My friend was riding this motorcycle. Here's the scenario...Friend and another couple were coming home from Dahlonega. As they were about to turn onto 19/129N to cross the mountain a couple of crotch rockets whizzed by. My friend, being the man he was, just had to take off after them. The other couple fell behind of course but followed. When the crotch rockets whizzed by the state trooper, he pulled out from the left hand side of the road in pursuit. My friend came around a curve just at that instant and hit him in his passenger side door killing him on contact and breaking the officers arm.

Please keep his family and friends in your prayers.

Prayers for all involved, it sounds like a horrible accident. Prayers for the mans family and for the State Trooper who never thought this would occur while doing his job.

He was my neighbor and friend and will missed everyday. I feel bad for the people that did not get to know him before he left us. Please keep his family in your prayers.

Friend- sorry to hear about this incident.
I don't know what you mean by this part though:
"My friend, being the man he was, just had to take off after them."
To what end was he 'taking after them'?

I've heard he was on an R1, is that right?

If the Patrol car was turning into traffic and got hit (broadside I would suppose), the impact must have been quite terrific to break the officers arm.
One would think so anyway.

Terrible thing. Really sad.

Mike, he rode a Harley and just hated it anytime those crotch rockets or any other bike passed him. He felt like he needed to catch up to them and pass them back I guess.

This man is the father to my neice and nephew. I agree there are things he did that were not always the best, but he is part of someones family and they do not deserve this harshness.
I have no clue what murder you are talking about. I would not think he was capable of that. Who was she?

My Gosh, this comment is so uncalled for!! It doesn't matter what you believe happened to your mom. I don't think your mom would of approved of this comment either!

Do you have proof of this murder or whatever you call it? I'm sure people could pull out of your closet some things that could be twisted and make you look terrible. You need to think about that before you put out such harsh comments!
