  2. "..come off your motorbike at 80 kilometres an hour..."

    I gad! Who would travel at such terrible speeds?

    In the context of "This is what can happen at just 80km/h", its okay, though. 'Cause, someone who's wearing decent (or even basic) gear shouldn't suffer anything 'horrific' at that velocity.

  3. Yep, i came off at around 80 in kevlars and a cheap jacket and slid to safety. Not even a bruise. Although that'd be a lot different if you met a stationary obstacle.
