So what happens when you don't wear your motorcycle gear anyway? Ideally, nothing happens, however, this video breaks down what could happen to riders who don't follow ATGATT (All The Gear, All The Time). The video is a simulation and explanation of what could happen to you (not me, just you) if you don't wear your motorcycle gear. It includes dialogue from a surgeon, a motorcyclist, and a special effects make up artist. The video is designed to scare you straight into a one piece leather unitard and full face helmet faster than you "ouch!"
Have a look.
Just saw this Moto GP video from YouMotorcycle's YouTube feed. It's the full race from the 2007 Moto GP at Barcelona Catalunya, and an epic battle between Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner, and Dani Pedrosa. Can you remember who wins?Read More »

What is a motorcyclist's life worth? Our Russian friends vshleme made this video to show you dollar per dollar how much your life is worth.

We completely missed the ball on the Motorcycle Film Festival, and not for lack of press either. Brooklyn is an 8 hour ride from Toronto, I might just have made a weekend trip out of it! Alas it was not to be.
At any rate, the Motorcycle Film Festival (or MMF, which also stands for Must've been F***in' Fun - for those who made it) couldn't have come at a better time. Motorcycle videos are at a height we haven't seen since the 1970s, and these days the stars are the riders themselves. Regular folks like you and me, but I'll get to that later.
For now here are the winners from the first annual / first ever Motorcycle Film Festival, along with some video trailers.
