How is the do you hit a curb entering the freeway?
It's never the issue until you need it, on second thought, maybe he took a bug in the eye

if he wasnt wearing a helmet, the air probably got in his eyes because he was speeding, it was night time and he couldnt see very well?

There's always the possibility he was run out of his lane by a cager. Or forced to swerve and target-locked the curb

That goes without saying that it was a cager's fault

Maybe he tried and enter the freeway at the last second and didn't cut it enough and clipped the curb, I've seen plenty of people try and cut it close or get around the car in front of them and sometimes the odds just aren't on your side



Rip , it's still always sad to hear of another loss in our moto community

I knew the rider. Infact most the people posting in this thread do... if I were to same the name. YOU would all say "what the ?!?!!?"

He's gone to nearly most of our northside meets for the last several years.

I don't think I've ever seen him without a helmet nor a jacket(usually not leather) for that matter. But I don't know the situation.

10pm is a little early to be plastered; and he usually drinks in Humble when he does; but again I wasn't there.

What I can comment on, is it is very unfortunate and I wish his employee that stood by his side growing his business the best. He had a lot of life in him and I for one will miss the guy that always encouraged me to laugh when I didn't feel it inside.

Last I know, the curb he hit was the extension they put out that blends in with the onramp and we have lost several BMWs totaled out to customers driving over it hitting the onramp and southbound right after cypresswood. there are not reflective markers or anything. First I saw it, and I drive that turn 3-4 times a day, I fixated on it and couldn't figure out what it was. I bet at night, with low visibility, merging with traffic from three lanes into one, and on a bike, it comes up quickly if you don't expect that 15-20foot extension not to be there(and hasn't since Ive lived in TX)

Best wishes to the family, thank goodness didn't have kids.
