Lost 2 brothers in Virginia in the last 3 days

Sorry to report that we have recently lost 2 Yamaha brothers to motorcycle accidents here in Virginia in the last 3 days. Both 22 years old. One of them definetly going to fast on a four lane highway lost control and hit the guard rail, then plunged 50 feet to his death onto the pavement below.
The other the full story has not yet been released but there was a full size Chevy van involved and the driver is going to be charged in the motorcyclist death.
Rest in peace brothers, our thoughts are with you... And to everyone else ride safe and keep the rubber side down...

RIP to all of the fallen riders.

What is disturbing me though, is SO MANY of these accident/RIP threads lately have involved riders with complete disregard for their own safety and public safety. When are people going to realize that there is a time and a place for these kind of shenanigans, and it's NOT on a public street. I guess death finally caught up with them, I pray that it's not gonna catch up with the riders on this board who push the limits on the street.

If you want me to "find Jesus" I'm gonna need a shovel and a map - Me
