    Try again because the link isn't showing either. If you want just the link, post the http address at the top of your browser instead of any link found with the video. If you want the video, read up about posting embedded videos.

    As a rider, we all have to accept that no matter how careful we are, every time we throw a leg over the seat, it could very well be the last time. I don't trust any motorist on the street when I am riding, cars and even other riders are so unpredictable. Shocked that none of those accidents showed any gore, pretty brutal to watch thats for sure.

    Yeah, makes me not want a bike even more... No matter how good of a rider you are, it's the other idiots on the road that you have to look out for.

    Same as in a car or anything else. You get used to being leery of other people around intersections as you ride more. I've had my bikes for years and wouldn't give it up. You just have to be careful.

    Yeah, but you have better chances surviving A accident in a automobile than an Bike.. One of my neighbors growing up was an avid rider. I think he was riding for 20 years... Well, him and his fiancee were riding one night and some idiot pulled right out in front of him, killing his fiancee instantly and severely injuring him. I'm not bashing people who ride. I'd love to own A bike... It's just the people on the road that makes me not want to own one...

    Some maybe like one or two . Getting at they were either speeding or not paying attention ( running stop signs / lights , etc ) most were their own fault .

    Yeah, my statement was more directed towards riding in general.. Yeah, people fuck up on bikes like people fuck up in vehicles.. But it's more nasty of an accident on a bike than a vehicle.

    Heck, even many of those accidents which might be considered the other's fault could have been avoided had the cyclist been traveling at a more moderate speed and paying more attention.

    I think what we're trying to get at here is that cyclists need to stop using the roadways as their personal race tracks, seemingly oblivious to the risks associated with that, and need to pay far more attention to the traffic around them (considerably more than when driving a car).

    I say that as a cyclist which rode for decades without a single accident - my fault or another's fault. I successfully avoided, many times, every single one of the situations (vehicles turning in front of me, vehicles pulling out of side roads, vehicles running stop signs or lights, skids, road debris, foul weather, and much more) shown in that video. For me, it was almost like a sport - the ability to reliably control my motorcycle to avoid or circumvent any obstacle thrown my way.

    Theres a lot of discouraging things I see everyday (had 2 cages in 2 blocks almost take me out last night), but I will ride til I no longer can. There is still nothing on this earth that can make me happier than being on my Davidson out on the open road. Plus the savings in fuel is phenomenal compared to any vehicle I own.
