  • Hmmm if I come on a situation like that. I whisper repeatedly in his ear "go to the light", "go to the light friend". ✌

  • The one i wanted to see in this list most was that you say keep the helmet on and thank goodness you said that because i know for sure not trust the police in finland to know that as i have seen proof of that

  • Awesome specialised advice, always good having a small personal trauma kit but what really matters is knowing how to use it, don't wanna have all the gear and no idea.

  • I described my trauma kit below, a year ago. This year, I rolled up on an accident, the rider had at least a broken ankle, but the guy who went to my bike for my kit had to ask, "where's the kit?", and "where is the key to the hard side case?" Now there is a big 4" (10cm) red cross sticker on the side case, right where the trauma kit is, if you could reach thru the case. And the key is on a lanyard and in the lock. If it snaps off in the lock, the lock can still be turned with the rest of the key (on lanyard) or something less sophisticated than a flathead screwdriver. But the key is there so anyone can open it. If I park and leave the bike, I take the key with. But putting a red cross on where you have a kit was something I did not think of. And I have never heard anyone say that. It taken for granted a kit will be marked in a car with a built in kit or in an office building. Now it is, in my bike case. Next to my road flares.

  • My motorcycle crash was 4 weeks ago. Hit by a truck turning left. After being airborne and passing out I woke up on the ground to firemen cutting my clothes off and holding my hand while I was screaming in pain. Having a list of phone numbers easily accessible would have been helpful. You would think you’d remember atleast one important number but with a hard hit to the head that isn’t always the case

  • To add to the video: always stop and check even if the bike is on it's stand. I was in a situation like this about a year ago. I was out riding one beautiful day after school like you do, but the road was under maintenance, so it was shitty. I'm talkin like third a fist sized rocks pretty much was the surface of the road. So casually I started fishtailing doing about 50kmh like nobodys business, and I lowsided and hit my head on a roadsign pole(I had slowed down quite a bit from sliding already) So casually, as you do, I go pick up my bike and sit down next to it cursing to myself, like you do after you've crashed and there's nobody to blame but yourself. A bunch of cars flew by me, nobody stopped. At this point, about 1 minute after the crash I fainted for a half a minute and woke up. Tried to push my bike towards my house (4km away) I managed to push it for like 50 meters, said fuck this, dropped the bike and started walking.(clearly I wasn't thinking clearly, what lunatic would drop his bike for no reason) At that point my gopro stopped recording so I don't know what happened excatly after that. According to my friend who was coming home from detention, he saw me walking (about a kilometer away from the crash), and asked me if I'm okay and where's my bike since I had my helmet still on. I apparently replied something along the lines of: I don't... Fuck fuck, my moms gonna kill me... Who are you? Can I borrow that bike? I need home.. *insert more mumbling* Then I apparently just hopped on to his bike and he told me to squeeze him, so I did, hard as fuck. He said that I squeezed him all the way to my house, and he would've stopped if I stopped squeezing. So great handling from him. My mom took me to the ER and I just had a concussion, broken right foot(one of those long feet bones) bruised right knee and a sore neck for a couple of days. My dad went to recover the bike after he got home from work. Anyways my point is, that I could've had way worse injuries, and nobody stopped to check on me. If someone was in critical condition, and did the same things as me(pick up the bike then go unconscious) he could've died.

  • I know it’s a bit late since the video was uploaded in 2018. But never assume you can’t reach emergency service with no signal. Try call 911 anyway. Most of them time emergency services are on their own network so they’ll still get your call! When it says no service it usually means you can’t use data to search on the web or call residential phones. Emergency ones should usually work fine

  • With the helmet... I don't know... In every first aid training we had, even vehicle first aid training we were told why and how to remove a helmet, reason behind it is if the patient is not awake he can suffocate in blood or puke (unconscious patiens can puke easily), if you are alone however is the best to not remove the helmet, but if you are more than one at the scene... Remove it (again that how we were told in first aid)

  • Rider or driver, I stop whenever I see someone in need. The last time I stopped, it was for a motorcyclist on the side of the road. Turns out he was just returning a call to his rather demanding wife. But I'd rather drive off and have a laugh at something like that than find out afterwards I could have helped someone who needed it, but didn't.

  • On a ride from New Mexico to Texas, I came across a fellow who was stopped at the side of the highway, still astride his bike. Turns out he'd gotten a bad vertigo episode and couldn't even put the sidestand down or swing a leg off his ride without falling over. With my assistance, he was able to get off, walk a couple of steps, and sit down. Turns out he was dehydrated and a bit overheated in the desert sun, so I gave him my bottled water (what, you don't carry a couple bottles of water in your luggage?) and got him back to 'mostly equilibrium'. A NMDOT work truck also stopped, and they volunteered to transport him and his bike to the next town. He declined... so both I and the work truck trailed him there, to make sure he made it ok. I've also had a rider spill on a group ride, and he showed signs of a concussion. He insisted on riding home, so our group escorted him all the way there, right to his driveway. Normally I would say in both these cases, riding is a Bad Idea, but if the subject (sorry, SAR habits die hard, never call them 'victims') doesn't want to heed your advice, best to safeguard them while they do whatever foolish thing it is that they are set on doing.

  • I knew most of these things even before a bought my first motorcycle.... yet all the crashes I had I've never fallowed any of these things, thankfully none of them were that serious but I always got up fast, removed my helmet, toss it in anger, and pull up my bike and move on LOL. I basically did all what ur not suppose to do.... I'm still alive and well but I'm aware I could've of died so many times. If you crash and you feel that your well and there people trying to help u out, let 'm do so, that's the biggest tip I can give u. Don't feel like you don't wanna make a big deal out of it cos even the slightest hit on your head can kill u and in rare cases could take a month in killing u and u wont even know it you gonna mistakes odd head aches by regular ones down the line until it's too late. Always accept help, and always go to an hospital for a check up after you had a crash no matter how minimum it was. (needless to say... always wear your helmet!!!!!!!!!)

  • Well done, learned some simple instructions that we can all remember. Plus was entertaining on a relatively boring subject for most. Having had a serious bike accident recently, the arriving care givers were great and did most things perfectly. They didn’t count on me insisting I take the helmet off with my already neck broken (no one knew including me). So even on a hot sunny Australian day, don’t allow the helmet off, even if it is claustrophobic!
