The cost to repair those items listed are far more that those prices in the US. The typical surgery in the US cost about $20-30,000. Add that up to the multiple surgeries to fix what is sustained in a crash and you got a nice little bill. That's if you survive the crash.

That guy's hands are extremely cheap. Mine are worth way more than $1000 for the pair.

I'm guessing it was cumulative, as blood was given per whatever volume, bone marrow per gram, etc. and at the end it said "Realize yourself on the organs market"... Maybe that's just what your body is worth if you have to part it out to other people after you total it.

I figured that was the case, just seemed like a racial jump when they were starting off with simple math. The message still stands, though.
Another angle could have just been, how much is it worth to not be brain damaged and in a permanent vegetative state?

Gear may be expensive depending on what brands you buy; however, even if you purchased all top of the line and most expensive gear across the board, it still won't come close to all the medical bills that you have to pay off once you lay down your bike not to mention all the pain, suffering, and time off that you'll need to rehab. Some won't even get up again, some just won't wake up.... So it's a better trade to me.

It's expensive if you never use it. But when you do, it's a bargain.

Agreed. I wore all my gear in my accident and still racked up $18,000 in medical bills (best to have insurance as well).
