I would hate to tell you who i think it was, b/c it would make for a relly fugged up story. Let me contact a few people before i start posting speculations up on the net. . .

Update: I just walked the scene of the crash, and it appears as if the man(in his mid 40's) was traveling above 100MPH when he realized he was not going to make the turn in the road(all speculation on my part about not making the turn) and he Locked up the rear brakes for about 100ft and lowsided. Once the bike was lowsided, it appeared to slide 15 more feet before hitting the guardrail and coming back across the lanes of oncoming traffic. There is spraypaint outlining his final resting place. I'm pretty sure the man was not from this forum. Any more info will be posted as i receive it. My prayers go out to his friends and family.
