2 bikers down on Tuesday

1 dies off of 149 racing with an R1 and a Busa, couldnt make out the make of the wrecked bike, all i could make out was the FORKS. Said the guy turned in too fast clipped the front of an SUV tore off the left front fender and the Wheel, front tire also missing from the bike.
Investigators tell us the victim was the son of a Harris County precinct four deputy constable.
http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?se...cal&id=3550199


this morning on Fox they show an older F3 Red and White with green and purple on it, crashed somewhere off of 45 rider lives and seems to be ok for now,

why cant people just show some respect for the machines that we ride? If people would have respect far less accidents would happen, some of these KIDS think they are invincible on these machines.. And you'd think after hearing about all this and seeing it on the news that this would slow down and people would think before they do stupid things to hurt themselves.

Its not like she will ride it anyways...People just want things to have them....a sportbike should not be one of them...One when they do ride them they wreck them....Two well they should not be on them in the first place...If you can not fully do every movement with your bike...I.E. backing it up or even manuevering it....You should not have the bike...

How long did it take you to get over it?

another reason why I avoid 149 except early spring...3090 too. I've seen more wrecked bikes (and more police) on 149 than anywhere in greater houston area.

I've seen guys running at racer's road with their friends curbside with stopwatches taking "lap times". unbelievable.

I have a very close business relation ship with a guy who owns a funeral home...

I asked him one day "how business?"

He replied "Its looking up. But, in my business, ITS ALWAYS LOOKING UP!"

I nearly died laughing.
