And that is why I watch videos like this.....so I don't have to learn the hard way.

Those bikes are obviously going faster than the cagers but no question where the fault lays. When I drive to work there have been times that I've not noticed a fellow biker until he has zipped past me. On our bikes especially going faster than traffic we just need to be extra cautious that we are now even more invisible.

The video shows an accident... there's no body on display.

...and as I mentioned before, I don't know that I buy the accident we see and the bike/tractor are the same incident/location.
It looks like dense brush etc in the first part, when it goes to hand held...it's sparse, there's a square median area around the sign. It's missing in the hand-held video. Compare the quality of the road markings... kinda faded and sloppy, then fresh, sharp and clean. It's a two lane road, then in the middle of the video it's divided highway.

That is a very good observation buddy. You're absolutely right. I watched the video again and the bike stops in an open spot that is clear with approximately 6 feet radius. In the second hand-held clip, the bike is in a "combine" (is that what they're called?). It's like it was two different clips or they poorly faked the second clip to mimic the first one.

Nevertheless, it should be a lesson for all of us.
