yesterday was a bad one for riders in Houston

We had a woman we took to Memorial Herman Downtown yesterday and while getting her transferred the charge nurse told us they had 5 riders come in less than 3 hours. All were in bad shape. She was asking if there was some sort of event going on as that was an unusually high number to see all at once.

Made me glad i was working in the hood yesterday, I am not sure I am ready to go on a motorcycle crash call yet.

Yeah I suspect that we are going to see more crashes before they drop off as people get their bikes back out after putting em away for a few months.

yesterday afternoon was pretty amazing, it was a bummer to ride in the back of an ambulance all day...if i had not been at work i would have been riding...

+1 what MudBug said. Plus cold roads may play a part as well.

nah we were just transporting her, she was not a rider, just a very old lady with lots of problems. I was out working in between 5th Ward and IAH, Homestead Rd, Aldine Bender, Aldine Westfield....barely saw a bike during the 16 hour shift.

kind of scary to be honest I bet that the guys I heard about in the ER yesterday were guys who do not ride often, and their skills were rusty so they got into trouble a lot easier.

!!!! Sorry to hear that.

I just found out Friday that I lost a kid I always spoke to at the drag track back on Tuesday. He was hit by a car who fled the scene.

i try too watch out for bikes when in my cage..some days i can see them ahead and some mornings im just really slow
i try to learn what a cager see on the road when a bike is near so if i see something not right or something that could be trouble i would try to rememebr not to be in that scenerio...most common is riding in blind spots and besides moving traffic..

Practically have to have a sixth sense out there, I just keep it in a low gear and the revs up to make sure people hear me. Also just watch out for the fu(king soccer moms on cell phones. Careful out there!

just happen to have a near side swipe coming on 59 south
even after paying attention and looking out at all the potential scenerarios i manage not to see the mini van changing lane over to the right to my lane. i beleive i was in her blind spot, i was riding in the middle of the lane, about in the mid length of her mini van
as soon as she move the front tire over to my lane, you just got to speed up and away...she saw me and moved back.
its just another morning in h-town streets and freeways

Sadly,.... I bet you, she like most folks, still didnt even realize that you were there from the start....she probably thought you just came whizzing by and almost caused the side swipe. And they wonder why we speed to get away from their dumb-a$$e$ on the cell-phones.

I hope i never have to witness and chase down a fleeing cager that caused an accident while in my truck.....i will end up on the news, not in the hospital. I'm tired of fleeing cagers!

i guess it was just my day to test me just i had the same thing happen again on my way home. lady on a suv on the third lane, moves over to the second lane, im already checking her out, and then she starts the blinker and right away tries to move over to the first lane where i am at. so i did the same action, speed up and away and she saw me and moved back. her front tire was already on the white line so obviously did not see me. the difference was i was i no one's blind spot until she and the suv move over and put me right into a blind spot and then seconds later tries to move over

I just bought a new Silverado and someone nearly sideswiped me moving over 2 lanes of traffic. I just laid on the horn and she got nearly half way into my lane with my window next to hers before she realized.

The dumbass drivers in houston dont even notice trucks 2x the size of their cars much less the motorcycles.
