Dualsport DOWN on 85 this morning?

Hey guys,

Just noticed on the news what looked like a GS down on 85-NB this morning...

Might want to call and check on your buddy if it could be them.

And keep us locals posted!

News said the rider is critically injured. Prayers sent!!


Edit: "The crash happened about three miles north of Collinsworth Road near Newnan."

ke4yyq (Benny) lines near Palmetto, I think, and works in East Point. He rides a Gray/Silver R1200GSA.

I sent him a PM. He's up pretty early, so unless this happened about 5 or 6 am today (or he has the day off), it probably wasn't him.
