Aftermath of Harley Davidson Sportster Motorcycle Crash

  • Published on Sep 7, 2016
  • Just a video of me explaining how I got into a wreck, what happened to me, and what happened to the bike. I am completely not at fault as the other person crossed into my right of way without looking. My bike days will most likely be over because although its fun, it is not worth your life when you someone else is not paying attention. I got lucky that nothing more serious happened to me cause rolling into a car at 30 MPH can cause some serious damage.

    Brother heal and then wheel again, don't give up its a way of life, the cagers do not look out for us, but I will be damned if they ever keep me off my Harley. Yes I have been hit as well, beat up bad and riding again. Peace to you brother.

    Its clearly obvious youre a dumbass who has very little ride expertise. You need to keep your gay ass in a car because you dont need to be out with the real bikers who know how to ride.

    Another useful understanding of safety while riding with traffic is the Solomon study from 1964, where he found there were less accidents when you travel at no more than than 5.5 mph faster than the surrounding traffic.
    See section 2.1

    Tough, and you are young. The way to look at it is. We ride because we like the dopamine. It is what intelligent humans do in their down time. You have the chance to see if there is another way of getting your dopamine. Just dont do it artificially. Understanding why you ride helps you accept the risk. A friend taught me a useful way of understanding traffic. The vehicles are like cattle, and you are moving among them. Try not to startle them, or panic them. Understand that in your vicinity their awareness of you ensures you are safe, because they have no intent to cause you harm. It's only when another vehicle comes into your group or vicinity that you have to make sure they are aware of you. It is your onus to make them aware of you. Loud pipes can help, as can a horn, but you risk panicking someone in your group, or making them agitated. The best thing to do is ride as though every new car in your vicinity has not seen you. Work out the mirror angles, and use lane position to advantage their chance of seeing you. You don't have to worry about the car that has seen you or is aware of your presence. It is only the vehicles that have not had the pleasure of your company. We all know that feeling of safety on the road when the vehicles around us are aware of us. Instinctively an aware vehicle will also accommodate you in their actions. Pulling over to the side of the lane, allowing you to filter, or looking before changing lanes.
    I understand exactly why I ride, I understand the risk and the reward. Minimizing that risk is every long term riders challenge, so that we can continue to get that dopamine. The dopamine effect is what makes us attractive to people. Our natural high has a beneficial effect on all those around us. Like any drug its addictive, and not getting addicted is key. If you ride too often , or it becomes an everyday part of your life, the need for dopamine will require you to take more risks. Being aware of that is key. More risks does not equate to more experience. But will increase the likelihood of an accident. While you are off your bike, monitor your need for dopamine and the withdrawal. Be aware of your moods, and have a go at substituting it without drugs. Study a new subject, join a social club, ask a good looking girl out on a date. Then rethink what the motorcycle's role in your life is. It's a medication. An access to pleasure, that benefits you and everyone around you. We dont abuse alcohol, or drugs, or sexual gratification without consequences. So treat your riding as a therapy for mental well being, and don't overdo it. Ride because you need to not because you want to.
    Sorry about the lecture, but you were brave to post this and we all learned something. So thanks.

    Needed to brake and the “bike fell over” that means he smashed the front brakes because of zero riding experience. This is what happens when you have no experience. Go buy a 250honda learn how to ride then later buy a Harley

    Always wear a jacket boots and gloves and full helmet. Also your bike can be fixed . Harley's are rock solid bikes as long as you don't bend the frame or damage the engine. Every thing else can be replaced for cheap and put back on with only little effort and tools. That being said go buy a set of Allen and star sockets you'll need them.

    To hell with those negative comments. It takes a lot to share your experience with others who could learn from you. Thanks for sharing. My heart goes out to you. You said your doctor told you not to lift anything over five pounds; well, I had a back injury and was told not to lift anything over ten pounds. So, I asked the doctor, how am I supposed to pee? GOD blessed you and HE will continue to do so.

    I’ve been riding 40 years and never been down. It is called defensive driving, and road awareness. I’ll be doing my second ride across the country and back at the end of July. Why am I writing this? Because I believe you can ride safely, with minimal risk. It just takes being aware, and riding within your skills. And just a tiny bit of luck.

