    first of all, i agree with whoever says "if you ride, you could die." however, that suv running a red light is something that happens all too often in greenville, and anyone could have been the victim of that. they better be thankful they didnt hit my car with my children in it! i hope this man recovers, but please dont make all of us sound like we are heartless in our vehicles, just because of one dope who didnt care. i value my life too much to get on a motorcycle, especially in the city of greenville with the worlds WORST drivers. i would advise against it for anyone.

        If you are traveling in a car you could die. If you take a plane trip you could die. If you walk down the road you could die. If you get choked on your dinner you could die. Exactly what is it you are trying to say? Sounds like you live in bubble wrap.

      Yes. He is a wonderful man, hard working, happily married, great father and grandfather. So sad that folks are in such a hurry that they can't slow down, obey the rules, and save a life.

    LOUD PIPES CAN SAVE A LIFE!!! You have to watch what you are doing cagers!!!! Just cause you drive a car, truck or etc. that doesn't mean you have the right ride the fender of a motorcycle or try to pass or pull out in front of a bike. Keep you eyes open and both hands on the wheel. Had a lady pull out and stop in on coming traffic in front of my bike, when I came back to find out what the problem was, she was on her cellphone texting and said she didn't see me!!! People need to pay attention!!!

      your life is your responsibility... I ride and assume everyone is trying to kill me. You have to look for possible issues and intersections are a prime place. Never assume a red light means people are going to stop....BTW loud pipes are a joke. Just for fat rednecks on cruisers

        If you can hear my pipes that means you have noticed me. And actually, crotch rockets seem to be louder than cruisers lately. Don't see many rednecks on crotch rockets, just kids.

        Loud pipes do make you more likely to be heard and are a personal preference to some. You are an idiot and a joke to the biker community for your ignorant post. Next time, keep your foot on the pedals and out of your mouth!!

          Thank you Lady Rider and nightrain, my point exactly! If you heard them, you noticed me; it just another way for me to protect myself. Not trying to be an idot or a fat redneck. Everyone has to protect themselves, simply put, end of story. Praying for that injuried man hoping that he make a full recover and is back out enjoying the road soon.

        I have loud pipes, and I am not a fat redneck. I am still trying to figure out where you came up with that idiotic statement.

          I do assume everyone is an idot and is trying to kill me. But that doesn't resolve the issue. Cagers need to be aware of the bikers. And as far as your comment about fat rednecks, I respect all bikers and their pipes, grow up. You must have been out done and showed up by someone with loud pipes. I see thats a sore spot but its your issue not mine. I am a female rider with loud pipes and they have saved my life more than once!

        agreed. and stay away from greenville at any cost. that place is motor vehicle death waiting to happen for any vehicle, let alone someone riding with nothing between themselves and the road. good luck to this man in his recovery.

    As a new rider, crossing an intersection is my biggest fear. I always approach them with extreme caution and always look both ways as I am coming to it. I pray that the rider makes a fast recovery and the person who ran the red light gets prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
  • by anonymous on Mar 14, 2012 at 07:25 PM
    He is a wonderful man! Praying for him and his family.
  • by Donna Location: Winterville on Mar 14, 2012 at 07:06 PM
    This is a hard working, good man. He is a husband, father, grand father and friend. Praying for he and the family at this time. I came up on the accident after the fact and my hat is off to the Law Enforcement Officers and their quick response. Way to go guys!
  • by cyclerider Location: williamston on Mar 14, 2012 at 06:33 PM
    We all know that getting through that red light was far more important than a human life! I see it everyday people running red lights just to stop at the next one. Question is why didn't this person stop? Who hits a motorcycle and just keeps on going? Well, my thoughts and prayers with the rider and his family tonight!

    Once again a motorcyclist with the right-of-way is cut down by the careless operator of another motor vehicle. While I think we can be resonably certain that the driver of the vehicle involved did not intend to cause an accident, his careless operation of a 2000lb blunt instrument nearly killed another human being. It is warm weather time and many other riders will be out. They are someone's: father, mother, daughter, son, aunt, uncle, nephew, niece, grandfather, grandmother, cousin. In other words a human being precious to someone. Please, please! Operate your motor vehicle like you know and love the other person in/on the other vehicles. I lift up prayers for the rider, and the safety of us all.

      we are all in danger of careless drivers whether we ride motorcycles or not. motorcyclists DO assume the risks; no one is forced to ride a motorcycle.
  • by Please.. on Mar 14, 2012 at 04:49 PM
    Look twice and save a life... everyone needs to stop rushing to get to places... start leaving 5 to 10 minutes earlier! My sister rides and if something was to happen to her I would be out of my mind. I pray for the rider and his family.
