Default Rear-Ended Biker

Watch the video from the blaze. Very lucky; but, the bike is not so lucky!

Rear-Ended Biker Gets Jolted Into the Air, Lands on Feet & Captures it All on Helmet Cam | The Blaze

Ever wondered what it’s like being on a motorcycle and getting rear-ended? Well, this might be as close as you can get without being involved in a real accident.

A helmet video posted on YouTube shows a motorcycle rider come to a smooth stop at a traffic light. Seconds later, tires squeal, and metal crunches, as a woman rams the rider from behind. Amazingly, the man is jolted into the air and lands on his feet.

No information on the accident was posted with the video. The license plate in front of the biker does seem to be from California, however.

1) - I had to do a double take because I was sure Shihan was trying to get something over on the censor.

2) - Motorcycles. Your coffin will cost as much as your bike. It's been proven time and again. They just don't match up well when the Lug Nut rule is applied.

That was one lucky guy right there, and one totaled GSXR. I was a motorcycle tech for five years, and have lost one family member to a motorcycle accident. While I will ride the occasional crotch rocket around the block on a test ride, because I do side work out of my garage for extra cash, I will never own one. Cars and bikes don't mix. I own a dirt bike, but if you crash or anything, you aren't going to get hit by a car.

Just was checking the air in the tires of hers (and mine) today.

That's scary stuff. I used to have the same bike, just in white. All you riders be safe out there!

That was one lucky rider. I'm amazed that didn't end in a helmet-whipping. I've never had one actually hit me from behind, but been ran off the road plenty of times. Also caved in lots of doors and busted a lot of glass.

I had to watch that a couple of times. I still can't believe the rider was standing. Is it just me or does he slap that Montero on the way down? Must have gotten the jolt from the hood.

Same thing happend to me last summer. Sitting at a stop light, lady on a cell phone ran right into the back of me. I always make it a habbit of watching behind me while sitting there, but since we were ALL stopped, I was focusing on the light. Lady sees the turn lane to the left start to move and she just drives straight ahead. Sent my bike into the middle of the intersection, but I was able to walk away. Ended up having to put the bike into the shop for repairs from the damage for about 3 weeks. Felt bad for the lady, but was just glad she had insurance LOL.

I had a buddy get rearended at a stop light several years ago. He had both feet on the ground and the bick got shoved out from under him and the bumper of the camaro hit him in the back of the legs just hard enough for him to fall back on his rear and just sit their amazed at the sight of hit bike getting ran over by a bus in the intersection.

It was wrong but I had to laugh at that one.
