Motorcycle Crash Tech [video]

ITALY: When a rider exceeds the limit of that traction they fall. When that happens itÍs generally called a Low-Side. The name is derived from the fact that both the bike and the rider go down to the ground in a gravity assisted fall. Older riding gear did little to prevent injuries, but crashing in todayÍs riding gear remarkably minimizes the damage and the danger to the rider. (Photo Credit: © Alpinestars)
