I didn't see any pics of the second guy that went down, all the pics are of the first one.

Photogs will most likely not post them as he is a "local"

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

I don't think so as the thread from the TN board indicated something to the effect of thank god there were two riders stopped nearby that witnessed it or its possible no one would have known he went over the edge.

Damn! The flying body in pic 19! Should have concentrated on the road, not the photog.Anyone know if he was ok?

Also, how do you all manage to show the pics in the thread?

I wonder what it takes to replace the airbag in a 'Vette.

Don't think it went off.

Regarding the cruiser guy smashing into the Vette...

What do you think the cruiser guy's insurance company is going to do when they see those pictures? Deny the claim? Drop his ass? Has anyone ever thought about how riding on a road heavily populated by photographers is just leaving tons of evidence about your shitty/dangerous/ignorant riding when applicable?

That particular series of photos is so detailed and thorough I think it would be impossible for anyone to argue that the wreck was anyone's fault other than the guy on the cruiser...

Makes a guy wonder.

Sounds like he got pretty fucked up too. A lot of his facial injuries could have been prevented with a full face helmet, but that wouldn't have helped the spine injuries.

+1 on being pissed off if I were the driver of the Corvette. I guess we can be thankful that he didn't head on into another motorcycle.

yeahhh, went back and looked. The guy didn't come anywhere close to hitting it though... So, bump my $10K damage estimate to $12K.

Two different people. Slayer/touron crash is pictured. The other guy (local) was most assuredly in full leather complete with a full back protector and a full face helmet, hell, I think he usually wears a chest protector too. I won't (can't) go into full details on the second crash as I wasn't there. Too many people already doing the Internet crime scene investigation thing.
