Who gives a t how fast you can take a turn on the street? All that matters is that there should be no competition or ego based riding on public roads... go to a trackday and be prepared to be humbled. :notworthy

in this guy's case though - almost crackin his head open... c'mon man... he's obviously riding beyond his limits... not to mention how fricken dangerous it is to be speeding on public roads in the first place...

i just don't wanna see peeps end up in the hospital or worse check out like that...

take that shyt to the track - live longer, get fewer tickets and get some skills while you're at it... just a better solution - if you ask me... :dontknow:

I just got off the phone with josh.. he was doing ok, they took the tube out of his chest today. They had him eating out of a tube. He was supposed to go home today, but when he was trying to eat food on his own, none is the muscles on the right side of his face were working... he said he cant really blink or anything. So now they are doing more catscans of his head to make sure its nothing more then just some nerve damage, which will heal in time...

i feel so bad for this kid... my heart goes out.


there should be some rule when riding with us that newbs should really stay behind, and mabye have a "designated" rider to ride with them...or at least someone to watch them and make sure they are not going "outside" their capabilities

i would just hate to see this happen again

Everytime i rode with the HSN crew.
They always pick one person to be the sweeper. Regardless that person stay in the back of the pack. That takes the guessing game out.

We need to start doing that.

While it's a good idea, that would never work because too many people have egos that have to be stroked... granted, I feel sorry for the guy, but he made the decision to ride like that and it's a shame that he has to go through this. I wish him the best of recoveries.

The best rule would be that everyone rides with some spec of responsibility not only for themselves but for others on the road...

Yeah, that was me most of the times... the sweeper basically stays at the back. Watches the noobs, gives advice at the breaks and basically is the guardian of the group. Just makes sure everyone comes though the turns ok.

When I start riding with you all this winter I'll be riding sweep...

we still do that when we ride. nobody has gone out to ride and NO, riding at night at PP is not considered "riding". more like cruising
