Motorcycle Crashes

Motorbike AccidentWhat are the three best ways to crash and kill yourself on a motorcycle? Bear in mind that motorcyclists just you like you and I get killed every day. Some crash and die instantly and some endure severe, painful trauma before succumbing to their injuries.

A variety of factors can influence motorcycle crashes, including being inexperienced with one’s bike, insufficient riding skills, being fatigued, cold, hot, hungry, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But for those among us who want to die on a motorcycle in a more statistically popular fashion, here are three factors to consider:

1) Drink alcohol and go for a ride. 43% of riders killed in single-vehicle crashes were legally drunk. It’s kind of hard to blame anyone other than the rider in a single-vehicle crash.

2) The second is related. Motorcycle riders killed in night-time crashes are three times more likely to be drunk than those killed in day-time crashes. Alternatively, I guess you could say that if you don’t want to be three times more likely to get killed while drinking and riding, you’re better off maintaining the practice while the sun is shining.

3) More than 80% of all motorcycle crashes result in injury or death to the motorcyclist. That’s probably not news to most riders. Personally, I’m surprised that there are 20% of riders who walk away from motorcycle crashes without an injury as a souvenir. Regardless, and more to the point, “head injury” is a leading cause of death in motorcycle crashes. Riders who don’t wear helmets and who experience a crash are 40% more likely to sustain a fatal head injury. OK, so you can reduce your chances of getting killed with a helmet, but you cannot eliminate it. Plenty of riders get killed while wearing helmets, too. Many crashes are so severe that getting killed was unavoidable. Having said that, or as the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says, “No other piece of safety equipment can make as big a difference as the motorcycle helmet.” (By the way, NHTSA.gov is the source of the statistics in this article).

Numbers can be boring. But keep in mind that these numbers represent real riders, just like you and I. And if you think these numbers are still too abstract, just do an online news search for motorcycle fatalities right now and see who got killed in a motorcycle crash today.

Anyway, wishing you safe riding.

  • The only time I do not wear a helmet now, is when I power walk my bike from the carport to the side of the yard to give it a bath. I have always worn a full face helmet and that is what I wear now. There was time in my foolish years that the helmet law was repealed. After swallowing what I hoped was “just a bug” at moderate speed, I went home grabbed my helmet and we have been together since.

    Just my 2 cents.

  • Helmet’s the way to go for motorcyclists, that’s for sure.

    It’s true that high speed crashes leave one with little chance of survival, with or without a helmet. But in my years of knowledge in riding here in India, I have seen only a few high speed crashes caused solely by a motorcyclist’s error in judgement. This is because to a responsible rider, with speed comes the growing sense of requirement to control, safety & hence concentration, factors that would more often than not enable him to overcome dangerous road situations.

    On the other hand, I have seen enough accidents to believe that the combination of low speed & complacency / unalertness on road kills. An accident is waiting to happen the moment a rider takes it too easy. It can be the tight hairpin he misses & goes into the opposit lane only to discover a facing vehicle & has to flip into the road rails; the seemingly timid traffic intersection, where he’s hit from behind or on the side by a 4 wheel driver who can’t judge his brakes properly; etc. And in all of these cases, a good quality helmet & a well covered body is a sure-shot Life saver.

    I offcourse overlooked the high spirited real-road Rossi’s here (no hurt intended). But no amount of safety gear can save a rider if he’s causing a road-rage.

  • I find it laughable that anyone riding a motorcycle needs to be told not to drink and ride! If they are that stupid do you believe they have the intelligence to belong to a forum that deals with safety tips?
    As to the helmet issue, Have some wack you in the head with a 2×4 while wearing a helmet, it is soing to smart a bit, then have some one do the same thing with out the helmet on! Now tell me if you can which way you would prefer to have another wack with the 2×4!
    I love the fact that many riders wear the very expensive boots when riding but absolutely will not wear a helmet! At least their feet will look good on the morgue slab when they put the toe tag on the big toe. I can get around with the loss of a foot or a broken ankle, but not so well with the loss of my brain, I will spend my money on a helmet before the boots.
    Other riders tell me they always wear their helmet on the interstate, but not when just riding around town, they are doing it backwards, most accidents happen at intersections at speeds less than 40 MPH that is wear a helmet can do the most good! At 70 or 80mph on the interstate a helmet is less effective and the amount of body damage you are going to recieve is probably enough to kill you with or without a helmet of head injury.
    As to loud pipes save lives, that is the most laughable one of all! Show me one statistic anywear that backs up that claim. If it were true no one would ever be involved in a train wreck! Anyone that is serious about saving their life while riding a motorcycle will invest in a modulating headlight, an air horn, a quality helmet and take some serious riding courses and practice their skills! I am a believer in A.G.A.T.Just remember the only thing that can fix stupid is you!

