I didn't see the accident BUT we were getting gas when the flatbed stopped so we went over to look. not sure who hit him but the bike i think was an 03 heritage silver & blue...the driver said that the motorcycle was sitting in traffic (or at the redlights not sure exactly) and someone rammed them in the tail which caused the driver to lay the bike over. shoved the rear fender up pretty bad, tore off the right saddlebag, scratched the left saddlebag, scratched up some of the chrome (mostly pass floorboards & crash bars) on the left side, busted the windshield...pretty tore up to just be sitting still so someone hit them hard. we were told that the guy just had some bad road rash...

This time of the year lots of middle aged "Harley Men Wanna-Be's)run out and buy a hog to make up for their lost "childhoods". And someone usually ends up deador about dead because of inexperience.

It is sad when individuals think that makes them more os a "man".

I saw some man and woman coming from the YMCA and entering the US 23 onramp yesterday. He was swerving left and right trying to get control, she was on a high-rise back seat, and had him in a white-knuckle grip around the neck; looked like an accident waiting to happen. That had the makins of a short ride to the grave.

Hello, Wait. I thought the last post just said the bike was stopped in traffic and was rear ended. How is that the bikers fault. Just wishin you had one I guess so that makes you want to talk about those who do.

I'm not sayin anything was anybody's fault. Just that there are many weekend riders who are a danger to themselves, and this type of weather and this time of season brings them out. I hope no one gets hurt, but it will probably happen.

As for me,been there done that, there are many people on the road who have no respect for cyclists, others who do have respect but have vision problems and shouldn't be driving. I nearly became a victim of those problems and sold my bike while I was still alive and able. No, I never had a harley, couldn't afford that, but I had a small street bike.
just let u know

You can call them middle aged wanna be's but you have to be middle aged to afford a nice Harley and if the gentleman was sitting in traffic I don't think it was his fault that someone was not paying attention. Hope he was not hurt bad.

Sorry, sometimes after I read the junk on here I kinda get a defensive attitude. Seems like there are a lot out there who want to give harley riders a bad name. But harley or not its all about the ride. And you are right about people not paying attention to a biker. Sometimes I swear I think they do things on purpose just to freak you out. If they don't ride they don't understand how quick you can get in trouble just trying to avoid them. Anyways, just wanted to say sorry for shooting off my mouth.

A little bit of TRUE information about this man and woman that were involved with the terrible accident that happened at the intersection of where Captain D's and the Blood Center is located. We were behind the motorcycle at the red light, our light turned green and the lights on US 23 turned red, as always. The motorcycle pulled onto US 23 and as we were following, out of nowhere a Mazda 6, driven by Patrick Duty, came flying through the intersection, running his red light, and hit the motorcycle in the rear. The woman on the back of the motorcycle was thrown at least 20 feet into the air, landing on the concrete road on her face. The man, whom was driving the motorcycle, was thrown from the bike also, in a different direction. I pray that they are both okay, and cannot stress how important it is to make sure you never run a red light, this was a very graphic accident, and to see it that close was unbelievable.

They are weekend riders because they work during the week. Maybe, if you tried it you too could afford a nice motorcycle.

A motorcycle offers no protection to a person's body, that is about like standing in the road getting hit by a car goin about 65 mph. The couple was in bad shape, I was about 2 feet from her and him. The person who hit them had no visible injuries but the man and woman had various visible injuries. I pray they r both okay.

When I rode pass the accident looked like the bike was a total loss from my view and the man was lying on his back on the pavement..To many people in a hurry to get somewhere..People think they are in a jet pane on the roads..

I know I was just trying to be a [email protected] since Hank came in with his comment LOL

But I did actually hear that about Patrick using but, of course, I have never saw it therefore I am only speaking after others.
