    Well, Captain Colostomy, I lost a leg while riding my Yamaha XS750 (have someone look it up for you) home from work in June 1991. I was hit by a driver who “didn’t see me.”

    Start seeing motorcycles sounds like a good idea to me.

    Maybe you should put your alleged brain in gear before letting the clutch out on your mouth. Even by the unfortunately low standards we need to apply to you, you’re retromingent. Jackactionqu**ro looks smart by comparison, and that is indeed an insult, in case you can’t figure that out.

    I am being specific.

    Just because you are bitter about how things happened in your life does not mean your opinion matters. This was someones life. Perhaps it was not his best decision but he does not deserve a stupid comment on a news website.Maybe you should get off your @s$ and get a life. You are lucky to still have yours. Ryan… I didn’t know you well but you were a nice guy. This drinks to you bud

    They have the details of the ages, names, vehicles involved and home towns but they can’t get the facts on if he was hit by a truck or he hit a truck.
