Sorry for all your losses ......

I've always had bikes and had tons of close calls . You always have to be reading the other guys mind to stay alive !

My friend has had at least 30-40 wrecks in the past . 2 were his fault. (drag racing ) .He just had 3 in the last month and a half on his brand new 1100 suzuki. Broke his arm last week ......

Cool button Greg !

I'm sorry to hear that. I gave up my Harley 10 years ago and can't say I regret it. I REALLY do miss the feeling and I with there was a safe place to ride. There really isn't. Hell, I don't even feel safe in a car any more.

It sucks to have a friend taken from you...

I have to agree. I've seen too many lives lost or nearly lost on bikes. Sorry for your loss Jon.

Sorry to here your loss Audio, God Bless. I finally threw in the street bike thing when Mike Carter "Fever Mike" had his accident. I said, "Enough" !!! My kids and life mean too much to me. Just yesterday I was going down to Extreme and on McMullenbooth road the traffic stopped. Just up the road I see a white sheet laying over a body with black boots coming out the bottom and alot of blood at the head covering. Turns out a lady in her 80's pulled out in front of him. Not a pretty site. I still have my YZ250F for the dirt but thats all i'm riding. No street bikes for me anymore. Dave Warden

Sorry to hear about your friend, you will all ways have memories.

I gave up riding street bikes 10 years ago, they are just to dangerous with cars and trucks on the roads. I too lost a very close friend on a bike.

I still enjoy motocross riding and the imfamous dunes, alot softer on the body.

my condolences to you and the family.

He was a friend if mine also

This kid was an extremely talented metalworker. He was a sheet metal fabricator and antique auto restorer. He had worked on many classics for the rich and famous all over the world including many projects for Ralph Lauren. He could make a fender for a Gullwing Mercedes out of raw sheet metal and spend weeks rolling it on an english wheel until it looked like a factory part. He was also into custom Harleys and his bikes were so unique that they always stood out in a sea of Harleys. One of his bikes was featured on "American Thunder" when they did a show on Laconia.

Johnny will be missed by many
