motorcycle head on/lowside crash

  1. well that sucks.

  2. dayum. so what happened? from here it looks like the other guy was just leaning to far, and too much of the bike contacted the ground.
  3. Hard to say with any confidence. The 2nd bike is too far over and already wide when it comes into view, and if he hasn't lost the front before the 1st bike moves across in front of him and blocks the view, he's certainly lost it by the time he comes back into view. Just going a wee bit too fast I'd say. Asked just a tiny bit more from the front tyre than it had to give. It might be as simple as he ran onto the paint on the centre lines.
  4. The guy who hit him was squidding, ouch :X

    Looks like it may have been a deceptive corner and the two guys were inexperienced riders, they both freaked when they saw oncoming riders and sat up on their bikes.
