Riders down - Forest Gnome ride - update needed

FYI - 2 riders went down on the Forest Gnome ride today.

Separate incidents.

Chris Burni went down on 3090 in the S turn just a few miles from Hwy 90 He was transported to the hospital in College Station by ambulance.
He was talking and coherent when he was loaded. Nothing broken that I could see.

Does anyone have an update on Chris Burni ??

The second rider went down (over the bars I heard) and was not hurt, but the throttle and brake were broken in the crash. This was on 3090 just a few miles further from the first wreck at the 15MPH 90 degree left where the dirt county road meets it. I do not know his name, sorry. He rides a GSX-R and has the red spikes on his helmet. They managed to limp it to Yankees somehow.

Please put this post where it belongs if it needs to be moved.

That 15mph left got me on my first forest ride. Hopefully the only long-term effect of the get-offs is bruised egos.

I went and got chris's bike in navasota yesterday and am stashing it till he is ready to come get it. When I talked to chris he was sore but not injured. His bike is actually in really good shape new radiator and hose some plastics and a mirror he's ready to rock.

How did we have a rider go down at squid falls? Nobody pulled over to slow the new people down on entry?

Doesn't sound like a gnome ride.

Nope, don't think there were any Gnomes involved...
