Such a waste of a life. Just happened in my family -- wife's cousin killed himself on his motorcycle the last week of March in Danbury, CT. People at the funeral said the same thing -- why risk your life on something as dangerous as a motorcycle. Really, really tragic and sad!!

RIP Luc Bourdon and my prayers go out to the family.

Because it's a thrill and they're usually the thrill seeking type.

Motorcycles aren't the instant death machines people make them out to be...a huge part of it is the attitude of the person riding it.

Danny Heatley managed to wreck and kill someone and he wasn't on a motorcycle.

You should have to have a license before you ever even get onto one of those things. You need alot of hours flying a plane before you can do it alone, but you're really in alot more danger personally, riding a motorcycle. There's a girl where I work who's never ridden a motorcycle before, and some ding dong sells her a freaking Hyabusa (sp) It's like a freaking rocket with tires. It should definitely NOT be your first dabble into motorcycles. Anyway, People are more than happy to sell them to anybody, and when you're going over 100mph, any mistake is a big mistake. They should make sure you're qualified to operate it. I read Bourdon died on my Yahoo page and my heart just dropped. So much to live for. What a ****** day. My condolences to the Bourdon family and the Canuck organization.

what a shame.

Not much information on the crash, just:

"Police in New Brunswick said Bourdon was driving his motorcycle that collided with a transport truck on a road between Lemeque and Shippagan, his hometown."

=\ r.i.p

Sad and shocking to say the least. From a human perspective, someone just lost their son, or brother or friend. That is something that never fully heals.

From a sports standpoint, that's devastating for a team as well. Especially when it's a top young player.

From a riding standpoint, and I ride, it always makes you gulp.

There are many ways to look at riding bikes. On the one hand people need training and experience, on the other hand so many accidents are caused by careless car drivers, not necessarily motorcycle riders.

I'm pretty cautious on a bike, but even I've had some close calls. It's all part of the challange of life. You could play everything safe and be killed by someone else. You could be in great shape and die of a heart attack.

Me, personally, I just try and trust in a higher purpose and understand that there are many things in life I don't understand and won't until after I die.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those people to whom he was a part of their life.

Horrible news. My aunt's godson was killed in a similar accident a couple of months ago, strikes me as a senseless way to go but nonetheless tragic especially when he's so young... I can't understand why someone so close to fulfilling a dream would even risk it all like that, but I am just not of that mindset. One of the constant things about death though is that I just don't understand it. I read a terrible story on the Canucks board that he was showing off the new bike to his girlfriend and she witnessed the accident. I can only hope that isn't true, I can't imagine the despair.

R.I.P. Luc

There was some more information in the TSN article, I think, that said it was windy that day and the accident happened on a turn in the road. The police said it initially looked like it was Bourdon who crossed the center line and not the truck.

Could be a bad luck accident in that he got pushed by the wind at the wrong time, and was an inexperienced rider who didn't know how to deal with it or whether he should even be riding in it.

That's the shame of it though... you can be the greatest motorcycle driver in the world... and one stupid move by someone else, and...

Horrible news... I really wish his family the best.

An awful thing to hear. I think the Flyers lost someone from that same town years ago in similar tragic circumstances. I ride a motorcycle, and know that it truly is a dangerous passion. Luc was an incredibly nice and talented guy. My condolences to his family and I know he will never be forgotten.
