More Pictures Here
I love the fact that it happens in front of the school what are the chances he was trying to pull a wheelie or something? Damn kids can't even read the street
I think Bikes were invented to help Darwin-ism...the smarter/stronger of the species survive...and the dumber/weaker side of the species die.....
If the car was at fault... then I feel sorry for the kid on the bike....but...the way it looks......he was just dumb and had to push his limits on his new toy.....
The paper plate. The kid prob never rode a bike before
Man, you guys make assumptions... Not every teen is a dumbass. What if the kid's been riding dirt bikes since he was 5 and understands how a bike handles and is responsible enough for his parents to let him have a supersport bike? Looks to me like the old lady pulled out in front of him, and shit, E can tell you, you don't have to be doing a wheelie to get the short end of the stick in that situation. Shit happens. You can be the best rider in the world, on the best bike, wearing the best gear, and when someone wants to pull out in front of you, leaving you with nowhere to go, there's not a goddamn thing you can do about it.
Maybe so, but that wreck didn't happen at no 15mph.
he was a teenager... The same thing probably would have happened on a '79 Honda that weighs like 800 pounds.
btw, why do we keep seeing bike crash pictures? It's really not all that sweet. Are you trying to say, "I'm such an awesome rider because I don't crash my sport bike"
he wasnt going that fast
i would estimate it around 25-30 at the highest
i hit a dodge ram at around 45 and damn near totaled the truck
i am impressed at where the bike ended up though
Yea, I thought it was an action shoot for a first second
I thought it was a mid-action shot.
So basically it's the parent's, and the kid's fault, that he was doing 30mph and some lady pulled out in front of him (which by the way will be considered the car driver's fault). He could have been doing 30mph on a pedal bike.
Your not the only one in the world who in the world who can ride a 600cc bike jeff. It is possible you know that the kid had been riding bikes since 12 years old. It's unfair to assume he was an idiot teenager. If I remember correctly you have only been riding for 2 years yourself.
After looking at the picture again, they've got some nice streets over there... All the roads near me look like a 4-wheeler rock crawl. <_<
My uncle ran into a car at 60ish, just pulled out in front of him. He had been riding for years, she just didn't see him.
i think hes trying to convice me not to get a bike
Look at the skid mark in front of the car he was doing way over 30
i remeber seeing that on the front page in the register, i thought it was pretty fucking crazy, im from napa too...
i wish, our streets suck. every week or 2 i hear about a street bike in some kind of accident.there was one like 2 moths ago when a guy slammed into a for f250 econoline van.pulled outa joe chevron and bam.this kid in the pic was stopped doing double or tripple the speed limit a couple days before and was let go.then this accident happend.
