WTB: PW50 Bike for my kids
Have to agree, most crashes are caused by other vehicles but thats a risk that we all know and have to accept when riding on the street.
Just be careful out there guys. Drive safely and gear up..... leave the rest to fate and enjoy the ride.
One piece of advice, when going on bridges, like mentioned in the video, cars seem to slow down...... just give plenty of space to slow down if need be. Remember bikes take longer to stop than cars.
At 0:38 of the video you see just how dangerous it is to ride in the city. Outside the city there are FAR less incidents. Just think how different the stats would be if we just rode our motorcycles outside city limits.
Why do I ride in the mountains and outside city limits? that graphic is exactly the reason why I do.
is it just me or did they show mostly motorcyclists on cruisers with no gear?
First bike:2011 Ninja 650r orange/black - crashed June 19/2012

Weekend morning, wake up at 5:30am or 6:00am, coffee, a little BCSB surfing, text the bruthas to make sure everyone is up, get on the bike and get the fuck outta dodge for 12 hours.
If all you do is ride your sportbike in the lower mainland, you not only are increasing your risk, but you are missing out on all the real fun.
DON'T STUFF THE CAGERS!
Nice signal / lane change at the end lol lol wow wonder how Many Of those Crashes Where Over The 70/80 MPH MARK maybe 2 percent proof that riding Slow Killz
So the most crashes happen where the most people live? SHOCKING.
My bikes: A random assortment of junk I found in a barn and fixed up.
IIRC, most accidents occur at intersections, often when a car turns left in front of an approaching motorcyclist; ergo, if you avoid interesections by riding outside of town your risk arguably decreases considerably.
I'd also suggest that, on average, drivers are much better in the US than in BC (e.g. more aware of surrounding traffic) so I believe it is safer to ride in the US than BC.
Work sucks -- let's go riding!

Thank gandalf there's an ICBC map to give me back my feeling of freedom! I was so lost without it!
"Yamaha" - it's Japanese for "fuck your sports car."
probably less high speed accidents for cruisers with more body damage vs. outright fatalities for sport bikes. gear wont be much good hitting a rock face at 200kph.
