Not quite the same circumstances as the congressman's in an earlier thread.

Re: Another bike wreck

Quote Police say the rider, whose name has not been released, flew into the air at impact, almost striking the overhead traffic light at the intersection of Marietta Boulevard and Carroll Drive.

Geezus...

Re: Another bike wreck

Speeding cyclists are currently the focus of law enforcement crackdown in DeKalb County.

It's happening everywhere. *These sons of bitches won't learn. *This keeps up and it spells doom for the rest of us. *

Re: Another bike wreck

Kinda looks like it was a silver/black F4 from the first pic

He was hauling * at impact

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

Dumbass squid. Is the driver of the car OK?

And, by the way, Booth, I think you meant to say that misspells doom for all of us.....

Sorry, couldn't resist

Re: Another bike wreck

It has been said before, but, you've got to be a complete moron to do 100mph on a city street. Unfortunately, this one paid the ultimate price.

Re: Another bike wreck

Link to what some are saying about the 'crackdown' in Atl.

I don't ride in the city anyway.

On a side note last night was bike night at the Vortex (one of the largest bike nights around). About a month ago a young girl (19 I think) was killed in an incident of drag racing after bike night at the Vortex. She was on a bike that was T-boned by a 'Busa that was traveling at a high rate of speed.

I think that this is just another example of the public's ignorance of motorcycles. The police (no offense Chain) and the media in this case. Although I wouldn't put it past our media around here to screw this one up all on their own.

This was a recent story here about a guy who got killed on a 954. *I ended up writing the editor to get the names of bikes right because that was like the 3rd report they have messed up.

A fatal accident shutdown part of I-75 early Saturday morning.
The accident occurred around 1:30 a.m. between the Paddock Road and Norwood Lateral exits of southbound I-75.
Police said Marvin Bullock, 34-years old, lost control of his Honda CRV motorcycle and struck a light pole.
All southbound lanes of the highway between the two exits were shut down for almost four hours.
Bullock, who was wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The crash is under investigation

Re: Another bike wreck

officers are hoping to catch violate and also deter speeding in the county.

WTF, I guess in that county, the cops bend you over instead of the prisoners.
