Default Re: Motorcycle Fatality - A family needs help.

I'd like to hear Sportbikepilot's assessment of the kinetic energy necessary to launch an adult male 500 ft from a standstill. The 500 ft distance seems more plausible if the motorcycle was traveling at 60 mph when the accident occurred. VWW

Iceworm--

You're absolutely right. The photo doesn't tell all, but it at least raises the possibility that it occurred on the shoulder. Where the rider was stopped--in a traffic lane or on the shoulder--would make all the difference in the world.



Kpaul--

Darn, you figured it out. Just don't tell anyone--I've been able to maintain the lawyer hoax for 22 years.



And don't slam your own writing--it's actually very good. You just need to get in touch with your inner self and resolve those emotional issues . . . .

I'm surprised you didn't have your wife do this latest reponse, KGirlieman.

Why don't you run through the calculations for the rest of us? Also, I'd be interested in knowing how you believe parallax error factors into this and how you'd compensate for that in your analysis.



Thanks in advance for helping us out with this.

Are you sharing your wife or your wives? Wifes is not a word.

Pay no attention to this dolt boomgarden. Sportbikepilot is a professor of physics, and understands that there are more variables to calculating how far a body would be thrown than the simple equation that idiot boy would get from what ever physics primer he would consult before posting an analysis. You are apparently new to this site, and havenÂ’t yet learned to ignore this pesky trollbot. VWW
