I dont know the rider but from the long list of injuries I think its safe to say He is quite a ways away from "OK" but, thankfully he WILL be but it's going to be a long road ahead. How to avoid injury on a bike? DONT RIDE any other way there are no gaurantees. High speed backroad riding is a passion and very dangerous, everyone knows that. happens to the best of um move on forward and be carefull as possible.

You can analyze it however you want but the bottom line is accidents happen and people crash. Sucks but it's part of riding. If you think you won't ever crash your being naive. You do your best to avoid it but it could happen to anyone at anytime. To many variables to say how and why and what could've/can be done to not crash. Just ride as careful a you can, be observant, prepare for IF you do go down, and hope for the best.

BS sometimes just happens. If you never want to be involved in an accident, don't ride. Yes the majority of them can be avoided but sometimes...

99% of them can be avoided.

As much as it may be painful, it is always beneficial to discuss and review crashes to try and determine why, and how to avoid in the future.

Assuming " happens" basically is putting a blind eye towards learning and being a better rider.

The old saying goes something like "If you can't learn from your mistakes, you are doomed to repeat them"..

I'm old and don't bounce worth a .. and I have been down plenty of times. Guess I am funny like that and don't like sliding down the road counting the $$ as parts fly off the bike.

What I know I said in the OP. From what I've been told he hit a bump and got a wobble that he couldn't regain from right before a curve in the road. Ran off the road and took out a fence and a few poles. Poles are what did the damage.
