Nasty Accident

A friend just e-mailed me these picts..........

A picture is worth a thousand words.

The Honda rider was traveling at such a "very high speed", his reaction
time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. Swedish Police
estimate a speed of ~250 KM/h before the bike hit the slow moving car
side-on at an intersection. At that speed, they predicted that the
rider's 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 rider was found INSIDE the car with them. 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.

What makes this even more tragic is the fact that there is one less RC30 now :(

I think you'll find that its not an RC30 but is, in fact, a VFR400. Which means it most likely wasn't doing 250kph, but they can get up over 200.
I dunno, that's an awfully large rear tire. Most people run a 150 or 160 on the VFR.
