It doesn't look like the tire actually ran over the helmet. It appears it just clipped the top and spit it out. The tire seems to have just barely hit the helmet. I can guarantee that there's no motorcycle helmet made for a human head that wouldn't crush under the weight of just the weight of the dual tires much less the load of the axle and load.

Looks like that guy was a dare devil or a fool. Probably both.

If you clicked on "More" in the description, you would learn that he died right there. He lived for a matter of seconds before he laid down and died. So sad and so stupid. I was taught from the time I started riding a bicycle to never get close to trucks. Even when riding my Goldwing, I didn't dwell in the vicinity of a semi-truck.

I read down to the bottom of the page and still couldn't determine whether or not the poor guy died.

I hope he made it and lives to learn not to do THAT again.

I haven't watched a snuff film since Faces of Death when I was in my 20's. Now I feel kinda terrible for what I said, because I was assuming he lived. Either way, dont mess with big trucks!

I can vouch for the idea to keep away from large vehicles when on a bike of any type. I drove school buses and charter buses for ten years after I retired. I can tell you it's not easy to see everything around you especially to the immediate rear. Perhaps they are putting rear view cameras on buses now, we sure needed them in cities.

I almost squashed a bicycle rider in Seattle one time. I was making a right turn on a green light downtown when an idiot on a bicycle tried to pass me down the right side of the bus. He was below the angle I could see him through my right side mirror and apparently didn't see the big flashing turn signal on the rear of the bus or the one midway on the right side either. He got knocked off his bike and luckily for him all six wheel on the back didn't pass over him. Lucky for me a LEO on the beat saw what happened and detained the rider and waved me on.

Some drivers are complete idiots. I've had a guy in a Prius try to 'brake check' my bus on the freeway once. Not a good idea trying to make a 56,000lb vehicle stop on a dime. Then there was the car backing out of a freeway exit on dark and rainy night. Or the guy passing my bus on I5 in a 70mph zone playing the flute, steering with his knees using the steering wheel as a music stand for his sheet music. You see a lot from a bus or truck on the highway. Lots that you don't want to see.

Well, seeing as he did live I hope he's just a little bit smarter. But then again maybe he thinks he can do better next time and give it another try. How's the old saying go? If at first you don't succeed try try again...

Perhaps he could make some money on the side renting his head out for a chock.

Ouch. What a bonehead .. Had to look it up but there are 22 bones in a complete skull. I'm sure he stressed a few. People die from lesser trauma than that SO lucky. I think he''''''''''''''''''''''''''ll be a little more careful from now on.

Chock or maybe an anvil. Rolling Eyes

There are lots of guys outside for the Darvin award

Two things from driving school stood with me my whole life.
On 2 wheels you have always to think for 2, your self and the other driver what comes at you (from what side ever, even behind)  - so look out for places to go even it it is off the road.
Second, always drive into a curve you can not see the other end - so you can stop in half the way you can see. A boulder. oil or something nastier can always happen.
These both rules served me well for 45 years.

Picture wife and Burgman 400 K2 with some little stones on the road down a very curvy road (luckily for us we came up the hill and were slow anyhow)

Agreed. Thinking ahead is critical. One of the first things I learned when I got my pilot's license was to pick out an area within gliding distance where you could put your aircraft down without injuries to those aboard, as you pass beyond reach of that spot you need to spot a new place and so on. It's much the same when driving. You have a 360 degree patch all around you and your vehicle that you have to keep a constant watch on.

We have a lot of roads around here with steep banks right at the edge of the road. Especially on a bike you need to stay toward the edge of the road for two reasons. An oncoming vehicle may be swinging wide because they hit the turn too fast. If you're riding in the left edge of your side of the road there may be no way to avoid the oncoming surprise. If you're close to the edge where the ground rises steeply one has to be ready to avoid rocks that may have fallen onto the road or sand and/or gravel kicked out by a passing truck.

If you happen to travel highway 199 from the coast through some of the redwood forest toward I5 in Southern Oregon watch for those things and be careful there are more accidents and fatal crashes on that road than any other in Oregon. Just because it's comprised of a lot of curves, rises and dips. And dips driving too. The road does pass through and edge of Northern California and Southern Oregon.

Ahhhhh Oregon drove my newly bought 32 foot widebody RV there to register (save California sales tax) and made my driver license in Lakeview. Did my driver test (bring your own car) in the brand new nearly 2.50 yards wide RV down the streets of Lakeview, especially the backing up part without a rear view camera was lots of fun. After that a tour towards wizard island in Crater Lake. I still remember the lots of road workers with people holding signs to slow you down. Good Millennium the last Millennium.
