    BMW demo truck at Americade and a stuffed S1000RR

    BMW demo truck was at Americade this year and all was going well until thursday when an S1000RR got totalled on a demo ride. I happened to be riding a Ninja 1000 when our group slowed way down to glide past the scene (ambulance had already left). Young man was released from the hospital later that same day. Bike is a write-off. I had ridden that same bike the day before.

    The real question is did someone hit him or was it rider error.

    Rider error. Went in over his head and panicked. Towards the end of the week the demo pace was "spirited". One guy got a K1600GT over so far he touched the road with his glove. I was hanging off a GSA and loving it.
