Video Of Biker Losing Control In ‘Death Wobble’ Might Make You Sell Your Motorcycle

Some love bikes and others see them as deathtraps. This video will put you squarely in one camp.

There was obviously a problem with the bike, but the driver took it out on the highway anyway.

A horrifying video shows the moment a man traveling down Interstate 80E in California lost control of his motorcycle in a death wobble.

In a hard-to-watch video posted online by Erica Hoff, the man had just merged onto the Sacramento highway when his motorcycle started shaking.

Hoff wrote in the caption of the video that she was driving in the fast lane with her kids at the time of the incident.

‘As he merged, his bike would shake and wobble. He sometimes would only have one hand on the handle bars while it was shaking!!’

Hoff said that she knew it was just a matter of time before he lost control, so she grabbed her phone to capture it on video.

She was right.

If you know someone who has been in a motorcycle accident, this video may be hard to watch.

Consider yourself warned.


The guy in this video didn’t die, but was seriously banged up.

She said that after he lost control and was tossed from the bike she immediately pulled over and called 911. Her family risked their own lives to help the man and his bike off to the side of the road. But the man didn’t need help. The motorcyclist miraculously walked himself to the side of the road after the crash.

Hoff wrote in the caption that his nose looked broken, he was bleeding all over and was suffering from one helluva road rash.
