Lost a fellow rider and friend last night
Well, I just found out tonight that one of my friends and fellow rider passed last night. Me and Bee were sitting at Hooters eating some wings and beer when one of my other friends from the bike shop came up and told me about it. I was floored because he was a cool kid and I mean kid because he was only 21 yrs old. I was just showing him on Tuesday how to wheelie his GSXR 750 because he was too scared to try them and now he is gone. I still cant believe this. May he rest in peace.
This is from the local news.
