Hot off the Presses: Grizzly Killed by a Harley!

 

These are such amazing photos, I had to share….

Huge Grizzly Killed by Motorcycle **

~

I would’ve liked to see the expression on the biker’s face just before impact!! 

Can you believe a motorcycle killed this HUGE GRIZZLY?

~

This grizzly was hit by a Harley on Lolo Pass. This is the pass between Lolo, MT and Kooskia, ID.

Lolo Pass, elevation 5,233 feet (1,595 m), is a mountain pass in the northern Rocky Mountains on the border between the U.S. states of Montana and Idaho approximately 25 miles (40 km) west-southwest of Missoula, Montana.

It is famous as the location where the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed the summit of the Bitteroot Range via the Lolo Trail on their outward and return journeys in 1805–06.

Look at the claws on that sucker!

The biker spent three days in the hospital!

The hog’s a wreck (Harley Motorcycle)!

Lesson Learned: Don’t go Bear Hunting with a Harley, they only last one hunt!!

~

Second Lesson Learned: Thank Goodness the Rider was on a Harley Hog — Otherwise, He Probably Wouldn’t have Survived!

When a Motorcycle Meets a Cell Phone!

Amazing Photos

I’ve gotten a bit gun-shy about running ‘Amazing Photos.’  However, I’ve checked www.Snopes.com about this story’s urban-legend status.  It is not on Snopes’ radar. *

~

We now know that a cell phone had nothing to do with this particular wreck!  As part of my promise not to remove info that did not harm others (on my “Blog Policy” Page, I’m leaving this blog as-is.

Safety Topic…..

Do you see the motorcycle?

Everyone Died Instantly!

The Honda crotch rocket rider was traveling ~ 85 mph.

The VW driver was talking on a cell phone when she pulled out from a side street, apparently not seeing the motorcycle.

The rider’s reaction time was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident. The car had two passengers — and the bike rider was found INSIDE the car with them.

The Volkswagen actually flipped over from the force of impact and landed 20 feet from where the collision took place.

All three involved (two in the car and the bike rider) died instantly.

Pass this on to car drivers or ‘soon to be’ new drivers, or new motorcycle owners.

~

Wake up people!

Stop talking on your cell phones and texting while trying to drive.

Put your cell phone in the back seat !!!

Although I did not write this, I couldn’t agree more!

* It took a couple of hours, but I found the source of this story.  It happened in Sweden, in 2003!

27 May 2010:  Snopes says this is a mostly true story. Click on “Snopes” for the details. 

“The graphic display …  was placed at the Stockholm Motorcycle Fair by the Swedish Police and Road Safety Department. The sign above the display noted that the rider had only recently obtained his license.”

When I first posted this (10/13/09), I checked with Snopes and they had no info at all.
