Comment on facebook from someone who knows the rider/bike is that
the wheels were 3 months/100 track miles old with no bad history.
Scary.

Yeah but was the wheel damaged in the crash or crash because of wheel failure?

Something about flames seen in the hub area prior to wheel failure and subsequent crash.
Maybe bearing failure or binding brakes??
Sounds like a weird one, but as we all know, Murphyís Law takes no prisoners.

From what I read...problem with rear caliper leading to binding...heat build-up/caliper and rotor glowing...wheel failure...bad crash...in that order.

We can find examples of wheels made from every material that fail, carbon, magnesium, aluminum, they can all fail.
A friend of mine had a stock wheel on a then two month old Speed Triple fail during regular urban riding. Shit happens, do your due diligence as far as maintenance is concerned, and hope it doesn't happen to you.
I only say this because I hate threads that turn into carbon wheel bashing because there's been a few examples of carbon wheels failing. And the carbon wheel bashers pretend that no other wheel has ever failed!!
Thanks from TOBTEK

I can’t recall seeing similar failures with the other materials? But...I’m not very smart so I probably simply forgot....

If Robert Dunlop were still with us he'd have plenty to say about mag wheels failing (IOM '94). There's also a famous photo from world superbike from the 1198 era when a rim sheers from the spokes and parts company with the bike as the rider is accelerating off the corner. It was posted on this forum recently, can't remember which thread...
