Rider down on beltway 8

My girlfriend just called me and told me a rider on an R6 just crashed right in front of her on beltway 8. She stopped to ask if he was okay and the first question he asked was where was his bike so I guess he was okay. The bike slid pretty far ahead of him. She said he sped past her and then lost control. This was near Chinatown areaish and westheimer.

Anyone else hear of anything?

Just talked to my girlfriend again, orange R6. He was wearing jeans, t-shirt, and helmet. She said he was in really bad condition, like his skin was peeling off or something. He was conscious though.

Bad news. Sorry to hear it. - I don't know how many times it can be said about the importance of gear. Some people just don't think it will happen to them.

I told a guy on a 250R that his jacket offers a ton of protection. He said "what jacket?" I told him.. "exactly" then the light turned green.

Everyday there are ppl who comment on all the gear I wear. It's unfortunate. Crashing with no gear is not fun - ask Mr. D. I think he spews the atgatt now.

Nice.

I took a short ride a few nights ago without my jacket, I couldn't even enjoy the ride because I was so paranoid. Never doing that again.

Well, I'm sure once the pain really sets in, he'll be a believer in buying some gear.

shame.

Hope the guy learns and teaches someone else a thing or two along the way.

Right about now would be a good time to bump that www.ride2die.com website.

I'm sure it's posted on here somewhere. Very powerful images.

Glad he's ok, but he's gonna be sore in the morning, if he isn't sore right now. Bald Harley rider (no gear/tee shirt and jeans) pulled up next to me at the light and asked, "Are you hot with all that stuff on?". I told him yeah but the concrete is hotter and it doesn't give.
