      You don't know jack stuff all, 99% of bikers live to old age if something else does not kill them like a Dumb ass in a car. And when I read disrespectful clap trap like your statement and that of other dip sh@ts that \drive\ bikes its no wonder the death toll is so high careless people causes accidents not bikes. How would you feel if your loved ones lost their lives in a game and the score line 1/0.

    People, please show some respect. He was a good man and a father, there is a son sleaping with tears in his eyes without a father. The accident was unavoidable.
