Everyone knows that riding a motorcycle is dangerous. That’s why, when it comes to motorcycle riding, there are two types of people: 1) those who don’t enjoy experiencing the sensation of danger and, therefore, don’t ride motorcycles and 2) those who enjoy a little bit of danger and ride motorcycles.
Of course, you could probably throw a third group into the mix — those who would maybe like to ride a motorcycle and just can’t afford one — but you get the point. Ultimately, if you choose to ride a motorcycle, you accept the risks that come along with it.
While bikers may enjoy the thrill that comes with riding a motorcycle, you can’t imagine that, unless something is seriously wrong with them, crashing said motorcycle is their end goal. But motorcycle crashes happen all the time and barely even make the local news. Why? Because some people pull crazy stunts like the guy in the above video and push their riding limits to the extreme.
Now, since the video is only six seconds long, we don’t get to see the immediate aftermath of the motorcycle accident. So, hopefully, the biker didn’t end up suffering any serious injuries. That being said, you can’t go full throttle through this much water and not expect an outcome like this.
It’s like the biker saw someone do a similar stunt in a James Bond movie or something and thought he could recreate it. Or, he must’ve just been all the more determined to beat his buddy in their beach race. Hey, the other guy may have placed second, but at least he had the wherewithal to ease up a bit when the tide rolled in so he wouldn’t epically wipe out.
Maybe the bruises from the crash and his newfound internet infamy will teach the unfortunate biker of our tale that first place isn’t everything.
