Too Close Of A Call For This Biker
April 2nd, 2018
Luckily, everyone walked away relatively unharmed from this accident. This, my friends, is why you wear a helmet and protective gear when you ride.
To summarize the scene, a Camaro runs the light and hits the Toyota. The Toyota then rolls over when it impacts the white Ford. The motorcyclist, who is recording the whole thing, plows into the bottom of the Toyota which causes the bike to go sliding out from under him as he clings to the exposed suspension and frame bits of the SUV.
Again, it's just short of a miracle no one seriously hurt. To top it all off, the biker managed to ride the bike away. The motorcyclist left a note with his video upload:
Someone ran a red light and I got real lucky...
"To answer some common questions: No one left in an ambulance, myself included. I was wearing most of my gear (was only going up the road so only had on regular jeans and boots), gloves and jacket saved me what would've been some serious sliding damage.
The bike would've been a lot worse shape if not for my frame sliders My frame slider is completely grinded and destroyed but it saved most of the bike. Other than some broken plastic and mirror, the damage isn't too serious. Still can start up and ride, I actually rode it home."
