RIP Christian Neuhauser

Just saw on motorcycle online that Christian was killed this past weekend- he was the editor in chief of RoadRunner magazine. Have purchased that mag a few times in the past, and was impressed by the trip info/content.

Sad to hear...

Sad. It looks like he was riding a Ural sidecar rig from the pictures.

I only recently found his magazine, and read the last two issues. I could tell just by that limited sample that this was a man who loved riding, and who was tremendously gifted in his ability to communicate his passion.

My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Oh no!

My heart skipped several beats when I saw the title of this thread. What a loss to our community and his family. I have been subscribing to Road Runner almost from the start and he had such a significant part in publishing, writing and photographing I felt like I knew him.

I know he had a wife, Christa, and at least two boys who rode with him and remember a recent article with all of them in it.

Life goes on, but sometimes it really sucks!!!

My thoughts are with his family and friends.

I just picked this up from Eric Bass (the Associate Publisher of RoadRUNNER) on a furum over on motorcycle.com:

I just spoke with Chris Myers, who is RoadRUNNER's Editor and based in NC. He went down to the accident site and gave me a description of what he saw. According to Chris, there is a tight, downhill, right-turning cloverleaf that leads to a 4-lane business district thoroughfare with a very short accelleration ramp of just a couple hundred feet. According to Chris, the skidmarks from the Ural sidecar begin on the cloverleaf and the impact took place in the left lane, before the acceleration ramp even ends. Basically, it looks like Christian lost control of the sidecar and shot in front of the truck. Whether it was due to technical malfunction, rider error, or obstacle avoidance, we may never know and certainly don't at this point, but I'm just passing on what I've heard to those of you who, like me, are searching for answers.

Bad, bad, bad situation for a sidecar.

Best to Christian's family and friends. Rest in peace Christian.

A family has lost a father and husband and the motorcycle community,
a photographer, writer and publisher.

RIP Mr. Neuhauser.

Cry RoadRUNNER Magazine looses key staff member.

Christian Neuhauser, Publisher of RoadRUNNER Magazine, Dies in Motorcycle Accident. Christian Neuhauser, 45, publisher and Editor-in-Chief of RoadRUNNER Motorcycle Cruising & Touring magazine, was killed last Friday in a motorcycle accident in Winston-Salem, NC.

I had the good fortune to hear Christian June 9, 2005 at Americade where he participated in a seminar entitled "Motorcycling's Future." He was a knowledgeable moto-journalist who died doing what he loved most. He will be missed big time. Here are a few links with more details as posted in our Motorcycles Forum. If you are using a Mac computer, you may experience difficulty accessing this forum post since our new forum design still has a few lingering bugs. If so, try the following direct links:

Please keep Mr. Neuhauser's family in your prayers, along with Ramona & Uwe.

Another terrible blow to the motorcycling community!! He will be sorely missed. His magazine was one of the finest and his views honest and candid.
He had a tremendous knowledge base of cycles and had a great desire to expand that knowledge as evidenced by his continued testing of all types of bikes.
He was doing what he did best and enjoyed so much.

Our thoughts are with his family...God Bless and keep you.

Perhaps his. Perhaps not. I guess we'll never know if it he overcooked the turn, or had a mechanical error. There does seem to have been a lot of accidents involving folks with ties or friends on this web site lately.

Yeah, I picked up on that headline too. It seems a bit insensitive. I guess it was "only" a biker.
