We’re pretty certain that HJC don’t make a bullet-proof motorcycle helmet – yet?
What would you do when confronted by armed robbers trying to steal your motorcycle? We know that we’ll be pretty angry and probably make some attempt to fight off the thieves, but what would we do if those thieves had a gun?
As much as we love our bike, we’re not sure that we’d do what this Brazilian guy did.
Filmed in the San Bernardo do Campo area of Sau Paulo, the bike owner – who doesn’t want to be named for fear of reprisals – survived this horrific bike-jacking through a mixture of both bravado, incredible luck and really poor aim on behalf of the assailant.
“I was so angry I reacted without thinking and was lucky to escape with my life because the criminals were such poor shooters”
Despite being shot in the leg, the victim managed to fight off the attackers by throwing his crash-helmet at the robber who was firing shots at him. Then, as the fight continues, the thief attempting to steal the bike manoeuvres the bike into a wall before running off.
