Plus infinity for you my friend: well done! Blessings upon the rider.
Out today here in Sugar Land I had a young lady pull the left turn in front of me gambit, then and stop in the middle of the road when she saw me. Fortunately I anticipated her and scrubbed speed off and via covered brakes. Sometimes I will eye lock these people and shake my head no: the white Shoei full face in motion might help recognition.

I shake my head at people all the time, but also thank people who notice me and give me a wide berth.

Yeah, glad you stopped to "help". Maybe next time you might consider respecting the man enough to not post his naked on the interwebs for people to mock. You people are frikking amazing.

On Easter Sunday some friends and I were on FM 3090 (Bryan), I went too long into a turn ..........There was gravel on the outside of the lane, and I went down , at about 70mph.......My Helmet saved my life, as my body slammed into a concrete culvert........I was wearing full riding gear, and although I am injured and broken.......It made a difference!

I pray for every rider I see, every time. Karma is real stuff I think. Putting good energy out there pays off. Entering H 59 S here in Sugar Land today: a truck moved lanes for me and was very courteous. I had nice relaxing 75 mph cruise down to Rosenberg from Sugar Land. Not every cager is a jerk. Given that, I can't wait to gear up and ride tomorrow and Sunday....

So where are the pics some random stranger took of you when he stopped to help?

Valid point, but it's not like the rider's face, license plate, or any other identifying information is shown..

I think the pictures make the story more real. It makes me angry that nobody else thought to help and only sat there honking. It makes it worse that this appears to be in a residential / suburban area.

If it were on 610 near PP1, yeah I'd get it, most people wouldn't have any way of knowing how seriously someone's injured, but this is a bit disgusting.

+1 to OP for rendering aid and potentially saving a person's life

They live with themselves because they just blame it on someone else like we are taught too in modern society. There reasoning goes as follows, " he did not die because I refused to stop, he died because someone else refused to stop."

Good job stopping. Can't believe drivers just drove by knowing he was lying down hurt by himself. Ride safe everyone.

Like everyone else, I want to thank you and congratulate you for stopping. Having said that, I just got home from riding my V-star without my helmet. I could make a lot of excuses about why, but I won't. I'll just consider myself properly chastised.

Again.
