    Rider down today on Marine way

    Anyone know the details.
    Traffic was blocked off due to a bad accident and it did involve a bike. Happened around noon.
    So much work & so little time!!

    I drove past there around 10am. Accident happened recently. It was at the first intersection west of the Queensborough interchange. Tractor-trailer westbound turning left to go south. Bike eastbound on Marine Way into side of trailer. I didn't get a good look at the bike. From what I could see it looked like and older sportsbike, with some white, maybe a GSXR? Moderate damage. Ambulance, 2 fire and 2 cop cars on scene. No sign of rider. That's all I got.

    Another summer and a whole bunch more "unknown rider down" threads. Yay.

    Maybe so, but I've also noticed far fewer RIP Threads than years past. Those were some *very* tough sad years. Today, when I see a 'rider down' thread (and not to offend anyone here, truly) where the rider has survived... I see it as a gift. The -possibly injured- rider got the gift of life, and his/her family & friends ...got the gift of not suffering the loss of their son/daughter/friend.

    For me, though 'unknown rider down' threads can be tedious, if they don't morph into RIP threads... it's all good.

    It's not the number of breaths you take but the moments that leave you breathless.
