    OOPs!.. I spilled my beautiful Max!

    I have (had) a nearly perfect example 2005 until I lowsided it in December. Only minor damages to the tune of 2100$. Hagerty paid promptly on my zero-deductible and now I'm having difficulty locating some of the parts I need for this one. In particular, the original right side crash bar with the...

I decided to buy a true 4in2 exhaust line with Strapps mufflers at the end. So i bought from Seam a brand new Voodoo 4 in 2 exhaust...

    John Force crash

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsO6yXCiwoo They said he was ok, at the time. I don't know any updates. His daughter went on to win. He's such an icon for the sport. Years ago, he came and put on a show at our little 1/8 track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpGGJdcmt4o

    scary boat crash

    Who's piloting the overtaking vessel? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhsYPVEinBE&feature=youtu.be&t=30s I hope the skipper gets a big fine, civil settlement against him, and a revoked boat operation privilege.

    Motorcycle crashes into Cop car

    crash bar or highway pegs?

    I recently purchased an 04 that came with some accessories. I assume this is some kind of crash bar or something. It's quit comfortable to put your feet on except it's slick. Has anyone ever modified one of these by adding something to keep your feet from slipping off?

Wind and or warm weather may have caused it to not climb like he tried. He deployed the emergency chute but was too...

    rebuilding my Vmax a year after my crash

    As most will know, on August the 5th 2015 I had a motorbike crash that should have killed me. I was hit on my right by an old man who went through a stop sign. I went forward hitting his windscreen which pushed me forward and across the road landing in the oncoming traffic lane. Then as I laid...

    My Nearly Fatal Crash - 3 Years Ago Today

    Well, today is the 3-year anniversary of my crash in my car. Took a cable to the face at about 30 MPH. Multiple skull fractures, destroyed left jaw, lost 16 teeth. I woke up from a 6-day coma on Christmas day. Through it all, God's been good to me. I've recovered and healed well... and of course...

    crash videos

    I know we all have the option of getting these on our own, but watching this shows that the Go Pro kids usually are responsible for their own crashes. Watch them run wide on turns, use too-much brake, and just act stupid, like stunting in traffic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r60Gjzbo_UA

    plane crash

    Just heard breaking news about the airbus crash in the French alps. The Co-pilot locked the pilot out and ran the plane into the ground on purpose. Black box recorder had the pilot banging on the door to get in. At this time, there is no mention of terrorist activity, but deliberate.

    teens filmed six seconds before they crash

    A great watch here, you'd think that if they knew they were being recorded, they wouldn't use their phones. http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/03/25/car-crash-videos-highlight-risk-of-multitasking-with-phones/?ref=automobiles But no, they can't not update facebook, text, or call someone...

    This is why everyone should invest in crash bars.

    Was riding to work today, accelerating away from a stop light and a car up ahead decided to abruptly pull over and stop on a road with no shoulder (I saw this after I got up) and the 2 cars behind him slammed on the brakes. Being that we were accelerating, and it's 45 degrees, and I panicked...
