Just Because: 136 M.P.H In-Your-Face Superbike Crash
I'll be completely honest here and admit that my knowledge of motorcycles begins and ends with the fact that the vast majority of them feature two wheels, a throttle and brakes. I'll also admit that the speed in which this guy is purported to be going when he does his best bug-on-a-windshield imitation is about 136 em-pee-achis faster than anything I've ever planted my ass in that doesn't have doors and a seat-belt.
With that being said even I know that my man must have a silver horseshoe wedged up his shitter, because he walked away from this little mishap relatively unharmed.
His bike? It landed somewhere in Tupelo, Mississippi.
CORRECTION: I originally had this guy going a staggering 220 miles per hour when he bit the dust, which is pretty much impossible. What it should have read was 220 kilometers per hour, which I then converted. Call it a brain fart.
