Bubby ji,

Very valid points. I'm definitely on the rasher side. I quite agree with your logic though.

Only thing - sometimes you get scraped in bad traffic. Its tough to avoid at times.

I totally agree with you on this point, i really appreciate it. But as you also said that you are controller of you vehicle and not for all other vehicles on road. However i feel you can not control other vehicles but you can influence them by driving safe

The above R1 was bought back to glory at joes garage, the owner had some serious injuries to his leg though. i don't think he owns this bike now.

@zibby:
Goes on to give proof that what happens if the insanely powerful bikes land in the hands of inexperienced. Although I dont the know owner, neither his experience, the way the bike was revved proves my point. There must be some rules on getting license for riding these hyper bikes. Normal license ( exam ) is not sufficient.

@ajmat :
What happened to Octavia ?
The roof seems to be hit also. Truck ramming or some excessive load falling on roof ?

Looks like a truck hitting right at the middle for the Octavia. The bent shape suggests so.

I think the Octavia got wrapped around a pole/tree.

This is a more likely scenario.
