please excuse me if the details aren't totally clear... this is second hand pass on and I just found out about this last night:
my cousin (doesn't ride) was travelling on the freeway on the island to the ferry to head back to the horseshoe ferry.
he said he was rolling at about 120kph in his jeep Liberty when he noticed a black sportbike flying up behind him hard and fast. The bike made a couple quick turns and blew past him at about 160-180ish. the guy was wearing tshirt and jeans.
So when my cousin rounded the next bend all he could see was smoke and the black bike spinning on its side sliding "forever" up the road. He pulled over in a total panic. and was trying to locate the rider. he had already dialed 911.
He said he looked everywhere for him. then finally puzzled he looked over a ditch and up an embankment over the meridian and found the guy lying in the middle of the 2 oncoming lanes. cars are now screeching to a halt... one just barely stops a few feet in front of the rider. My cousin said the guy was a mess.
my cousin was late and parked in a dangerous spot, couldnt do much more. headed for the ferry.
anyway he had left all his info with 911. a cop called him a few days later and
said the guy made it but was in really rough shape.
just wondering if anyone knows anymore about this guy and how he's doing?
on a lighter note: my cousin wanted to buy a bike has been talking about it for a couple of years. well his minds changed after this incident.
also he used to laugh at me when he saw my in my "black leather power rangers outfit" his minds changed about that too.
