    This photo is unnecessary. The name was not even released and the family finds out from seeing this photo. You have no feelings for the family at all.

      This picture isn't even the bike that was involved in the accident. The bike pictured on mlive (check for your self) was a babber, looks like a road king. The media can't even get the right picture with the story.

        A babber? … Hopefully you meant to put bagger, and not bobber. That is most definitely a Kawasaki Vulcan on Mlive, not a road king. Anyways…

        Sad to see another brother down. Open up your eyes, cagers!!!

    I knew the man that died. Tho I have not seem him in sometime. He gave me great memories and Im certain he will be missed by those who were close to him. May he rest in peace and be remembered for the great things he has done so selflessly for others. Lets not argue about the bike he was riding or the way the media presented it, instead, please help if you can.
