Understandably, there is a great deal of talk today dissecting Luc Bourdon’s decision to ride a motorcycle and his inexperience. Certainly, motorcycles and youth are a dangerous combination, but is that really the most important lesson to be learned from this tragedy?
Like them or not, motorbikes are legal and plenty of people ride them safely for years. Inexperience is likely to have played a part in young Bourdon’s death, but accidents can happen to anybody and under many circumstances.
As I believe TSN’s Bob McKenzie commented yesterday at some point, when your number is up, it’s up. No matter how carefully Bourdon might have chosen to live, life itself just isn’t terribly fair about these things.
