Didn't crash, but had a blow-out (!) on front tire of my 750 Norton at about 70 mph, started a wobble so bad I had to hold on tight to bars, couldn't steer, left road, went into Arizona desert, missed a lot of .....stuff, finally the sand slowed me up and ....I stopped. Lucky it was on a road with no traffic at night, and I had a friend behind me ready to whisk me to the hospital. Better believe my ass had the seat in a death grip! As I sat there sweating bullets, my buddy rolls up and told me I had provided him with some excellent entertainment. And the suspense! Was I going to ride into the side of a boulder?? or hit a giant sagauro cactus? How badly was I going to be hurt? would I even survive? was he actually going to witness a traffic fatality? He said he was on pins and needles.

Had two mishaps during learning phase. During my first ride, I wasn't aware of counter steering after a certain speed and steered into a tree that I was trying to avoid. Luckily only superficial damage to both bike and myself. Second time was during a pre-learners course when practicing emergency stopping. I got too enthusiastic and locked the front wheel and in an instant I hit the ground. I broke a shoulder bone that time. That was 18 months ago. I enjoy riding but I'm very aware of the dangers so I try to stay focused and not get too over confident.

Last year, second day of rental, mostly cyclist - never driven more than 50cc before... was on brakes to photo some scenic misty forest view on wet road in north mountains but didn't manage to regain control after the front wheel started to drift on the mossy border at ~10km/h... I felt on the right side and the bike slid into the deep concrete ditch in a long scrapping noise :-)

Only the turbin' plastic cover was damaged and I had to rip it out ... but I had to drive and skid at the bottom of the ditch a few hundred meters to get out of it :-) Fortunately no snake down there :-)

Had my plane the same afternoon... I knew the renter, and had a friend staying longer... cost: 700 bahts and 4x1cm scratch on the right arm, thanks to my pants and shoes..

Dozen thousands of km without any scratch since that.

I dropped a rental bike in chiang mai earlier this year... (honda 400)... I pulled out of the dealer, drove 50m down the road and decided to do a little "s" to feel the front end... I the front tire washed out almost immediately and I went sliding down the road.... I had never felt a bike do something like that before and on inspection found the front tire was 20psi (not the recomended 32psi)... So please if youre gonna rent a bike in thialand check it over very carefully before you ride it because the shop probably wont.
On the bright side I was only charged $55 for the dammage Big Grin

Thais have a habit of over inflating tyres. I often offer to check bike pressures at my condo, always a great laugh. 50, 60 psi in a tyre that should be 32, never surprised to see bikes thrown down the road at the first drop of the wet stuff...

Like another safety conscious rider, I also offer to check bikes for proper tire inflation (and tread condition) here at my BK apartment. I experienced the same outcome as another writer on this subject. That said, prior to moving to Bangkok from the U.S., I was a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Instructor. Simple things like proper tire inflation is critical on any bike and can make the difference between a happy-safe ride or one that may result in disaster.

Thanks again and ride safe,

Should also ask how far have they ridden
As I drive over 100,000 a year and in the last 3 years about 320,000km

For the person who rides only to 7 11 for smokes once a week that is a different story

In addition to 'how many kilometers did you drive in the year, also pleas ask if you crash was your falt.
I went down twice, first time was a tractor coming thru a banana cluster, the second was from an oil seal leak that coated my back tire unknown to me. Your question is too simplistic to have any meaning. But your on the right track!

The guy who taught me to ride had a very simple philosophy. If you have a crash you are at fault. Either you weren't paying enough attention, you weren't riding for the conditions or you didn't do a good enough inspection of your bike before riding it.

Good advice!

My one and only crash was in 1975 in UK when a 'boy racer' pulled across my lane very suddenly. Wrote off the bike, cracked my Shoei helmet and a couple of ribs. He had been stopped, waiting for lights to change, lost patience... drove off before the police arrived.
Driving cars and riding bikes are different skills, what you MAY get away with in a car, you WON'T on a bike. If drivers qualified for both car and bike there would be better roadcraft and understanding from all drivers. I give bikes plenty of room because, obviously the biker is far more likely to be injured in even a minor scrape...
Riding a small scooter on major roads makes me nervous; you cannot keep up with the traffic, therefore depend on overtaking vehicles giving you space. Must get a decent bike ASAP.

I have never crashed my daily rider (honda phantom) but I managed to hit a cat on the scooter one day and went down, Nothing too serious but a lot of plastic damage.
