Sucks for the rider but i m glad he is ok and that you gave him some moral support by staying with him until the paramedics arrived.

Glad to hear it wasn't your friend. Sad thing is, he is somebody's friend/brother/son/relative. Maybe even a MHer here.

Umayr, this is the second bike accident on W. Little York. I've witness in less than a yr. last time was a HD rider that went down by himself further up the road.

When I first got off my bike, he was not moving. I feared the worst. Then after a while, he opened his eyes and started moving a little. It felt like a bite of potato stuck in my throat finally went down.

I still can't shake the feeling that had I not get stopped by the light at the previous intersection, that could've been me lying there. It is not a debilitating fear, or guilt, but it is a mighty sobering reminder of what is at stake each and every time we click our bikes into first gear.

i just read something about a couple weeks ago about two people crashing on west little york and the girl/guy died and then also about 3 weeks ago heard about another rider going down on the same road. I live right off this road. everyday im on this road

Agreed, good job on rendering aid. You helping someone out could possibly determine whether or not that person lives or dies.

Thanks guys. I really didn't do all that much. All I can think of at the time was that if it were me lying there, the sight of another rider might be of some little reassurance. That was all I could offer till the medics arrived.

A little bit goes a long way, man. I'm sure he was happy that you were there.

When I wrecked my bike last year, there were several cars that stopped in the middle of the road. One person in particular, got out of his car and began picking up parts to my bike to move them out of the road. All of this was done as I was being loaded up into the ambulance and taken to the hospital. I later watched the footage of my accident and saw this guy pick up my front nose fairing, it was broken off of the bike from the fairing stay. He also helped my buddy pick my bike up and got it loaded into his brother's truck. I would like to personally thank this guy along with the others. It just felt good that people actually cared for me after my spill. There are people out there that could care less about your accident and will just go on with their lives.

+1.... something about having another rider show up does make you way more calm and reassured. Good job man
