I have never had a friend pass away thankfully, but did have my best friend become paralyzed in a bike accident. He was taken out by a car, entirely not his fault. Fresh after the accident, it was very easy to give up my bike.
After I was bikeless, I was sad, and got excited like a little kid every time I saw a bike. All I thought about was bikes. It took me several years to finally get to the point where I could afford another bike, but once I did, I can honestly say I was much happier. I take all precautions that I can, ATGATT, and ride sensibly. But giving up something that made me happy, is not a good way to live a life.
