Chris Matheson bailed off his bike at 370 kmh (230 miles per hour) during a recent drag racing event. Matheson was participating in Sydney Dragway’s 2013 Nitro Champs event when he lost control of his bike and was forced to bail. Matheson then bounced, rolled and tumbled for what looks like a hundred feet while his bike kept going. According to the YouTube video description, he broke his ankle. CycleDrag.com says he broke his foot. Either way, that and a little road rash is a small price to pay.
Here’s another angle that shows where the bike ended up.
