Very sobering.

Biased probably, but maybe because the CHP are sick of seeing dead young motorcyclists and the carnage. A thousand thumbs-up to the CHP who have to deal with it.

Lightbulb You are your fellow riders keeper.

The one thing I have to say is look out for your friends while riding. A lot of new riders, and some old ones too, try to ride beyond their skills. If I am riding with someone who is new and I see them doing stupid shit I always try and discourage them from it. I also try to constantly learn from poeple who know more than me (not just in motorcycling either), and I try and pass that knowledge on whenever I get the chance. Going fast is fun but stopping suddenly, like when you crash, isn't all that fun. It isn't worth it. I'm not impressed when fellow riders do dangerous shit just to get attention or be competetive. I'm more impressed with self control and demonstration of safety skills. Two wheels automatically equals cool in my book so let's be safe and just ride.

Good reminder of the results of inattentiveness, bad decisions, bad reactions while you're on a bike - and that goes for bad decisions by OTHER drivers also.

in the vedio, they said the helmet was cracked then fell off.
Now, one questions: how fast or how hard would a crash crack a DOT standard helmet?

I'm not suicidal, but I'm also not going to tiptoe through life frozen in fear. The world is overpopulated with idiots, myself included, and if I bite it on a motorcycle the only thing that I'd regret (if I were still alive to regret things) is the embarrassing, sappy, sentimental way people will probably think about my death.

I know exactly what I'm getting into every time I ride 180mph wheelies through rush-hour traffic drunk and on fire with no helmet shooting my pistol into the air between shifts.

All that I ask is that when I'm laying on top of the semi and my blood trails are the only way to find my broken corpse, please don't say what a shame it was, how foolish I'd been or what a waste of a perfectly good human being. There are 6.6 billion others; I think you'll manage without me.

So instead maybe you could say something like, "He knew what he was getting into and he did it anyway." We shouldn't need a scary movie to remind us that it's dangerous to hurtle down the road clinging to an engine with wheels.

. very sad to see such tradgedy. i wish these people wouldnt ride so wrecklessly as if they are the only ones on the road. maybe they should impose a law like in other countries so that new riders start out of 125-500cc.

Definitely a tad biased.

Heres a shocker: Motorcycles are dangerous!!! *GASP*

I stick to either the track or b-roads if I want to go fast, and I always do a slow preride of the b-road at least twice. I'm all about the speed limit on the freeway and around town. I stick to the right lanes and I make sure as hell that everyone can see me, and a 125db horn works great too. If I think someone is coming into my lane or merging into the lane next too me, a give a honk. The 10mph/1 car length rule (front and back!) is something to hold onto religiously.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: we NEED tiered licensing. Five bucks says that idiot bought either a hayabusa (the only bike besides a ninja 250 that every newb seems to have) or a liter. Stupid. STUPID STUPID STUPID!

Wow, that was irresponsible to get that kind of gas mileage. I hope you're more careful about your fuel consumption in the future.

Good video for MSF course. do they show it??? I think the video was boring but only becuz everyone from the non biking wolrd always tells me about this or that accident. Ive been in some good ones(freeway, hwy 9), so i think i understand the risks. It strikes me as odd when people seem to not understand that they could get injured or die with one bad twitch from an arm or a rouge piece of sand in the road.

And it erks me when people say ride safe for some reason tho i know its with the best intentions. But motorcycles are not safe, and if i wanted to ride safe(slow) id get a harley.

I like seeing all of you out there on these warm summer months tho to observe how yall ride safe.

RIDE SAFE
