Sad.. Thoughts go out to his family...
We have year round riding here in Arizona, and so are treated to 2 or 3 of these stories in the news every week..
Saw a Goldwing rider one time.. Machine was upside down and smoking where it lay, slammed into the trees, paramedics working feverishly on a fella 15 feet from the road while his friends consoled each other and looked on.. That was up by Flagstaff.. Lake Mary Road ..He didn't make it..
It's always a tragedy..
But ...They also have year round hiking here in Sunny AZ too.. Seems as if more people go down from hiking as do those who get into trouble on bikes..
They say, on two wheels you make your own luck, so.. Yes.. Please... Having seen the aftermath ..Ride like you are invisible, and Stay Vigilant..
But, for God's Sakes.. Please throw your hiking boots away! In Arizona anyway, Hiking can only be equated with playing Russian Roulette!
