      Unfortunately the level of stupidity and lawlessness that exists on the roads now is such that even if everyone slowed down it would only help by about 40%

      And I’m not speaking to this incident as I have no idea what happened or who was in the wrong.

  2. Point boy says:

    No way that little bike goes fast enough to do that kinda of damage to that car!

    Apoarently the driver of a grey minibus who was inconvenienced by this accident took it upon himself to drive over the wreckage and take off, despite pleas by people trying to help the injured rider. I hope they find out who that was.

    One of the problems that some people who ride bikes do not know how to “counter steer “.

    Here in the tutorial which should be PRACTICED initially at slow speeds until this skill is perfected.

    At normal safe riding speeds.

    FACT :-
    1 ) Turning to the right requires the rider to lean the bike to the right.
    2 ) Turning to the left requires the rider to lean to the bike to the left.

    3) NOTE : The bike will continue to turn to the right of left unless you do something to to correct that situation.

    The correction is called ” counter steeing ” by sighty turning the handlebars in the opposite direction to your intended course.

    If a ride does not do this by counter stearing they will hit something.

    Simply put :- RIGHT hand corners control bike with more pressure using RIGHT hand.
    LEFT hand corners control bike with more pressure using LEFT hand.

    The meaning of the word “counter” is this article is STEER OPPOSITE TO.

    Every corner has its own safe turning speed .
    Watch out for Bermuda’s DOUBLE CORNERS.
    No two corners are alike.
    Always reduce speed before entering every corner.
    Never use front brake while in a corner.
    Be extra carefull riding on wet / oily roads.

    It’s not just a matter of speed it’s not paying attention to the road and staying focused.

    A pebble can crack a windshield if you go fast enough!

    Never move a bike from the parked position unless you are sitting on it with both feet securely planted on the ground for suport and mobility.

    Failure to do so, the bike may loose balance and topple away from you with you on top of it
    topple towards you with you trapped under the bike with the added risk of fire from spilled gas.

    On a hill always, apply the REAR BRAKE to preven the bike from rolling forward or backward.

    ALWAYS secure your bike or kick stand before moving off.

    Never move a bike from the parked position unless you are wearing your bike helmet.

    Either way you will get seriousely hurt for life.

    How many have never read their bike manual ?

    Come on guys ride safe, you can do it !
