Massive Bike Fail on Multiple Levels

It’s never too late to get hurt while riding a motorcycle, so you can figure out for yourselves that new, inexperienced riders crashing is one of the really common types of fail. However, it never ceases to amaze me the way people make the same mistakes over and over again. And this is happening in times when hundreds of “fail video” channels are being updated regularly, and effortlessly accessible from common smartphones around the world.

The video after the jump is a great way to show the world that being reckless is not an age thing. Since the young girl may be excused for her lack of experience, the other chaps who instructed her on how to ride a dirt bike should be credited with all the blame. I mean, if you’re good enough to provide advice for rookies, then we should assume you know on or two things about riding, isn’t it? Or is it?

Whiskey throttling is probably the number one cause for crashes, as it’s usually the first thing that goes wrong with new riders swinging a leg over a motorcycle for the first time. Given the high chances of a bad ending to the ride, some safety precautions are mandatory, such as a tame bike, riding gear or at least a helmet, and… clearance.

Having an inexperienced rider wearing shorts, sandals and no helmet riding a punchy dirt bike in a yard full of parked cars and seeing her or him missing the first one before crashing hard into the next one almost tastes like success. Poor girl will feel that in the morning… That is, pain, not success. And you guessed what tomorrow’s editorial will be about.
