It's a huge responsibility to ride a motorcycle. You may fit easier in traffic and getting to your destination can be faster, but without the right equipment and steadfast awareness of your fast-changing surroundings, riding the bike can take a serious toll on your health, even your life.
This footage is quite disturbing, so be advised! One motorcycle rider in Novosibirsk, Russia manages to avoid a near-death experience on the highway at the last second after colliding head on with a truck taking a left turn. He swerves as he sees the truck entering the lane, but is unable to avoid it and falls on the road, before losing the bike and letting it crash and fly off the ground after hitting the rear of the truck!
As all traffic stops to avoid further damage, the biker manages to get up, check himself and his bike and after assessing the damage, or seemingly lack thereof, get back on and continues with his journey.
Thanks to all drivers who share these disturbing footage's, so that we might learn from the mistakes of other traffic participants. Be mindful of everyone on the road!

      He wasn't a fast thinking rider, he hit his brakes hard and went down. He did exactly what you're not supposed to do. It was by sheer luck that he didn't slide into or under the truck. He should have swerved and then braked properly as you are trained to do in basic motorcycle safety training.
