Rider down Kemah bridge Canam Spyder

He was on a red Canam Spyder. The bike was upside down against the barrier and he was laying on his side on the Northbound lanes. He had a group around him on the phones. Hope he makes it.

It's no secret.

You're riding down the street, minding your own business, and a car moves into your lane because they didn't see you...

if there was rider error it does not preclude the well wishes for his recovery.
It would be nice to be able to call him a dumbass to his face after his complete recovery.

It was an older white guy. Looked to be about 50 and out of shape.It looked like it had just happened and I did not see any sign of a lid. He was wearing a jacket though. It was cold. Pretty sure it was a red Spyder
