    Accident on Olive in Creve Coeur 3/16/10

    Post Dispatch Story 'Distracted' car driver blamed in motorcyclist's death By Kim Bell ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 03/16/2010 CREVE COEUR -- A motorcyclist was killed this morning, and the driver of the car that hit him has been arrested. Creve Coeur Police Capt. George Hodak said the 20-year-old woman driving the car was clearly distracted in the 5:43 a.m. crash. She has been arrested. Routine tests are being performed to see if she was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time. The motorcyclist was a man on his way to work, "just minding his own business," Hodak said. The St. Louis County medical examiner's office identified the victim as David Null, 26, of St. Louis County. Hodak said the crash happened while the motorcycle and car were both going east on Olive Boulevard, near Craig Road. The passenger car lost control, hit the motorcycle and knocked the man off, Hodak said. Two people were riding in the car with her. One was still being evaluated at a hospital. Hodak said the injuries weren't serious. Hodak said he expects to release more details later in the day, including any charges that might be filed against the woman.

    Pilot Road 2

    I am on my 2nd set on my BMW R1200RT. I am getting about 10k out of a rear and 11k or so out of the front. I replaced them at the wear bars. I am now half way through the new set after 5500 mikes last week! They are by far the best tires I have ridden in the rain. Mark

    Photo Stitching Software

    I use PTGui http://www.ptgui.com/ not free but the best I found. I used to use Autostitch, but I found it didn't do as good of a job warping as PTGui. I actually shoot quite a few pano's. Here are a few that I shot this month: I think this was 19 shots Mark

    Next time I will make sure to not pick a day after Randy has just been there... He tends to leave everything wet and sloppy when he leaves

    Deals Gap

    I was there on Saturday around noon. Rode through 2 hours of rain from the south. It was foggy but not raining. The dragon was mostly wet, but had some dry corners. The top was really foggy. After I left I around 3, I had heavy rain all the way to Nashville. Today I had about 2 more hours of rain from Paducah KY through Mt. Vernon IL. After 2 days of rain, I can definately saw that my Fieldsheer Apollo pants are only water "resistant" not waterproof! My Fieldsheer jacket did fine as did the BMW boots. I am looking forward to making another trip down later this spring (hopefully drier this time) Mark

I was on my way to a work conference in Orlando (1232 miles so far). hopefully it will be better on the return trip on Saturday, US28 still rocked even if it was wet! Mark
