Rest in Peace.
Rest in Peace.
I was at RCH visting a friend who was in a bike accident on friday, when this 'max' was brought in with massive leg injuries, and a partially torn aorta(sp). What a sad day
There was no thread made for this, but my good friend, whom i previously mentioned, went down on friday at around 5:30pm on 56th ave and 232nd. He was riding along, when a lady in an expedition turned across his lane into a driveway, right in front of him. The biek tore the wheel clean off the expedition, and rider was thrown a good 30-40ft.
He sustained a broken shoulder, other shoulder dislocated, right arm badly sprained, bruised lung, liver, kidney on right side, shattered right leg broken in over 30 places, with most breaks around the knee but running from the hip all the way to the ankle, including 3 coupound fractures in the lower leg which came through the skin.
Please keep my good friend in your prayers
I'm sure Max was having having a great birthday when he went down. Beautiful sunny day, nice new yamaha ect... In a way its tempting to say that he went doing something that he loved but then he was much too young.
I find comfort that it wasn't someone else who took him out. Unlike the fellow hit by the Expedition, and I sure feel for him as it sounds like it will be long recovery.
I totally miss riding, its one of the best sensations in the world, but I don't want my parents to have to bury me and ruin the lives of those who care about me. I remember my landlord telling me about how they were worried when Max bought a new bike, and my parents tell me every time they heard of a motorcycle accident on the news "seems like all the time these days " they would freeze up a bit until they found out it wasn't me.
I'm dealing with the pain right now and I've lost others before so just be goddamn careful out there guys. Thanks for the RIP's, it always hurts to lose a fellow rider.
Truly a sad, sad day for family and friends my deepest condolences.Originally Posted by Bummer
I just happend to be at the scene after the rider was picked up by the ambulance. The vehicles were just mangled, the bike (newer honda) had penetrated halfway through the parked car. An eye witness had mention that speed was involved, and witnessed the rear wheel shake before the rider had his accident.
Even though Armstrong is a fairly straight road and he probably travelled it a thousand times. There are just so many unknowns on the road.
Rest well, peace be with the family.
Please all keep the speeding on the track, and the highway speeds on the highway not local roads.
Ride safe everyone!!!

I hope you friend fully recovers.
Work sucks -- let's go riding!
