I've seen these photo's before and to me it either looks rigged or the speeds weren't anywhere near 155 mph. Too much un-harmed bodywork on that bike for a 155 mph crash IMO. In a 155 mph crash ALL plastic pieces would be blown off the bike by the shock imo

^true to that, I witnessed a bike crash at maybe 75 mph and that damn bike just disinagrated. It was not a nice thing to see. That is why I stoped thinking of getting a bike. Speed is addictive and w/ a bike it is even worse. I will take my doors,seatbelts,and 4 wheels any day over a bike. Sorry to any bike owners, not bashing bikes, just feel that they are unsafe.

i agree , i think at 155 that bike would be completely trashed same with the front end of the car , not just the windshield. What did he do fall from the sky or do like an indy tail grab on his bike right before they smashed toghether? Any way if that was a real pic ,thats freakin sweet.

no way thats 155... that pooter bike couldnt even do 155. and that looks like a t bone not a side swipe on a highway.

Even if the bike had not disintegrated, hypothetically, for the bike to hit that car from the side a 155, obviously with that car going 0mph in the direction of the crash, i'm thinking most of the bike would have gone right through that car. I have a hard time thinking that a little golf's body is strong enough to stop a bike travelling 155.

If you really look at it, to were the windshiled is caved in that would be about tright were the rider of the bike would have impacted with is upper torso. his hips and and legs would have done alot of the body damage that you see.

the bike itself, by physics and shit like that should have been way far worse than what it is, BUT look at some of the crashes you see on TV and in Nascar. The Crash the Killed Dale SR.....It didnt look that bad, but it was, think of some you will see what I am talking about....How a 35 mph slide can turn into a Rolled and totaled car....

I am not a crash expert or anything like that, but sometimes thing happen that shouldnt.....as in the rest of tha tbike......Ok Flame me for it..I can handle it!

thats not 155, at that speed the golf would be in two peices and the bikes would be in 100

I was in an accident with my R6. A car turned in front of me and I ran down the side of their car at 45. My bike had more damage than the one in that pic. My leg was broken and nearly severed, reattached and held up after 5 weeks in traction. No more bikes for me. I think at 155 that bike would have split the car in half.

Welll, the picture is missing the original caption... but it goes to show what speeding can cause. It's obvious a few people died in that crash... and it's aparant that the Bike began to tear the car apart if you look at the bottom of the frame. The bike had to of been traveling pretty fast... but for the most part like most crashes the rider didn;t fall off and have the bike flip numerious of times. the Bike when face first into the door of the car. Everythign assoctiated wit hthat impact zone has sufficiant damage. Who's to see that the Bike slammed into the car... and became stuck.... thus forcing the car to be moved X amount of feet in a specific direction. It's hard to diagnose the real story without the original caption on there... but what we can determine is that there was a very bad crash involving a bike and a car. I would hate to be the driver of that car. I jsut wonder how long it took them to clean everything out of that car.

Wierd shit happens, straw into telephone poles in tornados, read a report of a lady being shot point blank with a 125gr jhp .357 in the forehead and living and being conscious the whole time, etc. etc. etc. In the real world, wierd shit that cant be explained just happens sometimes.

Damn. If that is real, wow. I could only imagine what was going through the head of the guy riding the bike a split second before impact.

on a side note, i dont really think thats real... for one, how would they have gotten the bodies out w/o touching the way the wreck is (3 people involved means somone was IN that passenger seat), and for two, lets say they managed to get those people out, the car is spic and span clean, the amount of blood and guts in that car that form of cleanness wouldn't be possable, blood stains, you know and if your using solvents strong enough to get it all out, it woudl have eaten some of that plastic/castrol striping

no, i think that was either designed like that somehow, or more likely somehow they launched a bike into the side of the car and called it a crash at 155 mph with 3 casualties

actually, bike could have not disintegrated precisely because of the high speed and extremely high force of impact

think of it the same way as trying to break a brick with your hand
either your hand breaks, or the brick.

with enough force - the bike could be completely unharmed, virtually cutting through metal.....

physics.. :)

I don't think so. The bike would have to slice through the pass side door, and being an older model car, that most likely is a heavy steel door with a big steal reinforcing bar inside of it. That bike would've sustained significantly more damage (while it is possible the back of the bike would may be intact). I understand where you're going with your comment, but you have to have a few different aspects, including speed and mass. If you try to punch the driveway with your hand instead of a brick, you'll break your hand everytime. The driveway has much more mass than your hand does. I don't think a bike has the mass to sheer through an entire car without disinegrating, even with the velocity it would have had.


The fact that they got the bodies out and left the bike in there is definately suspect, but who knows if the bodies would be remotely intact, or even still inside the vehicle ...

Also, if you look at the passenger side door jam ... one would assume that if the bike hit into the closed door, the only way the door would be able to go would obviously be Into the vehicle, which I would think would significantly bend the door jam inward ... however it seems fine, as if someone just removed the door.

Well since it smashed into the car it might have transfered some of the impact of the bike to the car. The front of the bike took the brunt of the impact leaving the back of the bike sticking out like a tail.

I have only one question.... Who clocked the bike at exactly 155mph??? It might have been a real accident, but I doubt they asked the rider how fast he was traveling on impact.... :jest: Could have been pratically ANY highway speed...

I believe they can deduce the speed by investigating the scene. Things like the length of tire skid marks, impact damage, and the scattering of debris could all be combined to determine the velocity, or least a rough estimate. Either way, I'm sure they can most certainly tell the difference between a 60mph crash, and a 155mph crash.

Btw, I do still have the inclination that this was a setup, but who knows.

Well in regards to the speed maybe the speedo was stuck on 155 so they assumed thats the speed.

I don't think it's real. Supposedly three people died in the crash, right? So did they clean all the body parts blood and guts then put the motorcycle back into the car to replicate how it looked after the accident(without the bodies)? Just seems alittle odd to me.

I agree you can calculate velocity based on skid marks if the bike hadnt struck the car....After that it becomes a VERY ROUGH estimate with too many variables... ;)

If it hadn't struck the car ? I'm not sure what you mean. They come up with a rough estimate of how fast cars were going in accidents based on skid marks all the time.

I was rear ended by a chinese chick in a sentra a few years ago, and the insurance company said they estimated her speed at 30mph at impact (I was stopped due to traffic). A kid I know lost control and ran into a telephone pole, and they were able to give a fairly accurate (according to him) estimate of how fast he was going when he lost control (which landed him in some trouble).

As far as I know it's easy as long as they know what brakes you were using, what car, and the total distance of the skid marks. If the skid marks end when you hit something they probably use other techniques I'm not aware of.

And I'd imagine it'd be somewhat easy to estimate the speed if you do this kind of work. I'm sure it's not an exact science but people in the trade can get pretty close.
