow man or women. To the parents of Neil there is a group of MC riders called Patriot Guard. I am sure that since Neil was a marine they would be proud to provide a flag line and escort if you so desire.

So, now you are a "MORON" for riding a motorcycle? It may have been the only means of their transportation, or it may have been a pleasure ride. Ones heart must go out to the deceased and their family!

And you really have to be an idiot to post a comment like this one. Think about it if you don't like motorcycles stay off of them how hard is that to figure out?

Is it possible a rider falls asleep on a motorcycle?

Guy hits a pole..terrible..or going to fast?

Either way people on cycles have no protection and sometimes are hard to see....for those who died..I cry for you. In heaven no one dies.

I think it is sad when anyone dies on the highway. However, riding a motorcycle increases your chance of dying in the event of an accident. No question of who loses if a car and a bike tangle. And those who ride without protect helmets and gear... sorry folks, they ARE selfish. They want to enjoy the feeling of being free, the feel of the air rushing by and through their hair. Their loved ones might like the feel of their heart beating ten years from now but they won't get it.

OMG You are a moron..I am going to throw this at you and it is directed at your stupid a$$. Suppose a tractor trailor driver said that hey if the car pulled out in front of me they get smashed and they keep going...You would disagree with this and say people have to keep driving right? You are probably the dumbest a$$hole I have ever read a post by... Keep your stupid unfounded ideas to yourself dumba$$!!!!!!!

I try to warn all those I can that riding a motorcycle on the road is very dangerous. Its not fair to the loved ones who have to experience the awful untimely deaths of these people. Riders, think of your families before you get on the road. Stick to off roading with ATVs. There is simply no room for mercy when a rider crashes. There are 2 types of cycle crashes : one when a vehicle cuts in front or pulls out in front of a bike, the other is caused by reckless drivers.

Why do motorcycle riders forget this? I will tell you why? It's just plain selfishness. They want the 'freedom' of the moment more than growing old with their loved ones.

Unfortunately the world is not the same as it was 10 years ago. The roads are overcrowded and sometimes, yes, we do think we are immortal. No matter the circumstances, none of these people woke up thinking they would die that day or intended it. I know one of the victims and his family is in shock. Did he want that, of course not. I realize this is a discussion board, but at least have a responsible discussion and not blame the victims or dishonor their memory.

Seven dead? Unfortunately, all sorts of questions will be raised. Were they impaired; were they speeding; were road conditions bad; did a motorist contribute to the deaths; did they have helmets on, etc.?
I don't ride. The closest was someone taking me for a spin on a Triumph Bonneville almost 40 years ago. I was never told what you're supposed to do as the passenger. Needless to say, the cyclist scared the pants off me with the acceleration and fish-tailing that ensued.
I am truly sorry for these deaths, no doubt needless, but it seems as though all understanding of and respect for the road have been abandoned...from cyclists passing on the right, to motorists not even seeing that glaring headlight at the stoplight or stopsign, to both parties not understanding simple physics and maintaining safe distances between vehicles.

I guess those who like to ride don't want to acknowledge the truth.

To Truth Hurts and Why.
I love my family and they love me. We all know the dangers in riding a motorcycle, driving a car, flying or just walking across the streer.
If people only ever did things that were safe we all would be walking.
By your account people that ride motorcycles are selfish. What about those of us that serve our country and are willing to go to war to defend it are we selfish? We coould be killed in some battle doing what we said we would do.
I do both so I must be one selfish Basterd by your reasoning. I have been riding a motorcycle for 24 years and serving our country for 14 years in the Air Force.
Semper FI Mike and GOD BLESS your Family.
