Rider down Northside

Witnessed it as I was driving home. Looked to be an early 90's GSXR (not sure) Rider was going east on Spring Cypress. Car turned right on red from Old Holwarzth right into his path. He had no time to react. Hit the back of the car and flipped over landing in the street. Luckily he had a helmet on, not so luck was the fact that he was wearing shorts and a tank top. His left ankle was toast, lots of road rash. He was coherent at the scene. Was complaining of pain in his abdomen. We gave him some water and shielded him from the sun till the ambulance arrived. Don't know if he's on MH. Hope he turns out ok.

Yeah I have too. Stayed there for an hour, gave statements to the PD. Looks like the driver took responsibility and had insurance. His ankle is going to need a lot of work

Hope the rider turns out OK. Not to be an (ok maybe), but luck has nothing to do with wearing gear.

Of course there are many riders that die in full gear.

I wear gear at all times. Sucks with the heat, but I wear it for the road rash, that stuff hurts more then a broken arm does, I should know, LOL. Yeah it is hot but you never know when you will need it. So just wear it.

I wish I knew what hospital he was in. The rash hurts more than a cracked pelvis. Believe me. I know.

"Dress for the crash, not for the ride"
"You can wash off sweat, you can't wash off road rash"

Etc.

GL to down rider but atleast the guilty driver didn't try to run off and/or not have insurance. And ty to OP for assisting...I hope *when* I go down, someone is around to render aid to me, as I am sure we all hope for

Im seein more and more of the NO GEAR....Sometimes I just want to pull the guy over somwhere and be like, yo dumbass do you even consider what will happen if you crash, I mean really consider. Flesh hittin Hot concrete at 50,65,80mph. Your skull slammin down on the ground at over 1000lbs of pressure. Other 4,000lbs cars runnin your bones,guts and face over while they are doin 60+mph. Then after that, all the surgeries and rehab and skin peeling that you will have to endure? Now you think of that next time your wearin shorts, tank top and no helmet! Have a good day

How about when the skin grows over the wrapping and then you have to rip everything off just to re-wrap it?

Good on you for watching out for other riders.

Good quotes above from O; I like "dress for what you want the paramedics to pry off of you."

good job to the orignal poster!!!

I have two neighbors/friends that recently bought bikes and they will not listen to me about wearing protective gear. You just can't help some people. The worst part is that they are brand new riders...no experience. One is riding an older Honda Shadow 600 that needs major maintenance and the other is on a brand new Yamaha FZ6. I was behind him yesterday and watched in horror as he pulled out of our neighborhood. T-shirt, shorts, with his 11 year old on the back with the same thing on (shorts and T-shirt). I cringed at the thought of him going down with his daughter riding along....They were at least wearing helmets...
