Shock value.. maybe.. reality.. for sure.

I think is was very well done.. and for this guy who has ridden for 42 years it still has a valuable impact. Thread stuck..

We will get this video as a permanent feature on 1Rider site.. very sobering stuff.

Ride smart today.. ride again tomorrow.

Well...

Shock impact for certain.

I tell new riders to take a course and then hook-up with other experienced riders that are willing and ABLE to show them how to ride. These riders tend to have grey or peppered hair.

Riding is a blood sport in my opinion. It costs lots of money, lots of emotional energy with the spouse, and often pain and healing. But the fun, for me, outways all of that!

wow! 1st time i've seen that video. thanks for posting it. we should always maintain good distance from the cars in front of us to give us some time to react in certain situations. don't forget to use the horn if someone close to you are not paying attention, always use turn signals, plan escape routes, and even though we have the right-of-way, lets slow down to make sure it's clear, and always wear protective gear.

like it said on the website... "Ride safe... Arrive alive"

The "shock value" is indeed very high. But if the shock was high, I think it means that you/me must have somewhat "forgotten" the risk & danger of riding and take riding everyday without any problems for granted... instead of remembering it (and loved ones at home) continuously while we ride which will help us ride more conservatively... my 2c. Thanks for posting the video. A very good reminder.

Another site that makes you think is ride2die.com. After looking at that site I really started paying attention to whats going on around me.

Excellent video!!

We gamble each time we get on the bike... and the risks rise with less gear and more speed.

Really folks, you applaud this stuff?

This is "red highways" for supposedly grown up folks.

If this saves someone's life, GREAT!

But the fact that a near-snuff film is required to make people recognize the fact that going fast on a bike is hazardous... well, that makes me care less and less about the target audience.

"It wasn't until we saw his blood trickling down the side of the rig that we realized he WAS ON TOP OF IT"

Dum, DUM DUM!!!!!

Please, if you can't talk to your friend and explain the risks without resorting to pictures of dead and or dismembered guys, then you might have a bigger problem than you think. Your friend is either a total moron or near enough that he should not have an M1. But the state deemed him fit, and you could not dissuade him from his moronic views, so sit back and enjoy your life. You tried, and you ain't his momma.

(You did try to explain the risks to your moron friend, right?)

OK, so get on with your life now.

to the state for trying to save the lives of hopeless fuckwits that most people don't give a shit about. Someone's got to do it.

The part about the look of fear and excitement when he got on his bike: I have massive fear & some excitement every single time before I ride my bike. When I'm riding it, it's just pure excitement. I don't know why, but the fear goes away. That doesn't mean I'm not being cautious and trying to ride safe.

This video needs to be seen by all the new riders. Making it an MSF video, like gpg said, wouldn't be a bad idea. It seems like 90% if not more of the new riders really don't know what they're getting into and they go out and buy gsxr600s and r6s for their first bikes.
