Rider Misses a turn

To go right push on the right bar, to go left push the on left bar. This called counter steering and you learned how to do it when you learned how to ride a bicycle. Use your front brake mainly and use the rear brake lightly. Look where want to go, not where you are going. Always look far ahead and when in traffic behind a car, ride to one side of then lane or the other so you look around the car and see whats going on up ahead. Take your advice from riders who have been riding a long time, the older/wiser the better.

You will crash eventually so get geared up. And remember this, there two kinds of motorcycle riders. Those who have crashed and those that are going to.

There are old riders and there are bold riders but there are no old and bold riders.

When in doubt, don't stand the bike up in a panic... Look where you want to go and lean that SOB over and get it done.

it astonishes me the shock this guy was in, just stands over her and looks at her. a 5 minute video and the only thing that changed was rolling her over, removing her helmet, and putting a coat over her.

He got a good view of her, front and back. The guy behind them was calling the ambulance according to what he told her. He tried to talk to her and keep her calm, stop her from thrashing about, and keep her awake. He didn't do an exceptionally good job, and I don't know if it was the right move to remove her helmet (though she did claim that she couldn't breathe), but I'm really not sure what else he could have done...

I missed that, didn't listen to the video just watched it on mute. Hindsight is always 20/20, but the layers of clothing and her jacket can hide a good amount of blood.

Either way, glad she is ok and no real serious injuries.

Yeah I mean... Just seems like a normal turn, not even that sharp... ATGATT... or learn how to turn to the left.. She should have been watching more NASCAR.

Definitely a target fixation error. That seems to be the cause of most single motorcycle accidents.

That's what I was going to say, could have ended way worse.
