LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Hundreds gathered near 27th and Randolph Tuesday evening to honor their friend and biker, Tyler Roth, who was killed on his motorcycle at that same intersection Monday night.

“That is all he did, biking, friends, being there for anybody, his family, if someone called he was there to jump” Bailey Burke and Autumn Kouma said, friends of the late biker.

Roth was most known by his nickname “Uber” and the fact he always had a smile on his face.

“He just cared and you never saw him without a smile on his face, as soon as he pulled in and would take his helmet off, you would see the smile” Burke and Kouma added.

His friends said he was an avid biker and always followed the rules. He was a safe driver and was the friend yelling at others when they would get a little too rowdy on the bikes. Many of those same friends saying they were shocked to hear it was him, who was killed in the crash.

A large group gathered with their bikes not only to pay their respects but to send a message to others. ‘Look twice and save a life’ not just for bikes but for everybody on the road. “Look twice and then look again,” friends said.

‘Uber’ leaves behind a wife and three young children.
