now a days, there's a lot of accident due to reckless driving of vehicle, and most of them are motorcycle, i was practicing driving my sister's wave, and suddenly bumped to the side of my dad's car, my left knee and left hand was injured, after that i promised to myself not to drive a motorcycle again coz i am afraid to bump again. have you ever experience an accident with a motorcycle?? how you endure those pain? or have you seen a motorcycle tragedy?

I really do not like motorcycle drivers as majority of them are irresponsible drivers. I have seen a lot of motorcycle accidents and a lot of them are the motorcycle's fault! They counter flow in the streets like they own the street. They just appear out of nowhere like ghosts, and they try to fit in on a space that is obviously too narrow for them to go to. The accidents that they meet are what they deserve for breaking such rules. If they followed directions and had just became careful, they would not meet any accidents at all.

I'm sorry you feel that way, I must disagree. The majority of motorcyclists are not irresponsible. I for one am an avid rider and do follow the rules of the road. I'm sure there are plenty of reckless riders out there just as there are many reckless "cage" drivers. cage is a word used for a car, truck or van. To say that most riders are irresponsible to me says you are looking at these things with a narrow mind. no offense intended. A few bad experiences with bikers should not condemn them as a whole or majority. Again no offense intended. The next time you are out on the road take a look at how many cage drivers are doing stupid and reckless things. Not all accidents are the bikers fault. There are a lot of distracted drivers out there that contribute as well.

I never experience such accident that involve motorcycle. I don't know how to drive a motorcycle though. I only saw it on the television, and it is way too dangerous than passenger car though. So, if you want to practice it, take regard the safety first, and wear the helmet for your head safety.

When I was in the province with my friend, her cousin taught us how to use a motorcycle. He had the motorcycle on its stand and he just showed us how to start it, the clutch and the brake. But when we're gonna try moving it, he told us that he would borrow a tricycle so we won't fall. It turned out to be a good idea since technically, I have driven a motorcycle, even though it was a tricycle. I probably would never drive a motorcycle though, I'd rather stick with a car. :)

Hi, way back two years ago I was involved in a motorcycle accident, It happen so fast that we are not aware that is was happening. We are riding a motorcyle at that time and we are speeding to the downtown I guess the speed is 80-100kph when the the front tire blew up, we ended up lying in the street with wounds and scratches in different parts of the body. My neighbor who was driving the motorcycle was badly injured and wounded, luckily he was wearing a helmet that save him, I was not wearing my helmet that time I am lucky too and I was not injured only small wounds in my knees and hands.

I drive motorcycle, but I never encountered those accidents. It is true that motorcycle accidents is very common and sometimes deadly. For me, practice makes perfect so, one small bump would not let me stop on things that I want to do. ;) Unfortunately, even if I want to drive the motorcycle, my father won't allow me to drive one. ;)

I've never seen a motorcycle accident but I've driven up on one, it wasn't fatal but the people had to lean their bike over to avoid a crash. I was on the back of a motorcycle when a fried did a wheelie and it dropped me off the back and I walked home in anger. A friend had a motorcycle and I sat on it but I lost my balance and it fell over. Since then I haven't been on a motorcycle and I think I'm done with them.

I am the one and only person in my home who did not learned motor cycle driving due to fear. Motorcycle has no safety if you or someone else hit you during driving. So I feel secure while driving Car instead of motorcycle. I think there must be a separate lane on the road for Motorcycle's.

Here in our country, motorcycle accidents are very common. That is why the government implemented a law wherein all motorcycle drivers must where helmet or else they will pay a penalty bill. I have never experienced bumping while riding my motorcycle. I'm always careful in driving mine.

No, I have never had the chance to ride a motorcycle before. It really is amazing to see people ride their motorcycle with only a helmet on. I sometimes wonder if they would be okay if they crashed into a car and went flying. The helmet would protect their heads but not the rest of their body. Then I wouldn't be comfortable with riding a motorcycle. I am lucky that I have never witnessed a motorcycle accident or seen a motorcycle crash.

Motorcycle accidents. I myself involved once with them. I was the driver of the car and in law, since they are smaller, they are right. In fact, I really feel that law is not fair as I clearly know I was not wrong. However, I moved on and just consider I am unlucky.

Despite using a motorcycle saves a lot when it comes to gas, it is very dangerous to drive one. My mom once tried to learn using it but while stationary, she got out of balance and she fell. She had abrasions on her arm. It was just from a stationary position, what more when falling from moving with high speed? I always wanted to try driving one but it just seems so dangerous. My brother thought so too. While I haven't experienced any motorcycle accidents, I have witnessed a few. One was when a delivery guy was driving and his motorcycle's wheel popped. He got out of balance, moved in waves, and fell of his ride real bad. Good thing he was able to stand up. Another one was in a major road. While a motorcycle was plainly moving inside the outer lane (right), a car from the middle lane decides to turn right to a street and bumped the biker. Also, he was safe. The third one was worse. I didn't know what happened but when I came out of the office, I saw a crowd and there was something up. When I walked up to them, there was a guy who was lying on the ground and his head was really bleeding bad. Oh, I just remembered that a couple and their bike fell while parking earlier that day. Motorcycles are just dangerous unless very skillfully handled. Stay safe.
