Oh shit. This is why traffic was so bad. I was caging but ended up getting off at sand canyon and taking local roads. Almost rode today, too. Very sad, RIP.

We don't need to post pictures of dead people on the forum, riders or not.

This is not LiveLeak.

Agree.  That young man has family and won't want to see his picture laying on the asphalt like that.

Ride on,

I disagree, but this is only my viewpoint. Pictures mean different things to different people, and may even convince some viewers to change for the good.

I agreed that it may offend some people but personally to me seeing some thing like this reminds me how vulnerable we are, and makes me slow down and be more alert, reminds me im only human and puts my mortality in prospective.

I think what some of us are getting at is, not showing someone's dead body on the internet is a sign of respect for that person's loved ones.  Its not OUR feelings that are offended.  It's theirs.

its good that certain people are trying to be wary of what other people feel, but unless there is an official/legal notice from next of kin to remove, then its all just assumption. lets think about someone's life that was saved due to seeing that picture. i remember participating in safety training classes with little residual effect on the majority of the participants during the boring text and fake pics/videos, until they see actual graphic results of what would have happen if safety was lowered in priority. again, this is just my opinion.

Does anyone know how he collided with the truck?  The article wasn't very clear.  Thanks.

Most do not need pics to remind us that we are involved in dangerous activity.  Like others have posted, go to LiveLeak if you need to be humbled.  And while there is almost a 0% chance the rider's family will be lurking here, the OP did right by removing the pic.  Imagine if you saw one of your family member's dying moment(s) posted on FaceBook without anybody's consent.  RIP and condolences to the young man's family and friends. 

Does anyone know how he collided with the truck?  The article wasn't very clear.  Thanks.

This is typical OC Register reporting and likely we'll never get an answer, and it opens so much more to speculation.  Maybe the OP can weigh in...

I've been looking for info.

Wow.  Four riders are currently on the OC coroner's notification page.  Two died on Ortega.  Three got into it with trucks and all were in their twenties.  A sad pattern...

Ride on,

Last I checked you didn't need a court order to have empathy. World wide web = class room with consent to publish a the photo ? Common sense give it a try.

Your exactly right bikerydr.

Just more censorship from people who "THINK THEY KNOW WHATS BEST" fore everyone else. Beliefs like this are what is ruining our society. Do everyone a favor, if you don't like something, fine, don't look at it or do it or whatever. Don't ASSUME to know what is best for everybody or what everybody wants.
