Deadly motorcycle crash video, here...

Hey, fellow Road Pilots, especially new riders:

If you think speeding through intersections is wise, you may want to watch this crash video first:

No. Just rethink racing through an intersection at extremely high speed.

Si. Be smart and careful, there's really nothing like motorcycling.

I still want a bike; the video really gave me a perspective of the reality of riding. It could have very well been a guy on his way to ---- and the car ran the light.

I remember watching that one a long time ago. It looked like the guy in the car pulled out in front of the bike, probably assumed that the bike was doing the speed limit.

I'm not trying to say that the car was at fault, but I know that I like to take a second or two to make sure that anything I'm pulling out in front of is actually travelling as fast as it seems to be. I'd rather be the jerk that holds up the left hand turn lane then the hambruger that gets scraped off the street.
Of course I'm generalizing from a single example here, but everyone does that. At least I do.

I assume by the look of the bike and the car that the rider is dead. Does anybody else find this to be extreamly morbid and wrong to have a video of some dude just walking around videotaping this? Yes it's reality but have some respect...that's just my 2 cents.

I think it's a sign of the times.

25 years ago and he would have had the camera rammed down his throat. Well, in Britain I think he would have.

The damage to the car is also massive, the passenger looks near dead, very sad.

you know, i was thinking the same thing, about the video camera man. just kinda insulting...i mean, yea, its a good lesson for all of us, but man think about that guys family or friends....

and yea, the passenger looks really messed up too. and was that the front half of the bike imbedded in the car?

Its not bad to document the accident...might help the insurance and maybe even some compensation for the victims.

He DID linger on the body a bit too long, though...and then he started kicking around the wreckage...I just stopped watching at that point.

i think in the states 20 years ago he would have gotten it rammed down his throat to. he definitely stayed on the body to long. also he got there late and took 7 minutes of video, no ambulance or other EMS shows up. he thought he was safe cuz he was in a generally deserted place. bad choice. someone is always waiting to pull in front of you.
ps my gf speaks spanish and said she thinks they are in Brazil.



if it can pull in front of you it will---live by this and live longer.

i dont see the point to this at all


if ya need video proof of what would happen if ya slammed ya bike into a car at speed to know it can be dangerous, then your taking up to much space ;)



im all about respect for privacy, if that had of been my mate lying there and sum wanka decide to pull out a camera, i think i would try to see how much camera i could shove down his throat before i stuck as much foot up his arse as i could manage.


Peace
