According to the Times Free Press, a resident of Chattanooga, Tennessee died in a motorcycle accident while en route to meet his parents for breakfast. The victim’s parents were waiting at a Waffle House, wondering why their son was unusually late to breakfast. They sent him a text message to see if he was awake. “His mom and I figured that he fell back asleep,” said the victim’s father.
Concerned, the victim’s parents decided to visit his house. On Shallowford Road, they encountered the scene of the motorcycle accident. “It was crippling…[he] was a good kid with a big heart,” said the father. The victim was riding his Suzuki GSX 650-R near the intersection of Shallowford and Standifer Gap Roads around 10:00 a.m. when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed into a tree.
Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ordered Suzuki to issue a recall on every GSX-R Sport Bike produced since 2004. An insufficient surface treatment of the front brake piston caused corrosion which generates a gas that reduces braking power.
