    Sad to hear, hoping for a speedy recovery. I don’t know if Mr. Pike was wearing proper gear or not. I ride and I wear all my gear. If you ride, PLEASE wear your gear. Now matter how loud your pipes are, they still just make noise. HELMETS save lives.

    I’m praying to God that Kenny will come through this.
