yeah, and sometimes they say it when bikes are going a LOT faster than the speed limit and because of it they misjudge the approach speed.

It gets on my nerves, when people/cops/news find ANY way to make the seriously injured or possibly dead biker at fault when a car PULLS OUT in front of them. Bottom line, a car pulled out into oncoming traffic, irregardless to whether or not the oncoming was speeding that dumb a$$ shoulda took more caution in crossing 3-4 lns of traffic. If it was a car that hit the cager, speed would not even be in the discussion, or the cager coulda paid a costly mistake for what appeared to be HIS/HER impatient mistake.

Westheimer SUCKS, all the cagers take CRAZY chances to get out of driveways/side streets because traffic is coming continously and fast. People are NEVER patient enough to wait for clearance, and let's not even talk about the afternoon sun, which causes sudden blindness when it shines in the right direction. I typically make it a point to avoid that street when ever I'm on the bike.

Prayers sent for the fallen.

Me and my buddy almost ran into some stupid today when she pulled out of a parking lot and literally stopped in the middle of the road . We almost hit her. As soon as we passed her I flipped her off and shook my head in disbelief of how stupid people can be, Im just glad that today wasnt the day I went down like that

This is why I hate westheimer.

Prayers for the riders..!!!

Westheimer is one the worst streets here in Houston. Do not even be around there in the morning rush hour. Is bad...!!! Also HWY-6, too many cagers turning left in front of you.

Not good news:



Motorcyclist dies after collision with car
By ANITA HASSAN Copyright 2009 Houston Chronicle
June 7, 2009, 11:07PM
One motorcyclist is dead and another was injured after they crashed into a car while allegedly racing down a west Houston street this afternoon, authorities said.

Investigators learned two Suzuki motorcycles were spotted traveling above the speed limit west in the 9600 block of Westheimer at high speeds around 3:54 p.m.

As a tan Chrysler Concorde was leaving a Phillips 66 gas station and attempting to get into the left turn lane, both motorcycles crashed into the left side of the car, authorities said.

Both motorcyclists were taken to Ben Taub General Hospital, where one of them died.

The Harris County District's Attorney Office has accepted racing charges in the case.

No further information was immediately available.

Okay people... Here is the real story of what happened. The two bikes where on westheimer drag racing each other and where traveling at high speeds. The car did not see the bikes and the bikes struck the vehicle.
I am at ben taub now because I have to sit on the riders. One of them is in critical condition and does not look good. The other is doing good with some broken bones and other issues but is expected to make a recovery. He is also facing criminal charges hence why I am having to stay with him at the hospital. Neither one of these guys where wearing helmets...

So before candy and everyone else jumps to a conclusion that they know nothing about kno this...it was the motorcyclist fault.

So send your prayers to the fallen riders...because of their actions, one of them
May not make it through the night...very very sad

Wow... thanks for the update Paul.

So the drag racing, was that according to witnesses or did the rider confess?
I'm sure they were definitely going above limit, but just curious as to how it was verified they were racing.