  • We lost a member of the biking community exactly a week today. He was wearing a low-quality uncertified helmet and it cut into his head in a relatively low-speed crash.

    Amazing what we can spend on the motorcycle and how unimportant we seem to feel that buying high-quality gear is.

  • Way to Greg,
    Not wearing a helmet is just NUTS! and the right gear.
    after 40 years of riding, it is the only way to go.

  • mr_fluffi, I don’t know if you really believe what your saying or if you are just trying and provoke a response. Assuming that people who read this website have a predisposition to safety, I doubt that anyone would believe your claim that “helmets are very good at stopping abrasion and puncture shocks but as for absorbing impact..forget it and the sad part is shock has a habit of transferring so u hit head on”. Although the helmet does not prevent all the shock from reaching your head, it does dissipate a significant portion of it. Of course I am talking about DOT or SNELL approved helmets not skid lids. Skid lids would be as effective as you say but a DOT or SNELL helmet offer immensely more protection than you give them credit for. As for the additional weight of the helmet, the spine can’t support the weight of your head alone when you significantly increase its velocity. If you fall fast enough, your head will hit the ground because your neck isn’t strong enough to hold it up. The additional impact absorbing properties of the helmet far exceed the additional force caused by the weight of the helmet.

    Will a helmet save every life? Absolutely not, but they will save more lives than loud pipes even come close to saving.

    If you don’t want to wear the proper gear than that is your right to do so (as long as you are following local ordinances). However don’t fool yourself or others who might read this; the proper safety equipment reduces the amount of injury you suffer as the result of a motorcycle accident. It doesn’t eliminate it, and may not reduce it to the point that you are not injured or even to the point that you will survive. But it does reduce it. Who knows, maybe you wouldn’t have as many “battle scars” as you do had you been wearing the proper equipment. But then you wouldn’t have as many yarns to spin either.

    Ride Safe.

  • I ride every day to work and wear a helmet every day. I was involved in a wreck 6 years ago when a woman (no offense to the lady riders out there) made a left turn in front of me. I was on my way to my brother in law’s birthday party 5 miles from my house. I was NOT wearing a helmet at the time as I had only a short way to go. Fortunately for me I had only a small laceration on top of my head, broke my collar bone and left elbow and 3 bones in my left hand.. I never heard from the lady that made that turn. Totaled my heritage softttail. Ever since then I wear a helmet. I realize this is no guarantee but broken bones heal…brain damage does not. I am a registered nurse and I have seen the results of riders involved in wrecks. Fortunately no major head trauma….why????? they were wearing a helmet in most cases. My wife doesn’t wear a helmet but I quit giving her shit about it. She’s not gonna change. Hopefully nothing will happen.

  • Hi I am a fellow biker from Singapore.

    Actually why the argument about statistics ? Even if 55% of helmeted riders do die ,it does not mean there are no hits on the head in accidents . Any helmet or gear ,any practical measures to improve our riding ( eg no alcohol ) is never futile ,but only serve to improve our chances of well being,right?

    For Motorcycling ,as in other endeavors with varying levels of risk , the saying is true :.

    ” He that is quarrying out stones will hurt himself with them,he that is splitting logs will have to be CAREFUL with them.” – ( Ecc 10:9 )

  • I have been riding for 26 yrs, and over 300k miles. I learned how to ride on the freeways in LA. I have never lost a drop of blood due to motorcycle riding. I firmly believe that while your gear can help you survive a crash, you shouldnt rely on your gear, (helmets, pipes ect) to save your life. That takes your brain. You should be constantly scanning your riding enviroment and making adjustments. How I keep myself alive and intact, is by putting 100% of the responsibility on myself, and then constantly scan my enviroment, and take on the responsibility of the other drivers (to avoid hitting me) and adjust my riding. You cant do that when you are buzzed, distracted, and driving to fast for the situation. All the gear in the world is not going to level the playing field for poor riding habits.

