:shock::shock::shock: That was not a speed bump, that was a death trap for almost any motorcyclist, even the officers that slowed way down were getting some air. I hope the officer was not injured too badly.
And I also wonder if he was not paying attention to road signs or if there was no warning sign posted for the speed bump.

At least his body cleared the bike, as they both came down.

As I was watching it, one of my thoughts was, how it doesn't seem that the police dress well for the crash. Maybe I don't understand the safety gear in play, past the helmet, gloves and boots.

He did an awful lot of tumbling and sliding, and I hope he came out okay.

The human instinct to stand up though was unfulfilled, and that's not a good sign.

I was thinking the same thing as his shirt and pants didn't appear to have any rips or tears in them after that. The white shirt wasn't so whit anymore, but it appeared intact.

Does anyone know the reason for this video? While the crash looks real, there are no other vehicles on the street (other than the other police bikes) and the only pedestrians look like a swat teem.

Not sure where it was, but I saw it on youtube as being a lead in for a presidential motorcade - that could explain why so many police on the scene. They already had the roads closed and no other traffic at the time of the incident, could also explain the video footage.
