Pretty spooky video of motorcycle vs. car collision tests. You wouldn’t want to end up in a crash like these. A pretty good incentive to wear your protection gear; crash like this without it and you’re toast.

Behold as the good Mr. Copperfield makes a Harley Davidson Wide Glide vanish right before your eyes. The video must be from a Copperfield show in the late eighties, early nineties, because the bike is an Evo, today they’d probably use a Twincam.
