Advice for responding to a crashed rider

This seems like good, common-sense advice to me. Trying to stay as calm as possible is always rule #1, of course.

Good info. Thanks for posting. Here's another thing you should think about.
This is an investment that is well worth the effort.

Good simple advice.
I've seen enough wrecks unfortunately that I know people tend to not listen and try to pull their helmet off immediately and go pick up their bike even though you're begging them to sit down and leave it on until the adrenaline wears off.
Adrenaline is a hell of a drug.
Drugs are a hell of a drug.
I saw one young man crash and I stopped to assist. He'd blown a corner, gone into a ditch and jumped, he hit a tree with his body and the bike tumbled.
When I saw it I was sure he was going to be badly messed up. But he was up and moving around and insisted he was "fine". He refused treatment by the EMTs and I got my car to drive him home An hour after the crash he wasn't so fine and went to the ER.
Turns out he'd taken vicodin and smoked a joint before going riding and couldn't feel a thing. (he doesn't get invites out anymore)

1. Safely spot your motorcycle out of the way.
2. Ensure the scene is not immediately dangerous to you or those helping.
3. Assess the scene and determine the make/model/year of the motorcycle. If Harley or GSXR, leave immediately.
