Run in Hard.

Whether to run in a new bike soft or Hard usually generates some debate. This is a friend of a friends one month old ducati diavel taking the extreme option last week.

Should have mentioned that the guy is miraculously ok. Wouldn’t have posted the pic if he’d been hurt.

Despite being dragged twenty feet under the car (see trail form bike but no car tyre contact) he managed to get out and swing for the guy in the Honda.

The Ducati rider pulled up to stop behind a traffic que. The guy in the Honda was following too close and wasn’t paying attention or didn’t see him stopping but either way he couldn’t stop in time and ran right over the top.

Traffic ques would be for the freeway, that is not the freeway, that's a back road, sounds like you got the modified story...
