In case you missed what I posted in the shoutbox around 10:30 Tuesday night.

In the area of Christiana Dr and Gloucester Parkway in Ashburn.
After leaving Kirkpatrick's under the influence of alcohol, a 23 year old male rider (according to witnesses and a friend) attempted "tricks" (reportedly in the parking lot and went over the handlebars, stoppie?) and crashed. He was wearing a helmet, but it came off. Initially he was breathing and in an altered state of consciousness. The latest report was that he was conscious bleeding from both ears, and had some memory of the incident. The cop on scene reported a very strong smell of alcohol. The accident reconstruction officer is enroute, after having to put his uniform back on.

He was medivac'd to FFX hospital at the request of the Loudoun Sheriff's Office for evidentiary reasons.

I wish I could be optimistic that everybody reading this will learn from this. Unfortunately, I see too many riders who think it's okay to ride in t-shirts and shorts.

C'mon, people. Wear your gear and ride sober.

I hope the rider makes a fast and complete recovery.

I see too many riders who think it's ok to drink even one beer and ride. Totally irresponsible.

Like I said before. It angers me to see people think that alcohol does not play a factor in your judgement while riding/ driving. You are placing your life and other lives at risk.

That is totally irresponsible. This message will only sink in for so long, then it's back to the normal routine for the people that DO go out and do things like this...

I hope he gets better. Lessons are definitely hard learned this way...


Wow. Just..................wow.

Bleeding from both ears are not something to joke about. It doesnt take much to jar the brain loose in the skull. Drunk, helmet not strapped correctly, no riding gear, goofing off in the parking lot...all lead up to something going wrong. Where were his true friends? Or anyone for that fact. A true friend would just walk over and take the keys before he got on the bike. I would gladly take an ass beating for taking the keys (if it came to that of course) before I let a friend of mine possibly ruin his life.

Enough said. Its all been said before. Ride safe. Stay alive.

As someone who had made mistakes in the past....(DUI 93), and learned bigtime. I hope this person recovers and learns a valuable lesson. Assuming a physical recovery is possible (I hope), sounds like they will be in for some legal fun, which will be no picnic.

Mike/Mark,

About that ass beating....."I'm your Huckleberry"..... Kidding bro!

It has nothing to do with Jeans and T-shirt. Being "de-clothed" cannot make someone do something stupid. It all comes from the brain! Whether he had gear on or not he was still going to do what he did.
And the only type of gear that can really stop someone from having something broken is a helmet and back pad. Other than that, your body is pretty much open!

I wish there were a way to change people's outlook on riding so they would realize how important gear is and ride within their ability...which means that nobody is fit or good enough to ride after drinking...not a single person.

Honestly- I think everyone is missing the point here. Regardless on if he was wearing gear or not, he was drinking, then going off being stupid. He should never have gotten on the bike.


Wow. Just..................wow.
