Coastrider did an excellent job of deconstruction of the beginning of the crash. There were tons of clues to be seen if you would have only given yourself enough visual lead time to locate and decipher them. Unfortunately, what I saw was way too much bunching up and "hanging with the bros," group mentality showing off, and other macho posturing, with not nearly enough risk management. If you had given yourself enough time to respond, vice react when things got hinky this story would have had a very different outcome.

I'm hoping that you post your videos, and especially your post of this video, coupled with your interrogative, in search of advice. I'm not betting the mortgage payment on it, but I am hoping. If you are posting these things to impress, then mission accomplished. I'm impressed, just not favorably.

Bottom line? Until you and your "friends" figure out that our roads are not Talladega and 3 seconds between vehicle is more important to sustain, not avoid, you will be destined to repeat these stupid mistakes. I can only hope, but again not bet on, that no one gets seriously injured.

^I am discussing a personal injury claim with a lawyer and his information gathering paperwork warns specifically about any social media I may have discussing anything related because insurance companies use that information in their defense.

I’ve already said too much...

These videos are likely posted primarily to get YouTube clicks, which turn into cash for the vlogger.

You really really need to do a reality check. Most of your videos involve crashes. I think that everyone on this forum can see what's in your future except you.

Other than Asstear, these are pretty good constructive comments. I love the breakdown with freeze frames showing speed and bike position. I agree with your assessment. I really don't think I would have crashed if it was not for the other rider being there. I didn't plan on touching the brakes once I was on gravel.

Just to answer the observation about posting for youtube clicks yes I want people to watch the videos I edit. No, I am not making any money on this. When a advertisement runs on this, and most of my videos it is because the song I used was copyrighted so they run an ad allowing me to keep the song.

I love the bike community and want to keep riding. This requires me to not crash all the damn time. So I am going to have to make some adjustments. More track days for sure!

Love the feedback. Both of my last two crashes could have been better off with some more dirt experience/ more experience.

That gravel looked fairly solid, as gravel goes. Very much able to be safely ridden on, as witnessed by the non-crashed bikes ahead of you in the video. Could have even pulled off going around the downed rider, if done correctly. Get your butt off the seat, be smooth, let the bike float under you, etc, etc...dirt riding skills..etc. Learned a lot of mine on a mountain bike, the crashes were slower but the pain they caused are still a reminder.

That said, the time to avoid that crash was in the planning stages of the ride (know at least a little something about the road you are riding) or well before you ever got on the gravel. Check your speed on sections you don't know, and RTFS (Read the F**king Signs).

All accepted other than the gravel was deep and mushy after the pavement ended. Following distance increased would have increased my vision for sure.

Track days to satisfy your need for speed, but overall, get your eyes 12 seconds out ahead of you and actually search for the stuff that is going to help you kill yourself.

Look
Perceive
Analyze
Plan
Execute (and adapt as needed)

What an idiot. People like you get what they deserve when they crash. Hopefully you won’t hurt anyone else when you go down. Your previous u tube videos will provide incontrovertible evidence at your apparent lack of riding skills and disregard for the safety of others.
