New Rider Down

So a good friend of mine and his boss each went out and bought Harley's last Friday. My buddy got a 1981 Harley Shovelhead. I don't know what his boss had. Yes, had.

He had ridden years ago and I guess he figured it would all come back to him pretty quick. He went out 2 days later, on Sunday, and killed himself. No helmet and no gear.

A car that was in front of him switched lanes all of the sudden, he locked up his back wheel then highsided off the bike when he released the rear brake (we've all seen this happen). My friend remembers telling him that he needed to start using more front brake. He died in the hospital a few hours after the accident.
