And this is why you wear your freakin lid!

Something so simple could have saved this mans life.

(pictures in link)

"Late Monday afternoon a concrete truck had broken down just past the entrance ramp of FM 3083 to I45 north. As other vehicles entered the freeway they were forced to slow down. That’s what witnesses described a white male on a motorcycle enter the ramp at a high rate of speed. Seeing the vehicles slowing down the motorcycle driver identified as John Patrick Conklin, 63, of Conroe, braked heavily and laid the motorcycle on it’s side. With the forward motion the Conklin separated from the motorcycle and with no helmet slammed into the rear of a convertible.

Conklin was transported to Hermann Hospital in Houston in critical condition with a severe head injury. He was not wearing a helmet.

I45 was closed for a little over an hour as Conroe Police investigated the crash. There were no other injuries.

Conklin passed away Tuesday morning from his injuries."

you just figured that out?

brilliant this one is

hang around, how many crashes/deaths have you read on here in a few months you've been here?

now hang around for 10yrs

sucks dude died, could have all been prevented by alot of things that he coulda done.

in my book just another dead rider. look across the country, how many riders die a day? alot. how many people die a day, alot, how about the world alot.

Coulda been both Racer, kinda hard to say w/o beeing there for it. Heck, could have been the rider thought he had to 'lay it down'. We know that, claim/excuse comes up often enough.

I would be interested in his experience.. "high speed on the ramp then laying it down on the brakes" plus no lid.

RIP but sad choices across the board.

Respect given where it's due. Just because he was on a bike doesn't automatically earn respect.. sorry.

Or just plain old respect for those who have passed. Doesn't matter if they rode it not.

He made HIS choice. He may have paid for it with his life but it doesn't mean you have to be a about it.

Does matter how they acted and why they passed tho.. idiots acting the fool earn zero respect.

Just another Darwin award.
