LOst a friend today and fellow rider today

Ironically I think the last post I have put up on ADV was the same senseless type of tragedy. Riders struck from behind.

http://www.nj.com/independentpress/i...l_with_lo.html

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

Sad.

Whenever I come up on a suddenly stopped bunch of cars, I'll pull around them onto the shoulder or between them just so I don't become the meat in the sandwich...

Sorry for the loss of your chum, a fellow biker, someone's husband (and father as well perhaps).

A senseless way to pass.

Thoughts to his family.

Peace to you and peace to his family.

I hope in posting this tragedy someone else can learn and be saved from this situation.

One of my riding buddies says he never puts his bike in neutral at a stop, in case he needs to get out of someones way...

Sorry to hear about your buddy's passing.

Never forget to tell your loved ones " I love you" EVERY time you leave the house.

Sorry to hear about your friend and a fellow rider,godspeed and prayers to his friends and family.Well said to who said always tell your loved ones ya love em everytime ya leave the house.Sad my brother hasnt grasped this concept yet even tho we lost both our folks.1 more word of advice I always keep a hand on the clutch,foot on the shifter right hand on the front brake and I keep an eye on my rearview mirrors in case some on gets close and I gotta take off from a stop even if its over the curb.I rather have a broken leg then be dead.IDK if this is uselfull advice but being proactive cant hurt.1 again sorry for your loss of your friend.

Why is the penalty for negligent homicide/vehicular homicide so low? It may be charged as a misdemeanor in some states, and may have county jail time, or prison time, or no incarceration, but never long enough to send a message to the next fool driving while drunk, or driving while phoning, or driving while day dreaming, or doing anything except paying attention to his driving.

The reason that the penalties are so "low" for negligent homicide is that it is not an intentional act of harm.

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.
