    Lost a Rider

    The Laurel Highlands group turned back after losing Ray Breamer Yesterday morning on the way to the rally. Ray was a member of the Laurel Highland riders group. One mile from his house a Jeep turned in front of him and he passed away. Ray leaves behind three children and two grand children and a lot of friends. Be safe out there friends and pray for his family.

    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    Having lost one of my oldest (32 years) friends just last June 23 (MC), I can relate to your sorrow.
    My prayers and others to be added to the list.

    Your good people and the family knows it.

    He was doing what he looked forward to... before he was taken from here.
    GOD Speed... Ray will be with you when ya'll ride...Remember the good times and not how he was taken...

    In addition to the sadness of the riders death is the way the article was phrased. It sounds as though they are Subtlely trying to slant the story to make it seem as though the cyclist was at fault.

    for example:

    "when his motorcycle hit a Jeep Wrangler"

    "The motorcycle hit the side of NedimyerÔÇÖs vehicle"


    I have seen this type of suggestive wording before and I don't like it.

    It is so sad for all the families. The jeep driver will carry the burden the rest of his
    life. My father had a man on a Dyna wideglide go wide on a turn and throw his
    wife off under my fathers pickup. My father had never had a wreck in his driving
    lifetime. He never rode his Electriglide again. I feel for all involved.
