    I never actually met Troy, but he was my Mother's Ex-Husband. His Son is my brother, Ryan. This wasn't his first time riding, it was not a mid-life crisis. He had experience on a motor-cycle. STEVE: He was a cars salesman. Rest In Peace.

    TOO many new older riders who jump on a bike for the first time in their mid life crisis and have no training or experience! Helmets, no helmets, it's their choice if they want to die but as far as leaving behind family, who are these riders thinking about??? Check out EKU's course, get a bike you can actually handle, wear gear to protect yourself and slow down. Yes, there will be accidents still, but if you want to think about the family you'll leave behind to miss you very much, think about it when you start speeding on that bike with no helmet.

    I am trying to determine if this Troy is the same person that I worked with in Lexington during the mid 90's.Does anyone know his occupation?

    Yes it does matter how one dies. If a helmet could have prevented injuries to a person's head, that person might still be alive. Yes, the word is "might" still be alive but at least there is a chance. If I rode a motorcylce without a helmet, crashed it and died from head injuries, you better believe not only strangers, but my family would be asking why a helmet wasn't used. Any safety precaution that can be used NEEDS to be used.

    Don't leave rude comments like "not wearing a helment, that explains it all" - think about the man's family before you do something like that. I'm here for you Ryan if you need anything as well as your little brother. Mr. Hogue will be greatly missed by many.

    Troy was a good friend of mine. Regardless of exact reason he died doesn't really matter does it? Should, Could, Would is after the fact. I think we should respect Troy and his family. He was a great guy and friend.

    So many new older riders,please take an msf course,and ride ATGATT,all the gear all the time,IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU,think of the ones you leave to take care of you or leave behind. Respect your ride.some think its cool with no gear,some think its not.I have ridden with no gear in my day and am lots more comfortable wearing the gear,full face helmet and all,half helmets only give you about one third the protection,most head injuries are to the face area.No gear is not cool its stupid,so who you trying to be cool for?If you aren't serious about ridding give it up.

    This was a good man and know he his gone leaving behind a family that will miss him very much and the only thing that you can say about it is the fact that he wasn't wearing a helmet.

    I can't believe that the state of KY requires people in cars wear seatbelts(which is a good thing), but allow people who are riding a motorcycle are not required to wear a helmet. I agree with Smith in Lexinton. Bring back the helment law!!!!
