cruiser gets plowed by corvette at deals gap

While he is the one who decided to wave at the camera ad take his concentration away from the road ahead like a dunce, I do hope he is ok.

Its a gallery, and you have to click through the pics one by one, you won't be disappointed...

And that is why I rarely visited the Dragon when I lived in the area. Too high of a concentration of dumb shits on that road for me.

Yay just have to shake ya head when you see him realise he can't turn and decides to aim for the car instead. I mean, he sure as hell focused on it like a demon!

Who said cruiser riders don't wave?

Jeff broke his neck, back, lacerated liver, failed kidneys, knocked 4 teeth out and sliced his lip. He has major skull factures. He will have.reconstruction surgery later."

That sucks about Jeff, but I'm going to take a wild guess and say he wasn't ATGATT, judging by the missing teeth and cut lip.

It had to be done...



So it turns out that the guy who crashed afterward and broke his neck, back, etc... crashed there last year as well when his rear wheel broke loose and he crashed into a parked car. Had to be life-flighted out then too. I had to read through the thread to make sure his buddy wasn't just misremembering accidents or something, but I guess he wasn't because:

#2 "Damn.

Same fella as [ame="http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=296724"]here[/ame]?

Did he crash twice there in two years?"

#1 "Ya that was on a motard."


I do hope he's ok and don't want to put any bad karma out there, but who wants to lay down odds that he will be back there next year and try to beat the Dragon again?
