first motorcycle accident I seen and got on GOPRO

so it was a big group ride.we all bout to hit trans mtn in el paso Texas.I told the group not to make it a race since its too many riders and plus its not a track.so guess on of the guys didn't commit to his line and ran off the road.he went off roading for a bit then hopped over handle bars and ran into the wires by his bike.luckily he was fine and will be riding soon thank god.
mind u this mtn this year at least 5people this year have died on this ...rip to the riders.

It was the bike's fault. Darn zooks..........

But really, glad he was ok. Must've fallen "good" since he was only wearing jeans and a hoodie...

That was quite the miscalculation. Agree with bacchus that I don't do big group rides. Stupid shit is bound to happen.

you call that a turn? videos with guys running straight off the road in gentle flowing curves on flat ground amuse me.

On a positive note, at least he was ok...

Well done to you too buddy. You didnt mess about, you were right there in a flash to help him. You wouldnt see this kind of helping force in a car driver.
