    Fatal motorcycle accident Yesterday. Co-worker Hit by a individual that ran a red light. Tim's estimated speed was 100 MPH plus. Car that hit him in the intersection 40 MPH. He went airborne and landed into another car. Died on scene. Folks this accident took place around 5:00 am still dark outside. Tim was one of these guys that always had to outrun everybody. Believe that he was superman on a bike. Rode mostly sport bikes and was always bragging about going over 150 MPH. His riding ability did not match his machines. His lack of common sense and bad judgement got him killed. When I heard the news yesterday at work was not surprised at all. I feel for his wife and two daughters. I very seldom go over 60 MPH while riding at night. When going through small towns at night i ride about 5 MPH under the speed limit and even slower while approaching even a green light. Tearing up the pavement is fun but a little common sense and safety especially at night allows you to watch the sunrise.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Yeah too many unknowns at night. All it takes is a board in the road or retread etc... definitely slow down approaching intersections

    RIP Tim, Prayers to his family.

    I love the performance of the Rocket, but my wisdom is to use the performance to get out of trouble spots not into them.

    Sad for the family.
    We all know that these bikes are capable of getting us all. May we all ride safe first ----- then pound it when it's clear.
    sonny I know you ride in the dark a lot stay safe.

    RIP Tim
