I was about 3 minutes behind the Miata, motorcycle wreck.
I think the motorcycle and rider went over the car.
Looked like right side windshield took a huge hit.

Honda Rune... or is it a Ruined Valkyrie?



Stylish bike, no idea how it goes. Guess it's the Japanese version of a Dong?

We lost a friend last year in NC. If I understand correctly the deceased are not allowed to leave the state until an autopsy is performed. That might explain why he didn't go to Knoxville.

TrashCan,
You talking about the Miata/bike wreck on the Cherohala or the one on the Dragon? Seems there were two.

I was there last year and more miatas than you could shake a stick at. Convention? Never saw one cross the yellow. What's the case here?
