Default Re: Big Ben and his motorcycle??

My closest friend growing up pulled two tours in Nam as a helicopter gunship pilot and came home without a scratch. Six months later, in the smoky mountains, he was hit while riding his bike. The driver of whatever hit him dragged him, and his bike, off the road and into the woods. Hit and run. Someone found him a few days later. He was in a coma, and remained that way until he died a couple of months after that.

Just a few weeks before Tom was hit, he had been riding up in the same mountains with a friend. The friend disappeared around a corner in front of him. When Tom made the corner there was his friend, married to a cement embankment. Dead. He to had been a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.
