Great safety video
« on: December 07, 2011, 01:01:37 am »
Anyone remember who this guy is?? HA!

Whoever did the vidoe did a great job of laying over common objects we see and....hopefully avoid... everyday.

Thanks for posting... Some great m/c safety videos come from over the pond.

I think that is a photoshop video. Cannot believe they would leave that stuff close to a track...Tim

They don't. The point is, the racetrack is set up so you can low side and slide off the track and come to a stop slowly. Reducing injury.

Those who think they are johnny-racer on the street are more likely to slam into something which kills them after they fall off the bike.

ya think?   :D   IMHO that is the key point of the video and what the OP implied. Racing has enough potential danger... and racing around the everyday hazards of the street is not a good thing... so why race on the street?  Although very well done, the hazards were probably digitally overlayed on the video. This is evident in the manner in which they cut scene just before impact.

What a great way to visualize the old saying, "A time and place for everything".
