I don't know what to say. I've seen and done a lot. I can't judge. happens. But you just gotta kind of just not let a ride go this way as best as you can. Haul mail if you like, just let's not pick eachother up off the road. Remember, motohouston members aren't the only ones riding 2 wheels. I've seen a dude on a gsxr 1000 wearing shades t shirt shorts no helmet no gear in flip flops with no fear at all blonde hair flowing in the wind older dude, left my sight on 149. Seen him multiple times. But I have almost 20000 miles in 3 years in those woods. This is just the way it is sometimes. He would only be ticketed if he was charged with anything. Its an automobile accident in volving a mc. Its when you become fearless that happens. Rip.

RIP to the rider...sad story for sure.

Maybe the bike was ex-track bike. Looks to have Traxxion Dynamics decal on the fork lowers, Vortex gas cap, steel upper fairing bracket, track aluminum gauge bracket, mirror block off plates, and if you look closely at the video, the crown nut on the axle looks to have safety wire going to the rear brake caliper. Someone on this forum probably knows him.

You forgot the PC3... Appeared to be a Vortech fairing stay.

I'd be more than happy for you to pay for a track day at GSS for me, but I'm going to have to use the word "Bad" as part of my user name first, so everyone will know I'm a badass.

Placing blame does little in any motorcycle wreck. The concequences are what we should reflect and dwell on.

Totally agree, but it's a bit late for that now.

very sad. if it would have been a fully loaded log truck (70k pounds) DOING THE SPEED LIMIT instead of a bike, that pickup truck would be a twisted can. Both are at fault and in my opinion the truck is more as he was u-turning on the otherside of the hill. my point: if it would have been a log truck traveling a legal speeds, we would say it was the pickup drivers fault.
