This is the car. It's pretty obvious where he hit the bike and how much the difference in speed must have been.

...and the bike, looking back at the first photo that you posted, was obviously hit VERY hard...

The rider likely died of what could be termed 'general trauma, extreme' . . .

...poor fellow, likely, never knew what hit him...

Yes it's a tragedy for sure, but this poor guy's gone and we're still here.

It's Christmas time-- lots of tourists around who may not know exactly where they're going so look out for last minute changes of direction, be aware of mums in a rush, people on mobiles, people driving a bit under the weather coming home from office drinkies, people driving tired after a long trip and mentally switching off because they're "nearly there", people driving erratically in heavy rain...the list goes on.

Vigilance. Self preservation. At this time of the year a little paranoia regarding cagers is possibly not a bad thing.

We remember this fallen rider but we owe it to ourselves and our families to have a happy and safe Christmas.

Ride safe everyone. Let's all of us get to Tassie in three months.
