Yep, I lost a great friend just a year ago to a motorcycle accident. With motorcycles it’s more of a matter of when rather than if, sadly. Especially in NY


Motorcycles are glamourous and exciting but just one little mistake, (by you or someone else) and you’re a goner.

Condolences to the family. Very sad.
