guys, its real sad that Islero is no more. I heard that he was on the inside of the lorry that was taking a left turn. I know that left turn pretty well and have myself done good speeds there many times coming across a few vehicles on the inside. There is also a slight bump on the turn that can upset the handling of your car / bike.
Nitrous and I were discussing that this afternoon. Thought it relevant to mention here that the bikes handlebar got entangled with the lorry. The pillion jumped to the left and our dear friend to the other side.
Though he had his helmet on, the lorry ran over him and his death was instantaneous. Apparently, his pillion was unhurt and that is shocking.
Guys, friends, please, please do NOT be on the inside of any vehicle on a turn, whether it be a lorry or any other vehicle. It can cost one's life.
Have known islero to be a very nice, gentle and sensible guy, but..even he is not spared!
Please, let us all understand the importance of doing the turns correctly!
