Re: Another Motorcyclist Killed

This accident occurred yesterday on one of my favorite interstate ramps. *It is a three lane ramp that involves a right hand bend that switches back left, all with significant elevation changes as it crosses 8 lanes of I-465 and two interchanges. *Needless to say it is fun it you know what you are doing. *The ramp cannot be taken with speed at this time of year because the concrete is cold: (1) it is fall; and (2) it is an overpass cooled by the air and not the earth. *Also, I am always conscious of my tire pressure before traveling this ramp system at speed. *This squid obviously took it too fast and was ejected (high side) off of the overpass. *I don't know if a helmet would have helped.

Re: Another Motorcyclist Killed

How far of a drop was it?

IMO, 'enjoying' a ride on a freeway ramp to the degree that it is 'fun' equates to riding too fast.

Re: Another Motorcyclist Killed

'Johnson was not wearing a helmet'.




I couldnt ride like that without a lid.

Re: Another Motorcyclist Killed

Looks like a '93 VFR. No lid - Doesn't fit the profile...

We are dropping like flies this year, people. Be Careful, please.

Re: Another Motorcyclist Killed

I dont think the 75 and sunny day we had yesterday had anything to do with num nuts crashing.....

We have a few on ramps here where you can carry 40 to 50 mph and drag knee on.....the 465 north exit to 70 west is one....and the 4 465 rockville road are knee draggers too.

I also seem to get better traction on concreat roads when its cold as apposed to asphault.
