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.
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.
The scene, cut from the 1987’s 21 Jump Street series shows newbie Johnny Depp getting a motorcycle riding lesson from a track racer. One down, five up? That is not the approach towards riding! Nice attempt though.
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
Last month at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, Jason McVicar of Vancouver experienced a crash from the Suzuki Hayabusa 1300 as he was establishing the speed record for the fastest production motorcycle ever: 391 km/h.
What makes the story even more amazing is the fast that it survived the crush without serious injury. We can’t say the same thing about its bike though as it was bended, disintegrated and burned as a result of the amazingly fast accident.
Racing is all about technology, continuous development and unbeatable characters in a rush for performance and ecstasy when being the first to pass that finish line. But today we’re going to show some riders that haven’t got the luck to see that happening, at least not in the respective races.
This video is a compilation of sportbike crashes and the broken bones that come with them. I’d even like it if I wouldn’t know how much it hurts.
