Saw this. I was shook up. So glad to hear he was speaking. I thought he was dead. Ugh. Keep us updated on his condition. Praying.

7 WOW...that honda really took a whack... January 15, 2014 at 2:45 PM

can’t see motorcycle damage, but it’s gotta be bad. Rider must have gotten launched about a hundred feet.

I bet the car didn’t see the Biker and turned/pulled in front of him…

I was driving by just shortly after it happened. Very nasty accident. I too was shook up over it. I saw the paramedics working on the guy on the ground, blood. I hope everyone is okay.

I agree with pucky

11 KC January 15, 2014 at 5:07 PM

At wow… Actually he hit the ground after impact. Didn’t fly. Not sure how that happened, but he ended up on the ground right next to his bike. I couldn’t figure it out cuz I would assumed he woulda flown off pretty far. Anyone know his condition? Been thinking about it all day.

He cut me off in traffic the other day than flipped me off. Only reason I remember it was him because of the bumber sticker… as a fellow mc rider I hope he fully recovers

Thats a BIG dent!!

Too many people in too much of a hurry.

Relax.

Please slow down.

You will still get there faster than if you have an accident.

That’s not a motorcycle it looks like a Honda. :-)

16 Skippy January 15, 2014 at 7:23 PM

By the looks of the car, the driver must have cut in front of the biker. We’re really not that hard to see, people. Open your eyes and wait until we pass by.

17 white boy January 15, 2014 at 11:21 PM

Ride a harley people don’t need to see you they will hear/feel you coming

18 biggus thinkus January 16, 2014 at 1:07 AM

man, my buddy rides. big guy, hard to miss, but then, he’s been wiped out by people doing stupid ‘stuff’ outside his control.
dang. as for loud pipes, do they really work when you’re behind someone and your exhaust isn’t heard yet from 200yds away?
just look, take the time folks, if you’re that far behind, leave 5min earlier
it aint worth it.

Even on a loud hog, idiots don’t know how to drive or be aware of bikers. Smh. Get a clue. I can’t believe how people drive sometimes around motorcycles! Get a clue!!!!!

Terrible thing–lost my baby that way.

21 Mac January 16, 2014 at 10:20 AM

I hope this rider ends up being OK.

But i don`t know about you guys.
But i don`t want to drive around a bike with loud pipes.
The reason i ride is to relax, and having loud a$$ pipes is not relaxing to me.
Now maybe as a teenager it was cool.
But not now a days.

But then i have been a sissy lately.
Haven`t been on my bike since before Thanksgiving.

I have a friend with a Honda and he says it’s as good as any Harley, it vibrates, leaks oil and is hard to start. :-)

23 Daniel January 23, 2014 at 12:55 PM

24 Daniel January 23, 2014 at 12:56 PM
