Louder pipes would have saved him.

Looks like maybe Jesus didn't want him to ride that motorcycle.

He died because subby used to many T's in Cincinnati

A brief and prophetic audio clip from Pastore's final show

Uh, no. There is nothing "prophetic" about a motorcycle rider stating that they could die in a motorcycle accident.

I've never heard an anecdote involving motorcycles that didn't involve either grievous injury or death.

Nevertheless, RIP Mr. 4.29 lifetime ERA man.

I hope his organs were donated to a sick person who appreciates their life.

That's motorcycles for you.

You can do everything right... and you still lose.

If only the other driver would have had a motorcycle.. this senseless death could have been stopped!!

I'm doing this right... right?

Nope. They exhumed Larry Hagman, put an extra liver in him, and reinterred him.

So, the Twins will be calling him up to the majors soon then?

Wonder what happened. Most bike crashes are quite survivable.
 
2012-12-18 02:53:56 PM  
So he committed suicide very slowly?

Yes, yes it is.

filter: Wonder what happened. Most bike crashes are quite survivable.


Wiki says: a 56-year-old woman driving a grey Hyundai Sonata in the second lane eastbound, inexplicably collided with the motorcycle that Pastore was riding in the carpool lane, throwing him off the motorcycle. He suffered serious head injuries...

Someone allowed a woman on the freeway apparently.

Not funny, man.

If the guy was such a wonderful husband and father, why did he regularly engage in one of the riskiest optional activities available to him. Wouldn't that make him a gambler and a home wrecker, to the point where he admitted it and said he could care less what his behavior did to his family?
 
2012-12-18 03:05:40 PM  
He didn't predict his own death. Any one who has ever rode a motorcycle knows that your risks of being killed are increased. And if they don't know that then they probably shouldn't be riding a motorcycle in the first place.
 
2012-12-18 03:06:48 PM  
Donorcycles. Would love to ride one, but it is just not the responsible thing to do. I believe wearing a helmet is still optional in Ohio.
 
2012-12-18 03:08:12 PM  
Don't worry subby. The one and only green I have is because I spelled Cincinnati wrong.

Frank Pastore is always the correct answer. Right Mr. Burbank?
 
2012-12-18 03:10:47 PM  
I'm a few weeks away from getting my motorcycle license (Europe) and I hear nothing but horror stories every single time I mention it. It's one of the most common means of transport here, so I'm hoping people are more aware than they are in the good ole USA. They city is chock full of scooters.

Unfortunately motorcyclists organs are not usually good for transplant because the body has been dead too long. They call them donor cycles but they really don't add much to the transplant pool.

I guess he's eating his pie in the sky now that he died.

"Motorcycles.....it's not *if* you're going to wreck...it's always "when"...eventually you *will* wreck."


That's pretty much what my MSF teacher said to the class. I failed the final riding test and decided riding isn't for me, me and other people driving are probably better off.

I'm a cycling (bicycle) commuter. The same rules apply to me. Eventually I will be creamed in an accident. A few years ago i broke my elbow and pelvis when an old man veered into the bike lane. It WILL happen again.

The chance for a facial degloving is not worth the money saved in fuel or the extra protein eaten from the bugs.

Yeah. If someone says, outright, that them doing something is going to kill them, and then they continue to do that thing until they die then isn't that technically suicide? I mean, even normal motorcyclists don't do that. They know the risks and think, "This is very dangerous, but I enjoy it very much. Therefore I will take the utmost precautions in order to maximize both my safety and the safety of others." The responsible ones think that anyway. But this guy's just like, "I'm going to this and I'm gonna die." I mean, that's just a straight-up death wish. If every time you get on a bike and think, "I don't care if I die," that's dangerous as hell for everyone else on the road who doesn't want to die. It means that safety is completely irrelevant to you. "I'll run this red light, because I don't care if I get hit and my body flies through someone's windshield and my bike crushes a pedestrian. Because I'll go to heaven." farking psychos man. Incapable of understanding that their actions impact others.

A-freaking-men. CSB time!

When I was in high school we had a band teacher who was the kind of guy that wanted to be liked (and with his charisma, most people did like him). He was a youngish guy with a wife and a baby, but he also rode a motorcycle. I always assumed he rode it because it made him look cool, and people always did talk about it being cool. Well, what do you know, but my senior year he got into an accident that wasn't his fault and died.

Everyone was heartbroken and said what a wonderful man and father and all he was. It wasn't until I became a father myself that I realized what a horrible father he actually was, because he knew the risks of riding a motorcycle, but decided that it (which contributed to his image) was much more important than making sure he was there for his son.

As it is, his son never knew him because he died. He was never there for his son because he CHOSE to ride a motorcycle and he paid the ultimate price even though the accident wasn't his fault.

People will still talk about him 20 years later and only have great things to say to him (hell, there is even a facebook group dedicated to the "disciples of" him), but their lionizing of him glosses over much of the negatives in his life, especially the selfishness of his death that he chose.

Basically, if you don't have anyone that depends on you, motorcycles are awesome (and indeed, motorcycles are awesome). But if you have kids, you are being a moron if you ride one.

Yep. My wife took a motorcycle class from the local community college a few years ago in order to get her motorcycle endorsement. She said one of the things they kept repeating over and over again was "tonnage always wins". It doesn't matter how good of a rider you are, your body won't win against a car.

Not so fast.
Ben Cherington's scouts have eyed him as a hot prospect.
He's proposed a trade.
After Pastore, passes the physical (the Sox Dox have already waved him through), Ben will sign him to a $25M extension.

...and sometimes they come looking for you. I was crossing a street (in a marked bicycle crosswalk) with good visibility, warning signs, etc. Both directions of traffic were stopped and waiting for me to cross. I clipped in, and moved forward, when a guy decided to pass three stopped cars on the right (through the empty metered parking spaces) to get around the stopped traffic (in a two lane street).

Guy claimed I ran into the intersection....but the stopped witnesses and my Garmin 305 GPS said otherwise. (It showed me slowing, coasting, and then stopped for a full minute before moving forward at 5MPH. Then it showed me moving LEFT at 20MPH.
