Default 246mph bike at martin 131 dragway on 9-10-11 guy got ejected check it out !!

they had the funny car nationals last night and brought the kids to watch and one of those guys with ***** of steal was there with a nitro bike.. and well he got ejected at the top end of the track about full speed.. the video wasn"t mine i found it posted on youtube..
cant really see it to much but you can imagine.. did see the bike when they brought it back and well its a good $150,000 boat ancore now.. straight up demolished.. had to have hit the dirt with no one one it doing a good 150+and thats being kind when you can see he got ejected just after pull track at 246 that meens not much breaking .. i saw the dust cloud..
they said he was alert and fine but dought it they did rush him to the hospital (of course they are gonig to tell you he is ok)
word is he sat up abit to much as he was slowing and the wind hit him like a parachute and just sucked him right off the bike.. the strongest person in the word wouldn't have been able to hang on if that was the case..

anyone else there ?? anyone have more pics at all add them..

heart goes out to him and hope all is well..

That's why I sold my GSX-R 1000. I feel a little more safe with a cab and a seat belt.

Idk...i can hold on with with one hand sitting straight up at 160+.... i ALWAYS sit up after 175-180mph runs.... waaayy easier on the brakes than it is staying full tuck.

looked up and seen he has crashed like this before... one of them looks real simaler.. one other think could have been as u see the bike loose power.. might have blew up and since he is over the motor.. it could have knocked him out and just fell off.. who knows
