Rider dies in dealership parking lot - April 10, 2008, 10:33 PM

Beacon man killed in motorcycle crash

Police say he wasn't wearing a helmet

NEW WINDSOR — A Beacon man died earlier this evening in a motorcycle accident in the parking lot of the business where he had just purchased the motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet.

New Windsor Police were dispatched to the parking lot of Jim Moroney’s Cycle Shop at 833 Union Ave. at about 6:08 p.m.

Dennis Walden, 56, of Beacon, was driving a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle in the parking lot of the shop. He had just purchased the bike, and was riding across the parking lot when he lost control and struck a parked vehicle. Police said he wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Walden was treated at the scene by New Windsor Volunteer Ambulance and Regional Ambulance

Just another case of how inexperience can kill.


When I do deliveries to customers and am going over their bikes its very easy to spot the people who have never ever ridden a motorcycle before.
I'm not exactly sure about the sales dept policy on selling bikes to people w/o M-class licenses.
There are times when I can't stress enough to these people "TAKE THE MSF COURSE" start slow "THIS (insert brand new sportbike) CAN KILL YOU"
Kinda scary actually, but everyones gotta start somewhere.


I've been pretty close to being run down riding the ATVs around the shop parking lot.
Someone nearly backed into me, out of his parking spot, when I was riding a Busa a few weeks back. Then gave me a nasty look!

It might be his first bike... But that is a terrible accident which is why its important to always wear a lid no matter how short the distance is.

That is very sad.

My speculation is that he died from severe head trauma. I will point out, however, that no solid link is made between the fatality and lack of helmet so it is speculation based on likelihood, given the circumstances. Alternatively, it could have been the result of a neck injury or severe internal injury. We simply do not know.

Still, riding without a helmet is a very bad idea, regardless of how far you're going. A 450-lb motorcycle obeys physics that are not so intuitive. Hence, I put my helmet on even just to move my bike around to the back yard, and many times I don't even start the engine to do this because it's pretty much down hill the whole way.

I watched a guy leave the dealership lot on a brand new Honda VLX. My buddy was going over the bike with the guy. You could tell he just wanted to leave. He'd been riding "for years". Dude was in his mid to late 30s I'd suspect.

He starts revving this thing like it's a GSXR, pops the clutch and takes off. Death grips the throttle, rides through the grass, misses the mailboxes by inches and Tbones a passing Dodge. He's unhurt.

Walks back to the store and starts going off on the oil he slipped in at the entrance to the store. We all just sat there with our jaws on the ground.

It was at that time I've concluded that some people just have a date with death. If you don't have sense before the bike, it's going to be a short ride experience for you.

That sucks.....sorry for his family.

Guess it is all in how you approach things. When I picked my bike up last week I appreciated the mechanic coming out and going over things with me and pointing out stuff. I may have known what things were but he brought things up that were specific to my bike.

the mechanics went through stuff with me as well particular to my new bike. when i bought it last year, i had a friend with experience and a liscense ride it home for me, then i got used to it in empty parking lots before heading to the street. something i'd strongly recommend for any other new rider.

Is that why you were riding around the VIR paddock without a helmet?
