Came across this while going through a pile of old bike mags I've been given. Horrendous crash. No details were given about the rider but judging by the state of the bike..... :sad: :sad:

Hope it was the hip that impacted the roof. I saw the aftermath of a head on with a GS1100 and a mac truck the driver of the bike walked away with a little cut on his elbow. He was venting about his bike instead of being thankful ref. his life.

Yes, i've seen that photo as well. but many, many years ago. It must've been at least 15 years ago.
But you'd have to say if whoever was riding that bike is still alive, they're extremely lucky!
