Train crushes motorbike abandoned on track

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by Mouth, Jul 14, 2015.

  1. "A MOTORCYCLE dumped on tracks near a station in Melbourne’s south west has been hit by a train, causing delays on two lines."

    Ref: Herald Sun

    Why would someone dump a bike on the tracks? Derailment attempt?
  2. Stolen/insurance job/vengeful spouse/druggo thought it was funny ... plenty of reasons, none of them good.
    • Agree Agree x 2
  3. Perhaps he was annoyed when his RC213v-s was dragged off at the lights by his mates GSXR1000?
  4. I'd guess bored teenagers?
  5. I guess its one way to change the seat height
    • Funny Funny x 3
  6. Probably broke down. Bought a Harley perhaps?
  7. Hipster couldn't find his grinder to take the tree off to change the rake, so he improvised.
  8. Because it wasn't as bad as dumping two bikes on the tracks?

    To not get to get to other side?

    Or maybe just ran out of petrol.
