With my three year anniversary as a card-carrying MOron rapidly approaching, I’ve been thinking over my time working at Motorcycle.com. As the staff photographer, I get to spend a little more time out of the office than my coworkers because I’m usually charged with shooting the bike tests – not just those that I’m writing. This translates into more saddle time for me – not a bad deal for someone who has chosen to devote the bulk of his adult life (if you can call it that) to motorcycling.
The title of this week’s video is “Unbelievably lucky scooter rider”, but if he were truly lucky, his close brush with death wouldn’t have ever happened to begin with. Actually, luck wouldn’t even have factored into the equation if the rider been paying more attention to the traffic in front of him and was more cautious.
