Instructional Video: How you should not ride.
Please ride safe and see this as an example of what NOT to do. Accidents happen everyday and for motorcyclists the danger is even more real. Wearing the proper gear can save your life and other parts of your body from injury. Wear Gear! Wearing gear is not the only decision you have to make as a passenger. Who you ride with can save your life as well.

The wreck results in the passenger"s foot being detached from her leg. Miraculously no bone were broken. Luckily there was an off duty medical professional that witnessed or arrived on scene minutes after the accident.
