My Harley Buddy Crashed On PCH

Went up to neptune's net sunday and after a great ride going there. We were headed back home getting towards the end of malibu on the way to the 405. We were in the right hand lane riding staggered i was in the left side of the right lane leading. On the video i see we were just doing 30mph when a group of younger girls earliy 20's about 6 of them that were walking on the side walk. All of a sudden they just dashed out in front of us like they didn't see us or just thought they could make it. We both hit the brakes and i could see paul in my mirror and his front wheel tucked and he went down like some one did a judo throw on him.(Later i found very small gravel in his lane) I pulled over and by the time i got my helmet off and got to him.I see a woman sitting in the road holding pauls head.A doctor happened to be there so he was checking his vital signs another group had picked his bike up and got it to the side of the road. When i came to then front of the scene i could tell paul was in pain and he had a gash at his knee and his elbow but he was able to move them. I looked back at his head and the whole time he was being cradled in the bosom of an angel. This lady was dressed for the beach and looked like she was a swimsuit model at that moment all i could think of was damn i not wearing my helmet with the camera because paul would love to see this. About that time the girls that had darted in front of us came over and the good size crowd of people that had seen what happened just started yelling at the girls. I thought a few were going to get physical with them so i intervened and calmed it down. He was taken to the hospital and i stayed with his bike till AAA picked it up and hauled it home. The worst part was getting to his house and having to tell his wife. They cleaned and stitched him up and sent him home that early evening. I was really amazed at how so many people sprang into action to help in anyway they could. The bike really didn't have much damage to it. Later i made it a point tell to paul that if he had been wearing a jacket and pants with armor that he would have been able to ride the bike home.


The last 3 times i've been up the PCH. One time a car hits me 2 leg fractures and a fractured wrist. Time before this Nail in new tire and get pulled over by the cops. This time its my buddy.Don't think i'll be going up there anytime soon.

Glad your buddy is rather ok ...

So I don't venture there by mistake, at one point in my life, on that badlucky "something" ...

I believe that PCH stands for "Pacific Coast Highway". It hugs the Pacific Ocean and wanders and meanders through the towns and villages just off the ocean. There is no highway in California west of the Pacific Coast Highway.

Those girls were lucky they didn't step out in front of a car. For those that haven't seen PCH, especially on an August week-end, it's hellishly busy. They should have a K-rail along that sidewalk.

Glad your bud's ok.

Someday is not a day of the week.
