At 6.50pm I was riding up Nicholson Rd (500m from Thomas Rd junction) and a guy riding what looked like a blue R1 or R6 was on the side of the road - not moving. The bike was totally destroyed, the fuel tank was about 15m from the bike, and the front wheel was totally smashed.
Looked like it had only just happened as there was only one cop car and no ambo's.
I have no idea how it happened but as there were no side roads it could have been a head-on.
Hopefully it'll be on the news soon........here's wishing the guy well.... :cry:

I doubt it was miss stocky's.
They said on the radio the bike had been stolen a few hours earlier from the city.

I went past the accident scene at 7.20pm and was stopped by police to let the ambo out, the ambo wasn't in a hurry so I was thinking "not good".
I didn't see the bike but seen the car and all the occupants sitting on the side of the road. The bike had hit a 4x2 dual cab hilux on the drivers side passenger door......t-boned the car. Those people now have to live with that for the rest of their life, regardless if the bike was stolen or not!!

The other sad side of this accident is it happened outside "Brockmans Riding School' (horses) and her son was a top motocross bike rider and was competiting in the USA, he fell off and is now a parapalegic. So I'm hoping she didn't have to see the mess outside her front door!!

I take it the driver of the hilux 'didn't see him'.

spose he woulda been fairly movin though...

Another reminder to slow down I guess.. that shit can happen to anyone..

you have to remember oblivion any vehicle travelling at 150kph is covering ground at 41 metres per second and five seconds is 250 metres
at night you see a single light at 250 you would turn if front of it and not be too worried about being in a hurry.


at 60kph you travel at 16 metres per second and you would not turn slowly in front of a light 60 metres away



bikes have to remember that cages are not used to the acceleration bikes get and cannot judge if it is going 60..100.150 towards them
dont get me wrong i like riding as fast as my bike goes.


feel the the lady and her son

Good words Craig.

And everyone please remember these figures when your blasting along the roads.Unless you do it regularly, you or cage drivers cannot be excpected to be able to judge these sort of speed increases.

If you keep this in mind you may be better prepared for the situation.

Good work guys with those figures, definatly true.

I still agree with you Gordo though, if he hadnt of stolen the bike he would still be alive and those poor people in the car would not of had to experience what they did, fuggin tool.

If theiving bastards would just respect other people's property then none of this would of happened and th bike community would not of had to have another mark against its name :x

why didn't you stop????

Anyways, the lady who runs Brockman's was a regular customer where i worked at Coles. I hope she's ok...

the world is full of fuckheads...doesn't mean they deserve to die. if he copped a good beating or got pretty messed up but not killed you'd say it was fair enough. murderers, rapists and paedophiles deserve that, not bike thieves. would you feel the same if a mate of yours choked to death on a snickers bar he stole from the corner deli when he was in year eight??? (pretty tenuous link i know - but you hopefully get my point)

at the end of the day everybody that "drives" a vehicle knows that if you are going to exceed the speed limit by alot then sooner or later you are going to be unlucky.

the other day on the same road doing my usall 10k's over a new gsxr comes flying past me ALOT faster. by all means do it as its a hell of fun but do it at your own risk

Jarrid, when you have had your house broken into, your Jet Boat and all your ski gear stolen, your WRX's window smashed and things stolen, your S2000's roof slashed and things stolen, your Scooter Stolen and your 10 month old GSX-R1000 stolen you may change your opinion on this.

I work years to afford the things that some fucker takes in 5 mins.

The guy deserves everything he got. May he rot in hell. Twice. :x

The paper stated the bike was stolen. Stopped yesterday to have a look and from the skid marks on the road it looks as if the bike was overtaking others and the car may have been turning and he didn't see it......WACk......bits of bike in the bushes.

In some peoples eyes he may have deserved it but death is a rather harsh penality. The people who will suffer are the persons in the vehicle, witnesses and the family/friends of the victim.

I do feel for the car occupants and witness's but our justice system can't stop these fuckers but hopefully trees and trucks might .

if he did not steal it and was not flogging down the road he would not be dead

his fault

do the crime pay the fine

death is final but not our fault HIS

he caused the victims no-one else

p.s
we all know the result of excess speed no-one but ourselves make us do it but we still all do it
life is for living you are a long time dead

Okay I havent read whole thread but I can shed some light on this.

A guy that went to my gym had his R1 stolen on saturday outside the CBD Health spa on peir st while he was at gym down the road (near woolies)...

He is lucky he had it insured but not the aftermarket bits he had on it, also it was a 1999 model that done 8,000kms and was immaculate!

As far as I know it was a head on with a truck.

Rest of it you know...

RIP, stealing does not warrant death and I feel for this misguided souls family and friends, but stupid decisions lead to tragic consequences.
