It's not the violent sudden death that concerns me. It's the price of parts.

Crashed into a car and becomes a paraplegic.

You can never be complacent when riding; even after 38 years.

Agreed. But way easier said than done. Try, try.

If you take all the risk out of life, what is left? Be as safe as you can, but just go ahead and live. And hope that fate is your friend.

i am a new rider.. and ive been driving very safe.. i even decided to get a 250 ninja first before ever touching a 600.. im still scared everytime i ride near cars... i drive a lot slower than i actually do in my car when on my bike.. we all already knew this stuff before we ever got our first bikes.. but watching it again just hits you and it seems like we all have a connection to him even tho we dont know him.. because we all relate .. we all ride

Good post but it seems very accident on the video was a motorbike hitting a car (or something). It sends a good message to motorbike riders but not so much to Auto drivers (I think).

It's not always the case (personal expirience). for a great post!
