Bike accidents compilation video
« on: June 24, 2014, 12:22:01 pm »
I dont know if this video has been posted before, if so, then please delete this thread.

A chilling video to watch so dont watch and complain afterwards, but I reckon a good reminder to keep it real out there - for bikers and cagers alike.

Speed, lack of observation, maybe even lack of being visible and also a lot of stoopid mixed in the causes.

I agree.

Too much speed.
Not observing.
Riding like a twatwaffle.
Plain stupid.

In most of the cases.
Young enough to know I can, old enough to know I shouldn't, stupid enough to do it anyway.

A good reminder as to how quickly things can go pear shaped.

Oh no. Very true, but really not nice to see.

I believe this can also have a negative effect on your riding, as being overly cautios is also bad ?

First thing I did when I started to paraglide was to Google all the paragliding accident videos I could find. I watched and learned from others mistakes, made myself aware of what can happen and how to react/handle it. For me it's better to be informed than not.

Huh!  Doesn't take big balls to ride without attgatt just a bad habit maybe. When I started riding , a dilapidated helmet was full attgatt.
Still ride like that today I cannot even stand to ride with gloves. I have since learned to ride with a cheap adventure riding jacket and pants. Proper riding boots are out for me as I just cannot imagine riding and I cannot feel my brake pedals etc.
I do believe in attgatt  but just not for myself.

I'm strictly a ATGSOTTOSOTGMOTT person myself.

That's All The Gear Some Of The Time Otherwise Some Of The Gear Most Of The Time.

On Sunday I rode with just about all of the gear, on a midwinter's day nogal, and just about passed out from overheating. Could have caused a nasty accident.

But yeah, the vid is bloody horrifying.

I wonder how many of those guys actually lived to see the next day.
Lots of stupid ppl out there. Both on bikes and in cages.

P.S. The crash at 03:08 shows exactly why riding in the Suicide Lane is retarded.

What I cannot understand is how bikers always want to overtake on the outside when it is obvious that cars are turning. I mean that is just plain stupid. Thankfully I don't see that much here in SA but watch accident vids and you will see it a lot.