  • I have read these comments and just have to jump in. First let my say that I was a police officer for 31 years in Southern California. I retired as a lieutenant in 2006. I spent more than 20 of those years on police motorcycles assigned to a Traffic unit investigating motor vehicle accidents. I also wrote a monthly column for a motorcycle magazine titled “Ask the Sergeant” I obtained my first motorcycle about 15 years before I became a cop so you can see I have some serious experience to base my “opinions” upon.

    A very important stat that somebody pointed out was the study that showed that 45% of the motorcycle fatalities in the test year were not wearing helmets and more importantly, 55% of the people who died were wearing helmets. Believe or not, helmets are not the most significant factor as to wether or not you die in a motorcycle crash. The most significant factor is total blunt force body trauma (speed, force, energy). First example, you can take a man, put the best full coverage helmet on him, full leathers and boots then throw him off the roof of a seven story building and guess what, he is going to die. That helmet is not going to stop his heart from being crushed, his lungs from being shreaded and his arteries from being split open upon impact with the ground. That is what kills most motorcycle riders, blunt force body trauma. And why did I pick a seven story building? Because that would equal the speed that most riders are traveling on the freeway (70 to 75 MPH). Next example, professional AMA road racing and flat track racing. Helmets and full leathers required right? Then that would mean that 100% of the people killed racing professionally, and there have been many, were wearing helmets! Does this mean that their odds were better of surviving if they weren’t wearing a helmet? Of course not, but this is what you could say statistically and that is why you should not rely on statistics when you are forming an opinion. Last example. For the vast majority of my riding life, helmets were optional in California and I would say that I wore one 98% of the time. Then in the mid 90’s several “law makers” decided that California needed a helmet law and the statistics started flowing. It has been a few years so I am not a 100% sure of the exact numbers but I am close. They quoated the most recent offical state statistics that showed that 68% of motorcycle fatalities died of head injuries but they omitted the fact that the same study showed 81 % of the people killed in car accidents died from head injuries. How could this be? Because you are more likely to suffer severe blunt force body trauma on a motorcycle than sitting inside a car and that is why if somebody dies in a car accident it was most likely caused by a head injury. This Stat supports a position of mandating that all occupants of cars must wear helmets but no politician would ever suggest this because he would doom any chance of being re-elected.

    Final thought, and this is what it all boils down to. I defy anyone to deny that if they knew that shortly after riding away from their house tommorow that they were going to be involved in a crash, that they wouldn’t strap on the best full coverage helmet they could get their hands on!

    I enjoy reading the comments. Thanks

  • All the percentages in the world did not help any of us one fateful day this past July when a driver traveling southbound on a highway in Ontario driving his BMW drifted into the northbound lane and took out 4 of the nine bikes. Weather conditions were prefect this Sunday afternoon, 32 degrees C, sunny and dry. All riders were sober, all were wearing helmets but unfortunately one of our Chapter Members past away that day and the three remaining riders hurt in the crash are still undergoing major physiotherapy and a long road to recovery.

  • I agree with your comments and we should all learn sometimes things on motorcycles happen very quickly and we need to be able to react.though on the list should be a number of other ways.you could possibly extend to 10.I dont think youd include this one.killed by Armor all.This guy had just finished detailing his pride and joy a fairly big H.D.decided to take it for a spin a light shower of rain fell and nearing dark he rounded a bend gave it the gas lost control and slid under a large truck killed instantly.the police investigation found the bike to be in excellent working order tyres etc.what they had also found he was in the habit of armor alling his tyres including the road surface.not such a good idea!

  • I’ve been an MSF instructor for more than 20 years. My viewpoint can be considered extremely biased because I’m a safety weenie. I have ridden for more than 45 years and been involved in accidents that could have been life ending had I not been wearing a helmet. Studies have proven that helmets save lives. Not wearing a helmet because “the man” has no business telling you what to wear, in addition to being life threatening is just plain juvenile.

    I have advanced a suggestion for those who resent the costs of taxpayer funding for those helmetless injured riders: No medical attention for the first hour after the impact. The concept would assure that most of the injured would die because they had not received medical attention during the “magic hour” and taxpayers would be spared the majority of the costs of their repair or upkeep should they have rendered themselves vegetative. In spite of the benefits of the purely Darwinian aspect of the proposal, my friends and colleagues have assured me that my modest proposal will never be adopted because it “seems too cruel” . My response is that mother nature is neither benign nor cruel and that only good can come from emulating her.

