What not to do

I'm in the practice of watching motorcycle crash videos (and listening to crash stories / keeping abreast of accidents in the news) so that I can analyse what went wrong and attempt to identify what I would do differently to prevent that outcome from happening to me.

Sometimes this is a very sobering passtime, when accidents happen that I struggle to see a safe path to avoiding.  The recent tragedy at Kinglake is one such incident that has spurred me to look at booking in for advanced rider training again, since I believe one would need to have been at the very top of one's game to be able to handle or minimise the risk to life of that particular situation.

Then there are the times that I come across videos like this one, which reinforce my acceptance of Darwin's work.  I'll let you draw your own conclusions and lessons from it!

  1. Hmmm, that much stupidity rolled into a single video is just plain scary!!!
