Drive Safe

A picture is worth a thousand words . . ..

The Honda rider was traveling at such a 'very high speed', his reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. Swedish Police estimate a speed of 155 mph before the bike hit the side of a car at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the rider's reaction time wasn't sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes. The car had two passengers and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them. The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 10 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in car and rider) were killed instantly. This graphic demonstration was placed at the Stockholm Motorcycle Fair by the Swedish Police and Road Safety Department.

In other words, they didn't even have time to say, 'Oh, !'

That happened to a guy i was dating in 2006, he was driving down the road and this dump truck wasnt paying attention and swerved into the oncoming traffic and Scott happened to look over at his friend at that exact moment, and the dump truck drove right over the top of his car and literally flattened it, the car so bad that they had to cut the car apart to get them out of it, Scott and Ricky both died on impact, but the wreck so bad that they both had to be cremated...

It is a repost but very necessary... good right up.

Motorcycle communities such as this one can help the newer riders that we see on the streets. Face it, there are many using the 'economic' arguement for reasoning to get the bike they always wanted w loved ones. Unfortunately gear and patience dont always follow suit.

That said, I appreciate the rides w required gear, understanding of safety and experience. Great group of people here.
