Yeah, it appeared he went off right where the turn started, it wasn't like he was in the middle of the turn and went wide.

Guess what, experienced riders have died on group rides. Lone riders have died. Riding motorcycles is dangerous

ride

I just received a phone call from Karthick's family, He is in stable condition. he was removed from Icu to a regular room, as what i was told, he might not need surgery on both of his tibia and fibula, but he will need surgery for his femur.

if anyone wants to visit him at memorial herman. pm me for the room number.

Also his family wants me to express the gratitude to all the riders were there helping Karthick......thank you all very much

that's the same every cop has to say at every bike crash.... They are tired because that's all they do for a leaving is accident reports on bikes...yes they are tired because they've been doing it for too long. Lol
