motorcycle head-on collision

As much as we hate to admit it, there's a reason ER staffs call motorcyclists "organ donors." Bikers and knee-draggers have a lot more to watch out for out on the open road... and a lot more at stake if they don't. That often comes down to cars, trucks, pedestrians and even roadside obstacles. But once in a while, that imminent danger is another motorcyclist.

In the video after the jump, a rider who goes (in apparent tribute to the robot in Short Circuit) by the handle Johnny5 was riding his Suzuki GSX-R sport bike on The Snake – a notoriously curvy stretch of road near Los Angeles. Johnny5 was doing alright until an oncoming rider low-sided it and skidded straight into him.

Fortunately, Johnny5 was reportedly alright after the crash, but his bike was a total write-off. Follow the jump for the cringe-worthy footage.
