Did anyone know these 2 guys that were killed last night in Orlando? I am just curious, I am a fairly new rider and I can't imagine riding without a brain bucket, much less race in town over a 100 mph without one.

Two motorcyclists were killed and two motorists were seriously injured in a crash on East Colonial Drive late Wednesday, authorities said.
The Florida Highway Patrol said the collision occurred when a car pulled from Old Cheney Highway into the westbound lanes of Colonial Drive at about 11:55 p.m. The speeding motorcyclists smashed into the car.
Trooper said Yull Toro, 28, and Jayson Echevarria, 22, were killed at the scene. The car's driver, Frank Soto, 21, and a 16-year-old passenger were taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious injuries.
The car burst into flames, troopers said.
"We believe they were going over the speed limit, at or about 60 or 70 miles per hour," said Trooper Kim Miller, an FHP spokeswoman. "The red Honda pulled out from the stop sign and the motorcyclists attempted to apply the brakes and struck the driver's side-door of the Honda."
Saw this on the news the day before yesterday, very sad, the car didn't look like it was burned at all though and most of the damage was on the front end... Said they were going 60-70 on the news also.
