 @chris: lol !?? nothing remotely funny about your dumbass comment - i ride Burnaby Mt. and hope i never see you up there...you may think his death is an opportunity to be [ not ] funny and feel it is cool to make a 'balcony jumping' joke about this, but the real opportunity would have been not to expose your stupid self here and show respect for a life that was cut short by a mistake - NO doubt you have ever, or will ever, bring a fraction of the inspiration Dane did to so many - so go troll your idiot face and comments elsewhere, or, have 1/10 the gajones Dane had, think well about your comment and yet another opportunity to apologize out of respect to his passing, family and friends...

 it was only the first floor balcony, so less than 5 meters high, and it wasn't a huge gap or anything. But it shows how easily things can go wrong when alcohol is involved.
  • 5 1
 Seriously??? A man has died, a great rider who we ALL can relate to, and some of you guys want to talk trash about HOW he died??? Sure jumping off a balcony into a pool is dangerous, but so is riding our bikes like we do. The man has died and THAT is a tragedy. how he died is somewhat inconsequential cause it's over, he's not coming back and that is terrible both for the riding comunity and for his family/friends. Let me ask those of you who think you're too cool and funny talking shit about his death something: What if this was YOUR BEST FRIEND???? Would you be critiscizing HOW he died??? As a person who has lost TEN friends in the last 7 years (yes that's right TEN of my good friends one of whom was my best friend have died in the last 7 years, And I worked in an ER for years and have had people clutch onto me as they've died - really terrible) I can tell you all you would be doing is crying, feeling like CRAP and wondering if it was in some way your fault. Making light of a person dying makes you less then a person

Anyway, RIP to Dane. Our comunity is at a loss with you gone mate.

RHYS-THE-RIDER: Man I don't envy you being there mate. That must have been awfull aye. I'm so sorry that you had to go through that experience. I've seen SO many people die when I worked in a local ER and frankly after years of "getting used to it" I'm still not used to it. I'm sorry for your loss and for his friends/family's loss as well. Not to sound calous, but what pub was he at cause I used to live over there and spent ALOT of time on the gold coast esp. in pubs aye.

 @ The-Medic: thanks for echoing my sentiments and many others on this 'issue' - somehow evolution of the heart has passed up on many of the idiots commenting here - most of the trash talking is testosterone of the head [ dickheads ] and that's too bad cause it is testosterone that allows me to still shred at 68; most of the guys [ and a few gals ] i ride with are as young as 17 and up to about 45 and most can kill it on the sickest DH rips without the need to put someone else down in order to put themselves up...my point : ANYONE who thinks it is ok to make light of, or be preachy about Danes death HOWEVER it happened, has way too much testosterone which of course is why they are...PRICKS.

 Yeah, I agree. Death isn't sad in certain circumstances such as in extreme old age and so on, but this is truly sad; a talented young man died doing a stunt while devoid of his executive functioning. Alcohol kills via a plethora of methods. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, I hope they can find some peace and meaning in all of this.......man, just so sad.

 Great loss for a sport and for the community... To be honest I really think that security from this club should stopped him from jumping from the balcony. There's no excuse for his partying buddies either,when my friend is drunk and he's doing some crazy shit around the club I feel responsible to gain control of the situation and make him stop or get him out of the place... I saw that pool and it seems to be pretty hard for a person to hit the concrete around the swimming pool,if not being drunk or something. R.I.P. due,we all gonna miss U.
  • 8 11
 I heard rumors, that security tried to stop him, and that was the problem. The pool is so close to the balcony, even if he would have been drunk like hell he should not have missed it.
There are people who said, that a security guy tried to grap him or even grap him in the air and made him hit the concrete.

But I don't have any proof for this, nor did I see it. But there are many people saying this, who were around.
Would be good to know, and if tru they should put this f*cking security guy to jail for the rest of his life for killing Dane.

Anyways:
RIP Dane Searls - it was a pleasure to meet you in person back in 2010!!
  • 3 2
 I saw the photos too. Something had gone really wrong because this was no "stunt" at all. It was like jumping from the 5 meter tower into water. If the security guard story is true I really dont wanna be in the skin of this guard.

Ride in Peace, you will be missed Dane Searls
  • 14 0
 Mate the security guard was just doing his job. He didn't kill Dane, Dane killed Dane. His love for adrenalin and doing stunts turned out to be the death of him. Yes its sad that he is gone but you cant go blaming the security guard.

 @bikermaniac101:

I think you put this people on too high of a pedestal. They're just people who happen to be pretty good at riding bikes. However, often times, they are people who, for lack of a more elegant way of saying it, are dumb. Scientific studies have proven that adolescent males have a lower capacity for evaluating risks. I think that's why we see so many young, talented riders. Their diminished capacity for evaluating the risks of what they are doing allows them to push their limits and develop skills without the second-guessing and apprehension that most of us face when doing dangerous things. Some people mature in time before before statistics catch up to them, and tone down their lifestyle, taking only more acceptable risks. Others don't. Darwinism is ruthless.
  • 3 0
 @stever : while i pretty much agree with you, but, AT THIS TIME somehow your attempt to educate us all on the 'ruthlessness of Darwinism' is lost when suggesting Dane was 'dumb' and is akin to going to someones funeral and stating the same in the presence of so many who loved him regardless of his youthful exuberance that caused this tragedy...so while your puffed up scholarly comment may be appreciated by some cerebral intellectual hoodlum, to most of us, your comment was unecessary and is the dumbest of all, ergo, Darwin has a place even in your life.

 god bless you Dane - too soon...so young : and i rest my case as to all the self righteous comments posted from some, about him being stupid jumping off the balcony - we have all made mistakes and i have made a zillion similar to his but learned from them, as he would have no doubt - we all need to take a moment and consider the brilliance of his life and the inspiration of his legacy on a Bike before passing judgment; wisdom ONLY comes from making mistakes...the Creator has His/Her reason for taking Dane before this opportunity was given to Him - a moment of love for a brothers passing...

 Wow, that is terrible! I worked at another club on the gold coast about a year ago, and a very similar thing happened. Another 2 people fell from a bar and died, same city, just down the street. It was totally horrific. I feel for everyone who is effected by his passing. RIP

 Ok,. I will comment again. RIP DANE! I talked about Dane at a 12 step meeting today. About the possible use of Alcohol and its effects. Im not pushing this here. Thats not the point. The point is that Dane's name and reputation are being expressed after his death as a great man. He really influenced allot of people. Now a newer group of people know of him that would not have known before. The room was silent after I told this tragic story. They were really listening.!! I was choked up... I had to stop talking.. I was very proud at that moment to belong to a community of such fine outstanding people like Dane and everyone here at Pink Bike... RIP my Friend...
