Bad accident this morning on Airport Way

GD it. Evidently 2 riders. 2 bikes. Don't know many details other than the male rider passed away and was part of The Cretins. The female rider is in the icu.

Hate this crap.

The Cretins are a pretty chill group of motorcyclists with chapters up and down the W Coast. That's what the hell they are. A couple few of them started the Backfire 8 years ago and it's blown up. Since you ride you probably know all about that though.

Sad to hear this. That section of Airport Way can catch you by surprise with the right / left turn combination if you go through there with any speed.

The badly injured rider's name is Sarah Jane Scherer. She'll be in Harborview for a bit. She has an awesome support group and a gofundme page that is going gang busters. Feel free to jump in though. I've only met her a time or 2 but what a swell gal.

I didn't know either and I have been riding steady in the NW for 40+ years... If you don't ride in groups or socialize much with the motorcycle community you tend to be out of the loop...
Always sad to hear about a rider getting injured or passing.

I would imagine that next of kin has been notified by now.
