Default Bruce Rossmeyer killed in accident w RV

Just got the news. Rossmeyer was the last rider in a group passing the RV when the RV strayed accross the line and either hit Bruce or forced him off the road. Sad day for riders everywhere. RIP Bruce. We'll miss you.

Wow, this is a shock. Honestly, I always thought drinking and/or obesity would be his end. As Supra said, it is cool that he went out riding. Cool or ironic I suppose, depending on your point of view.

He was a cool dude, right after I started working for him, he had his Lear jet re-done to be a "Screamin Eagle" jet. He had flames on the outside, and HD logos on the seats and much of the interior. Right after it was done, he had us ride almost every new bike in the 3 Broward dealerships out to the airport. We parked them in a crescent around the jet and they took photos. I think he had his Bentley in the shot too; he really loved that car and bragged about taking it over 200 mph.

There are a lot of people whose livelyhood depends on his dealerships. I hope they have an orderly transition and that they keep the "dream" alive.

Vaya Con Dios, Mr. Rossmeyer.

This may sound trite, but at least he went out on the back of a Harley.

Gods speed Mr. Rossmeyer.

We never know when our number is going to be punched. I only saw Bruce in his ads, and I wish him and his family the best. Seemed like a decent dude.

Cool

Rest in Peace, best wishes to all his family and employees.

We just had the owner of a major dealership pass in an airplane accident aswell, he owned multiple fast food restraunts, and the fun bike center here in Florida.
