    Just passed a very serious wreck between a Transport Truck and motorcycle on I40 east bound near exit 188. Could not see the kind of bike but spotted an ADV sticker on the bike and helmet. I hope whoever it is, is okay but having a Paramedic past can say it did not look good.

    Sounds bad.

    We have a couple of regulars that have the ability to go on middle-of-the-week rides. I know someone that was heading that general direction, but I did not think he was departing until the weekend.

    No idea on the color of the bike?

    Fingers crossed.

    Hmmm...I'm out that way in Bellevue. Don't know of any inmates further west though.


    Hope it's not too bad.

    Could not tell a thing besides that it was a bike, couldn't even tell style excet to say that the tires didn't look like knobbies. PD reporting it as fatal now.

    Man, I hate that.



    Don't know of anyone with an ADV sticker on their helmet but I assume he is or was an inmate here.

    Oh gosh......tragic news :cry

    I don't think I know any ADV guys that ride a GSX.

    My God bless his soul.

    I can't think of anyone.....the only blue bike we have in our local group is a wee & we have already checked on him & have the thumbs up that he is OK.

    TSP just called me back, the rider had no id and wanted to know if I knew the guy because of the ADV sticker I mentioned. They did confirm there was an ADV sticker on the helmet but it looks old.

    The only person I know on ADV with a blue GSX is Dranrab Luap. But he sold that bike a while back and he lives on the MS coast. It was blue and white with saddlebags, though. I guess it *could* be the person he sold it to...

    Redman, since you know the details, why don't you start a thread in Inmates? It could be an ADVer just passing through.
