Description: Published on May 28, 2014

Take a look into how our family handles my youngest son's serious motorcycle crash during a canyon run. In this video you will see scenic and challenging moto riding in the intro transitioning to a serious injury to LastSuspect, admonitions of safety gear, and the details of injury. Hospital scenes with Mrs Nutnfancy. Whether you ride or not, this is a not to be missed part of the Nutnfancy experience.


For those who haven't watched the TNP YouTube Channel,

You skidded your front tire and went out of control, didn't you? You can't do that.

He can't drive a bike without abs.

A guy got killed here yesterday morning on a motorcycle. He ran into the back of a car on the freeway. Initial reports were he was speeding and doing wheelies when he ran into it. Theyre also testing to see if he was drunk. Updates after have been leaving the doing wheelies part out. That was reported by witnesses on the scene, but news is backing away from that. I have been passed cruising at 70mph by riders doing wheelies before. I guess its cool if you get away with it. I dont know anyone who rides that dont have scars or broken bones. The saying is theres 2 kinds of riders...those that have wrecked and those that are going to.

Yeah, they discussed getting ABS, but said the cost and learning how to ride w/o abs first ruled it out. (At least part of that discussion was in the video).
I have to say for the amount of trauma he had, the kid handled it well. Looks like the "depussification" worked.

ABS isn't going to save you in a turn, unless he has Bosch's new MSC system.

I feel for the kid but it`s not surprising.
If you want to be a road racer go to a track.
That`s why I won`t hardly ride in a group, a lot of times I just want to "cruise" and most of the groups I have ridden in seem to be in a big hurry to get where they are going.
And it`s not age, I have ridden since I was 15 and I never had the itch to go tearing up the road.
I had muscle cars for that.
