Talk about a compilation of stupid biker errors.

Running red lights, speeding, passing on double yellows, etc.

Everyone Exaggerates

that made me cry

If you are flammable and have legs... you are NEVER blocking a fire exit. - Mitch Hedberg

there is a time and a place for speed... and it is not on the highway with heavy traffic

when the boogeyman goes to sleep at night, he checks his closet for chuck norris.

Chris: Why do you put your hand on your hip when you ride?
Me: Where else would i put it?
Chris: ON THE HANDLEBAR?!
Me: nah

Have to agree..... if you are going to ride on the street, safety needs to be
your first and only priority.


If you want to push a little bit.... get thee to a racetrack !

Yes....riding the streets is dangerous....walking down the stairs at home is dangerous, getting in an out of the shower is dangerous. I have done my share of really stupid things on a bike...on the street, in the dirt and on the track. IMHO if your not riding the street...your not riding, it's like saying you ride, but won't ride if it's raining. I find riding "the street" is one of the most satisfying things I can do. Nothing like riding 5000 miles in 10 days, nothing can compare.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Nice vid...good find. I've seen most of those clips, but some of those still make me cringe. Let's be careful out there guys, don't ride over your heads.

The sad part is that many of those more serious accidents had NOTHING to do with rider error. Cagers are the larger threat.

When I see motorcycle inside a car or car broken in half, I think that speed of motorcycle was a big factor.

Riders not playing the WHAT IF game constantly with their surroundings are their own worst enemy.
