I think this one counts

Not known to me personally, just something in the local news.

"The motorcyclist, who was wearing only shorts and a T-shirt, had to be cut free from the vehicle by rescuers using the “jaws of life”"

.........

"Witnesses said they saw the motorcyclist swerving between traffic"

That is just crazy... No gear at all, an accident that should have killed him several times over, and he walks away. I am glad he is not to seriously hurt, but this could have a bad effect also.

Sometimes people defy the odds, but I am afraid this serves as a bad lesson. He probably wont learn a thing and will continue to ride like an idiot, or even worse, emboldened by walking away from this one...

Give him some credit, he probably had a baseball cap so that he would not get sunburned while he rides

I bet he lost both his baseball cap and his flip-flops in the crash. Fortunately, this gear can probably be replaced for about $15.
