  • Deeply saddened that my brother and I have lost our father. My family greatly appreciates all the thoughts and prayer at this time of grief.

    • Deeply Saddened? I knew your father for years and shared many memories with him and his family. I was at his wake and his funeral and you and your brother should be ashamed of yourselves. You both walked around with shit eating grins on your face and shot mean looks at “his ” family. Those people knew and loved him and shared many happy memories with him and they deserved more respect than what you gave. It wasn’t a social event. Your brother or your husband couldn’t even carry your father to his last resting place. Both didn’t even look at the young men who did carry your father while shaking their hands. You should be very proud of yourselves. Your father would be very proud.

  • It is sad that anyone has lost their life due to an type of vehicle. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

    Here is what I do not understand: For EVERY accident, there is always a line about helmet usage. Why?
    It is NOT illegal if you don’t wear a helmet in this state. So no law was broken. Wearing a helmet DOES protect your skull and depending on design perhaps your face, but it is no guarantee you will survive in an accident..the other 95% of your body is unprotected on a motorcycle…so why is there always a heated discussion about it?

    It is a personal choice, NOT a law.

  • None of us are gonna make it out alive. We are all gong to die at some point. Maybe it’s just his time to go… Why can’t everyone just shut up and deal with the fact that we all make our own decisions and tempt fate in our own ways. Stop placing blame on anything or anyone & just exist. Accidents happen & regardless of circumstances these things happen. I’d rather go out in a blaze of glory than to wither away in old age with someone changing my diapers… To each his own. Live and let live people. Your opinions are your own & if you can’t say anything nice then stfu!!!!! Please & Thank You!!!!

  • My husband and i have been riding all our lifes,my brothers ride. My husband was hit,ran over left to die. I grew up in Florida and my husband’s accident was in Birmingham with a helmet on and the idiot talking on his phone. Usually it is because of someone else neglectgents with common sense. As for trading in for a boat. Accidents can also happen. Live life, not stay in your safty box. Everyone has their joy in life and life is a risk. Some just choose it to be on a Harley as we do. Been all over the country. Doesn’t mean it’s suppose to happen. Prayers out to this family

I travel either for work or pleasure about 60,000 miles a year. I always think I’ve seen it all, Until the next one. Accidents happen. Prayers for this mans family. Have respect on the road.

  • As a motorcycle rider of 50 years I can tell you that the majority of accidents are caused by drivers in cars not paying attention to what’s around them on the road. This has nothing to do with the story…it’s a sad day for his family and friends and it’s not the time cast out your uninformed opinions about the causes nor about about riding a motorcycle in general. Those who do so need to take a good look at yourselves for a man lost his life…be grateful that it wasn’t you or one of your loved ones.

  • Sometimes as you get older your night vision is not as good. The motorcycle headlight probably did a poor job of alerting him to the curve. By the time he saw it, he could not turn sharp enough. Condolences to the family.

  • Yes its still worth it, Its what we do, its who we are. No one really looks at the stats. I know guys that ride hundreds of thousands of miles, well into there eighties and never crash. There are a lot of factors more than, motorcycles are dangerous. One statistic I herd is 50 percent of all cycle fatalities is from an unlicenced rider, another large percentage is alcohol related. Talk to the guys that do the iron but rallies, those guy run 1000 miles a day fo days on end. I agree this area sucks for riding, 19 is a slaughter house. TRAFFIC = DANGER. Get out of the city and run out in the country, way out in the country. Let the good times roll, and enjoy it while you can. Just my opinion !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What a shame. People that are riding motorcycle’s around here are getting kill at an alarming rate almost everyday and it’s gotten crazy. People should think very carefully regarding the use of motorcycles because the way it’s going your it’s likely you will be killed and is it really worth it?

    Thursday, 26 May 2016, 12:19 pm
    • Yes, it is very sad. However, I would guess that the majority of the motorcyclists’ fatalities is due to Vehicles that are also on the roadway and the ignorance/stupidity of those driving these vehicles! This particular incident was not the case. Though, it seems that most of the time it’s a vehicle involvement at their fault of the incident/accident and not the motorcyclist.

      • The four fatal motorcycle accidents in my neighborhood (most recent last week), didn’t have another vehicle involved.

      • I beg to differ Doodle as several of these motorcycle accidents im reading on RNRF were the only vehicle involved. So whats that got to do with other vehicles on the road? dumb comment im thinking.
