    Default This is totally shocking! Bikers Beware!

    The Swedish Police had this vehicle/bike "cleaned out" on completion of
    their investigations and put it back together to show what can happen in a motorcycle accident.

    The Honda rider was traveling at such "very high speed", his reaction time
    was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. Swedish Police estimate
    a speed of ~250 KM/h (155 MPH) before the bike hit the slow moving car side on at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the riders reaction time once the vehicle came into view wasn't sufficient enough for him to even apply the brakes.

    The car had two passengers and the bike and rider
    were found INSIDE the car.

    The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed
    10 feet from where the collision took place. All three involved (two in car
    and rider) were killed instantly.

    This graphic demonstration was placed at the
    Stockholm Motorcycle Fair by the Swedish Police and Road safety Department.

    The sign above the display also noted that the rider had only recently
    obtained his license.

    Thats very good. They should do more over here to demonstrate what happens in a high speed crash.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thats been doing the rounds on the internet for a very long time.

    A lot of folk instantly debunk it as a "set up" but its not.

    The collision did take place.

    I've got a link to the report on it somewhere kicking around I'll try and find.
