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)

Hopefully we can get enough people "helping" that we can suck up all the oxygen.

Since you're so sure that no one called 911 and that no one was offering help, I'm sure that the guy next in line was a doctor and his wife is an RN, and the guy behind him is a dentist, and the guy next is the "can you hear me now" guy from Verizon, so everyone is pretty much covered so why not snap a photo or two?

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

Okey Dokey. Next time either of you crash I hope someone is there to get pictures so your pain and suffering can be gawked at by a bunch of strangers on the internet. Nothing like deriving entertainment from other people's pain. Hey, while we're at it, why not a photo sequence of their children when they get informed of their parents injuries! That'd be a fucking hoot! Even better, what if someone DIES! Wow, a fucking gold mine! We can do the reveal to the grieving family, the sobbing people graveside, there's no end of entertainment value!

Yeah, fine, maybe he couldn't have helped them, but he certainly could have showed a little respect to their pain and suffering.

True, because there are a lot of fucking idiots that can't focus for the duration of the ride instead of grandstanding!

DOH!

We have been over this and over this.

THERE IS NO CENTER LINE AT THAT POINT DUE TO AN ACCESS ROAD COMING IN FROM THE SIDE. You can't see a center line because there isn't one. In the 2nd pic the START of the line can be seen about a foot behind the rear tire of the red bike, in its shadow. The red bike is very close to the line but the tires are not over it.

Have you ever bothered to think that maybe at some point those photos could be used in an accident reconstruction?

From beginning to end, the photos encompass maybe 5 seconds.

But you naturally assume that after the photos were taken that the photog didn't put the camera down and start assisting at the scene. From what I've read on this thread, that is totally not the fucking case.

THERE IS NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY IN PUBLIC.

That road is a public place. What the photogs are doing is not against the law.

Better not let the police take photos of a crime scene, because I guaran-damn-tee you those pics will end up on the internet.

Whassamatta, has babby never seen a gore thread on an image board?

Welcome to the internet.

All the pics happened in about 2 seconds, what help could he have given? The photogs track moving bikes and shoot continuously. The photog was tracking the oncoming red bike with the camera running and HAPPENED catch a head-on. The photos would be valuable evidence for law enforcement, insurance settlement and lawsuit if need be.

Not like whoever took THOSE pics said "hey, there's a head-on! I'm gonna go take a pic of it!" Maybe the next guy to drive up, but not the ones posted.

Doh. NO IT ISN'T. Look in the 2nd pic for the START of the double yellow, just behind the back tire of the red bike, in its shadow. You can't see a double yellow in the 1st pic because THERE ISN'T ONE, it's an intersection with an access road coming in from the side.

Welcome to the internet.
Yeah, that's a real tricky accident reconstruction. Hmm, two bikes, each facing different directions, in one lane. If the cops need photos for an accident reconstruction they need a new line of work.

No, it's not against the law, but it's pretty hard on common decency. It is against the law for police to release crime scene photos.

Flip it around, someone could have died in that accident. 1500lbs of motorcycle sliding around can do some damage.

So, it's you, you are hurt, maybe dead (broken ribs can do a lot of internal damage). And your pictures end up on the internet because some unscrupulous photog thinks they entertaining. And your kids, or your widow, or your parents see it. Welcome to the internet.

I can't see a centerline, he must be over it. They can't think of any other explanation?

That and the fact that the guy on the red bike is the one who posted the pics of his crash on that other forum.

If this is 129 i don't think its a road maybe a pull off. I'm pretty sure there is only one road entering 129 in the eleven miles and its on the other side. But i could be wrong .

Do pull offs have road signs?



BTW, I once heard about how you should keep beating a dead (iron)horse over and over and over again.
