Edit: The Denton Record Chronicle has a pretty good story on the guy.

What are the lyrics to the song that pops into my head--"another one bites the dust"?

This man whom was killed was the husband of a dear friend of mine. Most of you might know her. She is the reporter for the Denton Record Chronicle who did the imformational pieces on the Barnett Shale Drilling and N.O.R.M. I know she worked closely with Devon Energy and maybe a little respect is due.

A helmet won't always save your life, but neither will a 6000 lb SUV. Sometime drivers of those die as well. What it comes down to is this: When God calls your number, you just gotta go. And if I had my choice of dying while doing something fun, (riding) or laying in a hospital w/cancer or other, lemme go out riding. If you fail to live life to its fullest because you are afraid to die, then you never lived at all.

5:22, does that mean that we are invincible until God calls our number? Can we jump in front of trains? Shoot ourselves in the head? Why is it the mentality of the risk taker set that THEY are "living life to the fullest" and others who don't add extra risk into their lives are not? Is cruising down the highway in a luxury sedan with the sunroof open and windows down on a beautiful day any less "living" than doing the same on a motorcycle that other drivers have a harder time seeing? Oh by the way on the whole God invocation, when little Amber was kidnapped off her bike years ago and butchered, you're suggesting God looked into his playbook and said, "hey, for this little girl here's what I have in mind"?

God will protect you unless it is your number. Cross over 1810 and 287 intersection with your eyes closed all you want. You will be safe unless your number is "up" with God and He calls you home.

6:44 You seem to have totally misconstrued my comment as concerns choice and lifestyle on motorcycles. Why exactly do you feel I implied something about whether you were or weren't living YOUR life to the fullest? Rather you simply read something into my comment which wasn't there,for the purpose of being combative. Such seems to be the nature of this underlying prejudice toward motorcycles many closed-minded rednecks seem to posess.

Maybe if you went back and read the comment again with an open mind you wouldn't be the hare- brained motorcycle-hater who ends up killing me.




p.s.- if you are that'll be okay cause I still will have gone happy and your insurance will have made my kids wealthy.

I assume you are also 7:26: ;the comment is equally as asenine so I won't bother insulting him/her too.

1:49 Thanks for reminding us of the realness of this story. We often forget the pain of those involved while we bicker about the pros and cons of motorcycles. As someone has pointed out - we are not the ones to decide how others live their lives. We hope that his life was full, that he lived it as he wished and that his loved ones have peace in their lives.

countless number of my brothers and sister who ride have died this very same way as a matter of fact 65 to 75% of all vehicle s motorcycle crashes are due to the vehicle driver being inatttentive and not watching what they are doing. and as far as the comment of other drivers having a harder time seeing if those drivers are waching out for the motorcycle then they will surley see the compact car school bus and large truck that also are on the road and they will also see the kid on a bicycle and the walker who is there also. and 6:44 i hope that you read this and remember to look out for all those who share the road and that you get some common sense about you and the remarks you make about those who ride

Misconstrued? This line was misconstrued?

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid across the line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting GERONIMO!”

I want to leave this world the same way I came into it: Screaming and covered in blood.
