NW Motorcycle accident

Whenever I drive up towards flashing lights with wrecker drivers sitting in front and then seeing a bunch of cop cars with an ambulance, I always think "Please don't let it be a motorcycle". For the second time my prayers didn't come true.

7:45 pm. A black sportbike, apparently travelling west on West Little York laid on the ground in front of a silver car, apparently having just pulled out from Huffmeister. I didn't see a helmet or anyone looking like they were the rider. A lady was crying and a couple of people tried to calm her down. Everyone else, including EMS and cops seemed relaxed.

I have come out from Huffmeister myself and W Little York curves at that point and that does make it a bit difficult to see the traffic on that road. The bike hit the car in the front left and it showed a perfect indention of the front tire of the bike. Seemed not to be high speed related.

I pray and hope the rider is okay. If you post on here, let us know that you are okay!

Why? I like getting 45mph and my bike is great for commuting.

You know what really makes me wonder about crashing? Saw the AMA Supersport race from last weekend and Geoff May (?) had a bad crash when he hit Jamie Hacking's bike in the first round. He flew up in the air and hit the ground super hard. Still, he got up and walked away, both riders did.

I would wear full racing leathers before I'd think giving up street riding.

the difference on the track is that there are no cars to pull out in front of you no heavy traffic (like cars and trucks) that you have to watch for... sorry but full leathers isnt going to help if a car runs you over...

There is nothing wrong with wearing full leathers for street riding. I do. The result is when I got rear ended last year I walked away with a bruised heel and big toe.

This is about to turn into another big "wear you gear" or "dont ride" debate again like the last thread we had like this.

Either way, ride in your limits and wear your gear. The more obviously the better! May not save you completely but sure does make your chances alot better!

Thats all there is to it. If your worried about cars on the road, dont ride. Its always a risk everytime you ride but just be aware or your surroundings and know your outs.

I was just wondering if the rider was okay. Moe's comment was completely blown out of proportion.

By the way, there is a difference between riding within your limits and just getting into an accident at no fault of your own or riding reckless. Here, I am simply talking about a motorcycle accident and I hope the person was okay. We all know the risks of riding in traffic but nevertheless, I just hate seeing accidents were cars and motorcyles are involved. Merely concerned for fellow riders.

I'm with you on that one. I always pray for all the riders and for the people driving cars and trucks to see us. I know they will probably walk away but would you really want that on your mind. spared my life in my accident cause know one ran me over in the street after a truck side swiped me. I know he loves us all.

There is nothing on the Harris County Sheriff's Office release, so it wasn't a fatality, which is good!
