I copied this from another site I belong to, good to know a little more info about it:

Actually I went to the motojournal site and read most of the comments posted about the vid and the riders response.

He was a test rider for their online magazine. They were filming a review of the bike and they thought that would make a good shot of the bike. Catching the saddle bag on the post was an accident and we saw the results. The rider sprained a thumb and had bruises everywhere. He decided that the video should be posted despite possible ridicule as it was an pretty impressive fall. Also he thought it was a good reminder to be weary when riding and especially himself when filming.

He thought it would be a good reminder to be weary, as in tired, when riding??? No wonder he crashed and not exactly good advice to be handing out. I suddenly don't feel sorry for this guy.

I'm sure that was meant to say "wary".

I agree, wrong spelling and meaning of the word, to be aware I'm sure is what he meant.

I always do my best to practice ATGATT. After seeing this video I now realize I am not as prepared as I thought I was... I'm missing a parachute.

Seriously - glad to hear the rider came of it with only sprain and some bruses. Unfortunately the bike didn't so good.

I know. It's a peeve of mine as it's for an online magazine. They can't spell but they can keep the camera panning as the guy falls into the boat. Seems the photographer is the only one with any kind of skill.

Well, what I posted is what someone from another bike site posted, he did not say it was from the online magazine writers. There are plenty of people who spell wrong or use words incorrectly, even on this site , and yes, it bothers me to some point too. But we can usually figure out what is meant by the context so I don't let it bother me so much.
