Heard some sirens outside work a little while ago. Went out to have a look. There's a half dozen cops cars, yellow police tape around a half a block area. Saw one cop with the distance measuring wheel walk from an intersection, over the curb, across the grass about 60-70 feet and stop at what was left of a white motorcycle. About all that I could see was from the seat back, a tail that looks like a sport bike and a mangled mess of part of the front of the bike. Looks like the rider/bike came to a rapid stop when they hit (and broke off) a palm tree about a foot in diameter. There's a helmet sitting in the grass about 50 feet west of the bike, and a shoe laying in the road about 30 feet north of the bike. :(
Hope they're okay, but it doesn't look good. Will try to watch the news for more details and post up.

Well, it was a 27-year old male, riding a CBR. Police report that he was doing an estimated 80 miles and hour when he left the road and hit the palm tree. Amazingly, he is alive, though in serious condition.

At least he is still alive. Horrible to some, but good news to his loved ones.....

NO ONE should have to endure the loss of a loved one to an accident right before christmas!

Trust me, I had to do this 2 years ago

I'm more scared of being maimed or brain damaged than I am of dying. Does anyone else feel this way? I wouldnt be able to make a living without full use of my mellon on hands and really wouldn't want ot be a drain on society or my family.

while I think the dude was dumb for doing 80, I'm glad he made it.
