RIP Robert Price Jr

I know I havent been on here in a while, and Im sorry to come back with a sad post. I lost another one...

There is a few odds and ends that are making this a little harder on my wife and I but the bottom line is a good friend of ours went down on Sat and didnt make it. He died on Sunday due to injuries sustained in the crash.

Robert was 25, recently married and the father of a 3yr old son, and a 1 year old son. Robert just bought his first house, finally had a job he liked and was a great husband, father and friend. He also truly loved every min he spent on his 07 GSXR 600. Robert and I were going to the IMS this weekend, and then we were going to start putting together his track bike he just bought. He was going to his the track this year with TPM, Sixxxxer and me.

Rest in peace Robert, find Kevin and ride with him till I get there. Ill see you soon brotha, but not too soon.

My condolences and prayers go out to the family and loved ones of our fallen rider Robert. It really sucks to jump on the active topics and see the first post being of a fallen rider.

I ask everyone on this site, as much as we may love ripping the canyons, to consider instead, pushing your limits at your local track.

RIP Robert Price Jr

In Roberts case there was a cager involved. Nissan Pathfinder, mother and child on board uninjured. Investigation is on going.

Ride safe, please. This is the second close friend I lost in 5 years. I cant take any more.

Sorry to hear Tom.

I didn't know the weather was decent enough to be out riding in NJ this time of year.

I had been wondering where you had been. My heart and prayers out to the family. Seeing stuff like this makes me really consider selling the bike and counting my blessings for the time i did have to ride. RIP Robert.

RIP Robert. Good luck to your and his family. He went out doing what we all love, better than going quietly in bed.

There is such a balance between these 2 quotes. I'm sure we all have a bit of the "it won't happen to me" thought.
Sorry to hear about your friend.

I wasnt as close as Tom was with robert, But still knew him and had ridden with him on occasion. And he was a great guy. He was SUPER Excited about the Track season coming up and I as well as Tom was looking forward to having another buddy out there with us and someone else to talk to at the track!

Tom isnt on Facebook, But I am and there have been alot fo posts about him on his FB...I looked through his pictures the night Tom told me and fucking lost it when I saw this one...



This is the second friend that I rode with...Really thinking about taking the plate off the ZX6 and just turning into a track whore.

Thank you to everyone who posted...And I to am sorry I havent been as active lately.
