Re: rider killed sat. night

Are you talking about the one in the Woodlands?
We were coming back from dinner and saw the bike on the feeder and the rider having the sheet put over him. Appeared to be a ZX7.

Re: rider killed sat. night

What I saw happened on the 45 feeder right by the Woodlands mall. Orange bike but definitely a ZX7, can't mistake those cat eye headlights. Didn't see another bike but it could have been over to the side. The accident site was pretty chaotic with all of the police, fire trucks, ambulances and tow trucks.
Bike definitely hit the car. It's a shame.

Re: rider killed sat. night

couldve been a zx7, didnt see anything but orange and silver colors,, and two pcs of the bike,, sad, but thats what happens when you do it in the wrong place.. should always take it to the strips boys,... be safe . no one is invincible. we all have our days when we think nothing can happen. i'm glad those days are gone for me,,

Re: rider killed sat. night

I maybe out of place saying this, but if they were racing... Then everyone knows that they werent just doing about 65 down the freeway. I know that people freakout when something like this happens. But the other dude on the motorcycle, kept going and never stopped or came back. That in my eyes is not cool. We all my not know each other, and we may not all talk to each other if we are all out at Starbucks or out on 1960. But what I cant seem to comprehend is how someone could leave another motorcyclist lying there dead on the freeway.
