Well, I wish I had taken some more pictures of the bike but the forks looked fine, the radiator and oil cooler were untouched as well as the side fairings.I am sure it hit something but it didn't hit it with the force you would see at tripple digit speeds as were discussed in the police file. I think that he may have tucked the front before it impacted anything. You know in a panic braking sense. But it is all pure speculation on my part.

+1... Riding a bike has always been dangerous... if you add 150 mph to the equation + a off person even worse... Think before you do this... instead call one of us and lets go have a few beers... then we can call a cab

So very sad. My condolences to his family. When I wrecked my ZX a few years ago I was in a bad mood at the time in which I used poor judgement causing my wreck. Thanks to that I'm still here. Poor Patrick doesn't get a second chance. I hope others learn from this and make a commitment to themselves not to ride if they're mad, upset, depressed, etc. Hopefully this will help others make right choices when they decide to ride.

Hate to burst your bubble, but Houston is the worst city I have ever ridden a motorcycle in. I have lived in 8+ major metropolis' that I can think of off the top of my head and this is by faaaaar the worst to ride in. The drivers are by far the worst per capita period.
I am not saying riding over the speed limit is approved by me, but it happens, but lets not get all uppity about the quality of drivers in HTown. Puuulease.

no matter where you go will happen. There's some things in life you can control and some you can't. It's up to you, THE RIDER, how you wanna dictate the things can be controlled. You could be riding on a stretch of road by yourself and feel safe but then you hit a bump and fly off and die. You have no one to blame but urself. RIP to Patrick and his family. It's not Houston, it's the riders. We just gotta make better judgements/decisions

R.I.P.


Whether motorcycle accidents are primarily because of negligence on the rider or the other driver's can be discussed in another thread.
