just saw it on the news, but can't find it anywhere online.

it was definitely a mangled c50t or c90t laying in the middle of i-10 under the front of some asshole's truck, where it slid for a mile i think they said before the s.o.b. decided to stop and see what he hit!!!!!! :twisted:

i believe frank freeman was the rider's name. sympathy to his family. i don't recognize the name, but i hope everyone down that way is okay. if you know a model t owner in the area, check on 'em if you're not sure, please.

EDIT: i originally had said this was in san antonio, but it's HOUSTON, and links to story is in the 3rd post

just found the story from Houston, not SA.

this link is the first report, and has a link to 'raw video' from the accident scene (lots of footage shot to be edited when reporter is dubbed over it), and it sure looks just like my model T did when I brung it home. There's pics of the bike starting about 1/3 thru, and an interview with an officer towards the end.

then this more detailed report from a day later, has a reporter giving the story. notice how the word "bike" in the live interview with his friend automatically turned to the word "Harley" in the written transcript. :roll:

anyway, condolences to the family and friends of Frank. he could have easily been one of us, and honestly, still hoping he wasn't.

this sucks. i hope they hang that bastard.
