I haven't been on here much and just saw this post. Thought to myself, "Ok, someone is joking around." How I wish that was true. My condolences to her friends and family....another great person lost due to someone not paying attention.

Just shocking news....and a very sobering reminder for all of us lucky enough to still be on 2-wheels down here on earth, keep yours wits about you when your out riding!

It's a very sad day for sure. I did some riding today but will burnup some miles tomorrow thinking of Beebe.

Didn't know Beebe, but have enjoyed many of her posts. I would be delighted to help her partner Liz if arrangements can be made. Will follow these posts.

Postings like this never happen on my fishing forums. Unfortunately, one sad feature that makes this forum unique.

I bet there is a lot of "fish" stories on the fishing forum

Like everyone here, I am stunned! I am also very angry!

From the news report: "the sun was directly in Forrester’s eyes, and she did not see the motorcycle".

Same old bullshit! The motorcycle was there! So your vision is obscured and you pull out anyway!!!!

I am sick of these careless assholes mowing us down and the law let's them skate!

Perhaps we can keep this thread about the positive memories we all had of Beebe.
