Bike Hits the Tree, Rider Misses It by Inches

As nice as riding a motorcycle on back roads and through forests may be, doing so also comes with some extra hazard. It's not the uneven ground and loose earth on the trails: it's the trees!
While some might say that pretty much any rider has enough skills to avoid crashing into a tree, things in real life are a bit different. A small mistake can lead the rider onto a slightly wider path or cause him/ he to lose balance; couple this with the risky business of braking hard on loose ground, and there you go, ready to crash.

And as if simply coming off the bike was not enough, such a scenario with trees close to the trail one is following can easily lead to situations like the one in this video. Lucky, lucky, lucky we daresay: should the rider hit the tree head-on, the outcome would've most likely been on the "we cant show you this" side.
