bike wreck in Darien

I really hope this was no-one from the site but I cleaned up a non-fatal bike wreck today at Plainfield and RT 83 in Darien. Apparently the kid on the 06 gsxr600 was running from the cops and heading east on Plainfield trying to make a turn and head south on Rt 83. From what I can see he came in a little too fast for his skill level and had no traction because of a bald rear tire. It looks like he skid to a stop on the rear brake and the bike starting going sideways on him before it got traction and flipped him over and landed on the left side. But don't worry the nice leather riding gloves he was wearing protected his hands. The lack of helmet or jacket didn't seem to matter to him since he had the cool gloves. The bike was laying on its stunt cage which was not properly installed. It was missing the threaded rod that connects the two sides through the swing arm pivot. But it did do a nice job of svaing the main fairings. The left side of the tail blew up and the left side of the tank has a dent where it hit the ground before rocking back onto the wheels and crash cage. So as I get ready to leave here comes the kids under 21 girlfriend who happened to be following him at a high rate of speed in a ford escape when she cut off the cop that was trying to pull the kid over. I barley got the bike unloaded off the truck when they called me back to get her car for under age drinking and DUI. I guess the kid on the bike had been drinking too before he got on the bike. Not a smart move. As far as I know he'll be alright. He was talking on scene but was a little bruised. When I put the bike into the yard the back tire had a four inch wide flat spot across the center and still had all the molding tits all over the edges. The best part is the bike only had 2800 miles on it. I'll never understand why some of tehse people think they are invincible on bikes.

It is not the bikes, it is the age.

Some people outgrow the 'I am invincible stage' and some people never do.

Age, unfortunately, is irrelevant for finding the end point.

But by your statement you are saying that all people grow out of that stage...

I dont think so, I believe that people control their stupidity level regardless of age. And some choose not to control it.

Ahhh, man, I was a real tool till about 25. Then I started to settle down.

Now people think I'm a bit too mellow with my riding/driving.

Mebby I'm just too old.

I hope this f*ckhead never gets on a bike again. I also hope he spends a good amount of time in jail.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Sad thing is, there are probably more incidents like all the time all across the country.

Girlfriend sets a pick on the cop-- now that's dedication

3rd declaration: In such extreme circumstances, the law is by definition inadequate. To shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law, to pursue natural justice. This is not vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive-it is an emotional response. Vengeance serves no larger purpose. Society does not benefit from vengeance. Violent men are not deterred by acts of vengeance. The only appropriate response to their actions is the one I have chosen to pursue: a course of purposed, intentional violence. Violence intended to instruct, as much as destruct. A course, in a word, of punishment

i was talkin with this harley guy yesterday at a house party and i asked him why harley guys dont ride wearin helmets or leathers (beside the vests) on their bikes. he said cause a helmet only guarantees you an open face casket and that its uncomfortable and that hes fine without one cause hes already crashed on someones ducati wearin a full body suit but no helmet. hes like "i walked away from it just fine without a helmet and barely any scratches and another guy there was like "Cause youre wearing the leather suit!". im like "are you sure you didnt hit your head?" but yea that was his mentality as a harley rider. the other guy just bought a brand new 1000cc gixxer and its already been dropped.... but not by him he was at work when his gf texted him to say she tried moving the bike in the garage and dropped it.
