Never thought that this would make its way to T-BHP. This happened on Saturday night at around 2pm. Was on my way home from a party,All i could see on the road were scratches and the bikes being loaded on a trolley being taken to the police station.

The guy riding HD ran away and the pillon rider was arrested,The HH guy was taken to a near by hosp. Wearing protective gear is different, if you dont have enough sense to ride it does'nt help.

Thats a nasty blow. I hope the guy on Slendour has his legs in place, because looking at the impact I pray his legs were not caught between the bikes.

One nasty accident that is. And the poor HD guy will have to shell out some good money to get it back in shape.

Guys,
If this happended last Monday early morning 1-2 am, than I know the pillion rider (cant be 2 HDs involved in accidents and that to in good old Hyd).
BTW the HD rider got a serious head injury and was in a coma. The pillion rider got a bit banged up but is OK (seems that none of the four persons involved were wearing helmets).
Accident evidently happened near the Mahavir Jain Hospitel and was primarily caused by barricades being put on the road.
Of course, that does not excuse any of the parties involved.

oh boy!! now thats some bad press for Harley Davidson.
Although it was not HD's fault, the news will start shouting around " harley accident " loud enough for people to talk negative of the bike and not the rider.

AFAIK, the accident happened in HYD. the police may have apprehended the pillion rider just to catch hold of the rider through him via investigation.

This is indeed scary, and with not much information coming forth I think the air needs to be cleaned up by some members living in Hyderabad.
I do pray to GOD that both the riders are safe.

Someone I know is related to the HD rider involved in the above accident. He is indeed in coma, may God give him strength to make his way through.

I hope the guy recover from the Coma. A guy i know was in Coma after a bike accident but with gods grace he pulled through. May god help the guy.

Guys please wear your helmets while on two wheels. I was saved from more complications due to the helmet.
