Strap is attached. That's why it comes out next to the d-rings. Seeing fivehead is bad though.

+1! My first thoughts too. He's either a good rider or lucky or both.

Seems more a matter of the fates deciding his time was up - he came around a turn, driving in a normal manner on his side of the road, to face an unexpected crash sliding *across* his lane. I doubt many of us would have been able to avoid contact, no matter what evasive action was taken.


The Silver bike was not down and sliding.

They hit almost head on.

See the red helmet between the rider and his wife...that is the silver bike rider going through the air.

The second bike did not run over the silver bike rider.

Christ. Will you fucks go to the original link at look at the whole series of pics before making stupid comments? Neither bike slid or highsided or lowsided. They fucking crashed into eachother in an offset head-on. This caused the bikes to rotate and flip.

Coming into the corner where the collision occurred, the silver bike had just come down a fairly long downhill straight. He probably just gassed it down the straight then maybe he was afraid to use the front brake and went into that curve too hot and ran wide. That curve is also somewhat deceptive due to the road that branches off in the middle of that curve. I'm sure there have been numerous crashes at that curve, I've seen at least one. The photographer was risking his life set up on the outside of that curve. But then, other photographers also set up on the outside of curves. I'm surprised non have them been taken out by crashing bikes or even cars.

These guys are right in the potential crash zone:

There can be a lot of speculation about who coulda/shouda done what to avoid that head-on but the point of impact is very close to, if not directly over, the center line so both of those bike were not where they should have been.

Making a habit of hovering around the center line is just playing with a loaded gun. Like someone hinted at a few pages ago, maybe these guys got away with it thousands of times. Realistically though it's a REALLY bad habit to get into because you're setting yourself up to be at the mercy of some stranger coming from the other direction. The guy on the red bike MAY have been in his lane but it was by inches at most so the silver bike only had to blow the corner by a tiny amount for this to happen. Mr. Red Bike is lucky it wasn't a car drifting 6 inches over the line.

If I can help I will, if I can't I'm not going to try.

As for blaming a photog for taking photos instead of "helping" because someone is "sure" that no one has done anything.

They still look gay.
We prefer the terms "forward" "prop" or "lock" or "Fat fuck who will kick the shit out of the opposing flanker for cheap shotting my scrawny ass"

Usually the last term is most common on the field. (Says the 280lb lock)
