Watch and Learn!

Stumbled across this excellent YouTube video today. Certainly not for the faint hearted, but there’s some definitely lessons to be learnt from the unfortunate accidents shown. Not easy viewing, but do try to avoid repeating their mistakes on the road yourself.

A large number of these accidents are down to aggressive filtering, often on the inside and general lack of perception and anticipation of upcoming hazards. It may be easy to spot these errors watching the video, but many of the riders had too much speed for the conditions/hazards around them, leaving them no time to react. There’s also an awful lot of riders seriously lacking protective clothing – they’re really gonna be hurting!

That’s insane!
It’s a shame that there are always riders out there like this who continue to give us a bad reputation and making a lot of people think we are dangerous and aggressive. I hope these people in the video have learnt their lesson and consequently adjusted their riding style.

P.s. Thanks for your comments on a number of my posts. I posted a comment reply in Upcoming Changes to an issue you raised – cheers for bringing it up.
