Yeah he survived. Supposedly has 18 broken bones and will be confined to a wheelchair for awhile. Happened somewhere in the S.F. Bay Area. I got the pic from a thread on Bay Area Riders Forum. The bike is at a shop in Petaluma for a crash estimate. The shop owner said, "Basically, the only useable parts are the shock and rear caliper. Everything else was damaged in some way. The collision was so severe one of the cam caps broke- that's under the valve cover. The titanium header pipes were torn open like they were made out of cardboard".

Yikes, never even got the reflectors off.
Is that a Temp Tag hanging back there? Looks like plastic.

That was the feeling I had.

Rollie Free hit 148 on the Vincent Black Shadow at Bonneville.
He KNEW it could do 150 so he stripped down and did 150 like that.
Must have hurt- as big as his balls had to have been!

Damn -I forgot to call dibs, oil cap is all yours.:wink:
