Cool All new meaning to the words drive threw,...

These are pretty gory pictures.This was posted on another forum and these are the only details about it. RIP Suzuki. Scroll Down for pics.

The Suzuki motorcycle was traveling at a high rate of speed westbound on Jefferson Hwy and failed to negotiate the curve in the roadway. The motorcycle then left the right side of the roadway striking the front of the Taco Bell building at the intersection of Jefferson Hwy and Upstream Street. The motorcycle then penetrated the front of the building and exited the west side of the building. The Driver suffered fatal injuries in the crash and was pronounced dead on the scene.

Have to be a member to see it. I hate to riders die, but this kind of behavior is why the general pubic frowns on motorcyclists as a whole.

Failure to negotiate a turn is the number one motorcycling "accident", contrary to popular belief that the left-turning driver is. In over 50% of motorcycle fatalities, excessive speed was a contributing factor. Nearly 50% (I think the number is actually 40%) of motorcycle fatalities involve riders who consumed alcohol. It sucks when people die on bikes... really sucks. However, the majority (for now) of fatal motorcycle accidents are within our control.

It's quite strange how riders dont realise what the saving grace is all about when it comes to turns, its the difference between saving your ass and scraping it off the ground, specially if it envolves a helicopter.

Cruiser especially because of the lack of ground clearence. Sportbike because of the lack of experience.

Yesterday a friend posted on Facebook:
guys that act like morons on motorcycles really annoy me
My comment:
DITTO, myself being a motorccle enthusiest, and knowing the general public has a negative impression of motorcyclists in general, try to encourage other 2 wheelers to conduct themselves appropiately. I dont like restruants frowning upon our arrival, or campgrounds telling us we cant stay there.. If the motorcycling public wants a better image and better insurance rates, etc. we have to police ourselves.
Yesterday at 4:07pm

I think I was pretty clear.

"If the motorcycling public wants a better image...."

Oh please. F*cking spare me. I guess if them Negroes wouldn't act all uppety all the time and police themselves, the White peeps might just like them too. Tell your 'friend' on Facebook to go f*ck himself for me. Thanks. Morons on Facebook really annoy me.

Glad to see your still your normal agitated self. This has nothing to do with black people, and I'm sorry if you feel tension in that part of your life too. The Facebook friend was a female, and if you don't like Facebook, don't use it. It's really not much different from a message board.
