    ...like this guy did, literally. This happened near my house on a usually busy three-lane boulevard. Crash forensics estimated his speed at impact @ 130 mph. He was wearing a full-face yet his jaw was found 700 feet from the scene.

    Don't be stupid.

    The driver was the only occupant in the car. She was hospitalized for two days and released with a couple broken bones and heavy bruising. She is lucky as hell.

    Yeah, given the crush depth, tach (was stuck at 13K rpm), gearing (in 5th gear), and a bunch of other factors in physics they estimated 130, but one of the guys I said said it's very possible he was going 150+. It's a gixxer 750 so it was very possible given that particular stretch of road.

    yeah, don't... you could go head to head with the smallest of cars and you'll lose every time on a bike.
