Everyone knows that bike isn't my 2005 Bass Boat Blue FJR.

You guys be careful out there.

We lost a biker today. I don't know who it was but if anyone hears send my condolences.

Less than a mile from Center Hill Dam on 141 going west I passed an accident scene around 4pm-5pm, probably 10 or 20 minutes after the crash. An Ambulance and the Sheriff appeared to have been there a while, neighbors where in the yards.

Looked like a young rider laying still in the yard with a sportbike near a tree. I didn't see any other vehicle involved and it appeared to me that he missed the curve, might have hit the tree I don't know. No one was assisting him and I feel sure he had passed.

If you know this road you know there are some rolling quick curves and many of them are blind. This was at the first sharp curve leaving the Dam before Long Branch Rd.

Sorry to hear this, definitely a tricky section on 141

new tag, not hard to find - but a word of caution. this is on a one lane paved road with sharp turns, gravel in the corners, potholes, patches, etc. You can get there on any bike (there was a Road King just outside the photo) - just be careful. Having said that, be sure to ride the entire length of the road.
