"Witnesses say the cyclist was going faster than 100 miles per hour when he crashed into the back of a semi truck between 81st and 91st Street at about one o'clock Tuesday morning.

Investigators say evidence shows the cyclist was going about 120 miles per hour at the time of the impact. It took the truck driver more than a quarter of a mile to come to a stop. When he did, he stepped out of his rig and found the motorcyclist dead at the back of the truck.

'The truck driver was not hurt,' says Captain Matt Kirkland. 'He said that the impact was so strong that he thought he was hit from behind by another truck.'

Officers said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the accident."

Offical news date: Sometime in late 2007.

So here's what happened...

I bet the last thing he was thinking was "oh shit OH SHIT OH SHIT SHIT SHIT!!!!"

Guest | 29 Jul 2011 - 21:34
Yes its a shame he died but he took the gamble and lost. people make cruel jokes about things like this all the time, but you have to wonder what was he thinking? The only up side to this is he didn't hurt somebody else

HondaRacer9 | 29 Jul 2011 - 00:56
You guys are all assholes. He obviously had some footwear on, they probably fell off. Go big or Go home.

Dawgs | 28 Jul 2011 - 00:39
Cruiser riders are weiners and crotch rocket riders are morans.

Dualsport riders are gods. tongue

David O | 26 Jul 2011 - 17:47

Guest | 25 Jul 2011 - 19:29
We all die and it is a shame to be mocked in death. angry Perhaps he was rear-ended and hit the truck or other unfortunate happening but this does not matter he was a brother and deserves better than this shameful mocking.

Guest | 22 Jul 2011 - 23:01
when you crash the first thing you loose is your shoes.. when I crashed I got up, stood in the road and my shoes and socks were gone, I was fine.. but Where the hell did my shoes go! my buddy ended up finding them in the ditch.. lol

He did, in fact, die.

Some Dude | 6 Feb 2010 - 01:22
Huh, every time I see some douche on a bike going that fast I wish for this to happen. Sweet!!

Guest | 3 Feb 2010 - 00:37
FAIL

Guest | 10 Aug 2009 - 02:03
Good thing he was wearing a helmet

Kid | 29 Jun 2009 - 20:30
To lillsorken i think he sure as hell is dead because it lookslike his neck broke and his back and probably every other bone and look at the bike

Lillsorken! | 5 May 2009 - 17:06
Did... hm, did he die?

nicholai | 19 Mar 2009 - 20:25
where the hell is his shoes?

wiaan | 8 Jan 2009 - 14:34
nice one scott!! laughing

Joe | 12 Sep 2008 - 02:43
This is from a long time ago but this page is only from 9 Aug.

Scott | 11 Sep 2008 - 20:24
Why is this a cafe vs. Cruiser spat? A man is dead because he didn't know how to properly ride what he was on. 120 on a sport bike or 95 on a cruiser is still dead if something goes bad. Ride within your limits and take a course, unless you want us blogging about you.

Will | 9 Sep 2008 - 21:21
well, i don't think his safety gear kept him safe from his stupidity. but then again going that fast it doesn't matter too much does it.

rob | 9 Sep 2008 - 21:17
not matter how stupidly fast you decide to go no one deserves to die for it + cruiser's suck seriously ...... supersports or what you americans call crotchrockets are so much more fun + alot nicer through the bends cruisers are for fat old men who cant fit on a real bike (i got more respect for them than the cagers thow)

db | 19 Aug 2008 - 17:31
All of you are @ssholes. Are you serious? Yes he was wrong for speeding, but their is a point where your reaction to death need be a lot more mature. This was someones son, brother and possibly father. If he deserved to die, guess what;
Dale
Unknown (coward)
Dave
Yar
You 4 deserve to die, and I look forward to reading about the day you do. The rest of you are pretty funny.

yar | 15 Aug 2008 - 16:50
japanese sport bike.... going 120 on highway.... he deserves it... thanks for raising the insurance rates for the rest of us douche. i have racebike and i go to the racetrack if i want to go fast. going fast in a straight line is boring. if he died going 120 thru turn 12 at VIR, i'd have respect, since he'd have full gear on (pants and boots on top of everything else) and it would be on a turn on a closed course. (i know,... its hard to kill yourself on a racetrack, unless you run into something somehow, these days they are built with motorcycles in mind.)

Ajit | 14 Aug 2008 - 16:18
Its very Sad,We dont want to see it again.

| 12 Aug 2008 - 20:47
Dave, pretty sure the boots got ripped off.

TXSteve, read the article..."It took the truck driver more than a quarter of a mile to come to a stop. When he did, he stepped out of his rig and found the motorcyclist dead at the back of the truck."

| 11 Aug 2008 - 22:39
Cata - best comment ever.

Cata | 11 Aug 2008 - 20:31
Someone should have told him that he can also track his package online.

Dodgy Pete | 10 Aug 2008 - 12:37
Cruisers are strap on cocks for all the lawyers, accountants and chiropractors who want to play dress up and pretend that they're men on the weekend.

High horsepower street bikes are the two wheeled equivalent of mega horsepower cars. Without proper skill and safety training the average driver has no business owning or riding one.

Chris F. | 10 Aug 2008 - 12:37
I do not think this is the way to inspect what is inside of a trailer.

TXSteve | 10 Aug 2008 - 00:05
So......did he survive?

dave | 9 Aug 2008 - 22:05
dumbass didnt have any boots on. no wonder he was doing 120. probs couldnt step down his gears laughing

Clifford | 9 Aug 2008 - 22:01
Dale is an idiot. Cruisers can go that fast. However, the cruiser culture is to ride safely as opposed to the crotchrocket culture.

Unknown | 9 Aug 2008 - 02:15
AHAHA good for that noob he deserves that for speeding like an idiot

| 8 Aug 2008 - 21:12
ride a cruiser they don't go that fast....dumbass
