    Gotta be careful with those big loud motorcycles. Gotta calm your ego when it comes to safety.

      The man who lost his life did NOT have a big ego that needed to be calmed. Think before you put something about someone you know nothing about.

    RJB you must be a very lonely , bitter, POS.

    • RJb says:


      I never directly replied to you. Who’s lonely now? Next time tell your friends to be safe on donor cycles. Maybe you could have saved a life.


    • RJb says:

      Oh one more thing, Bev.

      Glad your friend only killed himself instead of taking another life.

        You really are a sack of s*** dude. These were very kind people who have shared there home to all kinds of friends and family including her grandkids friends. The death of an elderly man and the loss of a love for an elderly woman is not the time to share your horrible comments about people’s egos and (vulgarity deleted) motorcylce safety. Think really deep and hard about how A HUMAN life was taken. You animal.
