I saw this on another message board and thought that this was such a tragic loss for the father.....

That is terrible...imagine the guilt the father is going to have to deal with now...not that it was his fault in any way but you know he will feel like he was responsible somehow... :(

Unfortunately, he was thinking like a 13/14 y.o. My sympathies are with his family.

The unfortunate thing is that there are a lot of teens who do things without thinking of the consequences....perfect example how about this guy....

I just hope that this wasn't the first time he rode that bike. Seems like he was skilled enough to ride and surely he didn't learn that on his own. Maybe Dad gave him some lessons without enough warning not to go on his own. I know a lot of parents whose negligent attitudes border on the criminal.

Why do they have to call out sport bikes? How about bikes? Just motorcycles. Why can't they just say "motorcycles" in one these stories. I hate reporters/editors/press like this that sportbikes out for no reason. :bitchslap

Princeton's father is a competitive racer. His mother told authorities and Local 2 that they had both warned their son about the dangers of sport bikes.
RIP though.

They didn't even say what it was, 600, 750 or 1000. If they are gonna point out it was a sportbike they might as well say what it was...

It's too bad about him though.

Required by law or not, people, espeacially parents, should stress how important a helmet and proper riding gear are before even getting a motorcycle. RIP kid.

Exactly. I always leave my 636 key in the ignition because I know there's no children at my house and no one is dumb enough to take my 10,000 dollar bike for a joy ride. It's easier for me when I've got all my gear on to just start it up without fishing for keys, and I'm less likely to lose it.

However with my stuntbike, I keep the key on my car and house ring, because I know someone might come over and think, well it's a POS and has an engine cage on it so even if I didn't wreck it I can't hurt the bike. I don't care if you hurt the bike or not I don't want someone with no motorcycle experience riding a 15up 600cc sportbike.

Who leaves the keys to a sportbike at home with an unsupervised teenager?
most parents can gauge what their kids will and wont do, based on how they act, previous problems/or lack of them, etc
