  • Just rewatched this video a few months after the first time. I realized you never mentioned serious but not deadly back injuries in those stats... like a broken vertebra. Would you still NOT recommend a decent motorcycle jacket among the beginner's gear if you counted those? I feel naked without it, especially since I (was) crashed last year. - Thanks ! -

  • Can anyone explain about the 4 finger clutch pulling bad thing? Well I tried to follow the advice of using two but the gear shifting doesn't seem to be as smooth as pulling the clutch all the way down or maybe I got some faulty adjustments for the clutch? Beginner here

  • DO NOT WEAR MOTOCROSS BOOTS TO YOUR MSF COURSE. They make upshifting near impossible. you can modify where the shift lever sits on any bike you own, but the course will not let you adjust theirs.

  • My riding jacket is pretty nifty. It's got the quilted inner liner for colder rides, the water-proof middle layer for wetter rides, and the armored mesh outer layer for all rides. In the Summer, I can just stick with the armored mesh. Each layer also has pockets of some type or another, which is nice. It also fits well, doesn't ride up my back and expose the crack, is easy to clean, and doesn't make me look like either the Michelin Man or a Rossi wannabe. Straight-up, it's good for cruising, riding about town, and adventure stuff, and I honestly don't think it would be bad for sport riding as well.

  • Had my first fall today, riding for 2 months/ 1,000 miles. Environment: 12/30/2020 night, suburbs no street lights + tinted visor Speed: slower than 30mph Full geared expected gloves used $1 cloth gloves under winter/snow gloves. Story: driving through suburb followed by vehicle, pressed to speed up. With low visibility and tinted visor, rode myself to edge of road, panic braked when road veer left. Only dime size bump on left wrist and hip, bike is okay just bent left foot rest. Result: learned that in low visibility, don’t use tinted visor, and when pressured by vehicle behind left them pass especially in new area.

  • I LOVE your videos and it would be so cool to meet you one day. I hope you don't mind, I would like to share my story. I recently got into a pretty gnarly accident six days ago. If I wasn't wearing my Snell certified helmet (Shoei) and my Sedici jacket with the protectors in it, I'd be dead. My gear, helmet and bike were done. I high sided. I know exactly what I did wrong because of the last thing I remember. I was on one of my first group rides ever and I was the newest rider with the smallest bike (Z400) but was in the back. The guys in front were all doing well into triple digits. I didn't know the area so I pushed to keep up (my own stupid fault trust me I've been kicking myself for it). I lost control going over 90mph. Please be kind because although I walked away with my life I learned some really hard lessons from this. One of them was that I will NEVER ever slack on gear. Even if it wouldn't have been my fault which it was, it could have been another driver's mistake that caused an accident. Another was losing my bike I had a strong bond with after working on it and customizing it for just over one year. Another was that I probably won't go on another group ride. The pain of losing my bike and seeing the pictures of it totaled was almost more painful than my physical pain.😔 Anyway I was moaning before I regained consciousness. I don't remember anything except moments when the ambulance was rolling me from their bed onto the CT scans. Slowly I started regaining consciousness but I'd say that accident was one of the most intense pain experiences of my life. And I have a really high pain tolerance. I was moaning but I didn't shed a single tear. They thought for sure my back or neck was broken. Because of my back protector I didn't break my back. I had shoulder pads and arm pads. I tumbled along with my bike probably abt 300 feet and they found me in a cactus bush face up, visor missing from my helmet and my bike 80ft from my body. I was scratched up and they were pulling huge leaves out of the backs of my eyes. I had blood inside my ear from wearing headphones in my helmet (DON'T DO THAT). Well after the CT scan they concluded that I did have a concussion but no broken bones. My left arm is 25% usable. For now. For the first few days I couldn't move it. Now I can move it a little but the pain in my left shoulder is excruciating. I was wearing thick ass gloves too and still got gashes in my skin. My left arm and hand are swollen, I have bumps under the skin and the inside of my left hand is covered in deep bruises. They think I have a torn ligament. Definitely severe nerve damage as I can't feel the left side of my neck down my collar bone all the way to my thumb. So I have to get an MRI on my shoulder and arm but they're making me wait until Jan 7th.😭 I just have to ride the waves for now. Once I'm healed I'm gonna get another bike and heed these lessons I learned. I'll probably never ride with a group again as in the city I live in, no one rides chill. Which is why for a year I was riding by myself. I just got too excited and caught up in the moment. I was doing ok before that. I just really want to tell people DON'T SKIMP ON THE GEAR!!!!! It is NOT worth it. Like I said, you could be at fault or someone else could but if you're paralyzed from a broken back it's going to suck regardless of what caused it. I walked out of the ER that night (in a hellava lot of pain- they dosed me up on Fentanyl twice and that didn't do crap for the amount of pain I was in). I'm sure my left arm would have been crushed if I hadn't been wearing my pads. There is no way without all of that gear that I would have survived that. The people at the junk yard were blown away I was alive and well.

  • Great vid - worthwhile and extremely well presented as always Ryan, thank you. Buuuut ... when I returned to motorcycling after the mortgage / child raising decades a very dear friend, who just happens to be an Accident and Emergency Department senior nurse implored me to be sure I had a decent jacket and pants! " Sure" she said " PROBABLY you won't die from your injuries due to shredded skin, or skin peeled back to the bone .... but the pain will make yo wish you were dead. And yes, we have some awesome surgeons can do miracles with skin grafts ... but don;t ever forget we have to TAKE that skin from elsewhere on your body so you;re going to suffer extra pain as well as the crash. Oh, and yeah, when skin heals you know how it gets all tight and irritable around the healing site ... trust me, you don't wanna find out what feels like on any thing over a very small graft ..." So, sure, I bought 'all seasons' gear ... In NZ 'DriRider is a reasonable priced 'known brand' has good protection in the fabric and armour, decent zip vents for airflow ... sure, I get a bit sweaty after a long summer ride, but set that against the avoidable pain of 'more' than mere gravel rash ! Right now, based on content ... I'm heading out shopping for gloves ... mine have hard knuckles, but I didn't know that about the hard sides aiding in a skid vs a fracture scenario... and 'at my age' fractures take longer... I'll have those before the 'new' ( used Tracer 900 ) is ready to collect ! So, thanks again and truly - I've learned so much from yourself that I doubt I could have ever hoped to have gained so much in so short a space of time! From an old dude, hopefully acquiring some small finesse and promising to practice more ... 3 minicones in the top box, I have no (adequate) excuse... there ARE no 'adequate excuses' eh !

So to not even mentioning the excellent protection from wind and rain they offer is misleading. When your on the highway, if it’s raining or even just when the sun goes down It getting pretty fu(king cold on the back of a bike. And I wouldn’t be on one without. Normally I agree with you but on this one I think you tragically under Played what they do offer. Just had to say.