  • Rubbish!!! So does this mean its safer not to wear a helmet, as 55% of bikers killed must have been wearing them! Also it appears its safer to ride if you drink as 59% of single vehicle crashes didnt have alcohol in their blood! And if youre going to drink and ride do it during the day at weekends. Warning statistics can be interpreted in anyway to support a piont of view.

  • Please note: This video does not say that those 45% helmet less riders would not have died definitly with a helmet on. Only that 45% werent wearing a helmet.
    You can trip and die getting into the shower, we dont stop showering.
    Whats next, a flashing LED vest that lites up with arrows for turns and braking.

    The best way to stay alive is to stay alert and pay attention to your surroundings.
    Not riding when you have been drinking should be a GIVEN

  • As someone who rides a 50cc X50 Benelli, I do NOT drink and drive. This is not an issue. What is an issue, which we can’t control, is a car crashing into you. You’re done for. You’re as vulnerable as you can get. But these are the breaks with bikes.

  • We are adult to make the decision to use or not the helmet.This is a fredom country ,we hope, so, respect the biker decision and enjoy your life riding in peace.

  • If you don’t wear a helmet that’s o.k. You’ve probably got no brains to protect anyway.

  • Noypito, while that stat could have been better expressed, I believe the point as testified to by several posters here is that a significant portion of those 45 percent who were not wearing a helmet would have survived if they had worn one.
    For those dumb enough to ride without a helmet, they deserve to be a source of revenue when they are ticketed. Hopefully that revenue will find its way to county hospital emergency rooms where these goobers are treated.

  • hmm nobody will love me for this.ok been on bikes nearly 52 years and thats everyday not just occasions dictated by weather.I didnt wear helmets until the laws were changed,i just this week got my first ever pair of bike boots(cause they were cheap and purty)always have gone bare foot in summer and thongs(shower shoes in winter)have fallen off more than once have had a lot of skin removed and sewn back on(throat cut chin torn completely off lost one side of face skin grafts from arsehole to breakfast time)have never broken a bone fractured a skull spilt my brains or any serious injuries.
    My point?if you survive any crash it has more to do with luck than equipment(check what helmets actually have to do to comply with standards and check the deceleration absorbtion rates then convert them to k.ph.or m.p.h and are you in for a shock) helmets are very good at stopping abrasion and puncture shocks but as for absorbing impact..forget it and the sad part is shock has a habit of tranferring so u hit head on and yes that means the rest of your body cannons into your head .but if you take a glancing blow you have a fair chance and it not the first impact but the second that does a lot of damage..head hits car/object/then ground.sadly spines are made to support the weight of a head and when you tie a weight?helmet to it? you get the too much mud on the end of a whippy stick syndrome..the load is to much ,stick breaks..lots of donor organs for deserving people..to avoid this ? BE AWARE

  • Hey, MC-G, great video. Amazes me how many folks play Russian Roulette with their brain by not wearing a helmet. Had a relative of a close friend die in a 5 mile-per-hour motorcycle crash… gentlemen wasn’t wearing a helmet… fell over and hit his head on a curb… skull cracked like an egg… the end.

  • these three way are very horrible,if rider sincer with their parents and family members must take care and follow all necessary measures for happy and long life.

  • Although I carry the legal amount of insurance and have taken the safety course that allows me not to wear a helmet in my state, I still wear my helmet. Those who start spouting it’s our right to ride without a helmet… I bet every time you get in your car you buckle your seatbelt BY LAW! What’s the difference? I think all states should enforce the helmet law. If you have to wear a seatbelt for your safety BY LAW in your cage then why not have to wear a helmet for safety. Can you still die if you wear a helmet, but you can still die if you have a seat belt on.

    Wearing a helment makes absolutely no impact on the ride, it’s still the ride, it’s still the freedom, so what you have a helmet on… there are tons of shapes and sizes… everyone should be able to find something they can live with.

  • Since I don’t drink and ride, from my experience, not that I’m dead yet, riding at night is another way to increase your odds of dying. Cars failed to yield to me about the same as they did in daytime but I all but eliminated daytime incursions by getting a modulating headlight device (which legally cannot function at night). In addition, potholes and debris are less likely to be seen at night. Excessive speed is another way to do yourself in, and will trump anything else you have going on in your favor.

