venting about fatal motorcycle wreck last night

i don't post much,but have to get this off my chest after reading the paper.it was an accident on the causeway last night where a motorcycle rider lost his life while he and his so called buddies were weaving in and out of traffic.the rider had no helmet on.well the disgusting part was after the wreck,his punk friends kept going and didn't return to the scene. .if you were in that group you're a coward and a worthless human.that sperm should have been shot on your mamma's stomach or better yet swallowed!!!!

sorry mods,but that me off.

Were the friends even aware that their buddy had crashed? Sad story, but be very doubtful of what you read in the newspapers, they don't always get the facts right before they print it.

I would HOPE that his "friends" would notice he wasn't with them at their next stop or turn, and go back to see?

If not, then they were exactly as called in the first post.

Ride like an idiot and die like one..

Details from Galveston County Daily news.

Pearland man dies in causeway wreck

By Sara McDonald
The Daily News

Published February 26, 2007

A motorcycle driver was killed Sunday night when he clipped the back of a truck and lost control on the causeway, Galveston Police Department Capt. Mike Putnal said.

Police believe that the driver, 44-year-old Charles Shewall of Pearland, was in a group of motorcycle drivers who were weaving through traffic while speeding, Putnal said.

After the wreck, the group of motorcyclists continued driving, Putnal said.

The wreck happened about 7:45 p.m. and shut down northbound traffic on the causeway for about five minutes. Then, all northbound traffic was diverted to the right-hand lane for the next hour as police investigated.

Putnal said he didnít know if the driver hit anything besides the back of the pickup before losing control and flipping.

Putnal said Shewell died at the scene and that he was not wearing a helmet.

The truck Shewell hit will not be citied, Putnal said.

Maybe they didn't know this guy.
Maybe they were drunk.
Maybe they didn't realise that they lost someone.

It was his choice to ride like he was riding (maybe he was acting a fool maybe not) but either way. It was his choice. 44 years old, cant say young and dumb.

True.

Actually +40 on bikes of +1200cc have the highest fatality out of all age groups.

"After the wreck, the group of motorcyclists continued driving, Putnal said"

Reads to me like the riders stopped, then left. Not sure if it happened that way. But if it did, that is really sad. When I ride with a group, I prefer to ride in the back that way I can keep an eye on everybody. Also if the the front riders get to aggressive for my style, then I can just take my time and catch up at my pace. I know my limits and don't drive beyond them. I can't understand why someone would choose to ride without at least a jacket and helmet.

Alot of the guys that are out there cruizing together are not friends. Choose your riding partners carefully. Just because you show up at some meeting place like PP1 does not mean they are going to care about your safety. Exactly why I ride with FRIENDS or at the track.

Are you sure about this statistic? It seem like it would be 16 to 24 on litre bikes would be more prone for fatalities.

Yep, it used to be the young cats on crotch rockets. It is now the midlife crisis just bough a big cruiser group.

maybe it's just in raw numbers instead of relative percentages. like maybe there's a million 40+ that ride 1200+ bikes, but only 200k 16-24 with 1000+CC, and hence a smaller amount of deaths, but i don't know. that's why it's important to be very clear when laying out statistics.

it's the mid-life crisis group that rode years ago and have decided to start again and get on a big, powerful bike and then toss it.

Yes - statistically, it's the mid-life group because there are more of them on the road. And women are dying too.

Not to mention "I'm old and wise so i dont have to wear a helmet" that adds up for those mid lifers. little do they know its not their mid life.. its closer to the end everytime they hop on without a lid.

those stats make sense... I think the young ones on crotch rockets get more publicity because they normally go out with a bang big enough to shatter the helmet, and not just laying it over and hitting there helmetless head.
