I am glad he seems ok. At least it was just a GSX-R.

She seems to give a if he is ok and didnt haul out of there. Becoming a rare sight with cars hitting bikes.

It's crazy to think that a seemingly sweet old lady could end your life in a single moment just by thoughtlessly driving and talking on the phone.

I've been hit by idiots twice like that. Once at a stop light on Veterans Hwy in La.
I wound up on her hood and the bike wound up under the truck in front of me.
The second time was on West road in Copperfield at a stop sign. Right as I was pulling away a dumb got me. There were two moto cops right there that saw the whole thing.

At least the guy in the video wasn't hurt too badly.

Be careful, there's lots of dumbasses out there texting, playing with the radio or just have their head up their instead of driving.

been there, done that. I managed to walked away, as well. the guy that hit me tried to tell the insurance adjuster that I "rode around him on a sidewalk and suddenly cut in front of him." wtf?!?

I won the case, needless to say. jackass.

I've also had a moving van suddenly back up over me while sitting at a red light. hit and run. that was a bad day, too (but I'm still here, so obviously not too bad).

dang that dude is pretty fortunate he came off the bike clean instead of buckling under. if this ever happens to me im gonna have to muster every ounce of self control i have not to knock them the out.

i do a ton of commuting and have only had one instance where i had to split and move around the car and the jackass behind me barely stopped to avoid smashing into the car i was behind. he completely took over my space... always been super paranoid about that so i keep an eye on my mirrors until the person behind me totally stops.
