It happened SO fast, I need to still try and remember all the detail, but in short, it really just looked like his front wheel locked(??).  We were travelling down the highway, on a straight road only about 10km from home, and just passed a turnoff with traffic all around us. We were not going very fast, was actually 'cruising' behind the cars.  Next thing, Michnus' bike was tumbling into the barriers and he went first flying through the air and then tumbling into the the road.  Quite a bizarre incident.  Hopefully when we see the bike again we can piece it together.



This sounds very similar to the accident that the Afrikaans singer Mattys Roets was involved in on his BMW  :-\

Negative. Matthys ran off the road. By his own admission he "probably lost concentration".

I would really like to know what happened - really strange.
