I lost my best friend Roy on August 13, 2008, he wrecked his CBR 929 on on a blind curve. Roy was a great friend and the one who got me interested in motorcycles. I honor him when I ride by having his initials on my handle bars so I can look down and remember him. Roy you are always with me and I never ride alone. Im not to sure when I took this picture, Roy was a manager at a car audio and window tint shop...He was tinting an Austin Police officers car one day and I couldn't resist snapping a picture of him in it. RIP Roy, you will never be forgotten. Here is a link to the article about his passing. I know he would want a picture of his bike up here too so its the one on the right. http://www.statesman.com/blogs/conte..._motorcyc.html

A 23-year-old man found dead in the 8900 block of Wildridge Drive just before 1 a.m. today has been identified by police as Roy Waters. His death is being investigated as the 35th traffic fatality in Austin this year.
Investigators say Waters was driving a 2001 Honda motorcycle southbound on Wildridge Drive when he struck a curb. The Honda then struck a tree and Waters was ejected from the motorcycle, according to officials. When Waters was ejected, he struck a telephone pole, police said.
Waters was not wearing a helmet, police said, and he did not have a license to operate the vehicle. A passerby saw the man along the side of the road and called 911, police said.
He was taken to University Medical Center at Brackenridge where he was pronounced dead at 2:45 a.m. Vehicular Homicide detectives ask anyone with information about the incident to call 974-6981.
