16th Annual 2016 BRP Trip after Labor Day

Todd and Teresha rode Davey home with all his stuff probably still answering the same 20 questions he asks over and over due to his ringing his bell! Grady also had a bald rear tire so we nursed it home with the shortest way home
Davey doesn't remember what he had for breakfast on Saturday only knows he was in a hospital bed and was in a wreck ( not actually true he was taken out or attacked really) he asked did he do something wrong a million times but wow what a amazing story he be telling for years and year it's always better to be lucky than good.

Re: 16th Annual 2016 BRP Trip after Labor Day

The Porshe was passing the Lambo in a blind corner?

Glad Davey is ok, and he should be sitting pretty after it's all said and done.

Time to hire a lawyer Davey. Porsche owners have money. Time to make him pay for his total disregard. Proven negligence is without a doubt. Looks like a brand new bike will be in your garage!

Hmmm
To me, sitting pretty would be coming home from the trip and going back to work with a head full of fun memories with my buddies and my Dad.

Davey is prolly laying low in dim quiet rooms around the house allowing his internals to re-boot themselves. That's what a buddy of mine was told to do after a much more minor concusion. I wish him a quick full recovery.

You guys are very optimistic about being made whole financially after such a crash. Having a Porsche does not mean you are rich, you could be a shit that has not trashed his credit rating yet.

16th Annual 2016 BRP Trip after Labor Day

I'm not sure about the passing thing but I know the Lamborghini took off up the hill first and did look like he was taunting the Porsche at crossroads! John is correct by saying Davey is laying low tryiing to rest but has also found he chipped teeth as well had a bruise show of on left foot, his left side of head has 2 bruises that look like racing strips and his right hip also gives him pain,right wrist hurts a lot but all the scans have come back negative so far and just still doesn't have any memory of that day or at least from waking up in the morning to around the time he was released from hospital all and all he's got a good attitude and just taking it day by day! We haven't seen accident report yet should be soon though!

Re: 16th Annual 2016 BRP Trip after Labor Day

From looking at the pics posted on the LR FB page, it seems very clear that the Porsche driver overcooked the corner and went left of center. The LF tire track is shown in several of the pics, and the centerline of the car is far left of the double yellow where the impact occurred. It's even apparent from the tire marks exactly where the LF suspension components broke on impact and left a different skid pattern on the road. Should be open-and-shut case of driver error/excessive speed/failure to control.

That being said, I wonder if some of the recent posts in this thread should be trimmed or deleted in the event this does go to litigation. Comments posted in an open/public forum like this are more easily found and used in court than those posted on a closed group page like the LR FB page.

Dave/Davey: Might want to ask your attorney what their opinion is. Just a suggestion.
