which really sucks... didn't see that much of the story.

NO disrespect to the deceased intended.

I was thinking the same thing. Vermont? Sheesh.

Hello KFDF posters. Seeing as the discussion has become stupid again, I felt the need to add absolutely nothing to the conversation.


I hope you all have a great weekend.

That local would be upset to hear he was dead!! He was hurt badly but still alive and mostly recovered.. Speed was also a factor.

For more info on the rider who hit the vette.. he had bought the bike less than 3 weeks prior in Louisiana, decided it was a good idea to go to the mountains on his fist bike, and had been offroad and fallen over earlier that day..

Actually there are versions that start a little sooner and the guy looks over and waves at the Camera, so no oil was involved. Don't know how badly he was hurt though.

They are talking about a crash later in the day by a local.
The motorcycle in the photo left an oil spill, thus contributing to the second crash.

I believe they are referring to the oil left on the road from that incident, which at a latter time was the cause of another incident in which a local rider went down and died... from my readings on here that's what i've gathered... any locals can correct me if i'm wrong..
