Brigette was an amazingly talented ICU nurse, so very young but so very compassionate. God rest her soul. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and all who knew her. She will never be forgotten

I hope more people will use caution about riding motorcycles after dark. I don't know if speed was a factor in these deaths, but I know that there are riders speeding excessively on 94 at 2 am. The state police sat out during the day a few weeks ago to catch speeders. About 15 minutes after they left, a whole group of motorcycles went by doing at least 20 over the speed limit and I was treated to a wheelie demonstration as well.

May God grant these two families peace in this terrible time and may no other families have to deal with this kind of preventable tragedy.

I wish people would not automatically think alcohol was a factor. There are things here that none of us who are looking for answers will never know. Bike week is starting in a couple of days so please everyone watch out for them, it should be done all the time but I know some don't.
Neil will be missed very much. My daugther is his cousin on her father's side. I've seen him grow up into a great young man. I will definitely remember him well especially the cute puggie face little baby I used to carry around. Speed was a factor and if he would have paid attention they would both still be here. I went to the scene on Sat afternoon by myself then with my daughter and her father & stepmother. I'm glad she has the extra support. On behalf of the Kuydendall Family, I extend thanks to the fire department (which is my own)for their assistance. Guys/gals, I know in my heart each of you wished you could have done something more but they were already gone-go on knowing that they didn't suffer.
Neil & Brigette, you're lives were cut too short, you will always be remembered- may you rest in peace. You are our angels now.

Everyone is ALWAYS saying "Watch for motorcycles". How about the people on motorcycles watch for other vehicles. At least twice a week I'm cut off by a motorcycle but if I were to hit someone on one I'd be the bad guy. People in this area just can't drive. Whether it's an auto or motorcycle. How about all drivers respect each other????

How do you get cut off by a motorcycle? If you are driving a car, it's impossible. Your car is a lot bigger than a motorcycle. Maybe you need to speed it up a little?

Thank you for the great words. It will be so hard tonight letting him go. I am Neil's cousin as well and it is very rough right now for the family and myself.

Easy, the motorcycle rider sits on your bumper where they are impossible to see, pass you on a double yellow and pull over into your lane a few inches in front of your hood. This happened to us on route 94 in June. He then proceeded to do the same thing to several cars in front of us. One time he passed while there were cars coming. The rider was wearing a backpack and shorts. I hope his parents or family sees this and does a little safety talk with him.

And we were already at the speed limit+, we just weren't doing 70mph+ on a rural two lane highway marked 45mph.

A motorcycle is a vehicle and as such needs to leave stopping distance exactly the way a car must.

You have my sincerest condolences. God bless your family and your friends. I can't help but think of my own sons, nephews and cousins as you talk of Neil. May you all be given peace and comfort.

I dont think its people cant drive, but more like people just no longer care about anyone but themselves....motorcylist, car drivers and tractor trailer drivers, everyone is the most important thing in the world and get out of my way ist he attitude.

And speaking of one of those type people I just mentioned in my last post, here comes Alice condoning the practice of speeding up and making sure that motorcyclist doesnt get in front of her, no way, i was here first, I'd rather hit you than slightly brake and say to your self, that guy sure is stupid and reckless, but Alices choice is to be the stupid one instead.......a famous comedian once said, " you cant fix stupid".

I wasn't saying to speed up so the bike don't get in your way. If you don't like someone following too close, pull over and let 'em pass.

Stupid would be to speed up when someone is trying to pass. Car or bike period. Plus there is a stiff penalty to pay if you intentionally speed up while someone is passing. What you would be doing is causing a catastrophe which is a bigger violation than passing or speeding.

And braking for someone that might be too close behind you is just an invitation for them to pass you.

And here comes stupid right back at you in the mirror....
