Did she fall off the bike? Or did it hit the guard rails and was she then ejected? Was it because she was on a Harley Davidson? Wow talk about no compassion, there would have been more of a story if it were a auto accident.

They don't even have the story online any more...

You don't just fall off a motorcycle.

If she was over 40-50 it could easily be a stroke/heart attack/seizure.

Sounds like a case of "Target Fixation". You tend to steer towards what you're looking at. She was probably scared that she was going to hit the guard-rail, and focused on that.

Another rider down...R.I.P....

Elaine was in my Women's bible study group and had a heart for the lord. She was always such a bright, cheerful person. We are all in shock and I will be praying for her family and friends. Rest in Peace my sister.

I would venture to say there is a cage hiding in the untold part of the story there somewhere.
Sad for her and her family

I have driven that road many times and it sounds like where she lost control is where it narrows from a 4 lane highway down to a 2 lane winding road. If you don't know it's coming, you could easily get caught going too fast. It is the site of many accidents.
I understand she was a single mother of a 12 year old son.

A 2 sec mistake and it turn out very bad, I have been riding for 30 yrs on the street (HD) and you must know that things can happen at any time your on the bike
motorcycles are not for every one just like some can not play sports, today lots of riders can not fix there bikes and that tells you something about the rider, I will never talk anyone into riding a motorcycle FEAR SETS IN AND THEY LOSE CONTROL... MAY GOD BE WITH HER AND HER SON.

Wow My Wife and I were the first on the scene as a matter of fact it was my wife had the only phone tha t could reach out to make the 911 call. She was in poor condition but didnt think fatal. Our condolences to here family and the pack she was riding with. was hard to determine the cause. The bike was standing up on its own againts the gaurd rail about 30 feet in front of here and I for sure could tell she had skipped of the rail. Attention getter for myself and really has me riding event more safe than before....

No, she was going down the mountain, not up so she wasnt near the guard rails
