I watch these kind of videos regularly, as a reminder that I have to ride safe. It helps a lot.
To me watching motorcycle accidents video almost daily is a big part of riding.

I've watched this video about 3 or 4 times, and it always helps remind me of the things I need to be careful of when riding. ALL GEAR ALL THE TIME! I use to love mashing on my bike, but after riding for a while. I realized that there are too many variables on the street to speed, especially when riding in the twisties. I'm getting prepared for the track in the spring/summer! So excited to ride to my limits at a safe area with professional supervision!

Good information and a reminder of the dangers in riding and to always be safe and wear your gear and be alert for other motorist.

So one thing that I didn't see brought up in this thread, is what part the tennis racquets the guy had strapped to his back (at least I thought that's what he'd said) played in his spinal injury. I'm in no way discounting the value of this video and it's message, I'm simply posing a thought to any of you riders that carry hard items in a backpack, that that might not be a good choice. Chances are bad enough that you'll impact something with a relatively sharp edge in a wreck without guaranteeing it through your luggage choice.

I think it's more of how he got crushed from the waist down is what cause nerve damage... But then again, who am I know how it happened other than the doctors.

However, this is definitely a good watch and to remind myself and others who ride to always be aware of your surroundings. Loud pipes saves lives, but also taking notice of what's around and how drivers are reacting is what will save your life. Keep your speed at speed limits and if you want to go faster, save money for the track where it's an extremely controlled environment to hit 3 digits.

I know that we all indulge in the fun of riding and that is why we do it, (and sometimes ride fast or unsafely) but I think some people fail to remember that everytime we get on our bike (or yes in a car also, just less risk), it could be the last, and in order to stay safe we need to be 110% aware of whats going on at every moment, and that the road conditions are always changing, even if you've been on Hwy. 9 300 times, the 301th time could be completely different with a rock around the next corner.. Ride safe everyone, and share this video with whoever you can..http://www.chp.ca.gov/html/motorcycle_v.html


The video is missing now. Is there a new link?

You're quoting a post from almost exactly 12 years ago.
