Re: Amazing Crash Footage

My gut tells me it's NOT real ... but it sure is cool to watch. Then again, I love Spidey!

Re: Amazing Crash Footage

I'm thinking it's real, but intentional. For the glory of being shown worldwide, and all that. It looks like he's young enough and dumb enough to try it.

If it was real and accidental then that's the luckiest guy I've seen.

Re: Amazing Crash Footage

My buddy crashed his Harley into a Ford Explorer at about 60 mph when it turned left from the right lane on a two lane hwy. & he ended up on the roof hanging on to the cargo rack.

Re: Amazing Crash Footage

Real... seen it a number of times now.... the guy needs to buy a lottery ticket, and if he keeps riding --- learn to ride more safely instead of ducking and weaving at high speed.
Damn lucky it was only his bike that got trashed.
If it wasn't caught on dashcam no-one would believe it...

Re: Amazing Crash Footage

One of those one in a million things like the kid who flipped his vehicle, got ejected, and grabbed onto the overhead power line when he hit it and hung out there. Called his mom on the cell phone for help.

Re: Amazing Crash Footage

I saw someone posted the local newspaper article the next day on this miracle.
I think from Belarus. There is another video that was ABC news of a guy with a helmet cam in USA that landed on the top of the car and just got off the car when it stopped.
so Im voting for real thing.

45 years riding and still more places to see.
