    from the evidence it suggests the motorcycle hit the back of the truck...?

    unless the lorry was going backwards really fast... which would be really dangerous.... and impressive

    I'm not sure what happened in the crash but the cast of the reconstruction looked like a bunch of ugly cnuts.

    I am guessing it has something to do with the wrong sort of fuel in the bike

    The road is a dual carriage way. There was a broken down vehicle in lane one. The lorry moved from lane one to two to pass the broken down .... the Bike went into the back of the lorry.

    The road has some large sweeping bends on it, but also a deceptive dip in the road, what was interesting doing the reconstruction was that at the point that I first see the lorry, I can only see the top 2/3's of it and not its wheels. Something we all discussed was that the biker may well have made an assumption that the lorry he could see 300m ahead was in lane one, and that as the dip and the bend developed he had a 'Oh Feck ... it's not in lane one it's in lane two ' moment .....

    The real point of the reconstruction was to almost walk through the scenario so that we could pin point who could see who, and where they were on the road. (So when would the lorry driver first see the bike in his mirror? before his manoeuvre ? not until after after it? etc etc)

    Sounds like the rider was a bit of a scallywag seeing as he got a curfew and tagged too
