Please keep the family of George Pruitt in your thoughts and prayers. Mr. Pruitt was a local and long time rider in my hometown and was tragically killed as the result of a cager not paying attention. He was waiting to turn into his road, where only lived a couple hundred yards up from the road entrance, on his Ultra Classic--with signal on, when a guy in a full size Dodge pick-up struck him from behind @ an estimated 60 mph. He said he never seen him sitting in the road, which was a straight away, until he struck the bike. Very tragic for his family for as I said he was only a couple of hundred yards from his home where most of his family was outside in the yard. Please keep them in your prayers
I helped work this wreck which was our 2nd motorcycle involved wreck in 2 weeks but this one was fatal. Guys if you read this please check your mirrors as you come to a road to turn into. I know, we all do this, but over time we get very comfortable in our own towns and areas as we travel these roads daily and may sometimes forget to check behind us for someone traveling to close or texting or looking off at someone mowing or whatever! I just ask that we all re-teach ourselves the basics and not get to comfortable, take different routes home and to work to keep from getting so comfortable. I know there are several riders including me and wife and several from our area headed to Panama in about a month so be careful and keep your eyes open and looking for THEM because they are not looking for us!
