Default Hard lesson learned

Found this on a Ducati forum


Lessons I can see here:
  1. pedestrians can be as dangerous as cagers
  2. don't ride beyond your skill (had to be riding in a mode without rear lift detection)

Gear prolly saved him a lot of hurt. Especially the helmet seeing how it looks like the bike landed on him

Ha just had a dummy do that to me a couple weeks ago. F"cker ran right across in front of me. I stopped and told th [email protected] to come here. Asked hom why he did it. He saw me slowing down or something and assumed he could predict what i was gonna do. If yur gonna jay walk without waiting for traffic to clear for ar least 6 seconds, be prepared to get the sh$t knocked out of u because thats what i would have done. I love contact sports.
