Speeding shouldn't be a death sentence.


The laws of physics disagree.

Mock26: jpo2269: Why does anyone "need" a motocycle that goes 125 mph?

Small penis.


actually, right after the accident the distance between the tip and base of his penis was likely about 1,500 yards...... That is pretty impressive.

Now see, if the bike had modified pipes, the officer would have heard him coming and wouldn't have pulled out in front of the bike.

Ok. I'll just start with you.

Cops have radios. He knew he was coming.


Wow, I guess I should feel honored, graced, or something.
Look, if this were a weekday, perhaps I would feel maybe some sort of privledged that you choose me first.
But as your luck would have it, its Saturday. So, well, now don't take this bad. But I don't feel any of those things.
So, look, come back, Mon-Fri, during business hours.
I'll see what I can do for ya.

unlikely: I'm probably among the more stupid speed junkies on Fark, I like topping a buck on the bike, but damn dude with a passenger... that's just stupid.

Wonder if he was wearing a helmet...


At that speed, the helmet's wearing you for protection.

Douchebag motorcyclist drives like a douchebag and gets killed as a result. Surprise!  Down here almost everyone has a "watch for motorcycles" bumper sticker. What we need is a "Motorcyclists, don't drive like a douchebag and you won't end up in a body bag" bumper sticker.

Why? As this case proves, it's a problem that solves itself.

Having been young and stupid at some point in my life, I was the back seater at 260km/h on a crotch rocket once (ok, maybe twice). It was legal, too, on the Autobahn. Good news is, if something happens, it'll just take a split second.

gmaki: why is everyone assuming the motorcycle was going 125 when it hit the cruiser? the article only says that the chase reached 125mph at one point. It's possible he was going much slower near the end. Of course you can't tell one way or another from the article.


actually the motorcycle was doing 0 MPH the moment it hit the cruiser that's why he got killed. He died because he bike did 0. He was just fine doing 125.

nickerj1: This is the second comment I've seen about "At that speed, he's pretty much dead anyway" which is completely false.  You can wipeout on a bike at 125mph and get up and walk away.  However, you do need to be wearing the proper gear, and you also need to have plenty of sliding room.


The article isn't talking about a smooth racetrack bordered by objects designed to be crashed into by a human body or people who are wearing professional grade protective gear.

A friend of mine lived on a street where a guy got a new bike, the first time he rode it, he severed his leg on a guardrail and died.

But this was florida, so the rider was wearing shorts, a t-shirt, and a doo-rag.

FTFA: Williamson's Suzuki hit the back of the cruiser...

Nope, typical Gixxer-squid.  If he had a helmet, it was strapped to the backseat area with his girlfriend's helmet.  And he was probably wearing cargo shorts and flip flops or shoes with no socks.  And a wife beater.

Look, clearly there are some farkers in here who belive that just because one time, - ok probably many times - the cops came upon their stash and confiscated it like the law says, that all cops are EEEvilllll.

In this case, yeah the cop probably should have been watching closer. But if you ask me, enabling Darwin should be rewarded. I'd have voted for spike strips. Yes spike stips. Yes on a motorcycle.

PreMortem: The cop intentionally pulled out in front of him. That is who was intentional. It wasn't negligence on the rider.

What the cop did was wrong. I'd gamble his lights weren't on either.


I hate cops too, but this isn't the thread to do our good work.

Anyone fleeing police puts innocent lives in danger. If the end result is only the perps death, it is no ones fault but the perps. Anyone who disagrees with this is wrong.

desertmouse: This could be derped back and forth all day (and this being Fark it will be) but they were both wrong.  Speeder was stupid for jeopardizing lives and cop was stupid for killing someone with his negligence.  No winners.  Except Darwin.
