    I just purchased a Corvette and one of the guys on the corvette forum said that he got into an accident a few days ago with a motorcycle.

    Here are the pictures
    .

    What do you think happened?

    I think the vette owner will be upgrading to a new C6, courtesy of Mr Cruiser.

    I think the guy on the Harley was thinking too much about the camera and not enough on the turn... He waved, saw he was going too wide, than straightened out and crashed.

    His bike was too unwieldy for the corner.
    He was trying to corner one handed.
    He's retarded.
    He hates corvettes.
    He overestimated his ability.

    True. A Harley would have made that corner at over twice the speed he was going.

    Well to me it looks like he dragged the right side when he was more worried about waving. That led to kicking him upright and throwing him into the on coming lane. Then from there target fixation took over. I have ridden the dragons tail before and its not a road for beginners or lack of concentration. Just my 2 cents.
    And yes it is a Trumpet and not a Harley.

    In too hot, panic, target fixate, sit up, and eat Vette. Should have kept leaning, the Vette was headed off the road to avoid him.

    Looks like he was lucky the Vette was there to stop him from flying off the road at speed and hitting a tree... crazy....
