Glad he's OK.
Me too, Miguel was a straight up madman on the Honda's. He is partly responsible for helping Nicky Hayden become a world champ.

Met him at Mid Ohio. He and Nicky were riding Honda's then. I had met Earl and his boys two seasons earlier. Hanging out in the pits watching them prep Nicks bike and Miguel strolls up like anybody else. He tapped me on the right shoulder while sneaking over to my left............I spun around and was standing there like an idiot while he had a grin on his face. I did my best not to geek out and stuck out my hand to say hello. We did shake a good firm handshake. A very affable guy, likes to smile and have a laugh. Deadly serious come race time and if he was off that day, he is a bear.
He's a smaller guy but, all muscle. One of a few I can say I have been honored to meet.

I read that article a while back and thought "what the hell?" Man can't even go on a bicycle ride without getting "F"'d with?

I didn't meet Miguel...well I did but not like socially. We did run into his folks seemingly all the time. So much we got to where we'd each say hello because we saw them 3 times a year or more.

Sometimes at the track, sometimes at dinner after the races....nice folks too BTW.

Ain't that a bitch! Look at Hayden as well. Both of those men made their livings racing motorcycles at five gazillion MPH .... Hayden is taken out while riding a bicycle ... and while on his own bicycle Duhamel gets shot in the head by an asshole.

Hmmm ... don't ride a bicycle in public areas? ... I guess? .. most especially if you're a big time motorcycle racer?

Gear? What gear? A bicycle helmet, spandex and gloves? None of that is gonna stop a BB or a .177 pellet.
.anyone notice what he's riding?
Who? Miguel? He wasn't riding anything in the video. The bike shown with him when he displays his cap with the hole in it...from the colors I'd guess Look. Could be this:
