Unhappy [NWS] Motorcycle Accident @ 120MPH - GRAPHICS

Normally I don't make threads about these things, but I know there are some of you that own bikes so let lesson be learned from this. This guy is wearing full gear too, Helmet, jacket, gloves, jeans, shoes that cover his ankle. Probably everything that's been said in the ""BOOK"". So don't let those things fool you and say well I'll be safe. Sometimes you won't just be dragged on the road. You'll be flying toward an object. May he rest in piece and family take it easy.

Tulsa - A Broken Arrow man was killed early Tuesday morning after a motorcycle accident on Highway 169 near 81st Street.

Witnesses say the cyclist was going faster than 100 miles per hour when he crashed into the back of a semi truck between 81st and 91st Street at about one o'clock Tuesday morning.

Investigators say evidence shows the cyclist was going about 120 miles per hour at the time of the impact. It took the truck driver more than a quarter of a mile to come to a stop. When he did, he stepped out of his rig and found the motorcyclist dead at the back of the truck.

"The truck driver was not hurt," says Captain Matt Kirkland. "He said that the impact was so strong that he thought he was hit from behind by another truck."

Officers said there was no indication that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the accident.
