At the 8:53 mark death wobbles, never on a bike but lots on a skateboard as a kid. 2:56 mark how anyone got out GMF'd.

Why did it do that?
My bike wobbles a bit if I have weight on the back. I tighten the steering damper.

That is unbelievable, isn't it?

So, what does GMF'd mean? I cannot find an appropriate acronym here: https://www.acronymfinder.com/GMF.html

Can't click like (obviously some must have been badly bruised), but a 'very good' collection :O) + a good reminder to stay alert vs one's own (or other's) tendencies towards routine (or brainlessness). The "Incredible Wobble Man" chosing to ride without protection gear, must have been shaved clean to the bones here and there... urgh.

Riders out in warm weather wearing shorts and bare arms. Crazy!

I imagine it must have been quite uncomfortable falling off at that speed and in that clothing.

Touring Harleys always seem to be massively laden out back and I've never seen one suffer for it before. Perhaps he didn't check his tyre pressures before heading out.

What got me was at 0:54, with the rider just riding away after hitting the ped.

Yes, like it was the pedestrians fault!
