If there’s a golden rule to motorcycling, "don’t be an idiot” would rank #1. But beyond that, there are a few things you can do to drastically lower your risk factor.

  • I think you might’ve saved my life a few months ago. I started putting my left foot down and funny enough I got rear ended. My bike slid forwards when I got hit and stayed upright. Then the car behind hit that car. I fell over at that point but had I already been on the ground before that second hit, the second hit would’ve instead pushed the first car on top of me. Thanks :) Edit: can I say for sure that the “what if” aforementioned would’ve happened. No but it best to assume the worst and prepare for it. That’s why I said you might’ve saved my life.

  • The portion at the end hit home. Solid. Was riding for 2 summers, always solo, always aggressive, but my own aggressive. First time with another rider and was taking a turn in the rear position and by the time I realized what he was doing and what the corner required, it's was too late. Went way wide into the oncoming lane and brushed the guardrail, scary, but not sure why it happened at the time. Thanks Ryan for the insight.

  • Think you forgot the trick that saves the most lives, keep your distance to the car in front of you, if the car in front slams on the brake there is no need to panic if you held your distance, in sweden we have be 3 second behind the car in front otherwise you can get a hefty fine.

  • There is only ONE way to survive riding a motorcycle. That is develop the mindset that everyone is out to KILL you, do NOT ever, rely on road rules especially when motorists are required to GIVE WAY to you, 99% they won't. It's no good arguing it in court whilst your sitting in your wheel chair, that is if your even still alive.

  • Let new riders lead the group knowing faster riders behind them? Recipe for disaster as they will feel pressured to keep a good pace. Better to have slower riders at the back, have a assigned destination so doesn’t matter if they don’t keep up.

  • Pre-loading the front brake lever will turn on the brake lights on most motorcycles though. That can be more dangerous than not pre-loading since now the people following you can't tell when you're actually braking.

I used to shadow my dear late wife, it stopped cagers cutting her up or driving unnervingly close, as I governed the lane. My profession is motorcycle messenger and I have experienced it all. I used to teach learner motorcyclists too.

  • Annoys me how he uses 2 fingers on the levers. In a UK Motorbike exam, if you're seen not trying to use all of the 4 fingers then you can get an instant fail. The reason for this btw is if one of the levers gets crushed by some sort of collision and then therefore the fingers behind will get crushed.

  • I ride alone ... I prefer tooooooo ! ... be alone .Slower new riders always at the front , I have been rear ended 2x by slow riders. First question I ask any group I meet is how long have you been riding ? Less than 5 yrs I ride alone . I Stop as if I was about to lane split behind cars , saved my ass more than once. Car see's me last minute, swerves as I move to the safe spot (eye's on my mirror when ever stopped in traffic). and hit's car in front of me . 46 years riding teaches you alot.

  • accordion can get scary real quick haha. Im a beginner and ride a fz6r. my buddies have much faster supersports. They roll on and by the time i even get up to speed they're usually breaking for a turn traffic, ect. I come in screaming with some speed trying to get back in the group and have to break hard. I've learned to work around this and just let off when i see brake lights and catch up slower, but man I can see how it happens so often like in that video. That little voice in your head that tells you your about to be in some trouble is seldom wrong. Listen to it so you don't rear end your friends and turn your group into roadkill, haha.

  • Great video, a couple of comments. First, as a former MC Instructor, we always taught folks to NOT cover the front brake unless they were in a high danger situation. That to have the front brake covered all the time took away from your reaction time. If you only cover in higher danger areas then you are more alert and your reactions will be faster. Secondly, we always taught to cover with ALL fingers for a couple of reasons. First, with older bikes you may need all the power you can get, especially if you don't have a lot of hand strength and secondly, your little finger is far better at "knowing" how much pressure you are applying (at least that's we were were taught at the time). Ah, yes rubber banding. It's the reason why, in the military, with long convoys, the slowest trucks are put up front. That way the trucks at the rear have the power / speed to catch up. And the other point, not mentioned was that when you are accelerating and the item in front is decelerating the rate of closure is FAR quicker than your poor little brain can figure out. While I've experienced this on the track, I've also experienced it on the ski hill, when both skiers/riders are converging towards the middle it happens WAY faster than you figure!
