I used to be one of those goons in Victoria (lived right off of J Stockbauer). I left that scene way behind me when I moved up here.


RIP to the fallen and a speedy recovery to the others injured.

Yep agreed, I was actually out helping my friend get comfortable riding yesterday, when our other bud pointed out the wreck site. I don't think I've ever stayed in second gear for so long! Much less riding UNDER the speed limit. We were trying soo hard to keep him in a decent comfort zone and it seems to be working as he is really taking to riding and is blowing up my phone to go riding already today haha

I stay away from all these fools down here. I have no interest whatsoever riding with them. My stepdad and his son know how to ride so we hit the twisties when we get a chance. But riding with these inexperienced people that truly believe they can ride because they have a right hand and a SS bike, I'll take a pass

Like the couple from Houston in Austin this summer. Newer inexperienced rider. All so young.

I stopped riding on the roads after someone crashing on the hill country rides every weekend we went and rode 2 summers ago. It was almost always the younger inexperienced riders trying to keep up the faster pace.

Just didnt want to be on a ride where this happened, no way. I dont know how I would handle knowing someone crashed and died trying to keep up or because I crashed and made them go down. Cause by letting a very inexperienced rider ride with you, I feel that you are in a way responsible for their safety. Thats why I started riding in the very back when we had inexperienced riders so they wouldnt feel bad being last and try to ride over their heads.

I cannot even begin to imagine how her parents and siblings must feel. Such a bad thing to happen to such a young person.

Captain M, That's how it should be done, but seldom is. Too often new riders are shown a sink-or-swim attitude, or perhaps the more experianced riders forget how it was to be a newbie.

Sometimes ya just gotta start with a "This is the clutch, this is the front brake..." lesson.
