    You folks are just hateful. Poor dude was probably trying to move up in the pack to get with some of his buds. He was human and he was doing something for others: raising money for cancer patients. On the other hand, you are just dung, trashing a dead person and wasting the air you breathe with hate filled comment.

    You people are unbelievable. An accident that claims a life and all you can do is make a mockery of it? Your life has to be pretty pathetic or you are so nieve that it isn’t even funny. You people ought to be ashamed of yourself. The man lost control of his bike. It’s not showing off it being another evil co evil. God only knows how YOU are going to be judged. On how you die.


    He could have been a leader of the ride and moving back to the front to help with traffic control..either way, a tragedy, and the comments on here show the dignity of some people.wasnt aware there was so many perfect people around here!!
