CHP Motorcycle Video

This is a video from the CHP. Don't know if it has been posted or not yet, but it is worth watching. Just saying, be careful out there. Be aware of you surroundings.

Good video. Lot of good information there.

After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Very sobering message. It's hard to hear and see, but for me at least I think it's good to be reminded often how vulnerable we are out there doing what we love. Be safe everyone!

Very disturbing but a must see for everyone obtaining a drivers license in any state!

So many cagers out there aren't aware of motorcycles and at the same time a lot of riders out there are riding above their head and need to calm it down and learn proper technic and safety as well

Good info, thanks for posting! Did anyone figure out what helmet the RIP man wore that split from behind? Made me wonder if a great helmet would have saved him?

Not enough info on safety classes, sport vs. cruiser, ATGATT, HLM, BLM, or airhorn... when the second part be available?
