    Hello Fellow Motorcycle Riders: I pray for the riders recovery. The rest of us need to spread the word: (1) Take the MSF course. (2) On curves: Slow down before you get to the curve; make your path--> "outside-inside-outside"; Look ahead; Press; Lean; Roll. (3) Never cross the center line (4) Intersections and Curves are the most dangerous places--be extra cautious. Share the road. Ride to live and live to ride.

    Myself and 5 others arrived at the scene moments after the crash had happened. We also were on motorcycles. It was a very emotional scene. We all gathered around and held hands and started praying. Prayer seemed to be the one thing that was needed the most. Our prayers are still with the families and the victims of this horrible accident. I pray that the families and the victims will look to God to provide them with the comfort and peace that is needed during this time in there life. God Bless....

    I would hope that everyone has those involved in their thoughts and prayers. THe talk about motorcycle riders being "organ donors" is just absurd being that people were injured in this accident. LETS PLEASE SHOW SOME RESPECT TO THE FAMILIES OF ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN THIS WRECK. SO TO "FATBOY" AS HE CALLS HIMSELF, Lets Show a Little CLASS, AND BE RESPECTFUL!!!
