The name of the thread was meant to be ironical. I just thought it amusing that there are so many mishaps on film with that Izh brand of motorcycle (which is a cool bike BTW, I think...).

They're made in the Soviet Union intended for sale in the Soviet Union. Did you think they were going to use them to advance agriculture and develop into a first world nation?

After watching this repeat several dozen times, I realized the forks didn't actually break and sever. The lowers weren't attached to the fork tubes and they popped out in mid-air. Crazy Ruskies.
