    Good friend of mine died in motorcycle wreck.

    Got the news 2 days ago.

    Long story, but basically he was riding up to daytona with about 10 other bikers. They all have choppers, a very unsafe bike to begin with. My friends front wheel locked up, bike threw him off and the guy whom was behind him (a very close friend of ours too) ran over his head. Guy behind him is in critical condition and my friend died in the helicopter. He left behind a wife and 3 kids, his eldest son is my good friend whom I grew up with, the funeral was this morning.




    RIP

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    It was very sad for my entire family. He was like my uncle and like a brother to my mom and dad. His children were my childhood friends, they are all really $#@!ed up right now.

    I know what it's like to lose a really good friend. My sincere condolences. It sucks a lot but just remember all the great times and live a great life for him. Also, I'm sure he'd want you to be there for your other friend and both families. All of them, and you are in my thoughts, man...like I said if you need anything let us know.

    Wow. Sorry to hear that.

    Any idea how the wheel locked up? Was he wearing a helmet?
    Never thought I would see the day...

    This isn't an instance where you change the law to protect people from themselves. It's a sad accident. People should have the freedom to choose if they want to wear a helmet or not.

    Aweful. Sorry for your loss.
    I also wanted a bike really bad. The day before I was supposed to go to the dealer and pick one up my buddy was in a really bad accident riding his bike. Changed my mind really quick.
