    some one in the kirkland area went down this morning. saw this at about 8:00. looks like an r6. Seems like the camry didn't yield to the light, or that the Camry was in the middle and tried 2 beat the light just as the r6 was trying 2 beat it also.

    I hope the rider pulls through okay. Sucks that everyone seems to be in a big fat hurry all the time. We need to slow down, especially in heavy traffic areas.

    Prayer out to the rider.

    PS: NEVER do what this rider did. The moment you lay it down, you give up. You can tell he laid down the bike prior to impact by the oil cleaner on the road.

    What makes you think that? :scratchea

    Given the angle of the road and photo, it looks like it's a downhill slope. And considering the hills in Kirkland, it doesn't look like he laid it down IMO.

    Again... downhill?

    If he had laid it down, wouldn't it have tucked under the car most likely? You can see how it smacked the front fender and then folded over. Doesn't look like a lay down to me.


    Either way... best wishes for the rider. I hope he comes out of this ok.
