Cycle event/motorcycle fatality.

http://m.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/...-1227243414404

I hope the sidecar rider is ok, traumatic thing to happen

Hopefully the cyclist killed is no one I know.

One of my workmates is working on this event today, I've messaged our team leader suggesting he touch base to make sure our bloke is ok.

The psychological impact of seeing/being involved in a fatality (even if not directly hands on) will have an impact on him.

Condolences to the family and friends of the cyclist.

RIP to the rider.










Serious question now…

Do we really need Threads like this in the Oz Forum?

If the person is known to the ADVRider community then no worries but….

Thoughts?

I have already expressed my concerns to a mod
My feeling is that there is already an appropriate forum, and thats Face Plant but even this doesnt fit, as it is supposed to be an ADV member,or family. Its all sad and tragic and all the rest, but personally, I dont want to see these threads. I know I dont have to open them, and I dont, but no need to just grab random acidents out of the news, we all know motorcytcling is dangerous, I've lost friends to it
Maybe an Aussie Face Plant?

Sorry, it specifically relates to me as an inmate... we provide a support vehicle and driver for this event every year, this year one of the other drivers where I work was rostered to drive today.

I put it in the Australian section because it is relevant to Australia.

The motorcyclist (inmate or not, unknown at this stage) was not at fault, nor seriously injured..... but the mental trauma will be immense.

Move it if you wish, or PM me and I will delete the thread entirely.

I posted this to inform, not offend.... many of us here are local the The Hills Shire and surrounding areas, and as such we are aware of this event every year.
