A Topeka man suffered minor injuries and was taken by ambulance late Thursday afternoon to Lawrence Memorial Hospital following a motorcycle accident near Lone Star in southwestern Douglas County.

Bret Shaw, 43, was driving east on Douglas County Route 458 (also North 950 Road) when he lost control of the motorcycle, Douglas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Lewis said.

Shaw was riding with a friend who was on a second motorcycle when the accident occurred, Lewis said.

“He and a friend were riding their Harleys, and Bret lost control when he turned south,” Lewis said.

I was out there on a ride a couple days ago and could have totaled on one of those turns because apparently a farmer had left a large quantity of hay in the middle of the turn. Awesome! But I slowed down and avoided it : )

The thunder of a Harley is the sweetest sound in the world. We have two raccoons that visit the back yard and we call them Harley and Davidson. The possum is called Willie G. While not everyone can afford a full set of leathers you should still make an attempt to dress sensible. You see too many young women in short shorts and halter tops. I understand they want to look sexy on a sexy bike. But, if there is an accident and they slide across a few feet of macadam they are going to lose a yard of skin. Notrh Dakota catching up to KU. Oh, come on KU!!!!!
