I fondly recall Chuck calling me into the garage like a little kid showing me his new 100th anniversary Ultra that he had traded in his super glide for. He hid the upgrade from his wife. lol He had this awesome playful kiddish quality to him. He was the kind of guy you just instantly liked. For all she knew it was the same bike under the tarp in the corner.

I have no words for this loss and I pry that his wife Linda can find the strength to make it through this senseless senseless loss. RIP Chuck
Thank you for posting. I am on a trip far way from home right now, and this gives me the somber reminder to stay vigilant.

Very sad indeed. A sobering reminder of how every time any of us leave the driveway on 2 wheels it's truly an ADV ride.
R.I.P. Chuck.

When I was in college I worked the parts counter for a Honda dealer. In those 2 years we had over a dozen customers or employees seriously injured or killed on motorcycles. Chances are excellent all of us will know at least one person in our lifetime that is killed on a motorcycle. Understand the risks and be as prepared as you can be. Sounds grim, but I have all the insurance and death\health related legal paperwork ready "just in case". Some days, I'll admit, the reality hits me pretty hard having lost a co-worker/good friend to a motorcycle/drunk driver accident, and I make a point to never ride when I feel like that.

Prayers for the family and friends left behind.

Sorry for your loss. I was rearended at a stop light on Friday in PA. No damage just tapped me enough that I fell over. I had been watching my mirrors and thought the guy behind had stopped so looked away. He decided to pull up more even though I was behind an 18-wheeler so we weren't going anywhere fast when the light changed. Old guy, I think he just didn't have a clue where the front of his truck was. He really wasn't coping well with the situation--I thought he might start crying. Probably the kids had been trying to convince him to stop driving and he was just beginning to realize that they might be right.

And do you really think the a person reading a newspaper article about someone else killing someone else, neither of whom they know, will have their behavior impacted one iota?

As for posters who think the rider may have been able to avoid this somehow: You don't ALWAYS have an out and sometimes a chain of events collapses around you. None of us were there or know all of the facts so it's impossible to judge whether or not the rider could have prevented this.

All we know for sure is that a good person was taken out and that his family and friends are suffering. Peace to all of them.
I do. 10 to 15 years in prison will get people talking. I also think that the first drunk driving conviction should be a month in jail, with a year for the second or the first if there were injuries. the drunks would keep drinking, but they'd taxi home.
