ACT police seek help identifying speeding motorcyclists (240kph on the Parkway).

By farq 5 November 2008 90

ABC news has this interesting story on motorcycle escapades down the Tuggeranong Parkway.

2 riders, 240kph on the parkway…

Is that some sort of record?

Knowing the road through there quite well and the weather conditions, I just don’t believe they achieved the stated speeds. High 100’s: yes. 240 km/h plus: unlikely.

I didn’t mean it would stop it completely or minimise resources dramatically.

I was talking about this as an isolated event.

Yes, the near or actual loss of a life often elicits a chuckle from self-righteous fu#kwits such as yourself, as long as the person in question really “deserves” it. I wonder whether or not you’d gain a bit more perspective if someone close to you lost their life due to their active involvement in an all-too-human moment of stupidity?

Nope. Been there, done that, went to the funeral, and I still see amusement in topics you’d rather I didn’t.

or you were driving on the hay plain and saw a bike get “vortexed” – sucked straight under a semi – bits of bike everywhere on the road. Biker wasn’t dead, but pretty close, and it seemed an eternity before we could get help for him. (back in the day of brick mobile phones, no coverage) not pretty at all.

Riding an LS650 Savage, so sitting well back, and also trying to duck under the little bugger at the saame time 😉

Well this all adds a new dimension to biological warfare ….

The fact you almost fell off a bike is probably due to all kinds of things, but at a guess I’d suggest either your reactions, or leverage forces and your centres of balance. :\

The actual damage is related to force being exerted, size of the area impacted, and the resistance involved at impact.
(a bird with a smaller beak\point of impact expends its force on a smaller area, so increases the pressure exerted on that point)

I was in the back of a ute a down a highway driving at speed a great many moons ago, when I got hit in the forehead by some kind of bug.
It exploded, I bled some, and had to pick insect legs out of my face.
