Thanks Tim.

Dave's sister was severely injured in a car wreck 3 + years ago when another vehicle swerved into their lane. The head-on collision killed his Mom. His sister had more than 50 fractures. Their brother was paralyzed in a climbing accident in Alaska last year. Now this.

When I saw the bike was an XR setup for adv type riding I was afraid of who might have been on board and that they might have connections here. My condolences to the family and friends of this individual.

This is really sad. Then when one takes into account the really bad luck that has fallen on that family, this whole thing it even sadder.

My condolence to the riders friends and family.

Ride safe people.

So sad. Sometimes tragedy seems to hit families in multiplicity and sadness. Sorry for loss of your bud.

Jim,

I am sorry for your loss. I had been watching the news reports and this thread wondering if this might have been a good friend of mine. I was too afraid to call him and find out first hand. I was in the area today to visit the site and noticed someone had put some flowers where the accident happened. If you want to talk, I am available and lunch is on me.

Kevin
