Thanks everyone, we start the funeral process today.  I drove the bike 45 miles yesterday and it's ok but I'm not too sure how the wife feels about it.  Spoke with a dealer and they said I could consign the bike at the dealership and get about 6K so I have to think about that as well.  Time will tell.

Jerry, my thoughts are with you and your family.

I hear in the manner by which you told this story..just know, this is no way shape or form, was your fault.

No words will can really be said, I never lost a family member, but a couple buddies have gone into light as a result of bikes. One was very fast, the other took 30 yrs.
Please ride again, get his initials painted on your bike, and he comes with you on every ride. My buddies initials are on my beloved Connie, they ride with me always.
Stay positive, it sounds like he was doing exactly what he wanted to, being with you and riding.
Ride safe all,
Greg

Sometimes it takes a while to feel the NEED to ride again. It took me 8 years. Sorry for the loss of a buddy. :-\

WOW Jerry, Don 't know what to say. He was doing exactly what he needed to do considering what has happened with him. He will be looking down over you on every ride. Take something from your dad-in-law and put it on your bike. My best thoughts and feeling towards you and your dad-in-law!!!!!
Never ride faster then your guardian angel.........

It is actually worse than that, Dad got t-boned in the middle of the first cross traffic lane, the poor girl hardly had any time to brake before she hit him so she saw the whole thing happen before her eyes.

She came Friday night to the visitation.  She is understandably shook up, she's only 17 years old.  We did our best to assure her that we are not in any way angry with her and we are praying for her emotional healing.   Thank goodness she was not badly injured in the wreck.  She has a good family and our support.  The healing will take time for everyone.  She is the type of kid that will find a way to get rumble strips installed at rural intersections.
