Looks like when he tries to jump defenders.
In all seriousness, really glad he is ok
Someone was watching over him
S he okay?
I cannot believe my eyes. He survived that crash? The bike was shreaded and he was launched...I mean LAUNCHED.
It happened a few months back. He is fine now. Saw him running around at 7-on last week.

He's lucky to be alive, not sure he he doesn't slow down or try and lay his bike down, seems like he had enough time to react
Damn he was lucky to survive that
wow that's nuts. motorcycles in Florida are deathmachines, people completely suck at driving here
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Amazing he is alive and that kid too. Where was that car going? Just rolling slowly out into oncoming traffic heading straight for the front of the bus too. Seemed like oleary didn't slow down either, very bizarre scenario that worked out for everybody. That's why you can't be sane and drive a motorcycle.
drivers in florida are especially bad. all the northerners and old people make this state horrendous
my delivery driver at work saw a motorcyclist get killed a couple weeks ago when he was sitting at a light. some guy ran a red and slammed right into this guy and catapulted him about 15 feet straight up and then he slammed into the ground
I definitely respect people's right to ride a motorcycle and that's great. But man, it seems like the risk/reward ratio isn't ideal.

Players should not be allowed to ride them. College or Pro, eventually you'll become a crash statistic even if you're a good rider.
I just want to know... at what point do you drive around Tallahassee... watching how other people drive... and think to yourself....
You know, I think I can trust them with my life.
A good friend of mine who's a bike enthusiast once told me that you shouldn't get a bike if you're worried about wiping out because it's gonna happen....therefore I've never gotten a bike.

I can't speak for where you're at but in SoFla its the old people, illegal drivers and textaholics who should all be thrown straight in jail. I'm from up north and I've never EVER seen such rampant, truly awful and dangerous drivers in my life. One morning, for fun, I counted the texting drivers on 95 South from Ft Lauderdale to the Pembroke exit during my morning commute. I stopped at 15 before I pissed myself off to the point of ruining my day.
Does anyone even know where their turn signal is located down here? Cops crack down on seatbelts, this should be next. I'm serious. Little bad habits hint at larger ones.
I work in downtown Miami and on two different occasions been nearly t-boned by people flat out running red lights. On city streets, these assbags are doing at least 50. The last time was especially scary. I was getting on to 395 to go home from work, it's about 11pm. I had a green light right before the on-ramp and I just got this weird feeling to check to my right. I look and this lunatic doing at least 60 just barrels through the red light on to the ramp. I chased him, finally caught up alongside him on 95 North and he never even looked over at me. Just doing 85 likes it's all good. I'd be in jail if I got him to pull over. Crazy son of a bitch.

Just had a friend, who was an LT in the Army at Ft. Hood, die from a motorcycle crash this summer.
The risk isn't worth it to me, even though I'm sure I would have a blast riding on one.
He survived that?! That's absolutely insane. Glad he is okay tho
Grew up on dirt bikes and had a Harley for 5 years and then sold it. Could never relax and enjoy the ride for fear of some idiot getting me killed. The red light cameras are a good start, but there need to be more of them.
They're called Donorcycles for a reason
Road rash on his hands or was he wearing gloves?
I have a client that used to ride his Harley in Manhattan. He moved down to the Tampa Bay Area rode it twice and sold it. Stati g that both times he almost died.
It always trips me out when I go to Florida & see someone riding a bike without a helmet. It catches my eye every time.
I would expect schools to adopt the NFL ways. No riding motorcycles while under contract with us. If you do and/or get hurt while doing so, you void your contract and give us our money back.
No riding motorcycles while under scholarship with us or forfeit your scholarship. It's a business decision in both NFL and College. Protect your investment(s).
Apparently O'Leary halls ass on that thing everywhere, driving 30-40 MPH over the speed limit, even in residential neighborhoods. I'm glad he is okay, never want anybody to get hurt, but considering how much his grandfather likes giving other people advice, maybe he should give his grandson some advice and tell him he can't ride the thing anymore.
When your health is literally your career, why the hell would you do things which place it in such danger?
