    Default Local rider killed yesterday in Torrington...

    http://www.registercitizen.com/artic...8906085833.txt

    Didn't know the guy, but sad.

    Guy an on R1 without a helmet

    Trauma to head (go figure), and his torso.

    My sympathies to his friends and family, but man... Gotta wear that helmet!

    Ride safe everyone!

    The last time someone put up an unknown rider death we were told not to unless it was a person you knew, family, friend etc.

    I did NOT know the rider, I just came across the accident scene on my way to volleyball. If it's against the rules I apologize, and mods or admins feel free to delete. *shrug*.

    We try and keep posts like this down to min... If everyone posted about and accident they saw or read about this site would be an obituary with "did anyone know they guy on 91 on a yellow sport bike that crashed" posts

    Because I'm fairly certain NOBODY here needs a fucking reminder that you can get killed riding a motorcycle, especially while not wearing any gear.
