Re: stupid pic I have to share

What's the story behind it? There's got to be something...

Official Racer Dude Guy, according to a neighborhood 6 year old.

Re: stupid pic I have to share

What a numb-nut. This is exactly why I'm so freaking picky about whom I ride with and it's a VERY RARE day it's with more then 2 other riders. #### just seems to happen in groups..

Re: stupid pic I have to share

That pic was taken on one of the local bay area roads. It was an 'unofficial' group ride of a local forum. It was on a fairly popular route, one that I have ridden many times. The crash took place off of Hwy 84 (very good twisties).

On this 40+ person Saturday group ride (that I avoid like the plague) the rider in front was on a cherry VFR 400 or something of the like and the rider who was in back of him was on a brand new Duc 999. From what I can remember from the other forum the guy on the VFR hesitated turning left on to pescadero and the guy on the 999 ran in to him.

I'll post a link to the orig thread when the other forum is back up.

Re: stupid pic I have to share

Ah.. man, I did not realize you where from the Bay Area. *Yeah.. *that area looked familiar to me.

At first I thought Empire Grade. *Hm.. I'll have to look at it again.

The ONLY big-arse organized rides I've ever done that I though was at all worth it are the ones the Doc Wong runs. *Always had a good time, got good feedback from the dudes riding sweep on my group (usually group 4). *Plus some awesome roads..

Man.. that really sucks. *Which side of the ridge was it on? *Santa Cruz or Valley side?

Were they on the local VFR list? Man.. I hope it's not the dude I think it might be. There are not may peopl with VFR400's around.. and I know of only a couple in the Bay Area.

I almost got packed on my trip to Seca this year when I tought I blew a turn and tossed out the anchor. Damn the bike stopped FAST. The only thing more shocking than how fast it stopped was how fast the dude behind me went sliding past me on the right... Yeesh... Good reason to stagger....

Re: stupid pic I have to share

Yeah.. .that's one of the people I was thinking about... I just got me e-mail back online after an ISP switch and I had a couple thousand messages, a bunch from the BAVFR list.. man.. now I wish I'd not deleted them. Sad that anyone was involved but I hope he certaily was not the one.

Re: stupid pic I have to share

This was from a BARF (bay area riders forum) ride.
KIDRR, I can't find the link. ?
Bikes involved were apparently in pristine condition prior to the fall.

Re: stupid pic I have to share

Man seeing that Duc on the ground makes me cringe. Although I think I like the 996 better.
