Gear certainly would've helped (I mean look at his face), but getting hit by a car that's going 80mph is going to do a lot of damage in any case.

But I 2nd everyone else's notion to wear gear on EVERY ride. I even wear ear-plugs and feel uncomfortable without them.

Yeah, thats pretty gross. Glad he made out alright.

Trying to think back to my physics days, he is better off that he was moving when hit at 80 mph, because he would surely be dead if he was parked and slammed into at 80 mph... he was already moving which lowered the force significantly.

No surprises there; put road vs skin and the road ALWAYS wins...

You people that insist on going gear-less.

Wait until your first crash and you will have a change of mind for sure.
