Remember

Just saw this on the internet, its not graphic, however I do believe the one rider is dead, not possitive. Just something to remind everyone not to tool around where there are cages.

Well it my experience, I am usually aware of my surroundings, however its always the cars that come flying to a stop sign of a side street you didn't even know was there in the middle of no where doing 100+ that scare the shit out of me. Makes me slow down and think, I couldn't have stopped in time, if that car had not seen me, my bike would be in the car, and my carcass would be 200 feet forward.

Not graphic, my ass! It may not have blood in it, but the twisted metal is enough to churn my stomach. That bike was ripped apart! Muffler in one area, subframe in another, rearset somewhere else, the body of the bike itself is just twisted. Then the car, a vehicle many times heavier than the bike, is also pretty badly wrecked. All that combined with the unconcious rider on the ground and all the people scurrying and chattering in worry makes the video pretty impactful. It may not be blood-and-guts "gross," but it sure does get to my heart. RIP to the rider if he didn't make it, and be careful out there, everybody.

That is the worst shape I have ever seen a bike in after a crash. RIP

Yes I remember seeing this around two yrs ago. A real splattering & I think the rider down might have been the woman of the fat chap with the same coloured protective riding gear pacing around on the cellular phone. Though just guess about it all other then one bike down along with one cage out of whack as the woman kept on complaining for she was distraught as so many other were.

I have seen a bike pretty similar in real life after some dude was doing a wheelie by an ice cream shop and a truck with a trailer behind it turned left in front of him, he went into the trailer mid wheelie.

Hi All-

What a horrific video. The pilot of the Yamaha is apparently dead and I would think the occupants of the Audi aren't doing so well either. It almost appeared/sounded like the man with the short haircut was giving the rider last rites while feeling for his heartbeat. It's dangerous out there...stay safe.

i saw the 7 min. version on speedzilla. the woman in the car dies as well. just another reminder, be responsible, other people's lives depend on it.

that made dropping acid seem like a mild cure for boredom
