In this session of the Motorcycle Mentor Podcast, I explain low-side and high-side crashes, what causes them, and how you can avoid them. Both types of crashes are often single-vehicle accidents, meaning the rider wrecks without having another vehicle involved. A little head knowledge – and some electronics – can help you avoid these crashes.

More specifically, in this session you’ll find out about:

  • What is a low-side crash and what causes it.
  • What is a high-side crash and what causes it.
  • What you should do to avoid these crashes.
  • Why many motorcycle instructors believe the “overuse of your rear brake” is a major cause of single-vehicle motorcycle accidents.
  • What simple piece of electronics would significantly reduce the number of low-side and high-side crashes.

Listen to the podcast then watch the three videos on my website at http://motorcyclementor.com/mmp-09-low-side-and-high-side-crashes-and-how-to-avoid-them-podcast/. Every motorcycle rider needs to understand what a low-side and high-side accident look like.

Note: I don’t like watching gory motorcycle crash videos. I don’t think it’s respectful to the person injured or killed. For that reason, I will never post videos on the site where the rider is seriously injured. In the videos below, the rider’s motorcycle and ego were the only things seriously damaged.

And lastly, if you haven’t already done so, would you take a minute to leave a quick rating and review of the podcast on iTunes by clicking on the link below. It would be extremely helpful for the show and I’m aiming for 100 5-star ratings before the end of the year. That would be awesome for a motorcycle-related podcast.
