    First off i just want to say to this anonymous person, this so called crap on this blog is takin directly from the newspaper so if you want to bitch at someone bitch and the papers, and also did you not get taught to think before you speak? And i hope you know you have Pissed alot of people off including all of my family the stuff you said about my mother was not appreciated and the stuff you say about bikers is not appreciated.also if you have to put yourself as anonymous then you clearly should not have made the comment. if your going to be balls go 100 percent and say your name. as for you Bear, lets not stup to his level i know you were upset but that is no reason to tell some one to die but you were right of the heartless piece of crap you just forgot to add the word coward in your statement.

    “A-none-e-mouse” (Anonymous)I have to say that of all the insipid things you say in your “blogs” this has to have been the worst! Never mind that someone died, all you can come up with is life is a crap shoot! You remind me of a person totally removed from society…no friends…no companionship…no job…no compassion…no positive outlook of any kind…sitting at your desk, looking out the window at the world outside and being very afraid to go out into it and experience life as the rest of us do…and yet wasting “our” time by telling us all you can come up with is this person “took a chance” and rode a motorcycle. Other than that, her life had no “significance”…may you die (and soon)…and quickly be forgotten!

    What a terrible thing to say. A lady died and no matter what your opinion is she had family and friends. I agree that there are some bikers who have no regard for others, but, most of them are family people who just enjoy the freedom of riding and do respect other people. I don’t think loud pipes are the answer as you can’t tell where they are until they are passed anyway but, I must confess I don’t have a better idea. My sympathy to the family and it just should not happen.

      I agree with you, Hey U. These whiners instantly complain about something when HD is mentioned, regardless of the circumstances. If it had been a Honda Goldwing, would that have changed the outcome. I guess it doesn’t matter that someone died. I doubt they would be talking this crap if it would have been their daughter, out having a good time. Two pathetic posts.

      I cannot even express how disgusting your comment is! Mabey you would like to go to her funeral and say that to her loved ones. You are a real piece of work and should be ashamed of yourself.

      Who cares? I do for one. I don’t think I know any of the persons involved but it really does not matter because as fellow motorcyclist (biker if you want) I always feel a sadness when some is injured or killed while out living life and enjoying themselves. I’m not naive and think that all riders ride as safe as can be, but no time will I ever stoop to the level that you have. I would rather go for a ride and not come home then to sit online and troll the blogs. That would be about the lowest form of scumbag shithead actions I can think of. Have a nice life looser!
