    I was out with some friends last night riding and a 04 1000 was up front and was accelerating and when switching gears got a nasty tank slapper and lost it and went off the road about 70mph and hit an mount sending him 30 feet into the air. He has a family of 4 that has not only lost their father...I lost one of my best friends of 15 years. Please wear Helmets folks....this could have saved his life.

    Rest in Peace Dyke Pruitt

    You friend forever,

    Mike
