RIP Jamaa Zachry
There was a sgt in my shop, Jamaa, who would bug me day after day about what kind of bike he should get. He wanted something fast but he was new to riding so he got a 636, which he LOVED. He was so excited that he went during our lunch break and paid cash and brought it back to work. Jamaa started riding up in the mountains with us and he was getting more and more comfortable. So one day we decided to go down a little further than we usually go, and of course we had the few in the group that would haul ass and leave the rest of us behind. Jamaa tried to keep up and went around a corner and didn't lean far enough and stood his bike up and went straight into a guardrail.(he was wearing all of his gear) We kept him alive for 3 hrs doing CPR on and off. We were in the mountains so they couldn't get a helicopter in and it was windy. That was one of the hardest days of my life and I wish he was still here. I am still riding because I knew he wouldn't want me to stop. He is in better place now, God wanted him more than we did down here.
Jamaa Zachry was one of my sgts and a really good friend of mine and my fiance's. He was such an amazing person, friend, and father. He left this earth May 27, 2012. That day will forever be in our hearts.
And New riders please please PLEASE take it slow if you aren't comfortable. And lean hard and trust your bike. KNOW your boundaries!!!
