Another fallen harley rider

Just heard on KTRH about a Harley rider dying with only 60 miles on the bike. After a quick search I didn't see anything, so if anyone finds something go ahead and post it here. Don't know any other details.

Go to be at least the 4th one in a week

The Chron said he wasn't wearing a helmet. However, the Chron is a newspaper and newspapers suck. The police reporter said he WAS wearing a helmet. At least that's what the comments say, we know how trustworthy the internet is, he's a pretty cool guy. It's sad though. RIP old man.

Oh by this way, I don't know if you guys know this, but I heard on the interwebs that motorcycles were dangerous. I know this is a fact that you were previously unaware of, you should go ahead and scratch that M off your license.

Not only did he have a helmet, but he was an experienced rider. He had a cross country trip planned next week.

It said he was coming out of a curve straight and true, but then the bike started to go right, and he hit a driveway. Possibly tire or bike failure? Wind? Heart attack? Too weird...

fify

True but there are many senseless deaths because people fail to educate themselves on how to ride or be better riders and fail to wear safety gear. In this case it may have not mattered.

RIP.

My condolences to his Family.

That's a weird accident. No over-speed or anything wrong. What could cause the bike to drift to the right? Do police investigate if there was a malfunction with the bike?

I would expect so since it's a fatality. I'd bet something happened with the rider rather than the bike.

RIP
And after the four twits I met up with last night I'm really surprised we don't have another sportbike rip thread. On my way up to the north side and back (6:30-9:30 Plenty of traffic) I met two separate riders, one on 45 (helmet under the seat but he had a bandana over his mouth) and one on 290, and on my way back south two riders together on 610 east bound south loop. All had to be close or over XXXmph and playing "thread the Needle". All riding like the last time they took a they wiped the remander of their brains off with paper.

And this guy here sounds like he knew how to ride safely. Peace to friends and family.

RIP.

On my work commute home from the Woodlands to Heights, I usually see 1 or 2 dumbass sportbike riders on 45S. Friday had one idiot in a t-shirt with his helmet strapped to the seat lane splitting at 80+. Young, dumb and full of....

That road looks pretty straight right there. if he was 'coming out of a curve' he had already pretty much straightened it out at the time of the accident. gotta bet on gross rider error in his one. sucks.

The second link in this thread said the emergency crew worked him for about 30 minutes before pronouncing him dead. That's a no-no for trauma. If you're gonna work them, you do it on the way to the hospital. ...if you're dead because of trauma, most EMS crews won't even try to resuscitate you. Only reason to work someone on scene for that long after trauma is if you suspect the trauma was caused by something medical, i.e. heart attack while driving then running off road and hitting a tree. Given the witnesses's account of the events, I'd say that's most likely the case.

Maybe they were working on him while waiting for Life Flight to arrive
