This rider apparently goes for a backflip, but doesn’t manage to complete the rotation and falls into a strategically positioned swimming pull. Although his cat like instincts ensure he goes with the feet down, his aim isn’t that accurate and hits the edge of the swimming pull with his right side. That’s got to hurt, but he’ll live for a second attempt…though we can’t say the same thing about the bike.
Either a motorcycle has fallen off the sidestand or a mistake lead to an accident, riders will eventually have to lift the motorcycle from the ground and it is important to proceed correctly so that this won’t be damage the bike more than it will most likely be or themselves.
Motorcycle riders who faced the challenge of lifting a fallen motorcycle are aware of the difficulties that might intervene if the maneuver is not done correctly, but those lucky ones who never needed to lift their bikes from the ground will surely find this Harley-Davidson video helpful.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not referring to Travis Pastrana and his amazing double backflips, but to this kind of amateur riders who see a ramp and decide to go for it. This guy doesn’t even manage to direct his dirt bike onto the very narrow ramp, but that doesn’t exclude himself. The rest of it is just pain for the rider and laughs for the five spectators that he had and the millions that will see it on the web.
Let’s just hope he didn’t suffer much after the crash.
The victims of motorcycle crashes happen to also be the victims of insurance companies and it must come to an end once and for all. Knowing your rights means acting in your benefit when the unfortunate event takes place so riders shouldn’t simply thank God they’re alive, but stick to their odds, fight back and turn to professionals if necessary.
The Sharp Law Firm in Austin, Texas specializes in getting the best out of the worst and that is what most motorcycle riders need when somebody else causes an accident and tries to get away with it by using lame excuses.
Press release after the jump
I can understand the fact that people feel the need to ride their motorcycles in the winter. I also ride in sunny January afternoons and afterwards complain about my rheumatism, but I never experienced the need to ride on a lake. Apparently, this guy did and didn’t ended up pretty well (he probably risks hypothermia while his buddies try to rescue his submerged Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle).
Speedway racing is fun, exciting and the best of it is that when the temperatures get too low for having a muddy track, organizers simply turn to ice and the racing teams use the heavy artillery. Well, you can’t really shoot your opponents, but they use spike tires and they often happen to run over themselves and that’s never a lovely sight.
P.S. I can’t believe that nobody in this crash compilation video got hurt.
A cold rear tire apparently ruined this motorcycle policeman’s run as it lost grip under powerful acceleration showing that not all police parades stand for perfection itself.
In another interpretation, you can simply say the guy missed the hashes and now, infantile, tried to show off a little bit on that high revving Suzuki motorcycle. Definitely a big NO NO!
They say no racer tries hard enough if it doesn’t eventually end up crashing, but we have no reason to question Michael Schumacher’s ambition as these pictures reflect that best.
Practicing at Sachsenring for the German Superbike, the former F1 champion skid the peg too much until it ended up crashing his Honda CBR1000RR during a high-speed corner. The funny part is the face he made while preparing to face the unforgiving test of the asphalt
