Yes. They cover track incidents, as long as it was not a timed event.

I don't think riding a sportbike vs a cruiser should determine how much, or if, you should weave. Even riding responsibly around this town is dangerous enough.

I wouldnt condone it, but IMO weaving through traffic on lighter, better handling, quicker accerating, better braking sport bike CAN be safer than doing the same thing on a fatboy (if kept at reasonable speeds and distances). But what do I know, I don't even have a sport bike. :confused1

RIP brother...

There was a couple groups out there last night.

First off there were the guys for the HPD run. A lot of people that did not know one another riding together as a group. 30+ bikes on the seawall with a majority of sportbikes (maybe 5 cruisers). Not everyone was wearing gear.

Secondly there was quite a few groups of sportbike riders on the Island. Some knew one another but more along the lines of acquaintances.

Thirdly there was a group of cruiser guys/gals out at the Spot. Apparantly it was some deal they had as I overheard them talking to one another about making it to the next get-together as they were introducing one another. Most were drinking and of course no gear.

I went over the causeway about an hour before the accident. There was one large geoup of bikes ahead of me from the HPD event. I took Harborside instead of sitting in traffic. I tried to catch 'em but they were riding pretty quickly, so I just hung back and enjoyed the ride. One thing though all the traffic behind them was weaving and trying their best to keep up to them.

If anyone gonna go fast and weave through traffic, it is best done on a lighter and more agile bikes. Cruiser are not weave friendly.

I wouldn't be so proud thinking that I could drag pipes and pegs. It is easy to do that but it is not safe. One of these days, it will more than pipes and pegs he will be dragging.

These stats were from '04. So at that rate 40+ could be the highest by now. :eh:

I agree with that.

Also, younger people tend to take more chances. Most have no spouse and kids to worry about. Driving experience could have something to do with it too. Someone who has been driving for 10 years can probably predict traffic and road conditions better than a new driver/rider.

ok this was my friends family memeber and he tried to regester to the site but said he was having problems doing so this is what he has to say

Ok. Just to get the story straight. Charles or chuck is what I knew him by left galveston that evening with 2 other riders, his brother, and a good biker friend. His brother got off ahead of them somehow being as how there was traffic on the causeway, and then he got split from the other rider he was with also. From the police reports he was traveling at a high rate of speed, and knowing him personally he did ride fast occasionally, and he never wore a helmet, and now im kicking myself in the for never telling him to. It is doubtful that he was weaving in and out of traffic, but either way he did clip the rear end of a jeep and lost his life. These bikers have a rule that they always let each other know when they get home, after not getting and answers or phone call from charles hsi brother drove out there in his truck and walked up the causeway beause of traffic and just so happened his instict was right and it was a bike accident that turned out to be his brother. And now for the galveston county paper that printed this story, they are worthless, disrespectful pieces of imo...this paper was printed before his wife...my aunt was ever contacted by any authorites about her husbands fatal accident, which is so un ethical. But to say the least he died doing what he loved and he felt no pain which I am so glad for.

sad...sad

bobbin and weaving, ridin fast, without headgear...i'm guilty of this as well...
but you have to know your limitations and realize alot of people will turn in your lane, hit their brakes, open their doors, etc..claimin they didn't see u..."u were going to fast" is what they will always say

90% of the time I ride helmet and jacket but cause of the nice days we've been havin, its been shorts and a tank top, no helmet, no speeding...

It makes no diff...now i'm in gear 24/7 no matter what and I ride with whoever is down...that's why I bought this !

RIP....chuck!!

Thats cause it seems to be cool among the older crowd to drink and ride...

Not saying this guy was drunk but he chose to ride like he was so that happens. His friends still suck though from what the first post says!

R.I.P. though either way. Even though people bring it on themselves, it still sucks to hear another rider lost his life (his fault or not).
