Damn sorry to hear that. To make it worse, it wasnt you that totaled the bike but im glad your friend is ok.

I know its not the right time to ask but how was the flash? How fast was he going before the truck pulled out? The damage looks pretty bad.

Just to confirm this is not my bike or friend but a facebook follower. Sad for both and wish the rider a speedy recovery.

Not sure I would publicly talk about the bike just having been flashed as it might create issues with insurance if they hear about it. Hopefully he'll recover soon and fully.

I hope the rider recovers quickly. looks like the bike was written off faster than it took to receive the bloody thing with all the delays on deliveries. Hope they get a replacement before the season is over.

A truck pull out in front of him? A truck accelerates like a snail.

How much was he going ? 300kph?
