Kid must have been really moving in order to impact that much! It's a wonder why insurance premiums are sky-high for these Japanese sports bikes! Slow the down! RIP!

It seems he was driving on the wrong side of the road. There's a skid mark on the wrong side of the road, he hit the passenger side of the car, and the car never crossed the median. Sad deal.

RIP. I wish they reported what his estimated speed was. The speed limit on that stretch of Fuqua is 40 mph. Wide open suburbia road like that and a 600cc-supersport? His 'speeding' likely was at least 50 mph. I've seen riders exceed the limit by 15-20 mph often.

Most people have a 1 second reaction time to hit both front and rear brakes (many riders only use front). Depending on if you have ABS, rider experience, road conditions, and a well maintained bike, your total stopping distance varies.

http://www.bikesafer.com/detail/braketime.html

At 35 mph = roughly 90 feet to stop.
At 50 mph = just over 150 feet to stop.
At 65 mph = just under 250 feet.

This is assuming everything is optimal like above. For 95% of us, these distances increase. I know a sportbike rider who refuses to ride anywhere but the track. His thirst for speed would get him killed on Houston's streets. Sadly, due to lack of time, money, and wisdom, most sportbike riders buy 600/1000cc bikes without paying $150/track day. Instead, they ride the street like it was a professionally maintained closed-course race track.

Every rider on sport bikes I see on the street are always way above the posted speed limits. I wonder if the fatality rate for sport bikes is higher than cruisers. I read somewhere that the main cause of fatality in the cruiser segment is due to DUI/DWI.

I m sorry for the sorrow this bring to his Family. So young.

Always expect that any on coming traffic is going to turn left in front of you and regulate your speed accoordingly. Most drivers see that one or two headlights really close together and assume you are much futher away than you really are. Why? Because at night a bike looks like a car much further down the road. People judge the closeness of the machine by the size of the light or how far apart they are. They also use the rate at which the lights separate to determine closing speeds. None of that works with a bike which generally is also travelling faster than expected. You have to think for other drivers and leave yourself an out.

Sadened by the loss of this young guy. Stay safe out there. Ride inteligently and decissively.

Yea pretty much what I was thinking. I understand people want to learn from other peoples mistakes, but geez. Most of the RIP threads turn into somehow bashing the rider when they have no evidence..

Red and blue strobes are going to get you a big ticket and possible ride especially facing front. Unless you have a badge to go with it.

I am aware that they are not allowed! but better safe than sorry. Lots of cars turning left in front of me very often. Good thing that I don't get carried away and keep my speed 5 MPH - 10 MPH above the speed limit. Streets like FM1960 with a lot of traffic and left turners I always keep the speed limit and flash my high-beams if I see a car ready to turn left.

Be always aware of your surroundings people! Ride safe.
