ANOTHER rider down

This morning coming into work at the intersection of Genoa red bluff and the beltway passed an accident involving a motorcycle. At the look of things someone probably pulled out in front of him. This was a cruiser and he was not wearing full face helmet cause his face was bloodied. Ambulance was already on scene so hope he's ok.

I'm sure you see all the time like the rest of us. No offense meant to anyone specific, but you can't deny the mentality. It is the same mentality that keeps 90% of them from waving at sport bike riders.

Most of the time I don't see the sport bikes till they are on me, (speeding) no need to wave, I don't think they are looking in the mirror to check and see if my hand is out or not.

little bro

sorry to read about this accident but i'm also glad u posted it up. my little brother rides a cruiser and never wears a helmet. his gear consists of shades, bandana, and a cig in his mouth. it's an ongoing talk to him that i'd rather him wear a helmet and look a little goofy rather then nothing and look cool.

I've always thought that full face helmets looked way cooler than those little beanie caps.

Just my opinion.

whatever though ... hope this guy is okay.
