TWO men were seriously injured when their motorised biclycles collided and burst into flames.
The two men, aged 25 and 41, were travelling in the same direction in South Grafton on the New South Wales coast just after midnight when their petrol-driven bikes crashed, police said.
Flames engulfed both riders but a passer-by used a garden hose to douse the flames.
The 41-year-old man suffered extensive third degree burns and head injuries and was critically ill in hospital this morning.
The younger man suffered serious burns to a leg and cuts to his head, and was in a serious condition, police said.
