    Im going to guess he was either just run over (see the pillion is off her seat and in the back of the rider) or the bike in pic braked super hard to avoid old mate spinning like a top on the road.

    Jesus, how much does one of these bikes weigh?? So much impact the front collapsed, and the rear stays on the ground the entire time.

    N of 49 but actually S of 49 - it's complicated
    That's not the woman on the back of the red Harley, it's the guy on the other bike. At least he has a FF helmet on and sort of gloves. The red Harley woman may have landed on her well insulated mate.

    Fast. Awesome. Cool. Somewhat affordable. Looks to be an Ariel Atom (first series).

    That's what I thought at first, but the nose is wrong, and it doesnt have the pushrod suspension?

    Frame, rollcage and suspension are also unlike the Atom. Maybe it's just me but the whole vehicle appears to be smaller than an Atom also.

    Speaking of yellow jackets, they stung the hell out of me the other day up on my logging road. Got me a good ten times before I could get away.

    Ten times?:eek1 I was stung once in the neck the day before yesterday, hurt like hell and half of my face and neck was (and still is) grotesquely swollen.

    I was doing around 60mph and saw the little bastard come from the right, hit me right in the little unprotected patch of skin between helmet and leather jacket. It is a mystery to me how he managed to get me so good in the 1/100th of a second the impact lasted. Good reflexes I guess ... it was the first time something like this happened to me.

    Around 800lbs and the COG is pretty low. You are not getting a wheel off the ground without a ramp or precipitous cliff.
