Rider down on 610N

I saw a group of riders on my way to the Galleria today, and saw one of them do what looked like to be a wheelie, then he just landed wrong and crashed. Smoke and dirt just flew down the lane, but he seemed to be okay, because he was standing up. Good thing traffic stopped in time, because it looked like a moving truck was right behind him. This was about at 5:45PM near the Woodway/Memorial exit on 610N.

Whoever you are, I hope you're alright.

If this idiot claims it on his insurance it'll be one more checkmark that raises our rates

If emergency services responded that put a needless toll on them

, if I was caught in a traffic jam caused by a stupid stunt like this I would be !

I totally agree with you. It was just funny reading the first post saying, "whoever you are, I hope your ok"..then you come in with "whoever you are... but a totally different angle"

my bad it was just funny looking at the contrast. I can honestly say we are concerned about Rider safety and health in instances like these. You have a good point, and you're right, it wasn't funny. It was just the order of the posts.

I see your point. The contrast is indeed funny.

I still need to voice my opinion about this every now and then though.
