A friend of mine on the fire department called me this morning and told me about this accident. Burgendy 1995 GL1500. Apparently had a rear tire blowout.



Very sad to hear.

Sad and I hope folks picked up the no helmet blurb...I have been on the scene in the last two four years after Bike accidents that were fatal..Both individuals were not wearing helmet and the cause of death was attributed to that fact. If you have loved ones that depend on you..take all precautions. Thinking you are being cool is one thing but leaving family in a lurch is another. I feel for the relatives of this man.

Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience every time.

For the most part, our species is not smart enough to put that together

My condolences to the family

Prayers for the family.

Life is not a journey to the grave with
the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty & well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside,
totally worn out & proclaiming,
Wow, What a Ride!

Wasn't sure. They didn't release the victim's name, so I just thought I'd post this for general information

ATGATT.

You can die from traumatic head injury just by loosing your footing and having the bike fall over sideways, that pendulum motion from sitting on the bike to hitting the cement is enough to cause irreparable brain damage resulting in death or permanent vegetable status.

'RIDE TO BE SEEN'

Most common quote from a cager after killing a motorcyclist is?

"I never saw him".
