Default Motorcycle Car Wreck - interesting pictures

This is from an email I received today. Snopes says undetermined. My guess is that the wreck and pictures are real, but the text is fabricated. Presented here only for the pictures:

The Honda crotch rocket rider was traveling at approximately
85 mph. The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she
pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the
motorcycle. The riders reaction time was not sufficient
enough to avoid this accident.


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 20 feet from where the collision took place.

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

I believe it. I've seen some really horrific crashes. One was about 12 years ago on City Line Ave in Philadelphia. I was at a stop light, a guy on a bike comes screaming down the road 80 mph - 100mph and T - bones a P/U truck. The force of the impact literally cut the truck in two right behind the cab. The cycle rider lay dead, his left leg torn out from the hip stuck in the bike. His body made it over the truck but that was not before his head was ripped off and found 80 feet from his torso. What was left of the bike could have been packed into a carry on bag

Received that same e-mail about 6 mos to a year ago.

Yeah, the guy on the bike might've been going way too fast, but people shouldn't be talking on cell phones when driving. One of these days I'm gonna rip the phone right out of someone's hands and toss it as far as I can. Might land me in jail, but I'll feel good.

85 was clearly too fast for the conditions.

Most of those guys ride with the attitude that everyone driving around them will follow the letter of the law so they can ignore the law.

Might get flamed for this but I see most bikers have no regard for their own predicament when riding and often get what they ask for. They approach intersections assuming that everyone sees them and that they are 100% positive the granny or texting kid is going to stop. They see the car backing out of the driveway and assume the driver sees them and will stop.
You may say it was the other guy's fault but in the end if you are on a bike you need to be a defensive rider.

I was driving on the freeway when out of nowhere two motorcycles past me like I was standing still. A few miles down the road the freeway ends and there was a gas station on the side and I saw the two bikes. I was needing gas anyway so I pulled in and struck up a conversation with the bikers. I asked them how fast they were going back there and said around 170mph. I asked if they ever get tickets and he said they had and that their boss pays for them. Their boss is Kawasaki, they are on the race team.

My last bike met its end after a friend borrowed it,

He was fravleing about 60 MPH (where he should not have been) . A woman coming towards him on a cell phone took left right in front of him. He had enought time to just see it coming before he hit it square.

Lucky for him (if he was lucky at all) was it was an older qounty squire station wagon and he hit the front. He went flying and landed head first, but it was not the side of the car. When the parametics arrived they assumed he was dead becase the force of the impact turned the helmet around on his head.I look like his neck had gone 180.. He had my helmet on, and it was slightly too big for him.. again lucky

Lang and short, Brokon Nose, Broken Jaw, lost a finger, broke both foerarms, and shattered a knee.... The handlebars were still bent forward from where he tried to brace for the crash and the front wheel was bent back and was rigth next to the rear wheel.

It started as a nice classic 750GSX.... ended as a reminder how fast it could go bad..

I have 3 kids now. I have a Triumph in the garage that I look at a lot these days and ride about twice a summer. Ive never had an accident and dont plan to. But while the kids are young, its just not worth it to me.

Until you're in jail... then you'll feel bad... real bad... mostly in the anal regions

I notice people talking on their phone a lot in the mornings, on the way to work.

WTF wants to talk to anyone that early in the morning?

I think everyone should be forced to have a phone with them all the time for work, so they are available and on call 24x7. That would slow WAAAY down the amount of people talking on their phone. I hate even carrying mine anymore..and every time it rings, it's usually work wanting me to do something. It's a real vaca when I forget it.

LOL, now that you put it that way, I think I'd rather have died in the bike accident.

I'm a rider and I don't take offense what-so-ever to what your saying. As a matter of fact, I agree with you. It's just not safe to assume that car waiting to pull out isn't going to pull out in front of you, or that car coming the other way at an intersection isn't going to make a left just as your getting to the intersection. When it comes to deailing with traffic, you can't be too cautious.

You are quite correct, unfortunately just about any boob can go out and buy the fastest cycle made with just a learners permit and cash in his pocket. They really should have a system like the UK. A novice rider is allowed to ride a bike somewhere in the area of 125-250cc for a year or two, special license plate designation "L". After riding for the required time and surviving without major incident you then move up in class and ultimately after gaining several years experience along the way, you can then ride unlimited size cycles.
We should adopt a system or at least require a beginners riding school, anything would be an improvement over a written test of 20 or so questions and and off you go.......I can only imagine how many first rides off the dealers lot ended up being their last rides

The "crotch rocket " crowd as a whole ride irresponsibly!
I see these guys on the roads threading the needle
at high speeds and I wonder how far up ahead the big
RED SPLAT will be? Add them to the phone talkers, texters,
eaters, make up appliers, druggies and drunks and that little
trip to the store gets more challenging everyday!

Long stretch of clean, open highway:
Bike comes by so fast it scares the crap outta' me.
Seconds later, a State Trooper in a Crown Vic comes by.
Trooper is actually keeping up with the crotch rocket, wow!
His car was so fast there was a cloud of dust from a clean road coming up behind him.
A few miles up the road there were two Crown Vics blocking the road, angled with their noses toward each other, about two feet apart with one of them damaged.

There was something that resembled a partial bike starting about 40 yards past the Vics.
Wreckage, blood streaks and body parts went for about 50 yards.

You can outrun a car, but not a radio and a full road block.
Dumb Fracker!!!!!

Bikes are faster, bikers get more stupid.
Oh well....
I feel for the families though.

Too bad the taxpayers had to pay to fix the squad car. Hopefully, they didn't have to pay for the idiot's funeral as well.
