    Yeah, I reakon if I showed my wife that video, she'd be worried sick every time I head out of my garage. It's true to the point that safe motorcycling is all about awareness and common sense, the video makes it look worse than it is though. I was just pissed that after all that, you didn't even get the courtesy of a burnout or wheelie!

    True - but (I think) since this video is made by our equivalent of LTNZ/ACC it's more of an awareness tool.

    As a SV1000 rider you are obviously not new to motorcycling and probably know everything on the vid so well that it's all subconcious for you... however newbies have much to learn from it.

    A wheelie would have been great though - he could have wheelied off into the Sunset instead of parking it into his garage.

    Where was the sudden smash and gruesome aftermath?
    How are they going to scare people into riding slowly if they just show them what to look out for and stuff?
    It's almost like they're trying to educate riders or something...


    Neat vid

    Downloading it. Will add further comments once it arrives.

    Edit: Nice movie. Love the message.

    Think!
    You don't get warnings like these in the real world
    90% of the time spent writing this post was spent thinking of something witty to say. It may have been wasted.

    Will do PF. Anyone have suggestions of downloadable clips I could put onto a DVD along a similar vein.
