Prayers go out....

Ok so I hear this guy flying down the street outside my house a few times tonight. This last time I hear him make it about 2 houses down the a big boom! I run outside and people are already calling the cops. Kids was on an R6. Only reason I know is bc the side fairing landed in my yard. The cops came and put a white sheet over him and what is left of the bike. The front tire is about a block away. Seems he was doing a wheelie and lost it and rode up in some guys yard and hit a telephone pole HARD. Dot know him personally but hate to see a rider down. I will be saying a prayer for him and his family during these hard times. Just thought I would share my night with fellow riders and remind everyone any time could be our time to go...please ride safe.
