    R.I.P Marco Simoncelli. A fantastic moto GP rider and next to Rossi, one of my favorites.

    SEPANG, Malaysia -Italian rider Marco Simoncelli has died after wrecking in the Malaysian MotoGP motorcycle race. He was 24.

    Sepang circuit press officer Norlina Ayob confirmed Simoncelli's death.

    Simoncelli lost control of his Honda in the 11th turn on the first lap Sunday, but his bike regained partial grip and pulled him back across the track, straight into the path of Italy's Valentino Rossi and American Colin Edwards.

    Simoncelli's helmet was ripped off and he was motionless on the track.

    Edwards also fell, but escaped serious injury, while Rossi was able to return to the pit area. The race was canceled.

    Sounds like a high side. Haven't seen any vids yet. Sucks. Sure am glad I got out of road racing besides the cost.

    Wasn't a high side, watched it live last nite. Edwards hit him when he tucked the front. He and Rossi are my faves, very sad day.

    Rest in peace Champion, long live the 'fro.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
