Bitter sweet start to a
#1
A good friend of mine at work (female), left this morning for a four day weekend of riding the North Ga mountains with the girls. I think their was 5 or 6 of them, abut 2 hours into the ride on The Cherohola Skyway one of the ladies failed to navigate a turn and lost her life.Angel The lady was one of my ex's best friends, and I have ridden with her and the group. The friend of mine was involved in a life threatening accident herself a few years ago when a BMW rider crossed the center line and hit her head on. So needless to say she rides in the rear now and was a witness to todays events. So everyone keep all these Ladies in their prayers. The rest decided to come back home and be with their families and all arrived safely. Sorry for the downer, but just a somber reminder to be safe out there no matter if you are on 2 or 4 wheels.

I don't ride any more on the street but because of my previous experience, I'm a Motorcycle Safety Rep at my work. Safety for bikes becomes compounded with hazards. We lost a rider last year when a 4-wheeler made an illegal turn right in front of him. He was an extremely safe rider but had no opportunity to react.

Please let your friends know they are in my prayers as well.
