Re: Friend in Horrible Accident
Gearhead, sorry to hear about that. I have to admit, yesterday, I had a similar scare. I was riding to work, and I saw a lot of tire smoke, and a group of cars came to a complete halt on the 5 fwy. I immediately went to lane splitting mode, and cut through the traffic. When I got to the front, there was an 01 Erion 929 laying in pieces in the 3rd lane of a 4 lane fwy. A truck and an 18 wheeler were moving off to the side. I actually started to pull over and snap a couple of pictures, but I looked around, and it seemed like everyone was watching me. I never saw the guy who went down, and thought about the 18 wheeler, and decided to keep moving. About a mile down the road, it hit me. I almost pulled over because I was sick. The next thing I thought of was how close that bike looked to G-Force's. And since he lives out there, I had to make sure it wasn't him. I walked into work still shaking. I have to say, I haven't ever really been shaken up like that before. It won't keep me off the bike, but it makes you really consider your own mortality.
