Amusing how they run to rescue the unoccupied bike at emergency speed, while they leave the rider rolling around on the ground unattended.

The second bike landed upside down, I'll give that an 8/10 for style.

Dress for the ride, not the slide. Or is it the other way around? I forget.

Oh, and if you're going to film dumbass motorcycle accidents for our amusement, can you at least do us the kind favor and aim your freakin' helmet mount properly. Thank you.

The second guy to go down was quick to high side his bike instead of hitting that car head on. Why these guys do this stuff without good safety equipment is beyond me. Survival of the Fittest at work here. They were luck.

Nice cheap way to get a tattoo and one Schwinn is in the perfect position to change that ratty tire.

Only cool thing about this video is the 2nd bike stopping upside down,....that's impressive! Do it again dumbass!!

I don't feel one faint glimmer of concern or pain for these road vermin. Had it coming in my opinion. In fact if I saw that happen around me in my car I'd report the event and license number to the police even if he didn't dump it.
