    I have to give You a tragic message :( Tragedy in Poland. Death of Tourists from Finland. They were riding a motorcycle. The accident happened yesterday (07.07.2017), about. 14:10. The Opel Corsa drove to the opposite lane and crashed into a motorcycle. Unfortunately, Finnish Tourists - women and men - who were riding a motorcycle were killed. After the collision, the engine ignited. On the road were difficult conditions, it was raining.

    As with all such stories of moto-tragedies, very sorry to read this. One can only hope that the end came quickly for them, and that justice will be done to the car driver.

    Seems seriously wrong to "like" your post, but I do appreciate your posting that sad news.

    Thank you from the top of Virginia.

    Very sad. Was that axtually a head-on collision with the car? The MC certainly looks like it's been pretty much blown to pieces.

    That is a real nightmare situation, an oncoming car suddenly gets in your way. Probably not a thing the rider could do here.

    As tragic as it was, posting news articles about crashes unrelated to members of this site is not allowed in Face Plant. Moved to Perfect Line.
