Biker crashes on roundabout, faith in humanity restored (video)

A guy, somewhere in England (one supposes, by the accents) was riding home on his motorbike when his back wheel slipped out from under him in a roundabout (a traffic circle, common over there, less so here in the US).

Later the paramedics told him that the circle always had diesel fuel on it from a nearby gas station.

There are two interesting things about the video. The first is the person who saw a car accident with a man lying in the road and decided this would be a good time to drive by and not stop.

The second is all the other people who came running to help the guy, and wouldn’t take “I’m ok” for an answer. I especially liked the men refusing to let the guy pick up his own bike – they were going to do it for him.
