I heard about that one.  Those two guys were friends and co-workers ... they had been riding together for years.

I can't imagine how he could yell loudly enough for riders up above to hear him, with his injuries.  It's a miracle that man is alive... and now he has to live the rest of his life thinking he is responsible for his friend's death.  It breaks my heart and teaches me a lesson.   :-\

There is a long thread on this on ADV with the discussion being about carrying PLBs for incidents like this.  http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/fatal-accident-on-the-dragon-only-discovered-24-hours-later-plb-could-have-helped.1181058/page-12#post-30688408

As usual for ADV there is a lot of arguement and name calling in this thread but it does raise some valid points.
