    Wow, simply wow. Did the GSXR rider even make it out alive? The impact of the BMW into the GXSR actually snapped off the front of the frame! Looks like the BMW rider broke his arm or wrist on the eventual landing. Good thing he was wearing all the gear he had on, would have been much worse without the gear.

    He broke left arm you see him crawling off the pavement and later taken in the ambulance close to the end of the of the footage.

    Edit: after re-reading your post bummer crashed 1st and gixxer came on top of him so the guy with broken arm is a gixxer rider. Hopefully bike took most of the hit and protected BMW rider and he survived the ordeal.

    Surprised how gixxer desintegrated into pieces flying tank, broken frame, etc

    Ouch! That was a hard hit.

    Looks like another version of LA's Rock Store...

    Horrific! I saw both of them moving after the crash so hopefully they both lived.
    Oddest thing, at the end of the video watching that guy operate the truck lift wearing flip flops made my toes curl up under my feet.

    I thought you were talking about a BMW car. Bimmer is a car.

    I'm amazed how many different cameras caught this crash.

    The license plates in chinese so guessing Taiwan or Mainland. Probably mainland as they were driving on right side.

    Did you notice the sound of the GSXR rider's helmet smacking the ground? That was harsh!

    It was more like "sh!t this is not happening".. you can see his left arm broken when he tried to crawl off the road.

    Made me wonder how far ahead he was looking as it didn't sound like he hit the brakes soon enough.

    You have to love Google to change "fate" to "date".