    I’ve been hit twice and still riding. You’re not a real biker until you get back up on the bike. Take a motorcycle safety course, you shouldn’t have laid down your bike. If you were properly trained you wouldn’t have gotten hurt so bad. Can’t stop your momentum if your sliding or skidding. Traction is what reduces impact. Riding a motorcycle without training is no different than owning a gun without being trained

    I'm on the other side of the planet and I could predict it was a woman who drove out infront of you, without even hearing your description of what had happened. Does that tell you something? This problem is WORLDWIDE! It's therefore, FAMOUS as a problem! Humans STILL call the object a cycle. A motorcycle. Cycle means pedal object. It's never outgrown what it always was. It's just a bi cycle with a motor, and that means its just a tiny delicate thing. You got fooled by the size of the population, which influenced you into thinking the MOTORbike turns a bloke into superman! A superman that CAN DO the speed limit. You're extremely lucky you've got a second chance at life! And now you can tell your mates and the public to go away cause you're going to make up you own mind from now on and NOT be focusing on other drivers terrible behaviour. Humans are MAD at this point in time. You could have bought the bike and never ridden the thing. Making an investment in something is a good option to have. Most people buy into companies that they NEVER do anything with it. Most people are liars and completely insane! Stop listening to people! People want $70,000 now for 1970's Datsun cars for example! People from all groups are equally insane!

    I got my licence 46 years ago, and have dodged all kinds of people trying to kill me. It doesn't matter if you are in a car or on a bike, defensive driving/riding will keep you alive a well. They'll kill you in a parking lot or crossing the street, if you give them the chance. Keep your eyes open and be ready for anything that can happen.

    Damn man sorry to hear this. Wrecked my 883 in 2015 going 60Mhz in HOV when an idiot driver jumped/stopped right in front if me totalling my 2014 883. I came out quite lucky with only a few muscle tears in neck, back, left hand almost broke but just major sprain. Left shoulder went out of socket and that sucked but Im ok at least. I'm glad you're, for the most part, ok. I know how it feels man hang in there. Im getting the urge to drive a bike again and you will too. I'm just not going to do it as a daily driver but just on weekends taking it very easy. Heal up and take care.

    You should have taken cyclecruza lessons... Cyclecruza says you launch yourself off your footpegs just before impact... you saw the accident coming you should have launched yourself off the bike... And while launching you should have grabbed your phone and took a picture while flying thru air... Landing softly on left knee.. On right foot supporting yourself with left fist... Like how superheroes land in some action movie.

    woman pulled out in front of me 8 months ago... i hit a guardrail with my road kind at 50 trying to avoid her car. I and my bike went flying. i don't know how but i managed to not break anything. my right foot got crushed between my bike and the guardrail because i hit the guardrail sideways. tore the all the tendons and ligaments in my left shoulder and ligaments in my left knee. took me two months to be able to walk again. i had my bike rebuilt. whole new compete front end, had to have the frame straightened... body work and paint... lots of other parts. $6,500 and I'm back on the road. man i know the feeling of wanting it to be one and done but if you want to ride... ride. fix or replaced but get back on. i fixed mine because it belonged to my dad who passed away so i had to fix it. don't be scared to do what you love. it's all about the ride man.

    Sorry you crashed dude.. Get rid of that pile of bolts and get something with 2 front rotors and can handle .. Rode a mans Harley once.. Came back ,shook his hand and told him that i am in awe that his still alive., Cant stop, breaks are iffy as fuck, cant corner cuz you bottom out and fly on the other lane, heavy as fuck.. Constantly 3/4 throttle to even get moving that pile of bolts. Your legs are somewhere infront. Totaly non ergonomic position, unstable bike.. If you want to live and be comfy get a GS 1200 , KTM Adventure 1190,, V Strom 1000 and blow any harley away . Real bike and shit, that cant do anything but make noise and make you polish some chrome ...

Soon as I was able to walk again I immediately bought a CBR 1000RR, fuck this pussy quitting shit.
    Anyway, how's the Harley, is it totalled? You gonna fix it? Don't be talking about quitting riding, buck up and get over it, I did and now I've got two bikes and I fucking love em. Just got the Low Rider S and it is one sweet bitch. Ride on brother, never say never again.

Somehow he managed to avoid being hit & swerved away & ended up striking a concrete lamp post, (this was at an intersection not on open Highway) flew over the handle bars & head-butted the post, breaking the Helmet in 2 pieces.
    Walked away from it but never rode again.