  • Hi Folks, I’m old (68) and hope to be riding for many years to come. Me and my buddies (The Old Hogs) ride sober ALL THE TIME, we wear helmets ALL THE TIME and we stop frequently, for a fanny break or to take a leak. We don’t push it. Our schedule is: “We have no schedule.” We want to enjoy the ride.

    I appreciate your videos. Thanks,

    CJB

  • Your video is unfortunately not timely enough for a guy I worked with up until three weeks ago. He was a long time rider and, since we work at a military base, was properly trained and licensed. His last seconds of life were impacting a telephone pole because he failed to negotiate a curve in the road – in a residential neighborhood. He had his female companion on the bike, who was transported to the hospital, but was released a while later. She was wearing his helmet at the time of the crash. He was hoping he was bullet-proof…Oh wait! This genius probably was not thinking at all about his safety…He was drunk. I’m sure his daughter misses her dad every day.

    Crashes are not accidents – they are crashes. Accidents are acts of God.

  • Hi guys, I live in the land of Ducati, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia and many other historical brands. Wearing a crash helmet is compulsory here, by law, even though some younsters don’t do it and often get away with it.
    I am personally and strongly contrary to any such obligation, as it only provides insurance companies with the perfect excuse not to pay up when the time comes.
    I do however ALWAYS wear helmet, gloves and armored jacket. In fact I did already in 1973 when helmets were not compulsoty (in fact at that time in Italy, turn-lights on motorbikes were FORBIDDEN!). Thankfully I have been involved in only two minor crashes, the worst one causing a blue spot on my leg that lasted three months, but I would never ride my bikes without a helmet, although I defend the right of others not to do it if they so please.
    The argument that taxpayers pay for those who get injured is, to my mind, rather irrelevant: who pays for climbers who fall off the rock? who pays for silly housewives who cut themselves while chopping carrots? and so on for just about any human activity.

  • I’m glad I’m in canada… I would get a major ticket if I was caught on my bike without a helmet. I think it should be law everywhere. I know alot of people think you should have the right not to wear them, but here taxpayers pay for health care for the people who dont.

  • And the debate rages on .. I live in WIsconsin where helmets are optional. I will not put my bike in gear without buckling my helmet . To reinforce this fact just last Friday night at 9:50 p.m. i was driving my “cage” and noticed a lot of cop lights on a 35 MPH street where i see a folded up Harley ..on its side … no rider … no car .. so the paramedics had already done their job. I pulled around, parked the truck and walked over to the crash site … there were about 10 people milling around .. law enforcement ..the driver of the car involved and some direct neighbors. After asking what happened .. i got the info : 16 year old boy .. fresh drivers license (April ’09) tried to scoot across and didn’t see the bike. Motorcyclist didn’t have enough time to stop and struck the car, sent him flying about 15 – 20 feet where he landed on the pavement. NO Alcohol was involved. After checking out the crash scene and talking with the police, watching them spray paint out the probable course of events etc. and seeing for myself how the blood filled in the cracks in the pavement … and the sunglasses 3 feet from where he landed … a great reinforcement that i will always wear my helmet …the last thing i saw .. the sticker on the gas tank of the now totaled Harley, ” LOUD PIPES SAVE LIVES” …. helmets save more. it’s a simple fact … why not use both ?

  • While I fully support and defend a riders decision not to wear a helmet or other safety gear, I will always wear good quality safety gear myself. When I first joined the navy, while very few states had laws requiring the wearing of helmets, the navy did have regulations requiring the wearing of helmets while riding on any size motorcycle or scooter. This regulation applied even if riding off base and on your own time. Even though I used to bitch constantly about this regulation I thank God they had it and enforced it. I lived in Guam for several years and rode daily. On one trip I was forced off the road by a car crossing the centerline into my lane. The resulting crash resulted in much damage to the helmet with many deep cuts, scrapes, and gouges to the top and back of the helmet from the coral I crashed into. Anyone who has lived on a coral island knows how serious infections can be when the bits of coral get into wounds. The helmet took the damage instead of my head, even though the rest of my body took a beating. I kept the helmet many years as a reminder of what can happen and won’t get on a bike without a helmet since that accident, even in states that don’t require them. I am now retired and still ride as much as possible. Now I ride in comfort on a GoldWing couch rocket.

