what i seen on most accidents with bikes is that if the bike looks like then the rider most be in good condition (could be worse)
or if the bike looks good then the rider most be f*cked up relly bad!!
or some times, some times... its all the way around, they both are f*cked

i always stop on the the corner or the car infront of me, that gives me room to ether get away from a car that is about to hit me or... if i get hit then i'm mostlikly not going to be stuck in the middle of both cars (i always get behind a car and try to see the driver on the side mirrors)

Will you agree to stop driving by a certain age? And how will you get around then?

A 90 yr old men pulled out in front of me about a year ago and cause me to fractured pelvis and tail bone.

they need to do a driving test not just a visual test to let them drive.
i talked to a police officer and he said that all they need to pass is the eye test and they are good to go.

no matter how old they are or slow they are... if you can pass this reading test then you are good to go!

if they start doing this driving test for them i am sure most of this people be off the streets by now.

how would they get around??? well.. if it was me, then i would call someone in my family to come get me to take me somewhere other then me trying to driver out there and killing someone (they shouldn't be driving in the first place anyways.)

you know why they let them drive right??? money for the goverment and medical.
hospital make their money with a bunch of old people for their medication and their regular visits.

edit: IMO....

Wow, I always worry about getting hit like that. I know people say to keep your hand on the throttle, but I don't generally fancy playing frogger either. I will jump to the side and dump the bike if I think I am going to get hit.

man , that was an eye opener.
the lady was genuinely regrettful for what she did.
I hate the ones that do hit & runs.
She owned up to her mistake.
Glad no body was hurt , that was scary.

FWIW I know several people who had this happen to over the years. You are always better off to go verticle and end up on the hood of the car doing the hitting.

To the side you could get pinned of fall into traffic, staying on the scooter is
going to get you smashed.

Dude was uber lucky.

To summarize so far the lessons learned are:
1) Don't stop directly and close behind the car in front (aka "Give yourself and out")
2) After sudden stops be aware of incoming fools (aka "Keep your eyes moving")
3) Ride wearing brown pants for situations like this...

Oh, you mean ball bearing wanabies on asphalt. I was thinking in general. I love a nice gravel road.

Didnt freak me out much (guessing its from all the other posts hyping about how he is ok, before viewing it....saw thread on phone, and vid didnt play)

Now at home, I just thought about the physical aspect of "EJECTOR-SEAT". No really. I bet those were some sharp forces, even if going up a foot or two. Bet he felt a little stunted in the spine for a few days.... and maybe the man-sack.
