snip...the Swedish Police had this vehicle & bike "cleaned out" and put
it back together to show what can happen in a motorcycle accident.  The
Honda rider was traveling at such "very high speed", his reaction time
was not sufficient enough to avoid this accident.  Swedish Police
estimate a speed of ~250 KM/h before the bike T-boned the slow moving
car at an intersection.  At that speed, they estimated that the rider's
reaction time, once the vehicle came into view, wasn't sufficient
enough for him to even apply the brakes...snip
