Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

Roethlisberger's 2005 Suzuki Hayabusa, which is named after a Japanese bird of prey, was totaled. The 170-horsepower bike, which weighs 500 pounds fully loaded, was targeted by law enforcement agencies worldwide after its 1998 debut because it could reach a top speed of 189 mph.

Looks like a 2007 Crotch Rocket to me....

there is absolutely no reason that a bike that can go that fast should be allowed on public roads. that thing is a death trap. if you feel the need to go that fast than you should do it on a race track.

What kind of car do you drive? Can it exceed the national speed limit of 75mph? Under your logic all corvettes, ferraris, lambo's, BMW's, Mercedes, etc. have no business on public roads. They can all do well in excess of 150 MPH.

Owning a bike that has that power, does not mean you have to use it recklessly, just like owning a vette doesn't mean you have to drive 180.

Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

Is there any truth that one of his eyes is what the operation was about?

Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

Just think. Antwaan Randle El was just a helmetless motorcycle rider away from being this much closer to lining up behind center for the Steelers

I guess it was for the broken sinus cavity which i think is right there below the eye so it could be very well for that.

my kia minivan has never exceeded 75 mph i'll have you know.

on a serious note, i was talking about motorcycles but cars that go that can go that fast should have govenors on them too. if you want to go that fast you are putting everyone on the road in danger.
i know that this comment will draw some criticism but lets be real people. if the law says you can only go so fast then they should regulate a cars ability to break that limit

I'm glad that you are a slow driver, I feel safer because of it, but the question was "can" your car go faster and the answer is yes. Ben was not speeding, that latest reports are saying a car pulled in front of him illegally, so his bike and it's speed potential was irrelevant. Inattention to the task at hand and poor judgement is what kills people in cars AND on bikes not the potential top speed of the vehicle they are piloting.

Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

980 just reported fractured sinus cavity, broken nose, broken jaw... not sure if that' everything or just some of the injuries.

Jesus, I just busted a nut looking at that video. The crazy thing about this whole Roethlisberger bike thing is that I am getting a new bike next Saturday.

Re: Roethlisberger injured in motorcycle accident

I don't recall the statistic (didn't look it up), but it's a fact that most car-cycle accidents are caused by the driver of the car. Either the car driver did not see the cycle, or they misjudged the distance & speed of the bike.

With so many people depending on him, Ben had an obligation to his team and fans to ride responsibly. You can't avoid the risk, but you can take steps to minimize the damage. After Kellen Winslow Jr, you'd think he would know that. (spoken as someone in his young 50s whose risky days are behind him.)

Wonder if he will wear a helmet now?

Could it be that the theft of his ATVs was the best thing to happen to Sean Taylor?
