There are some really bad drivers in Houston. I try avoid 45, 59, and 610 as much as I can.

I'm more interested if you have any restaurant recommendations. I'm a little tired of Mexican and BBQ.

Another fcking HIT and RUN? Fcking bullshit

We as riders need to find out how to lobby for tougher laws on Hit and Runs. Can someone chime in on how or who to contact about tougher laws?

Yeah, Iíve been riding in this town for 17 years but I can never remember it being this bad. There are more drivers than ever and it appears the standard for getting a license (if they even have a license) has taken a nose dive. I would just encourage anyone who is new on two wheels to be very honest about your abilities and all of us regardless of ability to keep our heads on a swivel.

get well soon to the fallen driver,

the newcastle exit is where i exit to go to work and its not a very friendly. you have traffic coming into the freeway and your exit is right after their entrance plus you have sort of a middle lane that builds up with traffic from the 610 north backing up into the exit lane. so some days you get a scenario where you trying to exit and traffic to your right coming over to your lane plus your running out of room with the risk of running into someone in front of you

Yeah I drive this route every day as well. Even going 610N or 610S here is a ****ing nightmare with that traffic entering from the feeder and 59 backing up.

I'd say going 610N is REALLY dangerous at this juncture because the 610N lane fills up, and then people from the 2 lanes that go 610S stop and try to merge in at the last minute.

I ****ing hate that part of my drive.

Once you exit newcastle on the right off 59 southbound its a pretty sharp decline and comes almost instantly on a stoplight straight off the highway. If you take a left on Newcastle its one of the worst paved streets in Houston.

If someone took that exit too fast anything over 70mph there would not be enough time to brake and stop and it might be a red with cars turning. Thats probably what happened.

This is the light almost seconds after you exit and as you can see there are cars turning onto confoming traffic. You could also be waiting stopped at the light and someone decides to run the light or can't stop in time and plows right into you. I have also seen this come close before. If youre at this light the bottom line is to watch your rear view mirror and sit in gear. 3298664753 07fb20f930 o

yep...the exit is like
watch out to your right
watch out in front
move over quickly now
ohh hit the brakes for red light

sometimes i just cross over the white solid lines and be as far as off the road to the right when exiting...some of those days. but it really gets cool when right after the red light you get a nice 2 lane wide open and so i just wot all the way till the curb that goes to Richmond

and the way back on 59 north crossing the three lanes that head to 610 north and south...now thats a rush...most times i just gun it when i see a opening. this is where moving faster than traffic is safer than just riding along them because everyone is just x crossing to get over...worst lanes in houston

Yep I always watch my back both ways. I think going 59 S is much safer. The 59N to take 610 to Bellaire has nothing but idiots merging in the last second. The sneaky ones that try to act like they are going straight then zoom in at the last second are the most dangerous. I prefer the a-holes that just sit and wait in the 59 lane with their blinker. At least they are more careful and less chance of hitting you.

i passed by it and i believe it was a blue r6 (06-up) and they bike was near the middle lanes right before 610 exit.... bike parts were scattered everywhere and it seemed that the front end was separate from the bike.... prayers sent out to the rider....

Gotya. I was in the far right lane and I was not able to see it very well.

Does anyone know if it was someone on MH?
