I do it every year. I think my dad may be up from Austin to do it this year too.

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

Another rider killed

I know some people don't like to see this posted up here. I hope seeing it reminds everybody to be a little safer out there. Don't know if anybody on here might know him or not as he was a Marine station at the Joint Reserve Base. Surprised it hadn't been posted already

Police ID victim of fatal motorcycle wreck
BY BILL MILLER
[email protected]

FORT WORTH -- The man who died Thursday in a north-side motorcycle wreck was a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps and an aircraft mechanic assigned to Naval Air Station Fort Worth, a Marine spokeswoman said.

Cpl. Wayne Shearer, 21, of Holt, Neb., was stationed with Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 112, part of Marine Aircraft Group 41, at the NAS, said Sgt. Beth Zimmerman, the spokeswoman.

Shearer had served four years with the Marines and was a mechanic on the F/A-18 Hornet, Zimmerman said. He had been awarded the National Defense Service Medal and the Good Conduct Medal.

Shearer, who lived at NAS Fort Worth, had been stationed there since April 2005, Zimmerman said.

Funeral arrangements are pending.


View Larger Map

The wreck was reported about 6:30 a.m. Thursday on Texas 170, also called Alliance Gateway, near the intersection with Old Denton Road. The area is about a half-mile east of the highway's intersection with Interstate 35W and about a half-mile southeast of Fort Worth Alliance Airport.

Witnesses told police that the 2002 Honda motorcycle, traveling west at a high rate of speed, struck the back of a tractor-trailer that had just turned west onto the highway from Old Denton Road.

The motorcycle burst into flames, said Sgt. Rodney Bangs, supervisor of the traffic investigation unit.

Shearer, who wore a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene, Bangs said.

The tractor-trailer driver later told police that he did not know the back of the rig had been hit, Bangs said. The driver continued south on I-35W, and had made it to Arlington when he heard a radio news report about the accident, the spokesman said.

The truck driver got out to check his trailer and saw damage consistent with a crash, Bangs said. He returned to Fort Worth and "was cooperating with the investigation," Bangs said.

why? if he was going the speed limit, he would have easily been able to avoid the accident... not saying he was in the wrong in any way, just saying I don't doubt there was speed involved

If the rider was going an at an excessively high speed (which I dont doubt considering it was a sport bike) and he plowed into the back of a tractor trailer getting on the freeway because he was going so fast he could not avoid the truck I fail to see how it was "some ass hole that aint watching what he's doing." unless you are referring to the rider of the bike.

I wasn't referring to this incident particular, just as an example of what can happen no matter how careful you might be.

I use to run with one of the Dallas local chapters and there was hardly one older member that didn't have some sort of limp or bummed body part. Not to mention the funerals attended to our lost.

I love bikes and really wished I had another, but it will never happen. There is just too many idiots on the road for my liking.

Duke had a run of a corrected "9.4-second pass at 148 mph", when testing a strapped '08 at the strip with coaching from Gadson. that's a 9.676 where they were testing. not bad for a journalist.

riding at a high rate of speed at 6:30am means flying in early traffic. there's no way to turn out from a truck pulling on when you're doing over 100mph on a sportbike. really, it sounds like maybe the truck looked and saw no one coming, and then the rider was in another lane and changed lanes to that empty lane and gassed it quickly, just to hit the truck.

if he had been going the speed limit, I PROMISE you he would have seen the truck starting to pull out (even if the truck hadn't seen him) and he would have been able to slow down/avoid the problem no problem.

but if he was going 2-3x the speed limit, things happen so quickly, you don't even have time to react before you're sucking trailer

or the truck looked and nobody was there, and then the bike that was doing 120+ was there shortly thereafter...

people don't realize how much ground you cover at high speeds...

like I said... I'm not judging the rider... I live on the other side of the line... I push it whenever I'm behind the wheel! biggest difference is my truck won't accelerate at the rate of a modern bike!!!! well, and it weighs 10 times what a bike does...

I hate to hear about this kind of thing!

but when I read posts about people knee-jerking to defend a fellow rider just because they were sitting on a bike, I gotta call it out

again! not taking ANYTHING away from the kid, what he did, what he stood for, etc. I lost my brother right around that age. I don't want anyone to think I'm some heartless person. It sickens me to hear about losing someone so young that was fighting for our country. It just drives me nuts when other riders so quickly try to pass off blame on other people. Own up to your actions... enjoy life, push the limit, but think about it at the same time!

Well damn Miss Cleo! Your psychic powers told you all that about me from my 2 word comment? I just thought there were allot of IF'S in his statement. He made a pretty good rebuttal (FOR HIMSELF, imagine that ) But you, not so much! you can tuck that entire bs about me back into your ass hole. That must be where you found it. I’m not a reckless person, nor do I condone that behavior by others. But I wouldn’t expect you to know that about me from the 2 words I left in this thread.

Can anyone run a plate, maybe a VIN?

I've been keeping my trailer in the back of a friend's apt complex. He called the other day asking if I was leaving a bike there too.

The trailer is all by itself in the back (where you can park trailers, boats, jet skis, etc.) and he said there is a newish sportbike that's been parked next to the trailer, damn near touching it, for a couple weeks. I was at his place and rolled through the back to see if it was there and there was an 04+ R1 nearly touching the trailer. You couldn't move the trailer without having to move the bike, it's that close.

I didn't get out and look at it, but did notice it had a plate. I'll write it down or have my friend write it down.

Just seems suspicious, maybe nothing is up, but you never know.

You couldn't move the trailer without having to move the bike, it's that close.

I didn't get out and look at it, but did notice it had a plate. I'll write it down or have my friend write it down.

Just seems suspicious, maybe nothing is up, but you never know.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

Transmission Problems, Help!

06 SV650S with 9k miles on it. Popping into neutral from 2nd and as of yesterday popping out of gear on the 4-5 shift.

Basically what happens on the popping back into neutral, if you shift from 1st to 2nd it will feel like its in gear for a second or two and then pop into neutral. If you give it a real positive shift, its pretty much no big deal. I just figured that once the tranny gets some miles on it, you need to just be more positive on the shift through neutral. No big deal right? If I can fix it though I would really like to get it fixed.

Yesterday I had a family emergency and was riding the bike pretty hard to get back to the house to deal with family matters. I managed to miss shift going from 4-5 on just a normal quick shift. I was using the clutch but let out just before it made it all the way into 5th. It didn't really grind, just made more of a "clunk" sound. Today on the way to work, I always hit an open stretch of road and just for grins I usually get on it through there. At around 100 mph I go into to 5th on a quick shift, the bike felt like it went into gear, but a second or two later it was like it was having trouble holding the gear. If there would have been a neutral there, it probably would've hit. I was able to duplicate it again at around 75-80 mph going 4-5 gear.

Now the common thing that happens with both of these is that the shifter is still loose even though the tranny feels like it went into gear. By loose I mean that the lever can still be pushed up as if you are still shifting. <----(does that make sense?) Once it actually goes into gear the shifter is tight again. Does anyone have any idea where to start on trouble shooting this problem?
