I pulled this from another board, I know the organizer Ray Kang (MN HSTA Director) personally for the past 8 yrs. I was ahead of him & his group on this ride when this fatal accident occured. I also knew the deceased from a couple of years coming to the same event. His son was actually behind his dad when this happened.
Below are the details if anyone in the cities is interested PM me and I can forward your name to him. I think it is a good thing to learn.
Most of you probably are not aware that a rider had a fatal accident at this year's HSTA TWiSTAR event. The rider made a simple riding error on Wildcat and lowsided trying to make a turn. Unfortunately there was a car in the oncoming lane which could not avoid him and ran him over. I was behind the rider's son, who was behind his dad, and got to watch helplessly as his son tried in vain to save his dad.
In honor of the deceased rider, I'm trying to organize a professional motorcycle accident scene management training class for Twin Cities riders on behalf of MN-HSTA.
The class will cost $55 per participant for an 8 hour class and will include lunch. We need 30 participants to break even and can have a maximum of 50 participants. If there are any profits they will be donated to either MMSC, MN MSF or Hedonistic Enthusiasm.
Post up if you're interested.
