    RIP

    that's a shock. The guy had built a successful business and had many years of enjoying the result ahead.

    Wonder what it's going to do to Daytona Bike Week and Biketoberfest. B.R. was intimately involved.
    This Sun area HOG chapters are suppose to meet at B.R.'s Boston Harley for a memorial ride for fallen members to salem, wonder how this news will effect that.

    RIP. Plowing into a left-turning vehicle is actually pretty easy. I nearly hit someone the exact same way. Thank God they checked their rear-view as I was passing and waited to make the turn. Talk about pucker factor.

    Very sad.

    In Mexico, people turn on their left turn signal to tell you it's ok to pass.

    Bruce owned several H-D dealerships, as well as several auto dealerships.

    His death will have an impact on a lot of people.

    This accident certainly seems bizarre -- broad daylight, "straight, dry and flat" road. He must have felt pressured to catch up with the first four bikes. The truck couldn't see him back there if Bruce was following right behind the trailer: "if you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you!"

    ...and the left turn signal was on. Ugh.

    Moral of the story: ride your own ride! Don't try to keep up with the guy in front of you if you aren't comfortable.

    Last weekend I was riding with a few people and the light changed after the first couple people went thru.
    I stopped and they had to pull over and wait for me and the guy behind me.
    A while later it happened again and I stopped the guy behind me went thru.
    I don't go thru red lights on my motorcycle no matter what. I've been mangled enough times.

    They say Bruce Rossmeyer was killed on US28 between Lander, Wyoming and Farson, Wyoming -- near where it crosses US287.

    A few weeks ago I posted a picture I took during a ride through that same stretch of highway a few years ago. Creepy.
