What the odds I'd survive my Motorbike crash? What kinda forces did my body experience?

I crashed my Suzuki SV650 head on into a car both doing 50mph. Me and the bike had a combined weight 224kg. I flew about 20 ft through the air before I hit the floor. Was wearing full armour full face helmet, gloves, jacket, armoured trousers. and boots. In all I broke my wrist, pelvis in 3 places and ankle.

Just want to know what my body went through and how lucky I am. Any answers are appreciated.

The horizontal component of the kinetic energy of your body which was dissipated = 1/2 of your mass (whichya don't provide) times the square of the velocity. The vertical component is the same formula, but the velocity is derived by using the the height (whichya don't provide) and the acceleration due to the gravitational constant at the location of the accident (whichya don't provide). It's all about the math. Since you don't provide enough information to figure this out, insufficient information = insufficient advice.

not that high …but if you had been strapped into an American built car …you would be dead …America thinks it needs cars built like tanks …totally opposite …you need crumple zones …that takes the energy of the crash …lets put it another way ….drive a tank into a solid object ..say at 60 mph …the tank would be unharmed ..you would be dead …your body organs cannot take it …they are still moving foreward …your organs are crushed internally …
