When you get behind the handlebars of a motorcycle, it feels almost like the decision is split between people who think that safety equipment is a necessity and those who think that it’s cumbersome and something that isn’t really all that necessary and that people go overboard with it. In either scenario, you can bet your bottom dollar that the rider on board this bike is probably thanking their lucky stars that they were strapped up and ready to take a fall. However, beyond being safe, it looks like there were some other factors at play here that helped the rider to avoid what many who saw the incident probably would have chalked up to be certain death.
The scene is set as someone finds themselves traveling down the highway and filming their ride on their motorcycle, first person, as the bike begins to develop a bit of an unfortunate speed wobble. However, before the rider is able to react in order to correct the incident, it turns out that it gets too intense to handle, actually throwing the bike sideways and tossing the rider to the ground as the poor individual is left to do nothing but skid across the surface of the highway, making every single person who watches something like this cringe on the inside as you get the feeling of your skin as it begins to crawl.
To make things even worse, the whole thing happens next to a semi truck and the rider is headed under it! If you follow along with the video below, you’ll be able to put yourself on the scene of the incident that day as you can’t help but feel for this person as it all goes down, but once they skate right under that trailer, you almost breathe a sigh of relief for the rider! From the look of things, the injuries, while probably not life-threatening, might hurt a bit for a little while, but the Hollywood style slide is something that will stick with this rider forever.
