I agree more details would be good.wish we knew what happened in this crash - interested to know who was doing what and where.
but that can’t save you from another rider’s stupidity or lack of respect on the road. Dragging knee caps around blind turns may seem like fun but remember there are easy riders out for a Sunday cruise too.
Far too often gear (or not) is a fashion statement that depends on what clique you belong to. Sport-bike guys in full gear with knee sliders or a Mohawk helmet with tank top and flip-flops, Harleys in T-shirts, black boots, and jeans, ADVers in full Aerostitch or BMW garb. I think it often has less to do with proper and more to do with acceptance.It's probably a safe assumption that a rider wearing full armor on a sport bike on a twisty highway was not riding at a sedate pace.
(Doesn't mean he was at fault either.)
