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.

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 **** 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!

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 **** 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 **** that cant be explained just happens sometimes.
