Gamble with Death--Ride a motorcycle.

    Both motorcyclists and those that have never ridden know that riding one on the open roads is fraught with danger of serious or even fatal injuries. Besides the inherent danger of motorcycling too many riders are not properly trained and too often are inattentive in a situation that can be merciless if you allow your mind to stray.

    It's bad enough in the US but take a look at this accident in the PRC. Both the driver of the truck and the motorcyclists are totally clueless on what they are doing or should be doing.

    In this case the motorcyclist appears to emerge with injuries that are probably serious but it could have ended dramatically worse for him.

    ADDENDUM: Notice that not only does the truck driver appear clueless to the bike but also to the car coming the other way down the street.

    I watched this video yesterday, someone had shared it on facebook. Even the people who were crossing by had to be really careful saving the rider. Indeed a risky and full of dangers is this 2 wheel demon.

    Let's see... his legs are out -- full panic ... which tells me his brain gave out and in full "HOLY SHIT MODE" or his bike lost the brakes.

    Quite possible, feels like the same happened with Aryton Senna when he died.
