We're a horrible lot, laughing at others' misfortune.

(But that's because we are just thankful it wasn't us.)

 

 

I'd hate to come around a corner and encounter that lot.

I'm

not laughing Ninja.....

Just posting it due to its' bike-related-ness...!!

I must admit I do find such things truly fascinating as a biker.. Facing up to the possibilities... It's therapeutic in its' own way. I think to bury your head in the sand and not accept these things is foolhardy!

Sos to be all serious.. (most unlike me)... but really... I would never laugh at it... never, and am seriously happy no-one died!

See the guy in the blue top leaping out the way too!!


As kcmc says, look at the missing boots! Ffs, I have enough trouble getting mine on and off when they're undone, can't imagine the forces required to rip them off whist done up?

How did his feet not go with them?.....:blink:

I remember a few years ago when watching at the TT, we were stuck on the inside of the track.

One of the marshalls told us that if there is a crash at the viewing point not to approach the rider as he will be too wired.

 

I am so glad | wasn't in the vicinity of this accident:shock:

 

Very lucky.  The boots may have malfunctioned as in all probability they should of taken his feet with them I'd have thought:upset:

The human body...

is a LOT tougher than you're giving it cradit for.... Have you any idea how much force it would need to 'pull' someone's foot off???

Trust me the clasps/stitches/straps on the boots will give way long before a leg or foot will....




Anyway...... Mmmmmmmm... Brekky time!!   :laugh:

i think he needs to buy new / better boots as the boots should not brake off like that. both riders were lucky
