    I’m guessing no helmet and no body armor either…shame! I made the mistake once of not wearing a helmet, I was wearing light armor and gloves, I crashed and was lucky not to bang my head….I always wear a helmet now! Why did this guy like to tail people on his bike? Totally bizarre thing to do…..I hope his family finds some peace and is able to work through this.

    They should pass a law for helmets. We have to wear seat belts but they don’t have to wear helmets? Get real people, not wearing one is NOT cool!

    I think you’ve got his name backwards. MSNBC and the Star Tribune report Cleaveroy D. Benjamin.

      Yes, I knew him and his name is Cleaveroy D. Benjamin. Tragic loss and he will be missed by many.
