    For those of you that follow MotoGP racing, Marco Simoncelli lost his life in a wreck during lap 2 of the Malaysian GP. He was a gifted, up and coming star in the MotoGP ranks. At 24 years of age, he died much too soon.

    This makes 2 deaths in as many weeks in the upper echelon of motorsports. People sometimes loose their lives for our entertainment.

    RIP Marco:(

    short, they don't do it to entertain us. If you have the madness you will do it whether anyone is watching or not.

    I don't really have to explain, those who know will understand.

    I know completely HM. I just worded my post to be user friendly for those that don't.

    This is a link to the crash video. Please watch at your own risk, it isn't very pretty.

    Not good to fall off your motorbike.

    Even worse to have your helmet come off...
