Warning: Graphic



A truck was traveling down the highway around 1:00 a.m. near Tulsa,
Oklahoma.

A motorcyclist was traveling at 120 mph and ran into the back of the
moving semi-truck.

Truck driver said he felt the impact, but it took almost a 1/4 mile to
pull over.

This is what he found... (Real Photos, somewhat graphic.)

Be sure to scroll all the way down...

YES, that's the biker in the photo above...

This is what's left of the biker's high performance 'crotch rocket'...

Believe it or not, this bozo LIVED... wear your helmet!

Man... Well, at least he doesn't have any roadrash! Smart move with the leathers, long pants and head gear! But dang. Knocked him outta his shoes! WOW!

I've had my share of close calls on a bike... And yes, I had a crotch rocket. None of which were my fault.

The key to survival on a bike of any kind is to respect the bike and somewhat fear it. Because, it will kill you quick if you don't.

This guy was lucky, if he lived... Although, he really doesn't look "alive" to me! I mean, if he were, there would be a whole gang of EMS personnel around him. No one is supporting his body weight to protect his C-spine... And judging just from his overall appearance, he's lifeless. Looks like the impact hyper extended his neck and severed his spinal cord probably around C1 and C2...

Yeah - that dude was DRT. Kinda odd that the OP could figure that our from the picture. From now on, remember - if your noggin is imbedded into the back of a semi and your feet have been partially ground off while being drug, chances are you don't live through it.

120 on that bike might have been 3rd/4th Gear?. Its not hard to get to that speed on one. At that speed doesn't matter what you are in/on, its going to be hard to walk away from the back end of a Semi. Period.
