  1. He hit the guardrail on the side of the great western, all the houses that back onto that reserve are all houso, I saw the aftermath, all his mates and neighbours standing around shirtless arguing with the police fire and Ambos thing to load the poor sod into the care flight chopper, from the angle in my cab I couldn’t see a helmet or any protective gear other than a pair of shorts. Idiot would have been alive if he followed simple rules like wear a helmet, have a licence and rego and don’t ride in a reservation that’s clearly marked do not ride bike there!

    1. He WAS wearing a helmet! And what does where people come from have to do with anything?! People were obviously very distraught and wanted to be able to say their goodbyes to him. You’re a cruel insensitive soul.

  2. If the barrier pictured is the one he struck then I’m not surprised. It appears to me to be, in certain light conditions, almost impossible to see. Painted white it would be more obvious.
