An interesting day on the twisties here..

I was reading the bay area riders forum and came across these pics.. and description

"Gary J. We were there probably 45 min before you. We stopped to ask "how the hell did that happen???"'.

When we were there, there were flares, CHP, and the couple that owned the Mazda, no rider. They said they were heading West on 84, when Moto#1 (not CBR) passed them (across double yellow probably), then Mazda signaled to turn left toward Pescadaro and was making the left when moto#2 (Red CBR) tried to pass them following his friend moto#1.

Next thing you know, CBR is taking a nap on top of the Mazda. Rider was "okay", but sent to hospital. Now the couple was waiting for a tow truck. Sux for the couple in the Mazda, they were heading to a wedding."

Some people just never learned how to ride...glad the nitwit on the Honda was OK...too bad the couple in the car were late for the wedding.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

thats impressive, it doesn't really look like the car is damaged, just the rear quarter panel banged in.

Be curious if the riders story matched exactly.

So that is right at the entrance to pescadero? It is weird, the damage is inconsistent with the story. If they were turning left while the rider was approacing from their left rear quarter panel, why is there no damage to the back or left side of the car? I don't see the point of impact.

Rob when are we all doing a pescadero ride again? We'll definitely have to make another pit stop at the crazy ladies home again

the only possible explanations for the absence of scratches on the car would be, that the biker applied the front break so hard, that the
rear of the bike lifted up and eventually flipped over --- just to land on the hood of the car.
