      1. Kelly Monson says:

        Keep your rude comments to yourself. As if this isn’t hard enough for the family and friends of Omied. Completely unnecessary for you to use the word “duh” as if he was dumb or something. I’m very offended by this.

    Motorcycle + Booze = Disaster
    Lost 3 freinds in my lifetime. If you bike, half the legal limit is flirting with trouble.

    This is a very sad loss. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. Every biker knows it is dangerous to ride, but we each choose to do so. Let’s concentrate on our sympathy and leave the criticism out.

  14. MS says:

    Omied will be missed. He was a good dad to his daughter! I wish he would have been more careful! I am truely sad that this accident happened. He will miss so many good times watching his daughter grow up. I pray he will watch over her from above. He now can be her guardian angel from above. God speed and wishing you rest in peace. Don’t worry we will make sure your daughter has the best of everything. Grandpa MS

    Very unfortunate. Motorcycle riders take note: you’re putting a lot of faith in the motoring public by riding a motorcycle when everyone else is driving a car. The odds are already stacked against you…don’t drink and ride down the road at warp 2. You’re only gonna win that gamble so many times.

  16. Roxxie says:

    R.I.P Omied. You will be missed to young for life to end, so sad! My thoughts and prayers are with your family and your little girl.

  17. FellowRider says:

    Had been into a terrible accident myself when my wife was pregnant with my 3rd. It’s not that I don’t ride anymore, but I am a different rider now. My deepest condolences to the family. Future riders take note, while it’s fun and cool to ride a motorcycle it’s not for everyone. Solid judgement and mental sharpness is paramount when you are riding a motorcycle.
