    I just wanted to share this to all, and if you like racing or motorcycles read on......

    We all have thing that we enjoy doing, strive to exceed in, and sometimes they just may be dangerous. We became involved with Land Speed Racing motorcycles in 2000, and our son grew up riding every bike he could and has set some impressive records. we have also met and made friends with some great people over the years....one of those was one "Wild Bill" Warner....
    Bill was as down to earth a person as they get, and when he became the ONLY person in history to exceed 300 MPH on a sit on motorcycle....he told the crowd there that they were the ones that made it happen....He was the one that gave our son his record hat for breaking 250 MPH on a sit on motorcycle...a list of about 30 in the world....
    Well today Bill lost his life in a crash at Loring AFB, managed 296 in a standing mile before something happened. Chasing his Dream of breaking 300 MPH on a sit on motorcycle from a standing start in 1 mile.....
    God speed my friend

    So sorry for your loss. I did see an article on this on the internet the other day. My dad died at work, he loved his job, and my mom to solace in the fact that he died doing what he loved to do, and where he was happy. May your friend rest in peace.
