Rider Down

A longtime customer of mine went down a few minutes ago in Austn Tx. He is okay but is missing alot of skin. He has been riding for 2 years now and lost control of his 09 zx6 (the blue one with custom exhaust). He was wearing a helmet and gloves. I took his shoes off in the wreck and he wasn't wearing a jacket. The cause of the accident is unknown at this point. Be careful guys and wear the gear.

I have a great mesh jacket that I wear in the summertime! It's not heavy and it keeps me cooler than letting the sun bear down on me.

I've known two riders who have gone down at high speed in similar jackets with great results.

There is a 250ft skid mark on the road about 50ft from where the bike ended up so it looks like a panic reaction to someone pulling out in front of him. At the beginning of the marks for about 30ft the rear tire was "jumping" like a over downshift. It was on a straight road right before a 2 way stop where he had the right of way. I will post pics of the bike and him later when he is released from the hospital.

His parents are pretty shook up about it. His dad came to the shop where the bike was and "vented" on me about his hatred of "these death machines". It's days like these it's hard to work on bikes.

It is hard at times, but had he been wearing proper gear, I am sure his dad would have been worried and not .

Glad to hear he survived his ordeal, hopefully this will be the push it takes him him to gear up in the future if/when he puts his leg over another bike.

He was released from the hospital last night. He came by to see his bike, he had a cast on his foot and arm, along with plenty of rash.

We will be using his bike for our next build. We are shooting a documentary/tech video and will be uploading the build in my subforum.

Yea, tell him to spend some of that cash on some gear, austin drivers blow.

I swear I would almost be hit everytime I came within 3 miles of buda. Hence why I would take the backroads when heading to lime creek... was much more fun anyway.

Yeah he is getting gear whether he wants it or not. I'm still trying get him to let me strip his bike down and do a Sportbobber, but he likes the plastic....oh well.

you could always graft a different rear onto his, and maybe cut away some of the plastics to reveal more of the motor.

First of all - sorry for the threadjack (lest I get a warning). The jackets are Fieldsheer. One rider wearing one highsided going too hot into a corner, and another failed to notice the road ended and took a gravel corner going 100+. The rider in the highside had to replace his jacket due to the sleeve tearing (had a small (quarter-size) rash on wrist, but the other rider still wears his. For the price of a mesh (<$100) and comfort in the heat it's very much worth it to own.
