Hwy 9 Fatality 11/22/08 - RIP Phuzzy3d

A sad turn of events transpired this afternoon.

Cliff's Notes Version:
  • Where: Hwy 9, a couple miles up out of Saratoga
    Bike: Suzuki DRZ-400 - dark colored (black/red?)
    Time: Approx 3:00 PM (?)
    Rider Gear: Red jacket, jeans, etc

Reported events:

1) DRZ rider was heading downhill, in close proximity (riding amongst?) a number of other motorcycle riders around him, as indicated by witnesses in cars behind.

2) Approaching a righthand turn, for whatever reason, rider locked brake(s), (as evidenced by a long skid mark), and bike and rider impacted a vehicle coming in the opposite direction.

3) After impact, rider slid along (face-down) for some distance, ultimately impacting the hillside (helmet-first). The outcome being an injury (neck) that sadly resulted in him losing his life, right at that spot.

4) Numerous cars, and the riders of the motorcycles that were around the DRZ pilot at the time of the incident, stopped at the scene.

5) Apparently the fallen rider was not formally riding with the other riders/bikes seen around him, at the time leading up the the crash ... having encountered them on the road.


--------------------------------------------------------------------

RIP to the fallen rider, and condolences to his friends and family.

OMG! I think me and my buddy saw him take off from vista point. Can anyone in that group verify? If so, was he the one who jumped the dirt curb between the posts when taking off?

RIP

David asked me to go riding w/ him today but I didn't get the message until after noon... has a new '07 DRZ-400 SM, he just got it on Sunday. It's black with a little bit of red. It has HID headlights, aftermarket exhaust (Yoshi I think) a custom suede seat, and REALLY TOUCHY BRAKES!!! He wears a red jacket too ... and reading the description of the downed rider is making me really worried..

I've called and left a voicemail and have also sent YahooIM messages to him, without reply. He hasn't signed on to XBOX live at all today either. Anyone who has any more information PLEASE keep me updated. I'm so worried right now...
