Thank you everyone for offering your help in this time. Rob (my other riding partner) is in Lexington, KY for the night. He and I both needed to pull over a few times during our rides towards home. I've been a paramedic for 17 years and I have seen more than my fair share of things I wish I could forget. Yet nothing prepares you for this.
Thank you all again for kindness in both deeds, offers and words.

Mike

I'm really very sorry to hear about you experiencing such tragic event, Mike. Please take care the rest of the way home with your friend.

Mike - I'm devastated to learn of this. I'm at a loss for words
- my heart goes out everyone involved.

I'm kind of equidistant between VA and St. Louis. I have 2 trailers. I'll help any way I can.

Our thoughts and prayers go to you, his family and everyone involved.

I live near ST. Louis and also have a trailer and could help out.

I haven't had too many Beemers, I just don't have enough time.

My heart felt condolences on the loss your your riding partner. The bonds we have with riding partners are strong and their loss is often as deep as would be a family member. I have suffered a similar loss in the past, as I suppose several others on this board have done.
I would like to daylight the routine bias in the media when a cager kills one of us. "As the truck came across the highway, Gosnell said it struck a 2015 Triumph motorcycle." You will note that the trucker did not strike a human being, he 'only' struck a motorcycle. The investigation is investigating an equipment failure as the cause rather than a human error because we all know that cagers have acute awareness of motorcyclists so, obviously it MUST be equipment failure. Makes me sick.
Medic Mike, sending positive thoughts to your and yours. Take care.


Red,
Give me ambiguity or give me something else.
