The thief had stolen a van and was trying to outrun another motorofficer and a policecar.
He hit the policecar twice. Results you see on the photos. I was waiting for him to come closer to my position. I thought I was out of his way. I was at a complete stand still in the intersection you can see in the photos. If he had followed the main road he would never even have been close to me. But he saw me and turned in my direction and before I could get out of the way he drove the van into the left side of my bike. The witnesses said he was driving about 50 kmh when he hit my bike. He drove straight through me and drove away.
He then hit a sign and the van died. He ran into a mall where he was arrested moments later by many other officers.
In picture 10 you can see the red and blue lines and arrows. The red "T" shape is where I was on my bike before he hit me. The red circle is about where I landed after he hit me. The blue arrows are his route.
Yes the suit and helmet did a really nice job. You cant really see it but the helmet took a pretty good hit on the right side and chin. The right side of the suit also took a big hit. No doubt in my mind that it saved me that day. 36 days at home with bruises and a swollen right knee.
But I still love riding
Sorry if my english is not the best.
