Rider Down and Missing, kind of

So yesterday I am running up 244 (past Yankees) when I top a hill and there is a downed Vulcan in the middle of the freakin road at the bottom of a little hill. I slamm on the brakes and pull off avoiding the tank. I didn't see any people or movement so I am expecting to find a dead rider or seriously jacked up one in the high weeds. Bike was still on and fuel and fluids. He/She left a 186' skid mark before downing the bike. You could see where the person rolled through the grass, yet no trace of the rider.

As I am dialing 911 a Honda Civic screams back up. apparently the Vulcan rider slammed into the civic then hit the ground by the time the Civic turned around and I got there, within a few seconds (?) rider was MIA...

They were still searching in pastures for him/her when I bailed.. Bike was not stolen (Least till whomever got home to make the call) so cops figured they were drunk or wanted, They were just worried that he possibly could be in dire need of medical attention and didn't want them dying in a cow pasture.

Alll in all a crappy end to a f'd riding day.. which started early that morning with a Minivan ping ponging (out of control skid) all over a 2 lane highway and me seeing my life pass before my eyes. Cause the fat C__nts minivan came way too close for comfort while sliding backwards.

I caged it today..
