    Another person/child dead from a “riding” accident.

    You know its funner then heck “riding”. And usually a positive thing for kids and helps to keep them out of trouble with the wrong people and drugs. Not to say there isnt drugs and alchohol around “riders” thats for sure.
    I am a 50 yr old woman and grew up riding motorcycles ATV’s, dunebuggyes, riding in off road race trucks, wave runners, you name it and I have prolly riden in it or driven it or both.
    It was a family thing in my life and it took up alot free time and energy and we went out with family friends with all their toys and everyone rode everything.
    I have known so many in my lifetime to die or get a horrible life altering injury.

    If the people and kids are drug and alcohol free, if they have all the safety equipment, and a parent is hopefully around, or a well meaning friend who does not let them ride beyond their abilities,(this is what I see cause accidents more then anything else is the later) this is a fun and safe sport usually.

    There can still be that unbeknownst hauling a.. dunebuggy coming up over the opposite side of the hill at the dunes you are and unfortunately end your life in a snap, gear or no gear. Head ons at the dunes are way.

    I hope this child had on protective gear, and was riding at his ability, within the speed he could handle this ATV, and no drugs or alcohol were involved. RIP young Marcos.

    PS: I think all accidents such as this should be investigated and if there is any of the above issues involved that contributed to his death then an adult should be held responsible.
    Maybe then parents will keep a closer eye on their child that is out “riding” and less of these accidents will occur or cause injury.

    He was a great young man. His life was cut short but he lived a great life. He knew how to have fun with his friends and family. I was blessed to have had the chance to get to know him. RIP Marco Saucedo

    Marcos,
    Wow.. It’s been two years and I still can’t believe your gone. I think about you day and night of each day. You were my bestfriend, my boyfriend, my love. You helped me with so much. I wish I coul hear your voice one more time. I watched our movie that we saw together on our second date. A throwback for me. I sleep in your jersey still. I miss you so much. We had so many good times and we just were left unfinished. :( I want you back… Sometimes I wonder if your smiling down on me. I bet you are. I love you beyond words. I’ll visit you at the cemetery soon. I miss you soo much and love you. What we had will never be over nor forgotten. I love you baby boy. Rock the heavens baby.
    Love your boo
