Natural Selection and poor taste in mods

On my way home from the track with Tristan and we saw a nasty one bike accident on Hwy 146 at FM 2094. We had seen a red Harley and a small Ford truck pulling out of Mother's Bar and Grill jsut south of Kemah. We got to the light at 2094 and were sitting in the left turn lane when the red Harley comes in pretty hot. As usual in Kemah, Boardwalk trafffic means drivers usually get stuck IN the intersection between lights. The guy had the rear brake locked as he came by us into the intersection. I had time from when I saw him in the mirrors to tell Tristan to watch this, it's not gonna be pretty.
So the rear is locked, he never appeared to touch the front and was trying to steer it between the two lanes of cars. Almost only counts in....
but he almost had it when the left bar hit the back of a chevy blazer and he made a very quick left into the right rear quarter panel. And the Blazer left!!!
I pulled my truck and trailer across the interscetion to spot morth bound traffic while calling 911 and getting to the guy. First thing I notice is that I can see his teeth throuogh his left cheek. He's trying to get up and I 'm trying to get him to lay down, so the flap will go back up. I'm asking him to look at me and I must have been a million miles away cause he couldn't focus. His melon was saved by his new windsheild that spread the rest of the impact across his face.
Another guy shows up right as the police show and we pick up the bike and get it out of the street and to the sidewalk. From the evidence, when he hit the Blazer and went forward the custon billet left mirror went through his cheek. GGGGNarly. No helmet of course, just a bandana and a leather vest. Lots of rash on the wrists hands and elbows. His buddy form the Ford ranger wsa stagering around the whole time...."man.....dude.....I knew I should have rode the bike". He was very drunk too. Drunk enough to admit to strangers he was drunk. I told him to sit tight, ran Tristan home, dumped the trailer and got a ramp. I returned not less than five minutes later and everything is gone but the drunk buddy (" I always ride drunk") with the broken bike. We get it loaded and he is grateful, and I ask him to consider how lucky his friend is, and the bike is not all that bad. I wonder if either one will learn from it?
Where ever you ended up tonight fella, I hope you aren't too bad off. I also wish you well, and hope you will learn from you luck. Maybe next time we could go with a helmet, a jacket, gloves, and leave the alcohol. One of foour would be an improvement. I also thank you for showing my kid first hand the dangers of alcohol and a motor vehicle. We had a great talk about it on the way home. I was pleased to hear my kid say he noticed I dont drink.

good on you for lending a hand and some good advise.
Unfortunately nothing will likely change. Some people just can't enjoy themselves if their not drunk and acting a fool.

Well the very FIRST thing he should not have done is to drive drunk... no matter if your in a cage,bike,plane,boat. Even walking drunk is bad... add all the other stuff and it only augments your death wish...
