Lost a friend back home in Florida

A great guy I grew up with, worked with for about 8 years right out of high school. Part of a group of about 15 of us that all graduated around '85, all worked at the same hometown place and spent a LOT of time away from work together. We were a close knit group for sure.

He was out for a ride this morning and had a vehicle slowing down in front, didn't see the truck turning left in front of them and went to pass. He t-boned the drivers door on the truck, flew about 50 feet and was pronounced at the scene. Just kinda wrecked tonight......

Re: Lost a friend back home in Florida

Dang.

We had a rider killed here in Huntsville the exact same way not long ago. Truck in front of him was turning right. Other vehicle was turning left off of the side road in front of the truck to go the opposite way. Rider went to pass the right turning truck and hit the car head on.

Very sorry about your friend

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Thank you, all of you. We have all lost someone, or numerous people, to motorcycle accidents and it's always tragic. I choose not to live in fear, however, of what "might" happen so I will continue to ride.......but I will have a little more caution for a while.

I'm sorry for your loss, but perhaps information like this will help all of us make better decisions in the future.
