Flying Motorcycle Attacks Rider At Track Day Event

While track day events tend to be a lot safer for riders than having to maneuver their way through traffic, the occasional accident does happen and they generally tend to occur at dangerously high speeds.

What goes on here is that one of the two riders in front made a gigantic mistake, running into the back of another motorcycle, which surprisingly enough, managed to keep going. Still, it resulted in one bike becoming airborn and flying towards the rider with the helmet cam.

We can only assume what went through the guy’s mind when he saw the roughly 330 lbs (150 kg) motorcycle blocking his way, with limited time to react.

In fact, here’s a question for all you bikers out there. Could the rider with the cam have avoided the accident or was it a case of not being able to anticipate what was about to happen?

There was no reason to assume that the two bikes at the front would collide, so once they did, any human being would have required a split second in order to register what has happened and calculate the trajectory of the two wheeled “projectile”.

    Both the picture and the heading are quite misleading. I was expecting a bike with nobody on it flying out of nowhere.

    Oh man, that had to have hurt for both riders. At least it was at the track.
