    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!:deal

    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.

    The red bikes fault 100 % . In the center of the wrong lane.

    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.

    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.

    Well jeez, people keep saying the same wrong thing 205 times, LOL!

    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.

    You are speaking of which you know nothing.

    The photographers do more to help and keep the road safe than anyone else.

    You do know the name of this thread???

    The photos from a crash are free to the crasher, and he chose to post them himself.

    Climb down off of your high horse and take a breather.:deal

    If you go to the Snake thread, which has more videos of bikes crashing, you will see that the photogs rush to the fallen rider to see if they are ok. I'm willing to bet the same thing happened here.

    A friend from a couple of weeks ago. First thing we did AFTER checking on him was to see if he wanted pics taken. Wouldnt have been much different if we had been in place to film him prior to the crash.

    Maybe its our group of riders, but the agreement is to follow this scenario: "you alive? yes? ok, we are going to get pics"

    You do realize that this is the Killboy Failure Dragon Fest thread wherein our inmates discuss, ridicule and chuckle over mishaps and fails captured by the Killboy crew at The Dragon? And if the Bouncing Gremper in these photos didn't want them public, he and his buddy wouldn't have made them public?

    If you don't like it, don't read it..

    Bye-bye :wave

    Not to mention that the pics serve as a reminder to be extra cautious out there. The photogs have documented big trucks causing danger and helped push to keep them off of Deal's Gap. They often escort the trucks that do pass as do other riders.

    And they (or at least Killboy) organize clean ups of the road as well as keep a broom handy to sweep gravel kicked up by cars and bikes off of the road. Those evil photogs.

    Yeah, and if he had run up and found the guy had taken a highway peg to the neck and bled out he'd still have the pictures.

    Same scenario, different outcome, you run up to your buddy and he's fucked up bad or dead and a photog has pictures of the accident. How do you feel about it then?

    The guy got hurt, but he was lucky, it could have been worse. What if these were leaked pictures of a fatal accident? They easily could be. You have any kids? What if these were pictures of your kid breaking his leg at football practice? Or a broken arm tumbling off a balance beam? Yeah, in this instance it turned out OK and the guy who wrecked posted the pictures, but that's by chance. I don't rubberneck accidents, and every one of you who's eyeing those pictures is just digitally rubbernecking.

    It's bad karma to relish in the pain of others.
