    I'm serious - this is NOT for the faint of heart.

    When things go bad riding a motorocycle with inadequate safety gear.
    Don't know if it's real or a mock-up - but it's not for the squeamish!

    Sorry it's only a powerpoint file - you can download a viewer from M$
    if you don't have the program itself.

    From what i'm reading here, it's the pics of a guy who was wearing
    shorts & t-shirt, was riding a KTM motard & was torn in 2 when he
    wrapped himself around a pole. If that's the one, I saw it about 4mths
    ago, And not in a hurry to see it again.
    Saying it's not for the squeamish is an understatement! I recon it's
    bad enough to put some people off riding motorbikes!

    Coz let's face it; had he been wearing leathers he would've walked away
    with hardly a scratch.....

    Funny how people always talk about being put off perceived dangerous
    passtimes by the bad stories yet noone seems to get put off driving
    their safe cars (or Taragos) despite the daily "yet another road
    fatality, probably due to speeding" news stories.

    People who think enough about their riding to wear leathers are unlikely to
    do anything so stupid as to result in dismemberment.

    There might actually be more logic to it than appears - the Hurt study found
    that riders who wear helmets are involved in fewer accidents than those who
    don't. Seems they have a "safer" approach??
