    Uhm, if I told you my source, it could very well out me. Sorry, Oompa. But, I do know for a fact that he lived. Review my other posts and decide whether or not you feel I am credible.

    I had this emailed to me with a bunch of other pictures of the crash about 6 months ago. The story then was that his neck was snapped and he was dead. Sure doesn't look like he is alive to me.

    My first impression was that he is deceased. The ambulance is already there, parked on the street. Why isn't he being rushed to the hospital?

    He's dead. There are other photos of this guy from different angles. With the ambulance being there, they would be working on him instead of allowing some a'hole to snap photos.

    That guy hit the truck so hard that he bent the 'drop down' bumper

    Two men died this week in separate motorcycle crashes, including one in which a man slammed his cycle into the back of a truck on a Tulsa highway at more than 120 mph.

    ...Brandon Lee White, 26, of Broken Arrow, (Tulsa)

    The Tulsa collision happened about 1 a.m. Tuesday, Officer Jason Willingham said.

    Police said witnesses reported that White's motorcycle appeared to be going at least 120 mph when it crashed into the truck on U.S. 169 south of 81st Street.

    Police said the truck driver reported hearing a bump and then seeing debris from the motorcycle going past him. When he managed to pull over, he saw that a man was embedded in the back of his trailer, police said.

    White was dead at the scene.

    I am sorry if this "outs" you in any way, but that was a risk you took when
    you posted a unique, checkable story and made blatantly erroneous statements
    about it.

    I have no idea what point you were trying to make, but by either lying to us
    or by not even bothering to do the barest amount of research before posting,
    you have failed to make any point at all except one about the perils of Internet
    information sharing.

    wha happened?

    I had a friend who worked in the ER. They referred to them as donercycles. Ok fine but please wear a helmet. Some accidents might be survivable.

    The irony is that maybe if he hadn't been going so fast he may have landed in the road and had at least half a chance of surviving.

    But the advice in the topic heading is still valid - wear your motorcycle helmet! And if you're a cyclist (pedal powered) the same - wear a cycle helmet!!

    And cover up all the skin that you can too. A former work colleague of mine joined the police and his first fatal accident attendance was a motor cyclist - no helmet, wearing a t-shirt and shorts. He says the carnage was not pleasant.

    Being a motorcyclist myself, I was forwarded this story and photo last year. I honestly have no idea why you would fear being outed over something as trivial as this story on a jw board. Are the two somehow connected? And if you "know for a fact that he lived," would you care to maybe give us this guy's phone number so we can call and talk to him? As far as the "credible" comment, ummm, I believe you now know where you stand on that issue....

    I think we'll understand if you disappear from the board for a few days rather than explaining the contradictions presented.

    How about, wear your helmet and follow the speed limit signs.
