Just got this in email.... don't know if repostahhhh

----------

Her last call was from a new cell phone...

Do you see the motorcycle?



Now do you see it?








The Honda crotch rocket rider was travelling 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..

Pass this on to car drivers or soon to be new drivers, or new motorcycle owners AND ESPECIALLY EVERYONE YOU KNOW WHO HAS A CELL PHONE!!!!!
A picture is worth a thousand words.

Save a life?

Stop talking on Cell phones and Texting while trying to drive.
The life you save may be your own..... or mine...

Well tecnicly this is a new forum so its not a repost..... but it is if you include the old forum.
Its also Bullshit.
From memory this was a staged accident by sweedish police.
There is no way that the bike could flip a car making it LAND 20meters away and wouldnt there not be bits of people left inside it?

Now guess the bike?
I reckon its a VFR400 with dymags.

+1 for staged... the interior wouldn't be clean thats for sure...

It is a good argument for a shaped charge system to protect motorcyclists from car drivers though... I reckon a couple of kgs on the front of the bike and you'd be able to cut a normal sized car in half :D

I think the last time this was posted it was established that the bike was an RC30?

Anyway, I don't think the fact that it looks too clean means that it was staged though, if it was going to be placed on display for road safety purposes, it's pretty unlikely it would've been displayed with the human remains still inside guys...

i've seen this quite a few times now, once as a warning for speeding "bike was doing over 200kph, no chance of stopping". "the car driver failed to look for motorbikes" and now this one.

My initial thought was that it looked like there hadn't been any attempt to remove anything... that being said, I've had another look and noticed that the A pillars and the floorpan have been cut so that it can be pulled apart and reassembled...

I'm still suspicious as to its origin but that does throw it a bit more open.

A similare accident happened in South Brisbane, place called Capalaba... Biker giving it a go on a main Rd, Hilux was stopped at a green light to cross his path where you just have to make sure it's clear, turning right...

Bike flipped the Lux on impacted coz of the speed it was doing... this was about 7 years ago now..

But very sad...

If it was real, how did it enter in sideways? At a glance it looks like the passenger door hinge is bent outwards, if the impact was real it should of bent inwards. The impact would of riped the passenger seat off its bolts. Cool pick though and a good conversation piece. I say the bike is a 89 vfr rc30

Don't diss physics.
Assume the bike is traveling at 85 mph which is about 38 m/s and weighs 192 kg.
That means it has a kinetic energy of 138 kJ.

If the VW Golf was a giant bowling ball it would be rolling at 30 mph after the collision.

For comparison a .50 cal BMG round has a kinetic muzzle energy of approximately 15 kJ.

In the assassination of Alfred Herrhausen a copper plate of approximately 2 kg was blasted at an armoured Mercedes by 20 kg of high explosives at an estimated 2000 m/s.
The result is in the 4000 kJ range.
The (now deformed) copper plate punched through the passenger door, severed the mans legs, and I assume went out the other side. In the mean while the armoured Merc was picked up and rotated 520 degrees while doing a barrel roll


Granted the bike is much larger than a bullet or a supersonic plate of copper but these are serious amounts of force!
