    Exclamation Rider down - Heather + 70th Avenue

    Oh damn. RIP. Looks like a Kawi ZX-6R based on the lime-green fairing? No riding boots either..

    Street re-opened following fatal car accident
    VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - The intersection of 70th and Heather Street has been re-opened following a lengthy closure as police investigated a fatal car crash. At around 2:30 a.m. Vancouver Police say they received numerous calls of a motorcycle colliding with a car.

    The young man riding the bike died at the scene, while the two people in the car are fine.

    It's unclear if speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.

    He is dead and they think and looks like excessive speed was the reason. Looks like the car was hit pretty hard. I'm wondering if we should look out for motorcycles or cagers.

    RIP rider, condolences to his family and friends that rides and those that don't.
    Take care out there, I don't know who's fault it is. But I wish that everyone that reads this remembers that we should all take extra care when on the road. To those that I have seen pulling wheelies and stoppies in traffic, and riders cutting in and out of traffic please have some respect and common sense. The next one of these posts could be you.
    Please enjoy the ride safely today so that you can enjoy another ride in the tomorrows to come.

    Condolences to the rider's family. You really have to watch out there no matter what time of day. I was in HOV lane on Hwy1 this morning and had to break hard as some jerk decided to cut into the lane without looking. I guess he coulnd't see my bright red bike! On Friday I had a similar incident on Terminal Ave. You newbies out there always ride alert.

    RIP rider.
    You just can't trust the cagers and some riders on the road, ride defensively and safely.

    RIP young rider

    looks like a cager left hand turn not seeing the biker...where rider ended up, how far down sidewalk, and how cage is angled in a left hand turn position

    The problem with these crashes is that a car tries to judge the speed of a bike upon entering the left hand turn

    if the car tries to make it , its all over, as the bike is always travelling faster than they think

    most of the accidents i attend are left hand turns gone bad, mostly with two cagers involved

    sunny days are the worst as the sun gets in thier eyes and visibility is severly limited, they take chances

    everyone is in a hurry...

    Approach an intersection at a slow speed especially if you see a car turning left

    Remember it doesnt matter who is at fault, you will be the one dead

    Cover your clutch, front, and back brake, and be ready and alert at any intersection

    I have stated in many of these threads that most people don't see or yield to ambulances, a virtual tank, with lights and loud sirens...how could they possibly see a small bike???
