Get over it!

WOW! Check out this guy's attitude. What a tragedy, oh my God.
And we complain about wobbles. shift linkage, radios, etc. Get over it!
My thoughts and prayers are with him.

Did y'all click on the link in his sig line that shows the pics of his bike? Wow!

From his sig line:
'05 R12GS - in a wad


(The bottom right pic does alarm me, however.)

Saw that. What kind of parenting is that?

Of course, you and I are assuming that's his son. But I think it's a safe assumption. Either way, any kid that age gives a camera the finger in front of me is going to hear about it. And I surely wouldn't be posting it on the web.

That pic is almost as sad as his recent story. Confusing times we live in...

I am with the Rock man. Execution. Plain and Simple.

That is what scares me the most.

On the ADVRider site, giving the finger in a picture is considered the "ADVRider salute" and "Greeting". Also the anacronym FYYFF (#### You You #### Face)

Its not meant to offend.

Yup - several "communities" out there where such things are not only normal, but expected.

I took a little time and read through this guy's posts from the point above forward. His attitude is truly full of grace. Never once does he call for the execution of the person who changed his life. Instead he faces his new life with the kind of mettle we all hope we would have in a similar situation. This is a truly inspiring story.
