Pray for me
I drive in howell
I will never understand a persons desire to drive a motorcycle.
i will never understand a persons desire to drive a car, ride a bike, walk down a street., or jump out of an airplane with a parachute. sounds like #2 needs a little excitement in their life!
I can understand the desire to ride a motorcycle. I used to many years ago. But due to the other drivers on the road, I stopped. I was not too keen going 60 miles per hour and have a car on my tail or pass me nearly within arms length or so.
Life in general is exciting enough…I’m not in any rush to do something extra to cut mine short, thank you!
well all that being said lets not forget the tragic accident that happened and to learn to be aware of all traffic and please pay attention.
MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY, AS I LOST MY SON WHO WAS 24YRS OLD AT THE TIME. HE WAS RIDING HIS MOTORCYLCLE AND A TRACKER TRAILER TURNED IN FRONT OF HIM. MAY THE LORD GIVE THEM COMFORT IN THEIR TIME OF GRIIEVING.
