Did anyone hear about the rider that got killed-45 north/almeda

I think a guy died on Sat. they said he was on a cruiser and got cut off exiting 45 north at almeda and ran into one of the gates at the championship hundai and skipped over a couple of cars and then knocked a light pole down when his body hit it. Please pray for the riders family and if you have any information let us know.

Must of been a really bad weekend..... 3 accidents and 3 fatalities

man was thrown off his motorcycle and killed after he lost control of the bike in southeast Houston on Saturday morning, authorities said.

The driver of a red Yamaha motorcycle was traveling north in the 12200 block of the Gulf Freeway around 10:10 a.m. when he hit a curb, authorities said.

He then struck a light pole and was thrown from the bike onto the concrete, authorities said. The impact of the crash caused the light pole to fall.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene and his identity is pending an autopsy by the Harris County Medical Examiner's Office.



Police are investigating the death of man after he lost control of his motorcycle on a southwest Houston roadway late Friday night, authorities said.


Robert Ohnesorge, 39, was operating a black Honda CBR motorcycle and traveling north in the 5500 block of South Shepherd around 11:40 p.m. when he lost control of the bike and struck an electric pole, authorities said.

He was taken to Ben Taub General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.


One person is dead after two-motorcycle crash Saturday in Galveston, officials with the Texas City Department of Public Safety said.

The accident occurred on 1741 Highway 87, just outside Crystal Beach. Police said they received the call about 5 p.m.

No further information was immediately available.

I think to many people are just going out and buying bikes to save on gas and not really taking the time to learn how to ride correctly, its sad, two out of those three were from loss of control.

Its dangerous no matter where you ride.

Many ride in their comfortable areas whether commuting short distances or simply not leaving their area when they are out with friends. They could have years under their belt riding like this but the moment they go on a ride w curvy, blind corners they find themselves off track and go off.

So fundamentals and riding w experienced riders that ride w your limits and not over them is very important. Learn from the mistakes of others and always remember self preservation.

I couldn't agree more. I know i haven't been riding long but i know and have my limits. I wonder how long its gonna take before Authorities start doing something about this. Too many accidents on motorcycles goin on.



hmm, i didn't notice that they were both RED YAMAHA's in both topics.

We are one of the only countries on the planet that does not have a size limits on what can be ridden as a new rider. We also have rider tests that DO NOTHING to prove you can ride. Case in point-I took a Oklahoma riding test, and the officer looked at my riding history and concluded that I did not need to do a riding test. What if I lied? (I didn't-I have held a CMRA-CRRC license for 3 decades) Even if you take the test, all it proves is that you can make a 4 block square with out falling down, or failing to stop at the stop signs, or use turn signals, ect. Does this prove you can ride--I think not.

I'm pretty the sure the guy on the cruiser mentioned in the original post is this guy: http://www.legacy.com/houstonchronic...onId=114905989

He was a nurse at MD Anderson's Bone Marrow Transplant floor...my wife's coworker.

Wow I knew this guy years back in the 80's! I worked with him @ Phillips 66, he was an electrician! He tried to teach me how to play the drums a few times! I didn't even know he rode!

So Sad to hear of the news! I have not heard from him or seen him since 1990! RIP Sid, you were an awesome person!

Prayers go out to you & your family & loved ones!
