rider down on I-10 yesterday evening. katy area

I saw a few bikes wad up about 50ft in front of me yesterday. Was wondering if anyone knew if the guy on the Harley lived. One was a Harley with no helmet... and the other looked to be a green kawi 600. He had a helmet and cat like reflexes.

I've never seen anything like that in my life. Prayers go out to those guys for sure.

It happened so fast I don't really know. All I remember is seeing a guy in flying in the air and then running past my car and after he got up and I looked over and was checking on the other guy on the road with a bike on top of him. Looked dead to me. I guess the cars right on font of me ran into them.

LOL At 'cat like reflexes'...wish they were faster.
I'm trying to track the Harley....he was stable when they life flighted him but didn't look good. No gear at all except his colors vest.

Glad your ok man. I saw you flying through the air in those leopard print skinny jeans and you looked like a cat lol. You sprawled and slid to a stop like a pro. Bounced up and and walk right next to me. I was in shock it went down so fast . I'm glad that guy is alive. I thought his number was up without a helmet on.

I shot Buzzfest all day the day after before the real soreness came on...stumbled up on stage to do the buzz staff shot and even made it for the after party to celebrate my wife's bday...where drunk chicks forgot and kept slapping me on the ...my very, very bruised .

On the bright side Shinedown, Sick Puppies, & POD signed the lid.

My fav watch I got in the bahamas got trashed but still works...ish.

I gotta say Progressive has been great...even thought this past weekend was busy with MC accidents with MotoGP, Back the Badge, etc...they cut me a check for a new bike, helmet, and gear yesterday.


Will start looking around today...I gotta decide quick or else my wife will make me get...

May be a good time to upgrade to a 250R. 45ccs more will be a big improvement in HP.
Glad you OK and healing up.

Progressive worked fast...already looking for a new bike. Looking for a gsxr600/zx6r/650/r6...will be talking to my insurance agent in the morning to get an idea on rates...shouldn't be *too* bad since I'm 40 and clean-ish record. Part of me wants to get a new Ninja 300 but as long as insurance isn't gonna kill me, I'll get a used 600...I've seen a few I dig in our classifieds and CL.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys but in order from low to high, insurance costs should go:

Ninja 300
Ninja 650
GSXR600
ZX6R
F6/F6s

Although it's a euro article, this mentions the gsxr as one of the least expensive 600 to insure.:

Thoughts/Comments?

I've always been a sucker for that Formula One 600 straight 4 sound.
