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.

Last time I ran up 276, I found two wreck sites. One was a lot of smashed Hayabusa bodywork laying by a rail, and the other, I couldn't tell what did it, but it had dead-ended a guard rail and left a good little oil slick in a half-blind corner that that I somehow tippy-toed around at a pretty good clip...
Nobody had even TRIED to clean it up...

Oops sorry. Kinda hard to follow this thread when it goes momentarily "viral."

Pic of "local" in action. I do not know when it was taken but colors look correct for it being a recent picture.

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.

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.
As a supplement to the other evidence at the scene, those photos are incriminating. No extreme negligence though (unless you want to count ooogling at the camera), it looks like he set up for a bad turn, panicked, froze and kablooey. He's paid the price though-- I don't think he got up and brushed himself off. The insurance will pay the claim cause that is what it is for, but the rider may become insurance-toxic.

Is it any wonder REALLY why we have disdain for the HD crowd? How fast were you going pacing the idiots when the dude ran wide? 20mph?



Amazing....

They just wanted to see how it off roaded. They did keep it upright. Maybe the beginnings of their dual sport career?

Amazing....

They were going very veryyyyyyy slow. Our group pulled over multiple times to let them gain distance since they didnt seem to want to let us pass (even after some sportbikers behind us got pissed off and made very unsafe passes).

You cant see it from the videos but the Harley rider was unable to properly use his brakes because his feet were peddling the ground when he hit the rocks...lucky he didnt get them underneath the flooorboards and chopped off. Also the guy behind him target fixated and almost joined his buddy.

Well, that's one way to get them to pull over.

+1

See riders do it in front of me around here from time to time, fortunately not with those results, but could have been.

I also agree that once it got out of hand there was target fixation all the way in.

Yeah... saw all that. I"m amazed. I shouldn't be, but I am. I have zero respect or concern for idiots with no skills on 800 lb bikes. If you ride, LEARN to ride. Or crash. Your call.

Sad.. true.