  • Re : Motorcycle crashes

    Well I am sure your stats on helmet use will illicit some noise! I rarely get involved in the debate – but when appropraite I pull out my old Bell full -face. It has the jaw broken in half, the forehead crushed in by an inch and the paint/shell of the rear of the helmet scraped. I was t-boned by a car and while it seems I broke half the bones in my body I am still here to ride because of that Bell full-face !

    Enough said.

    p.s. while some may compalin (and at times justifiably) about the price of some helmets body armor, gloves, boots etc – I will forego the performance pipes & engine upgrades and buy the best protective gear money can buy.

  • Hello Lone Star,
    Thanks for commenting. I agree that a conversation about “Loud Pipes Save Lives” could potentially elicit controversy: the notion has had proponents and detractors forever! Personally, I feel qualified to defend both sides of the argument, since I used to ride a bike with loud pipes quite a long time ago. However, over the years, I’ve confronted a lack of evidence that support that loud pipes “do” save lives and have joined the other side. But since the readers of this blog have educated me about so many other things, I’d say it’s a worthy subject to write about and see what others think. Thanks for the suggestion and I’ll post something on it in the near future.

  • Hey MCG…..

    First off, let me say that I’m impressed with the site!

    In the video “Motorcycle Crashes”, you mentioned that you were going to make alot of riders mad by mentioning the need to wear helmets. Do you want to ‘finish the job’?

    The question I have is this: What is the ‘safety factor’ with loud pipes? I’ve got a feeling that topic would get alot of people in the ‘posting mood’!

  • Hi sir! I’m from the Philippines also and maintained a forum for Honda owners. Your video is very informative and I would like to ask your permission if I could post it on our forum.

    Thank you very much for sharing a lot of motorcycle information.

  • unfortunately, a lot of riders here in the Philippines love wearing helmets on their elbows… may be they keep their brains in the elbows

    kidding aside… lets always wear our (atleast DOT approved) helmets

    one of my friends almost died because he committed the perfect combination in riding… riding while drunk and without a helmet. he was in COMA for a week and was very lucky to have lived.

  • “Forty-five percent of fatally injured motorcyclists did not wear helmets.”

    maybe 55% of these injuries wear helmets improperly (unfastened)? or, just plain helmets (low quality)…or, helmets on elbows?

  • Hi Noypito,

    Great question! If you do a Google search for “U.S. Department of Transportation Action Plan to Reduce Motorcycle Fatalities (Oct 2007)” you’ll be able to see the specific report that statistic came from.

    You can find the “45%” quote under the section “Major Characteristics of Motorcycle Crashes,” which lists about 13 different major characteristics.

    Here is how the quote is worded: “Forty-five percent of fatally injured motorcyclists did not wear helmets.”

    One could look at the inverse and say that more motorcyclists died with their helmets on, however, that wouldn’t provide a truly relevant depiction of helmet use, since the report will describe many other factors that are pertinent to motorcycle crashes and fatalities.

    Conversely, one shouldn’t conclude that helmets will always save one’s life. There are many crashes severe enough that the rider will die with or without a helmet.

    However, I will also add my personal experience regarding helmets and crashes: I have been involved in two serious, and potentially fatal, motorcycle crashes over the decades. In the first one, a full-face helmet not only saved the back of my head from getting smashed like a watermelon, but also saved my face from being smeared all over the asphalt. In the second accident, my helmet wasn’t marked, and the brunt of the impact was absorbed by my shoulder and back in a great rolling motion, so I can’t say that the helmet helped or not – but I certainly am glad I was wearing a fully-armored motorcycle jacket, gloves, pants and boots!

    Best,
    MCg

  • hi, I just can’t help but noticing the third statistics you presented. it says 45% of riders killed in an accident were not wearing helmets. does that mean that 55% of riders killed were wearing helmets?

  • Really helpful, in a way.

    To bad most people in Indonesia thinks that helmets are only good as fashion statements.
    Mind if I show this video to my colleges at college, hopefully it’s pierce their thick skulls more effectively then my mouth.

  • Great advice… with you permission could I use this in my basic skills riding courses… stats in New Zealand would be similar…I have just obtained offiical police reports.

  • Hi Thanks for this informative video. Believe me being a nurse I see lots of alcohol related accidents. Very poor judgment not to use a helmet. Common excuse is I was only going to the store. People don’t realize that most accidents happen within a few miles of our homes at low speeds. Carol

  • Hi. I’m from Ecuador, south américa. thank you very much this very interesting and helpfull video. I’m going to take your advice in order yo avoid myself a crash
