It is very sad to hear that one of our regular forum brother's has passed away this Monday.

Our deepest Condolences to your family and friends.

RacerRaul



Raul's brother in law past on the following details.

Biga, Raul passed away on Monday, Sept 14. He was in a motorcycle accident up here in Tennessee. He was out riding with some other guys showing them some of the turns up here and had an unfortunate mishap. He was rounding a corner at a pretty good velocity and some heard him down shift a couple of times and lost control of the rear tire. We believe someone may have pulled out in front of him. He hit into a tree and fell into a river.

This is his brother-in-law. They had the service yesterday, here in Cleveland, Tennessee.

Here is a link to the page the funeral home setup:

In Memory of Raul Antonio Torres

Very sad. The thoughts of my family go out to his family. I've been getting to know him better through another (linux) forum. He was a very nice guy and I very much enjoyed our WSBK/MotoGP/Linux converstations. He'll be missed.

RIP Raul.

Oh my God!
I just found out about RR - that's a terrible tragedy and I'm gonna miss him around here. He and I had a lot of fun with our different perspectives on racers and racing but it was - usually-always light hearted and good natured.

My deepest condolences to his family.
He will be missed.
