rip, yea its pretty well known now in the town... everyone who rides at all knows bout it, and its really sad..... but not alot can be said for the young lady, all too often i see this same situation, just the results are less severe, like my fathers friend, was drivin down university when a lady pulled out infront of him and sent him over the front of the car.... sorry gals but it seems to be young college girls not paying enough attention and making dumb mistakes, which in this case cost this man his life, im not tryin to be sexist or anything, but it seems that way from the crashes ive seen like this....

RIP to the rider. I just moved from CS, but I didn't know or ride with him.

I have no solid opinion on who's at fault as I wasn't there. I almost always want to blame the motorist because I feel bad for a fellow rider, but here's some things about this accident that are interesting for the people automatically blaming the motorist without having been to the area the accident happened.

Francis Dr. dead ends into Texas Ave in front of A&M. Francis heads east from Texas Ave. So if the driver was turning left onto Francis across Texas she would be showing the bike her passenger side. If she was trying to gun it and out turn him, I don't see how his impact could have "finished her off", meaning her SUV was leaning hard to one side and he hit her on the other side to push her over the edge. Her SUV would have been leaning INTO him. How can a bike traveling anywhere near posted speed limits hit the side of an SUV leaning into him and push it back flat onto it's tires and then all the way over the other side? The accident photo shows the SUV on it's left side (driver) and the SUV would have been struck on it's right side. See google maps if you wish.

The riders friend said... "He hit [the SUV] in the middle," he recalled. "He slammed on his brakes, but there was only about 18 inches between him and the vehicle. There is no way that he could have stopped."

18 inches????? That makes me question whether the girl was stupid enough to pull out in front of a bike she could easily see, trying to beat it across the road.... or whether the bike was traveling so fast she couldn't judge it's speed. I ride, and sometimes I still have a hard time judging the speed of a bike coming straight towards me. It's too small to reference sometimes, especially at night with headlights.

I'm not trying to upset anyone here or take blame away from the guilty party. I just think we don't really know who is at fault here, and it's not fair to point blame at someone when it's not completely justified based on information given.

Again, RIP to the rider. No matter how it went down, it really sucks to lose a fellow rider.

You might be talking about RedAggie03. He had a yellow genII sv650 w/ some nice mods but sold it last year.

Rest in peace.

Seems to me that a vehicle making a left turn in front of an oncoming vehicle would be leaning over toward the other vehicle and not away from it, especially if they punch it and try to finish the turn quickly.

Really sad! As most of you know I just lost a friend last month when the icecream guy made a u turn in the middle of 1960. Most NOT all people in cars, suv,trucks etc... just don't seem to care or respect us and may never will....My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends......

Yeah It wasn't his bike, he gave up street riding. Besides that, he had lower fairings on it and it was and 04 with a silver frame not to mention the other track goodies on it.

RIP the the fallen rider. I feel for the girl that has to deal with the fact that she has to go on in life knowing that an accident that she was in resulted in the loss of a life.

and no, 55 is not 40, but if you tell me that you have never sped on your motorcycle then I would be hard pressed to believe you.
Wanting cops to obey laws like the rest of us is a dream. We all know they do not do it. When they get pulled over by other cops they show their badge and get off. They call it "professional courtasy". Didn't mean to ruffle feathers but it is the truth. As for speeding, yes I do it SOMETIMES. I am a professional driver. I make my living with my license. I've had 1 speeding ticket my whole life and no at fault accidents. I can talk.
