Accident on NB 94 yesterday around noon?
« on: May 19, 2014, 05:24:22 PM »
I was on my way home from Burlington, heading south on 94 just after noon, and right around the border, saw a group of sport bikes coming north. One bike in the group went down just as it passed me, likely causing another to go down. They were in the left (west) NB lane.

Anyone hear anything about this? Looked like his plastic shattered and the bike lost the front wheel. Maybe he hit the railing first and I missed it? Not sure. Spooked me a bit.

Didn't see anything - was already losing it when I saw him, likely what pulled my attention to him. Might have been a tank slapper, but thought I saw plastic peel away and then the guy went down.

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Not me. I was on I88 today on the FJR. Can't stunt with that thing.
