there must be a mix up

RIP.

No disrespect the this gentleman or his family but we all know what the risks of riding motorcycles are. I do not think that we need to be posting every fatality that happens on a motorcycle in the Northern Virginia area.

RIP. Was on Joplin that day probably around 10am. The road does need some serious repair from the winter abuse.

I was heading South on 395 in DC Monday and traffic was backed up going North with an accident. When I passed I saw a sedan on top of a large cruiser motorcycle. No ambulance was on scene. I can't find anything on the interwebs so my guess is the rider didn't get hurt too bad.

I see no problem with posting the Joplin Rd crash on here. It's a local (to some of us) and a popular road with bikers of all brands.

I agree that we all know the risk, but it doesn't hurt to get a reminder every now and then that we should take it easy out there and stay safe.

I understand what both of you are saying. I look at it this way. Every year we have members and friends that go down and get hurt or killed while riding. It is bound to happen again this year. I am not saying that we shouldn't post up when a friend or member is hurt. But if we start posting every time somebody goes down than every day when we log on there will be another RIP thread.

I have been on this site since 2007 and I don't remember a year that has gone buy when I have had a personal reminder of how I should be safe out on the roads.

While I'm sure very depressing to come in on a Monday or Tuesday and read about accident after accident, death after death...

I believe we SHOULD post up MAJOR ACCIDENTS AND DEATHS that are LOCAL...

I think it's not the best idea to post up accidents from all over the world. My rationale is because sometimes you never know if a riding buddy has been hurt or killed. Most of us are not immediate family and generally they are the first to know...not the "riding buddies" unless they were on site at the time.

This would be an avenue to get the word out that a rider went down or God forbid passses in a fatal accident.

EDIT: I don't think we should post fatalities and bad accidents as a
"personal" reminder...I mean really you shouldn't need that type of reminder to participate in this sport/hobby/passion...

I think posting for fact of being able to reach people you don't always communicate with on a daily basis is sufficient in case of an accident.


What do you value more? Life or Image?

"I don't ride, I usually just sit around wearing a tshirt and my icon back protector and talk shit about anyone who does not have a liter bike. That's how you can pick me out of a crowd. I also wear a red tophat."
