Two nights ago, I was riding with a group of friends, all learner riders with me being the most experienced with only 1 year on a bike, when one lost control and unfortunately lost his life in the resulting accident, I witnessed this accident and immediately attempted to help with my first aid training when I realised he had already passed on. Group drives and rides are a big part of the culture that we and our other friends are involved in within our community, and his parents have organised a memorial cruise in his honor. My bike was released from police custody today. I have been debating whether or not to ride my bike for the memorial cruise. On one hand it is a show of solidarity for the riders among us and a show of the passion that my friend had, but it also seems like it might be painful for his parents and others among us to see as they all know I was riding with him at the time, and disrespectful considering the cause of his death. As experienced riders, I would like to know your opinions on whether I should drive or ride in the cruise, and any tips on getting back on a bike after witnessing such a horrific event would be greatly appreciated. EDIT: Sorry about no intro thread, didn't feel right to post a warm hearted intro thread before this.
