you know what.... I love stunters. I love watching them. I have several friends that stunt. but there is a time and place. I figure everyone one of those hats knew the plan on shutting down the freeway, including the guy that was "just minding his own business". so, posing for a pic on the beach... no problem. I'll gladly take the pics for them. hang out and watch them practice in a lot... no problem. I've taken loads of pics for the guys. associate with them.... even better. my old tattoo'd feels young again hangin with young tattood . just keep that off the streets.

I can see how my comment would have brought you to assume that I'd think anyone riding without gear is automatically considered a "douche".

I based my opinion on who he was riding with, and what he was riding for/to. He knew exactly what was going to happen on this ride, and he chose to ride with these people.

If you want to ride with a bunch of people who ride reckless and shut down a freeway, I will call you a douche.

What are the legal repercussions if you bump a bunch of a-holes stopped on the highway?

Sounds like a call for wackjum?

Is Brian Hampton the one wearing the Jersey with the number 41 in the back? If so, you can see in the video he is walking after the crash.

...and this matters how?

I had a gf that went two weeks with a leg fracture
before her folx took her to the Doctor.

Adrenalin, shock... minimal swelling at that point. It's not uncommon for accident victims to try to get up and/or move around. Doesn't meant their not hurt, they just don't neccessarily feel or realize it yet.

We should all go out now and start ramming gearless bikers off the road so they don't ever ride again, who's with me??????? Seriously??? That, and we should make sure anybody that's willing to turn us in will get the silent treatment. WIN

Do you know he was there, in attendance last year?

You're making assumptions... it's really irrelevant to this thread. What this i about, is 1 rider being taken out by another rider who was 'stunting' (or more accurately, trying to stunt) on a public roadway. A recent incident that I felt helps highlights the problem with those that thinking stunting or riding like an on public roads is ok, and that people should 'mind their own business'.

Btw are you aware you're displaying the same behaviour/mentality as when drivers complain in general about 'riders'. 'Because one or two do it, they're all guilty of it'.

I never said he was in attendance last year. I was only mentioning it because there was a "tribute ride" last year where they shut down the highway.

I'm not a stunter, and I've only been in Texas for a little over a year, and I knew about this ride and what was going to happen. I'm sure he knew exactly what was going to happen. Sure it's an assumption and I could be wrong. If I am, than I'll take back my douche statement and apologize to him.

I never said all people without gear should be run off the road. It's hot as out here. I was only commenting that...

1. He probably would have been okay had he been wearing gear.

and

2. The streets are probably better off without another "douche" rider on the streets. (Yes, douche, because he was on this ride to begin with).

Hampton suffered a bad case of road rash on his arm and his ankle was broken so badly it required surgery.
I have seen it in the past too. However, the way I read the news report, I was picturing a severe fracture, maybe even exposed. You would not be walking after something like that. Anyway, I could care less about Hampton or the other guy, they are both squids to me.
