Jeremy was a VERY young man and a good friend of mine and all who knew him.

He will be missed.

Holy cow!! I only met him once, when he was at Karla's place, picking up the Limey Accent bike that Bob Jones built. He had said that he had just finished paying off his house and finally had "play money" to spend. He was WAY too young to be taken... My condolences to his family, including his XS one...

I never had the chance to meet him face to face, but I liked his convictions for HIS favorite things. As others have said, he was WAY to young!
My condolences to his family.

My most sincere condolences go out to Happy and the gang as well as the rest of Jeremy's friends.

No matter how things ended up between us, I have many fond memories of Pup.

I try to explain to non riding friends the spidy-sense that one develops for survival on 2 wheels. Found it transfers with me when cage driving. It can only be gained when everything that can ruin or end your life becomes instinctively aware to you as you roll. And the sobering knowledge that sometimes if a certain possibility of occurrences happens there is nothing you can do. As I suspect may have happened here.Funny how the thoughts of someone you didn't know will live with you long after they have passed.I will rename my start button The Jeremy Reed Button and welcome him to my future rides. May we ride together a long time.

"I am sorry" seems so trite when things like this happen, but I truley am and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. While it is often members on this site never meet face to face, there seems to be a family bond that exceeds the boundaries of the internet and everyone becomes part of a family very quickly and the loss of one of the those members ripples thru the community with shock and sadness.
It is things like this, and my own personal experiences this weekend, that makes the need for all of us not to become complacient when we saddle up.
With the freedom and pleasure we all get from swinging a leg over our iron mounts, we cannot forget the inherent risks associated and ride accordingly.
I, for one, can assure you, I will truly more vigiliant on my seemingly mundane ride to work.

Vio Condios Jeremy. It was way too soon for you.
