I'm certain that no one lives his/her life with a total disregard of risk, and it's ludicrous to pretend that people do. Everyone manages risk to some degree because we recognize that their are consequences to totally disregarding it. It doesn't matter what "the force" says or doesn't say, if you cross a busy high-speed highway without first checking for traffic, you're taking a risk that will probably kill you.ap888 wrote: ↑Thu Sep 20, 2018 8:53 pmYea it is ok to do all of the above no one should judge if it’s right or wrong the force does not judge...I’m am sure you see the videos of ppl urban climbing cranes hanging off with one hand...jumping from planes with no parachute...driving super bikes at 300km in traffic danger is everywhere 1000000 ways to die...u don’t decide god/the force decides when it’s your timeRickI wrote: ↑Thu Sep 20, 2018 7:42 pmSo, it is ok to play Russian Roulette with a gun in your mouth or stumble around on a high speed roadway drunk because if it isn't your time, no harm? What about using common sense keeping the gun out of your mouth in the first place, off the highway and staying out of squalls, particularly ones that look like this. Common sense, training and good procedures have important places in life, good health and longevity.

A video of a squall with all those kiters waiting to get messed up.
This guy was apparently hit by a 40 kt. gust while launching and was dragged overland slamming through a vineyard 400 m or over 1300 ft. likely at high speed. He apparently didn't appreciate the hazards of the storm he was heading out into. He isn't the first guy to do this by far nor is he likely to be the last. This was totally avoidable and remarkably, guys are debating in other venues whether to even go out into a monster like this with kiting gear.
There is also no statistic on people getting injured because they first launched their motorbike and then jumped on it while moving. Hence, according to your logic, that approach must be safer.
