How sad is this?

Some sad news folks, last night my friend Trevor took his girlfriend out on his R1 . They were following a car when the driver indicated to go left , Trevor went to overtake & the car then did a u-turn in front of him. His girlfriend was killed. I haven't spoke to him yet , I know in that situation I wouldn't want all my friends phoning as it's all too raw . He's got his family around & is uninjured himself but what must his mind be like? He was so smitten with her & she with him, they were going to move in together next week & now it's all gone. I'm gutted for him. R.I.P Natalie .

Has anyone seen my marbles ?

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

Damn, I don't even want to think about shit like that. My prayers go out to your friend and all those involved and their families. Damn such a sad thing.

The only thing nessecary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

I just feel like I never want to ride on the road again. Not long since my best mate went down in front of me & now this. Roads are too full of idiots in cars .

Danno it has been one of those years for me as well...We all know what risks we take every single day by riding on the street....Whether you are going the twisites, drag strip, or just cruisin around town there are dangers everywhere...I wish you and your friend the best of luck getting through hard times like this.
