    Brace yourself for this one... not for the weak stomach!!!

    This guy must have been moving! I'll post the story that came along with the pictures down at the bottom. I recieved these via email... some of you may have already seen it.








    The Tulsa collision happened about 1 a.m. Tuesday, Officer Jason Willingham said.

    Police said witnesses reported that White’s motorcycle appeared to be going at least 120 mph when it crashed into the truck on U.S. 169 south of 81st Street.

    Police said the truck driver reported hearing a bump and then seeing debris from the motorcycle going past him. When he managed to pull over, he saw that a man was embedded in the back of his trailer, police said.

    White was dead at the scene.

      duuuuur.. DONT DO THAT. lol.

      if you think thats bad, dont go looking for the taco bell pictures... dudeman gave a whole new meanign to drive thru...... he wrecked into the taco bell, and went THRU the building... big chunks of body everywhere.. was going between 120 and 170 at the point of impact.. no brakemarks, just right INTO the taco bell...

      his foot was in the drop ceiling.. nasty pics.



      then theres car pics... vettes under tractor trailers.. BMWs rearending flatbed towtrucks, girls ramming tollbooths...ect..



      if thats what you want to see, the internet is full of that stuff.

      really, i think something is wrong with me.. im at the point now where i can easily look at that stuff... i think working accidents for 3 years left me kinda shell shocked.. im at the point now where i just accept the fact this shit does happen, and get over it...

            forget the boots.
            his bigger problem was the helmet being too big for his head. lol

              From the looks of his gang rag, I'd say he was a "blood", not a cryp...

                  There were three young men killed on this same stretch of highway here in Tulsa in a matter of weeks, in the same manner. The second one was killed the same week he attended the funeral of the first guy. All three knew each other. The truck driver thought he had been hit by another truck, the impact was so great.

                  Riding fast is fun, but in town on the expressway- well, look what happens.

                    In order to keep riding, I have to accept that fact (though I assume many just stay real deep in denial instead...) - and as long as I don't ride like an asshole, I figure the chances of me getting my 15 minutes of internet-fame that way are lower than that guy (and Taco Bell guy, and Tollbooth girl, and....)

                    Riding = risk, and riding = joy too. It evens out.
                    I figure, I've only got so long on the planet, I'm not gonna die bored (but, neither am I gonna die at 120+mph)!

                      I think it's funny....I was thinking the exact same thing as I was scrolling down.

                      the problem is, that the more stupid riders that are out there doing 120+ and dying, the harder it makes it for us responsible riders who love the sport, to enjoy the ride. Other than that I think he deserves what he got, and now there is one less squid giving us a bad name.

                          depends.
                          im im going off to play speed racer, then yea.. full leathers, hard back protector, CE padding, full length boots, gauntlet cuff gloves, ect.


                          but on the street, theres nothing wrong with a GOOD textile jacket. the major diff will be that the leathers may be usable after a light spill.. the textile one will be trash... and, i admit.. the cheaper nylon ones will melt and stick to your skin... thats why i dont run around with a joe rocket mesh jacket on. lol but i see nothing wrong with something like the Joe Rocket Lightspeed... or aerostich gear.. or alot of stuff..

                          as long as the gloves are abrasion resistant and have a SOLD cuff closure system to keep them from coming off, theres nothign wrong with short glvoes... jeans... well, jeans dont do shit. lol. we all know this, but short of draggen jeans, your choices are really limited... im not going to walk around and hang out in leather pants... but i reconize the fact that one bad spill could have my kneecaps ground down to nothing, and my legs disfigured for life.
                          so far, ive been lucky.. when ive gone down with jeans, ive mostly slid on my back... didnt really scuff the leather that much either.


                          as far as what hes wearing.. its not as great as it looks, but thats because its ICON crap.. bling shit.
                          btw, if you want to see just how show they can be.. just look at their "stunter" gear... shortsleave loose weave "jackets", shoes that are glorified sneakers, ect...

                              ...

                              Ive seen what happens in low speed offs and theres no way id just ride in jeans, trainers(sneakers) and gloves that dont cover ya wrists. A friend of mine just had the bike slip away on a very slow corner but the bike landed on his ankle and wore away at the bone, after several opps I think it was about 2 years before it finally healed up. Cant imagine what living with a knee would be like if thats got that treatment!
                              Textile jackets have a habit of creeping up ya back when ya sliding as they dont tend to hold there shape like a decent leather jacket, I have road rash scars on my lower back to prove that, I know the attitude to decent kit in the states is a lot less thought about than here in the road clogged UK but its your skin and bones, personally myself ill do all i can to protect mine! Id never ride without wearing my sidi corsas, i rarely go out without my full leathers and if im just out for a bimble then i wear my hood jeans, but thats about it! Skin and tarmac is not a good combination!

                              cheers
