Maybe they didn't live long enough to post the video.




Commenting on the video, though, MAN there are a lot of inexperienced (dumb) riders out there !

Ugly, ugly video. Some of those crashes were certainly fatal, or at least life altering. Many of the accidents were clearly the result of riders' poor judgement and ultimately give all of us a bad name. I get judged constantly - can see the horror in people's faces when they say, "Oh my gosh, you ride a motorcycle!"

I got a couple minutes in then pussied out. I can't watch it. I can't watch people get hurt or killed like this.

watched the whole video - now trying to summarize what I saw:

1. terrible mis-matches between bike speeds and the speed of surrounding traffic
2. over-anticipation that car/truck/bus/other motorcycle operators would behave in predictable ways
3. poor cornering ability
4. great tendency to lock-up the front wheel
5. proof yet again there is such a thing as a "death wish"

Thanks, Doc!

Definitely a good reminder to keep your head on straight. A guy went down on our ride this morning. Thankfully he was fine, and the bike didn't really get that messed up. He got spooked going too hard into a corner and ran wide, hit the ditch and flew off...into tall soft grass thank God.

Stay safe

+ 1000. I think that was at least half of the reasons for the crashes in that video. The other half were cagers turning left in front (and the motorbike not appropriately watching traffic and/or trying to pass on the left).


Sad thing is, we have to constantly strive to 'unlearn' this habit. We all do it, and it's an easy habit to get back into.

I'm good, i've seen worse and expected worse with the disclaimer that he lived. I just didn't know my daughter was behind me.

I hate to bring humor to this, but one of the comments was "There's going to be a major decuction, he didn't stick the landing." Classic.

Man we saw a dude last weekend riding with a tank top, jean shorts, and NO SHOES!

I wish I could have gotten a picture, I couldn't believe it.......he had a full face helmet on though, so he woulda been fine in a crash I'm sure.
