Rider down spotted BW8 north and West road

I spotted on the northbound service lanes a late model red R1 with two people on the ground. One was with a red jacket and long dark hair while the other was with a white tshirt and short dark hair. The moto was proped on the kickstand with tow trucks and police.

The one in the white shirt was responsive with what looked like some blood on their head. The other in the red jacket was in the grass/curb and didn't move.

I hope it's no one here and they're okay.

I live in the area and while I didn't see this one, for the past few months there have been a LOT of bikes making excessive noise with elevated rpms and often the sounds of multiple bikes. Sounds like a day at the track sometimes. And of course that then starts people giving me the critical eye when I drive by because you know ALL of those sportbikers are trouble. ;-)

Bikes will make noise, it happens.... Just don't be a jackass in yours and you wont get hassled, or if you do, you have a leg to stand on...


As for the riders, I hope they are ok or at least alive, no one deserves to die just for the fact of not wearing gear. is it dumb? sure, no reason to wish ill on someone...



When are you getting your bike back Nguyen?
