Video: The luckiest bloke alive after a crash like that
Everyone has their good days and bad ones. Being at the right place at the right time can sometimes do wonders and change a person’s life for good. But this guy right here had all his stars aligned that day, and probably nothing could go wrong for him. Not even when his bike wobbled out of nowhere, and he lost control of his motorcycle, went on to crash and go under an articulated trailer truck.
I’ve seen multiple crashes in my riding life and trust me when I tell you that this one is the luckiest crash I’ve ever come across. This might be a one in a billion chances of survival. Watch it for yourself:
He was so surprised himself that he laughed it over and assured bystanders that he was alive. The only injuries he received were small bruises on his knee and hip. Nothing broken. Please remember, always wear full riding gear and a helmet and follow traffic laws.
This is how he explained it happened: “I was merging onto the freeway, checking traffic while I ventured over to the carpool lane. When I got next to the carpool lane, I check if it was clear again, then merged in while quickly accelerating in first gear. When I got up to enough speed to pass traffic (Traffic was doing 75-80 MPH) I changed into second gear (where the clip starts). First mistake I made was having my weight WAY too far back on the bike while accelerating, that mixed with the extremely bumpy freeway and the acceleration of the bike caused the front wheel to go extremely light. Thus causing the violent speed wobbles.”
