Maybe it's not such a bad thing that my wife won't ride on any of the bikes. My kids, on the other hand...

I think the overall message is simply, be careful out there. Shit is going to happen and you need to try and be prepared for it. I wasn't too disturbed by the story itself. I mean, they are just actors laying beside the road right?. However, what did disturb me were the images of that poor Norton just laying there all twisted.

But if they had used a Harley or Japanese sport bike, we all would have thought it was just another clip from YouTube.

That movie is one of the older Bike urban legends out there...leaving the passenger in the weeds while you try to figure out what happens. Even happened to a buddy of mine except his wife didn't die.

BTW for the record, if you are ever in that situation don't remove your helmet. Ever. The risk of compounding an existing injury or killing yourself (or paralysis) is staggering.

Yeah you know i though about that when he yanked it off
Then when the dude in the truck just grabed him off the road I was like dang dont ever do that.
I do some hard mountain bike riding and I have had to hold my friends down after they come to. After wiping out and tell them check your self out dude before jumping up .
well done short movie though nice production values and good editing.

Just makes me want to smoke.

My buddies nephew, Mark, always rode dirt/street bikes and rode them real hard. So he's got his cousin, Blake, on the back, they'd been out in the backwoods checking on their crop, and Mark's twisting the stick hard and they miss a turn, hit a ditch, and Mark wakes up and it's night. So he finds the bike, manages to get it started, and goes home. The next afternoon it dawns on him, after he can't find Blake anywhere's and nobody's seen him, that maybe Blake was with him when he crashed. So he gets in his pickup and goes back to find Blake in the ditch with a broken femur. He straps Blake on his ladder (he does odd jobs) and loads him in the back of his pickup and takes him to the hospital. I asked Blake what he was thinking when he finally woke up. He says, " I knew he'd be back, but I was wondering when."

I hit a car head on on a bike when I was 19. Knocked me out for an hour, broke my shoulder, my elbow, and my ankle. Fkd' up my summer.

you guys are all out.

It's all about how men are totally self centered. Women are throw aways. He didn;t care for her . . . He cared more for the meat he killed. (Putting his coat over the head of the beast . . . metaphors . . . ) He just expected her to be at her cell phone waiting for him to call. . . So he could get a sympathy fuck. He threw away his lighter . . . the "light" of his life. . . . the thing he used to get oral satisfaction. . . The message is not be careful out there . . . It's wake up, men have been doing this for centuries, and it will likely never change. That's why it affected you. Think about it.

Evil,

That was very good. I'm impressed. I just thought it was a movie about a dork that crashed his bike. I've got to get out more. Or read more. Or something.
