Goldwing crash :-(

Pay attention when out on your Wing!! This guy ran a light and paid the price but it was interesting to see how the weight of the wing pushed the Volvo into the other car. Ride safe guys.

Amazing that the rider didn't seem to break any bones!! Should have bought a lottery ticket and a new wing immediately..

He was gambling, for sure - his light had gone red at least 1 full second before he got to the intersection. You can see the nose-down attitude of the bike just before impact - he was braking, hard. Waaay too late, though. Nonetheless, he's one of the luckiest riders around!! Ain't gonna help in his insurance settlement, though! With that video footage, he's sunk.

Good thing the second car was there. Me thinks the movement of the two cars softened the blow.

Goes to show we are at the bottom of the food chain on the road.

Ouch. It was like he was asleep, the light was clearly red, and he didn't even brake - just ran right into the side of the cars.
